Very enjoyable experience with Alex, sampling local dishes and exploring the local market. Long wait for the food at the first stop put us behind schedule so felt a little rushed in the market. Would have appreciated stopping at various food vendors for explanations on how their ingredients are used and additional information on Mexican food culture (e.g. history, seasonal dishes, breakfast/lunch/dinner dishes). Also feel the price is a bit high, especially considering the low cost of the actual dishes. Overall, recommend the tour but some improvements are possible :)

We had an amazing time with Alex! He showed us places we would have never found without him. His enthusiasm for the Mexican food was catching and inspiring. We ate the best tacos and tortillas ever!!! Really glad we had this experience! We definitely recommend the tour to everyone! Stefan and Ines

Since only the two of us were registered, we got a private tour. Iveth was a great guide, told us a lot about the city, culture and food. We tried and ate a lot and it was all in all a great experience!

Alex was a fantastic guide. Loved the tour, and his knowledge of the culture and cuisine was superb. He took us to places we would never have gone otherwise. Highly Recommend!

It was just really hot. Overall a good experience.
