A perfect tour
Chip_R

Our guide was very knowledgable about the food and the culture behind it. We never felt rushed and she did a great job communicating. The food destinations are exactly what you want on a tour - places you wouldn't find yourself. 10/10

Laura was our tour guide and was wonderful. She studied gastronomy and history at a prestigious Mexico City University and was well qualified in talking about the history and traditions of food in Mexico. All of the food tasting experiences were enjoyable and memorable. We wanted to have our food tour in the historic district although the locations we visited are now mainly tucked into commercial areas. Laura showed concern for us all along the way and is a delightful young lady.

Eating like a local with friends in Mexico City

We had an absolutely fantastic day with our guide Kiomi. She was the epitome of what we hoped for in a guide. This tour was a mix of historical context, exploring old town with friends, and absolutely delicious food from all over the region. We toured local restaurants, the markets, and of course a cantina or two. My only advice is that if you want to make it through every course, don't feel the need to finish every bite during the first few hours because some of our favorite dishes were towards the end. We can't recommend this tour enough!

Fabulous food
Margaret_B

Laura was a great guide and was accommodating to everyone's food situation. We had a LOT of food and most of it was very good. It would have been nice to have an idea of what and how much in advance as one of the last stops was the best and we were too full to fully enjoy it! There is not too much in the first half but later there was quite a bit and perhaps the route could be adjusted a little. Overall it was a great experience.

Thank you, Margaret! We're so happy that you had such a nice time with us. And thank you for your feedback, we take everything into consideration. We hope to have you again on some other time!

This was supposed to be historic center and food. The only fact history she kept repeating was about a cigarette factory. The food was ok not great or that different from any basic Mexican food aside from the bugs.overall I didn't think it was great, it was a bit boRing and food wasn't exceptional

Great Food Tour

This tour was one of the best tours I’ve taken in a long time! No time wasted and dumb things, the tour guide was knowledgeable, we did what we were there to do which was to eat! And it was sooo much food loved it! Not too much talking from the tour guide which was great sometimes they are too focused on giving too much history they bore people. And she knew how to gage it! Just the right amount of info. I took a tour after this one and that guide didn’t know how to gage it too much information sometimes people don’t need all that..

Kyomi was our guide and was lovely! She was very knowledgeable and professional while still being very fun. We got to try a lot of food while getting our introduction to Mexico City and some local restaurants that we probably wouldn’t have experienced in our own. Pro tip: consider skipping eating anything the morning before your tour as you will get plenty of food throughout this trip!

That's a great tip, Laura. Thank you so much for joining us and for your lovely comments on the experience, the food and Kiomi. We are so happy you had such a great time!

Kiomi was our tour guide and she was excellent. We ate a lot and learned a lot. She pointed out buildings, talked about the history of the area and told us about the food we were eating. Our tour lasted about 5 hours. We would highly recommend it to others

Awesome Food Tour

A wonderful afternoon strolling through the historic Mexico City with Grace. Grace provided so much information and told legends of the area while taking us to amazing restaurants and food carts. We couldn’t pick a favorite place or food, everything was incredible! Grace even laughed off my husband’s accidental blinding attempt with lime juice. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Mexico City.

My Mexico City food tour was amazing my tour guide gave me lots of information about all the food that we're getting from all over different parts of Mexico and how that it related to their culture and the ingredients and she knew her stuff. You get a lot of tastings and samples. I would recommend this tour to a friend and I my go to some of their other tours.

Very fun tour that combines history and copious amounts of food! I finally got to try some of the more exotic foods that Mexico City has to offer. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a good opportunity as well to meet some new people especially as a solo traveller.

It was a great trip around the culinary world of Mexico. Food was great, and plenty of it as well as I am a rather large person and I was full and not able to eat dinner that evening. The history along the way was great, the places were unique and old school and beautiful, it was a very nice tour and very recommended. I don’t like a lot of organized tours, would do this one again.

We sure would love to have you again, Darren! Thank you so much for joining us, we are very happy with the great time you had.

Kiomi and Ana ROCK!
Nick_R
, Dec 2021
Great experience overall! I had some difficulty in finding the initial meeting spot. Besides that, this was awesome!! My guide KIOMI and her trainee Ana were amazing!! They went above and beyond giving an amazing tour (which was as much about history and culture, as it was about food). They were so good and patient in explaining and highlighting the Mexico's City's best. They even ensured that I got to my hotel okay on the public transit system. KIOMI and Ana (and the rest of my fellow tourist cohort) really made this an awesome experience! I highly recommend it (oh yeah, by the way, the food and drinks were amazing also:)
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Wow, that was so good to read. Thank you so much for your great comments on both the experience and your time with Kiomi and Ana, and of course, the food! We are so glad you had such an amazing time. We hope to have you back on some other time. Thank you, Nick!
