What fun! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the foods of the region. The different foods and beverage combined were great.

Our guide Xantal was wonderful. The tour company had suggested we postpone the tour due to the heavy rains of tropical storm Cindy but we love the rain and persisted. Xantal was a great sport about it. The foods were all delicious, but the Cochinita Pibil young pig cooked in a pit one of those taste treats that defies hyperbole. I will do this again on my next trip here and take better notes next time.

As a foodie, I wanted my first trip to PDC to be amazing and this excursion was the perfect conduit! From the first stop, to the last, our tastebuds were very happy!! Our tour guide was very personable and easy to talk with. It was a wonderful primer. Would love to see new excursions added to continue our appreciation of this region of the world.

This tour was perfect, just what we were looking for. Xantal took us to several eateries and described how their preparation and cooking methods were authentic. The food was very tasty! We also went to an open air market for the fresh produce and other ingredients. Xantal is very personable and knowledgeable- a perfect tour guide.

A great tour. I would recommend this to everyone. It gets you out of the fifth avenue grind and into areas of Playa Del Carmen you would not go. The food is great and it is REAL Mexican food! Very knowledgeable and very well done!!

This tour was the first thing we did in our 8 day trip and it was totally worth it! We had delicious interesting food in 5 locations and we really enjoyed the trip to a market. We went back to the market multiple times to get unusual fruits and also enjoy the refreshing smoothies sold by the attached restaurant. Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and fun to talk with - very low key. It was like hanging out with friends eating really good cheap food - what more can you ask for?!
