  • Our guide was the best we experienced in Mexico City. Well versed, great communicator and friendly. The subject of the tour also turned out to be quite interesting. ONe significant problem: the agency combined two groups, and one group had to end the tour early so they could participate in another tour. That meant we were hurried through the markets, with no time to savor the sounds, smells and sights. So the tour ended up being an hour shorter than advertised. Our guide made p for it as best he could at the end by lingering over a relaxed lunch with us. He easily turned a three-star review into a four-star.

  • Caesar was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and had a great balance of info and exposure to dif foods /cultural aspects of markets.

  • Great tour of markets and art. Wonderful guide showed us things and places you would never see on your own. Tasted many kinds of local food. All in all, a great day. Definitely recommend!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The majority of markets were clearly off the usual tourist agenda, and our guide was attentive, informative and engaging. 10/10, it was my favorite tour I've ever taken - I would absolutely recommend it!

  • It's pretty good!! I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide took us hang around and explain so much for us. We ate a lot, went to the local markets, took the local transportation, which is an good experience to know more about the real life of local people and their history. And it's a small group, so we can enjoy more. And i have to say my tour guide is amazing! That was his first time to lead a group, but he did a good job. He's very responsible and nice!!

  • 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.
