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.

Great experience. We toured 4 different taco locations each with an Agua Fresca or beer provided & at the end 1 dessert. The tacos were excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable about each place. He was also able to accommodate those with dietary restrictions. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Cancun.

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!

Luis was excellent as a guide and was generally great to talk to! The taco stops were excellent and the market had great (normal) prices compared to the hotel zone and Isla Mujeres. A bottle I bought on this tour was twice the price elsewhere. Would highly recommend.

Delicious foods you get to try- real Mexican food that you won’t find at your resort. G was great fun and explaining the different foods, the process of them and also got to learn a little history on different murals
