Wonderful tour. Our guide Luis was so knowledgeable and funny. We had a great time with him. And the food was fantastic. A beautiful area of Mexico City to walk around. Definitely worth doing.

5/5 amazing! Best tour guide and just overall spread of tastings was amazing! A little bit of everything you can imagine and just the stories and the history to each food item was greatly appreciated. I dont think I have one favorite but all of the restaurants were my favorite and yes dont come with a full stomach because you will eat a lot of food! Best experience and it was all walking in a beautiful little part of mexico city.

We loved our food tour of Polanco, and because we were the only ones, we got the private-tour treatment. Luis was great and gave us not only history but insider recommendations so juicy I'm not sharing it! We ended up re-visting most of the spots during our stay.

Great guide. Great food. Better stories.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

I highly recommend you do this on your first day to get to know Mexican foods.
On the day of the tour, I feel terribly sorry as I was running late. So, what I suggest doing is, if your hotel is far from Polanco area, it is best to go a little early as the traffic can get quite crowded.
The guide was very knowledgeable and informative of the history of Mexico as well as the food and the selection of tastings was excellent. At the end of the tour, he also asked restaurant staff to call a taxi driver to pick me up, great hospitality!, would definitely recommend!!!
