This was a private tour, one on one, so the biggest benefit of the tour was the tour guide himself. We spent a lot of time talking about Mexico City, its history, its culture, and its people. That was the best part of the tour. He first introduced me to food at a couple of local places that created tacos from cheaper cuts of meat like tripe, tongue, etc. Things I wouldn't normally eat, but they were actually very tasty and I'm really glad I got to try them! I wouldn't have known what to try and which vendors to choose on my own. We ended up at a nice coffee shop and ate some very tasty dishes. My only negative is that at this restaurant the amount of food was too much. I would have preferred to have smaller amounts so I could try more things. But the food was excellent, and the guide was wonderful. It was like having lunch with a friend introducing me to his country's cuisine! Perfect.

Great - highly recommended if you want to taste a few different things from street vendors and want to make sure you choose the right ones.

If you came to Mexico hoping to try as much of the local cuisine as possible, this is the tour to take! We had zucchini blossom quesadillas, cheese and bean stuffed tortillas called tlacoyos, cow's brain, eye and tongue tacos, Mexico's famous cochinita pibil, Spanish style tapas at the local market and finished it off with a stop at the famous Cafe Tacuba for chocolate and buñuelos. The walking is welcome to settle the food and burn off some of the calories you're putting on. Plus, the tour does not run until too late giving you the opportunity to return to one of the stops for dinner!

This was a super trip. My guide and his delightful family walked me around the streets, we sampled lots of different foods and a delicious chocolate drink. From street stalls to fancy restaurants, this is a tour that should always be included whilst in Mexico City.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

The tour guide was amazing in her knowledge and pride of the city and food of Mexico. Before the tour I was indifferent to Tacos, now I am a Taco gourmet! My whole family enjoyed the tour and that is saying a lot given our differing tastes. We also got a Metro (subway) ride, dispelling all of our US fears about Mexico City public transportation and saving us a bunch of cab fares. Very Highly recommended.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2015

Per our voucher we were told that the tour would begin at the Hostel Amigo on Isabel Catholica, yet the tour guide was told to pick us up at the Hostal Amigo Zocalo. The tour guide called the Hostel Amigo where we were at and then asked us to meet him at the Cathedral, about a 20 minute walk. The frustrating thing is that we had just been there prior to walking to the Hostal -- so 40 minutes extra walking. We did enjoy the tour and again the tour guide was pleasant and informative, but we ended up walking a total of eight miles on the tour, which was tough for our 83 year old traveler. Again, we should have been notified just how much walking was involved.
