What To Expect

Meet a driver at your hotel for an evening departure, then set out on a gourmet trip in a comfortable, private vehicle (the exact schedule is up to you). You’ll explore a few neighborhoods, each with a distinctive feel and culture.

Enjoy a roving dinner that’s designed for maximum flavor, including a variety of tacos, one of Mexico’s most iconic street foods. Throughout the evening, the guide will share insights into the places you pass, stories about each neighborhood, and key background information on the dishes.

When you’re ready for a drink, duck into a local establishment to try mezcal—a smoky, more-flavorful answer to tequila—and sip some locally-made craft beer. In addition to tacos and drinks, the tour also includes some surprise dishes that change with availability and the season, so you can experience what’s fresh and interesting.

After a night of food and exploring, this tour concludes with a return transfer to your hotel.

Mercado de Flores

Today, the area is part of the extensive extension of downtown Mexico City, just southeast of the Historic Center. In the past, this area was located at the eastern end of the Aztec island-city Mexico-Tenochtitlan, facing the Lake of Xochimilco. The area was full of artificial islands called chinampas for agriculture and service ports to the thousands of canoes and boats that passed by on their way to the markets of the city, especially the main market of Tlatelolco. The exchange traffic decreased after the Conquest of Mexico, but it continued to be very important. However, during the colonial period, the lake and chinampas areas slowly dried up. For the nineteenth century, the area only had channels, with the main Canal de la Viga, limiting river traffic. By the middle of the 20th century, these would also dry up and be refilled. The traffic was then focused on other main streets built there.4 Throughout the history of the area there have been various markets and markets here.8 The market was established along with others such as the Sonora Market to modernize the markets on the east side of the city in the 50s.4 7 The market of Jamaica was inaugurated on September 23, 1957, and together with the Sonora Market, it was the first to offer parking for cars.8

Colonia Roma

The area that currently occupies was what was known until the late nineteenth century as the Potreros de la Romita, located west of what was the town of La Romita -located at that time on the shores of Mexico City, and originated in a prehispanic town called Aztacalco. Those paddocks were divided by the Calzada de Chapultepec, SA Land Company, whose main shareholder was Walter Orrin, 6 who, in addition to being known for his ideas to improve and renovate Mexico City, owned a famous circus in the country in those years, in which acted the famous English clown Richard Bell, who belonged to the prestigious Jockey Club and was part of the highlights in the Porfirian high society. Since then and until now, the names that lead the streets of the colony are those of the Mexican cities that Cirque Orrín visited during his tours through the interior of the country, deciding to name the streets with the names of the places where more applause He received.

Tacos Galore, and more!
Jerome_E, Jan 2022
There were 2 of us plus the guide and the driver who picked us up from the hotel. We went to three places where they had different tacos, plus the market called Jamaica (not pronounced like the country) where plenty of flowers and arrangements can be bought). I totally liked all the tacos I ate, plus drinks. Had no issues with them, honestly. They were different from those I have in my neck of the woods in Queens NYC where plenty of Mexicans live.. And I also liked the corn with mayonnaise and spices. I am surprised by seeing plenty of people showing up to get tacos in these places at night. This is really worth getting introduced to tacos varieties and other local food delicacies.

It was an amazing evening eating amazing tacos and exploring local culture. It was the best way to start our first night in México City.
Great Experience
Brent_G, Apr 2021
This was really a fun and educational tour. Carlos is an excellent guide and the spots that were picked were all non tourist type places..also the variety of different types of tacos was great. Having a driver was key as well because he would drop us off at the front of every taco place and pick us up as well. The only thing we had to do was eat and drink! If you've seen the taco chronicles, this is a great way to taste a lot of the different style tacos they feature in that documentary series. Highly recommended!
What a blast!
Amit_S, Apr 2021
Elysio (our driver) and Carlos (tour guide) were fantastic! They were punctual and picked us up from our hotel. They took us to 4 different places where we ate 9 tacos (we had options to have more but we were stuffed) and tastings of mezcal, beers, and cocktails. Carlos was very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about the food and drinks. We were able to tour parts of Mexico City we otherwise may not have ventured to and try tacos that locals' favorites. My advice to anyone taking this tour is not to eat anything all day as you will eat more than enough on this tour. I highly recommend this tour.

A very good tour. We did lots of non tourist Taco spots and our tour guide and driver were excellent and very flexible with our schedule. A good fun night. Thanks to Carlos and Anna. We can thoroughly recommend them as excellent guides.

Michelle B, Oct 2017
A safe, professional and insightful tour combining amazing food, drink, sights and company. This tour was truly outstanding. Despite our tour taking place on the busiest night in the City the Day of the Dead Parade, restricting vehicular access to our hotel, Alejandra and Vicky pulled out all the stops to ensure our tour went ahead on time, as planned. Alexandra is great host and enabled us to taste both food and drink, alongside locals, in places that we would not have visited without her expert guidance. You will not go hungry! Highly recommended.
Excellent, would highly recommend...
Maria S, Jun 2017
Excellent, would highly recommend! Private driver and guide took us to all of the best spots that tourists probably don't visit, it was mostly locals. Yummy!
Alejandra is an amazing tour guide...
John M, Mar 2017
Alejandra is an amazing tour guide! As soon as my friends and I met her at our hotel we knew we were in for the total inside scoop on Mexican street food. We had out of this world food like esquites, carne aracherra, and cecina. Absolutely loved sampling Mezcal and artisanal Mexican beer! Tacos al Pastor anyone? Alejandro and her charming driver Vicky will take you to incredible eateries!! I learned so much from this tour and I've traveled extensively throughout Mexico. My friends and I couldn't stop talking about how wonderful the food was on this tour. Mil Gracias Alejandra!
Really good range of food and drinks...
Matthew W, Nov 2016
Really good range of food and drinks with pick up and drop off straight to your hotel. Several taco stops and a taste of mescal and craft beers in Condesa and Rosa districts.
