  • Really enjoyable tour - we definitely ate a lot! And the guides were very knowledgeable, especially if you approached them with questions. However, we didn't get much information about the witchcraft market because our guides were too busy trying to make sure they didn't lose any of us important of course! but I would have liked to know more!.

  • This is a great experience for anybody who has chosen this trip. I highly reccomend this tour as it is the only way that you will experience and see as to how the local people live and behave. The tour guy that we had namely Rodrigo is a very knowledgeable person explaining all the city's history as well informing you of the day to day life of a mexicoan person. You will get to see the various markets and taste the local food. Dont's miss it and you will not reget it.

  • The tour was great and Evelyn is na amazing guide takinf us through the markets and explaining a lot about the food and sites.

  • OK tour but not a food tour in comparison with other food tours I have been on in other countries.
    Interesting places visited , some of which would have been difficult to find without local knowledge.
    Jose was a good guide , friendly and an interesting person.

  • The Food and Market Tour was great. dont't eat before you go. We ate all day. Ebelyn was fantastic. She

  • Tour was OK. There was not much food provided for a food tour. The majority of the time was spent visiting markets. The GUIDE was GREAT though, she did a GREAT job explaining the sites, surroundings, and way of life in Mexico City.

  • Evelyn was an amazing, informative and warm host. We saw so much of the culture and local market behavior. Food was varied and tasty. Highly recommend this host and toys. Thank you

  • This was an absolutely wonderful tour! When visiting another country, what better way to see how the people live their lives than to visit their markets, and this tour was perfect in that regard. There were 4 or 5 markets visited at a leisurely pace, to include the Rodriguez market and it's interesting sociological history and murals. The sprawling Mercado de la Merced with emphasis on the magic section. And also the flower market, which imo is spectacular, one of the best I have seen anywhere.
    And the tour was so much more than the markets. Our guide, Rodrigo, had so much to relate about Mexico City: it's history and what lies underneath and why the streets are so undulating , superstitions, cultural struggles, ethnicities, the food of course, and even an introduction to riding the bus and subway system. There were also 3 or 4 stops along the way to sample the fare at market fast food venues all delicious I wish I had not eaten breakfast!. Thanks Rodrigo, for making this one of the best tours I have experienced anywhere, and at 39, an absolute steal!

  • Have so much fun with this tour! Our tour guide Nathan I very professional and knowledgeable! guide us to the market safely and fully stuffed!

  • This tour was amazing!
