What people are saying about State of Mexico

Viktor was an excellent tour guide (chef by trade) who took us to 7 fantastic spots, many of which were already featured on popular restaurant lists (ie Eater), so we were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant selection! We were staying in Polanco and it was nice to discover new parts of the neighborhood that we would never have known existed if it weren’t for the tour!

It was very informative, friendly and fun tour incorporating history, archeology, city sightseeing the locals do it and food tastings with a small cooking class. The food was delicious. There were so many things packed in these 5 hours so I would highly recommend it. Ana

Gerson was just amazing. The way he shared facts about the pyramids was really funny and interesting. Can really recommend this tour. The food is also nice & going early really pays off!
