Delicious Night in Polanco!
Beautiful night in Polanco with Viri! She is a chef that knows good food. We went to seven delicious restaurants. From the history of the city to the history of the food, Viri covered it all. Definitely one of the best food experiences we have ever had. Highly recommend!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
Highly recommend. Our guide Viri is fabulous! Not only is she a chef, but an accomplished traveler herself (Greece, India, Caribbean). Viri lead us on a beautiful walking tour stopping and sampling delicious foods, and sharing her knowledge of cuisines and area history. If we should return we would definitely take this tour again. Simply wonderful!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
My boyfriend and I stayed in Polonco during our Mexico City trip, and I booked this tour as a way to get to know the neighborhood. So glad I did! Our host Bili did a great job explaining the different types of food we sampled at each restaurant. We've revisited two of the places that were on our tour, one of them multiple times!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
Due to a very busy weekend, we ended up with Chef Eduardo as our guide. This was perfect! He taught us a bunch about local ingredients and culinary practices. The locations and dishes selected were a great variety of the cuisines offered in CDMX. The food was amazing.... but go with a big appetite because you'll need it! We left with full stomachs and a good friend!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
We really enjoyed this tour! The types of foods & styles of restaurants were varied and a good representation of Polanco. The pace was good, we did not feel rushed, nor did we linger too long at any locale. We actually went back to one of the restaurants, Guzina Oaxaca, for lunch during our stay. Lois did a great job! He was very knowledgable, informative and personable. Lois clearly enjoys his job and is passionate about food! We highly recommend this tour w/ Lois!

Polanco Food Tour in Mexico City (Private and Smalls Groups Only)
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.

When to Get There

Many businesses and shops close between 2pm and 4pm, and traffic can be heavy around that time. Mexico City’s peak tourist season typically runs from November to May, so it may be more difficult to get a table at Polanco’s popular restaurants then.
