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!

The food tour was wonderful!! Gerry took us to some great taco sites and fresh red snapper. A beverage at almost all stops - could add up on your local cervesa count!! Juan Pablo was a great driver - keeping the van close and safe. One of my best tours in Cozumel.

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

Great food in places you would never find without a local guide - come hungry, there is plenty to eat!

Gerry was great and the Soupa de Lima is freakin amazing
