Highly recommend the experience
, Nov 2021
Joshua was very knowledgeable about the area and the foods. He was very friendly and ready to answer all our questions. The food was excellent. I am vegetarian and had no problems getting food. And it was great to eat in non touristy places.
Great First Day Experience

Indi was the best guide ever! He brought cool hibiscus tea to keep us hydrated at the beginning of the tour. He was super informative and nice. The tour was way more than I expected and was totally worth it! Indi made it super easy at each spot.
Do it!! You won’t regret it

Great time. Thank you!

Enrique is the best. He took us all over PDC and got us so many delicious tacos! Highly recommend this tour.
Eating with Carmen Food Tour with Alex - a 5 Star Experience
, Oct 2021
Our group of six adults (ages 50 up) were in Playa del Carmen for a family wedding, staying at an all-inclusive resort. I asked if they would want to do this food tour with me and they all quickly said yes. It was their first food tour (I do one almost everywhere I go). Two other couples were also on this food tour. Positive reviews from all - the food tastings were great, it was a nice pace, the murals were a bonus. One of our group had fallen a few days before the trip and was using a walker to help with mobility - Alex, our terrific guide, slowed the pace to accommodate her, but we still saw and tasted everything. Alex provided lots of good information about and visits to areas of Playa del Carmen that would not have been available to us if we had not taken this tour. I recommend the tour and Alex to all visitors to the area.
I’m I did this tour!

Our guide Coco was very friendly. I enjoyed all the local stops he made. We get to try different types of foods that I wouldn’t normally find myself. I definitely recommend this tour for everyone!
Great guide and food!

We had a great time despite it feeling like it was 150 degrees. Indra was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide with great sense of humor. All the food and drinks were authentic and tasty. They give you plenty!!
Get to know Playa del Carmen via its food
, Jul 2021
The tour was extremely fun and informative. Coco was personable and very informative. The information and history he gave provided the soul to Playa del Carmen via its food, arts and people. I would recommend start your vacation with this tour to get a nice intro to PDC. We were SO stuffed after the tour, definitely come hungry.
