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

It was an amazing trip! Great guide, made good friends, the food was amazing, the captain of our boat was very insightful. Totally worth it. Reserve your whole day for this trip. Don't make any other plans.

We loved this! A safe and fun way to learn about cooking Mexican food. Hector was amazing!
