The majority of markets were clearly off the usual tourist agenda, and our guide was attentive, informative and engaging. 10/10, it was my favorite tour I've ever taken - I would absolutely recommend it!

It's pretty good!! I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide took us hang around and explain so much for us. We ate a lot, went to the local markets, took the local transportation, which is an good experience to know more about the real life of local people and their history. And it's a small group, so we can enjoy more. And i have to say my tour guide is amazing! That was his first time to lead a group, but he did a good job. He's very responsible and nice!!

This is a great experience for anybody who has chosen this trip. I highly reccomend this tour as it is the only way that you will experience and see as to how the local people live and behave. The tour guy that we had namely Rodrigo is a very knowledgeable person explaining all the city's history as well informing you of the day to day life of a mexicoan person. You will get to see the various markets and taste the local food. Dont's miss it and you will not reget it.

This was an absolutely wonderful tour! When visiting another country, what better way to see how the people live their lives than to visit their markets, and this tour was perfect in that regard. There were 4 or 5 markets visited at a leisurely pace, to include the Rodriguez market and it's interesting sociological history and murals. The sprawling Mercado de la Merced with emphasis on the magic section. And also the flower market, which imo is spectacular, one of the best I have seen anywhere.
And the tour was so much more than the markets. Our guide, Rodrigo, had so much to relate about Mexico City: it's history and what lies underneath and why the streets are so undulating , superstitions, cultural struggles, ethnicities, the food of course, and even an introduction to riding the bus and subway system. There were also 3 or 4 stops along the way to sample the fare at market fast food venues all delicious I wish I had not eaten breakfast!. Thanks Rodrigo, for making this one of the best tours I have experienced anywhere, and at 39, an absolute steal!

What a wonderful tour. We were guided on this tour by lovely Evelyn. What a joy to learn about the markets, foods, fruits and culture from ever so enthusiastic Evelyn. We leant how the market was so central a place to the Mexican society. The frescos in the first market were a delight. We tried so many different foods, fruits and vegetables. The smells of food, the fragrance of flowers and the colours of fruits and vegetables were memorable indeed. Thanks Evelyn for the treat!!

Each market was a different feast for the senses! The food was good, the flowers fragrant, and the sights wonderful. Our guide provided wonderful historical context for each market, and was delightful all around. Upon our request, she also gave us a few minutes to shop for Day of the Dead decorations and advised as to how much we should expect to pay.

This tour was a great deal. We visited three different markets. The first was a small food market where we were able to sample tamales and a local drink. The second market we visited was more of a goods market. The third market was a large food and flower market. At this market we were able to sample many different foods, almost enough to keep me full for the rest of the day. After this we were given the option of a fourth market, a souvenir market but our tour group was tired. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. I highly recommend this tour while in Mexico City.

We were fortunate enough to have EVA all to ourselves for this early morning tour of the markets. IT was exciting and useful and very interesting. There were few disappointments in tha some things were not open or well lit , but the overall goals were met and Eva did a great job with us. Thanks.

This tour is an amazing value. You'll have the opportunity to taste the food of Mexico City while discovering hidden cultural treasures such world renowned murals and love potions. Our tour guide, Sofia, was fantastic. She's energetic, knowledgeable, and was a delight to talk with. She was so helpful, in fact, that she helped me figure out the subway system and map a route back to my hotel--she even gave me advice as to what times I should avoid the subway due to rush hour people traffic. I highly recommend this tour on your first day in the city it'll introduce you to foods that you may want to indulge later in your trip and get you acquainted with the city's public transportation. Tip: you can skip breakfast if you're starting this tour in the morning. Included in the tour are plenty of food samples. I have a pretty healthy appetite and even I was full by the end of the tour.

This tour was really fantastic for my first day in Mexico City. It was slow-paced and really interesting. Rodrigo is AWESOME. The other person on my tour never showed up so it was only me. Even though it was a solo tour, Rodrigo made it fun and interesting. He knows every corner of the city and really cares about showing you a good time. I ate until I couldnt have another bite and it was all very delicious. The markets were offbeat and quirky. It felt like having a friend show you around the city.

This tour is a great way to experience Mexico City as an every-day local! We walked through the city center a bit with a guide explaining a lot!, toured markets, road the bus, and took the metro. We stopped for several tastes of different snacks! I was stuffed afterwards! This tour is a lot of walking and meandering through the markets. I would definitely recommend comfortable, weather suitable clothes and shoes. Bring spare cash/smaller change so you can pick up a few things if they catch your eyes! I got some delicious fruits and a traditional apron.

This was one of our favorite tours. It was with Urban Adventures and the whole tour is mostly walking and you do get to use city transit between markets. This gave us a great overview of life outside of the tourist areas and to see what many of the locals do on a daily basis. We got to try a variety of food and experience the diversity of their markets. Our guide was fun and had great knowledge of the markets and the overall city. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
