This food tour was awesome! The car came on time, Rodrigo was great and the food even better! It was the perfect late morning activity and a great way to get a little taste of authentic Mexico. And the art tour along the way was a nice touch. The only thing I'd suggest is to...come hungry!

Would definitely recommend! All the food was absolutely delicious and there were plenty of stops. I am vegetarian and they provided an alternative for me at every place as well. The guide, Claudia, was wonderful, explaining everything in detail so we could also learn a little about the cooking techniques and the history of Mexican cuisine.

Angel was my guide. It was a great tour. I got to try food and drinks that I have never tried before- even with my multiple trips to different parts of Mexico. Everything I had on the tour was delicious. I don’t eat pork or beef and Angel was able to tailor the tour to my food restrictions.
