A great and fun intro to San Miguel!
TatiPavz, Jul 2022
This was so much fun! The tour was a great intro to San Miguel, the local food and the many ways to enjoy tequila and mezcal. Our guide Oscar was knowledgeable, fun and helpful. Within the span of a couple of hours we got to know San Miguel a lot better. That aside, it's a great way to spend the evening as a solo traveler too!
Great private tour
Blanche_L, May 2022
Our guide Oscar is very knowledgeable and very well liked. He took his time to explain the history of SMA and also what is the difference between tequila and mezcal! We definitely recommend this tour to our friends! Oh, and the tacos are delicious!
A perfect evening activity in SMA!

Great introduction to tacos in San Miguel de Allende
Suzanne_H, Apr 2022
My husband and I had an amazing time with Oscar as our guide. We have already spread the word to our relatives going later this year that they have to take this tour and to ask for Oscar. The food was delicious with plenty of variety. The drinks were yummy and fun to learn about, and the guide was charming and informative. Excellent tour that I highly recommend.
Tequila/Taco is a must!!
Vivian_T, Apr 2022

Our tour guide, Pascal, is a knowledgeable, interesting multitalent! An impromptu music performance with 2 guitar players we met on the street, detailed history and knowing everything about tacos and tequila are just a few things to mention!
Tacos
MaryKay_B, Mar 2022
Our guide Oscar was great. The tacos we had were each unique and very tasty. Fun evening with friends
Tasty, educational experience!
Lisa_J, Mar 2022
Oscar is certainly well versed in his knowledge of Tequila & Mezcal. We sampled several different types ( full 1 or 2 oz pours) and a couple of tequila cocktails as well. The rooftop sunset was perfect with the Tamarind Margarita. We sampled several different kinds of tacos as well - a couple of new ones for me. (a taco shell made with Jicama- yum!) Oscar included lots of historical facts about SMA as we walked, making the tour very enjoyable, informative and delicious! Thanks Oscar 😋
Great tour in San Miguel

Culture and food
Cynthia_V, Jan 2022
Guide was extremely personable and knowledgeable. If you want to understand Mexican culture with added excellent food and drinks this is a great way to do so. Loved this tour!
Taco and Tequila walk - Terifico!
Patricia_S, Jan 2022
Our guide, Oscar, did a marvelous job in sharing the local food scene. He took us to hip roof tops, local favorites and culturally relevant restaurants. He was able to share with us not only food and cultural traditions but also his love for and the history of San Miguel. He was extremely knowledgeable and varied the tour with our preferences and tastes. He has perfect people and language skills. Don’t miss this tour!
A great evening walking around this charming town with our guide Oscar.
Ellent1, Jan 2022
A great evening walking around this charming town with our guide Oscar. Oscar was a terrific guide with a deep understanding of food in this culture. I was hoping to also get a nice tour of the town, even though it was a food tour and Oscar delivered. He had a great understanding of the history of the town and its people. The food was all excellent, more than just tacos. It was a good variety with exceptional mole and a unique jicama taco, which was my favorite. The tequila tasting could have been better. A previous tour I did in Cabo gave us a tasting comparing several different kinds of tequila. This tour only did a shot of mezcal and a shot of tequila. I didn’t really care as I am not a big drinker but if you really want to compare tequila, this is not the tour. It really was a great combination of good local food tasting, again more than tacos, and a town walking tour. I highly recommend it, especially with the delightful Oscar guiding you.
Amazing and delicious experience
Oscar_C, Dec 2021
Óscar was AMAZING. He was so knowledgeable about the restaurants and San Miguel. We definitely will be using him again when we return. The food was great and the drinks great! We met people from everywhere and had an amazing time!
Fantastic time!
Darla_O, Dec 2021
What a wonderful time with Oscar! We learned so much about the city and the food was fabulous! I highly recommend this tour!
Delicious food in great company.
Devin_S, Nov 2021
Oscar our tour guide was so smart, friendly and engaging and he picked amazing spots for us to try that provided a great variety of history, flavors and experiences. I wish I had time to take another tour with him.
