  • One word - AMAZING!!! This tour is for the person that is interested in the culture as well as the food. The guide takes you through behind of what you see on your plate. In our opinion this guide should do this full time!! Even my wife, who is Hispanic, learned the history of Mayan food.

    Thank you for a wonderful time.

  • Francisco is the best. He gives you great history about the food and its origins, and the food itself is amazing. Plenty of walking, but you get so much food. If you are a foodie this is for you. Thanks again Francisco!!

  • This is an awesome food tour and takes you away from the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue to some tasty places you might otherwise just walk past. We were the only ones on our tour so it was very much a private tour but in no way was it awkward. Francisco is very knowledgable and passionate about the places we visited and Mexico itself. My favourite was the store we bought beautiful agua fresca at and El Fogon unreal tacos. My partner loved Taqueria Dos Hermanos even if we had to wait a little while for it to open. A must do for anyone who likes to eat. Wear comfy shoes though - you will walk quite far and come with an empty tummy!

  • This was a fun way to experience the authentic Mexican fare. Our guide was adorable and the tour way well thought out.
    The food was awesome!!! Glad we did it.

  • This is a must take tour. Francisco was everything that was expected and more. When we started the tour he said that he wanted to feel more like our friend than a tour guide and I felt that he delivered this experience. We not only learned about some of the more off beat places to visit in Playa del Carmen, but learned about its short history as well. We had a group of 7 people and everyone of us were very satisfied. It was my wife's birthday and Francisco made sure to include that into the tour as well with some special things planned for her along the way. This listing is billed as 3 hours but you will find that Francisco will continue on way past that. We started at 6:00 PM and were getting back into the taxi to our resort at 11:00 PM. Never a dull moment.

  • Amazing food, really enjoyed this walking tour! Francisco is a wonderful host, so warm, accommodating, and knowledgeable. I was pleasantly surprised when he brought out an archaeology magazine and showed us a map of Mexico. He pointed out the various regions of Mexico, talked about the Yucatan peninsula, the Mayan people, the history of Playa del Carmen, and much more.

    I had felt sick earlier in the week, and wondered if going on this food tour was a good idea. But, we ate at all sorts of places some that I would have been hesitant to try on my own, and my husband and I felt totally fine. I especially enjoyed sampling the chorizo tacos at El Fogon, icecream from Michoacan, and fresh juice from a local fruit vendor. The juice flavors / combos were fantastic! I had beet and orange, and my husband had watermelon.

    Highly recommend this tour!

  • Alma, our tour guide, was a delightful, engaging, and knowledgeable. Our food started with chicken tamales wrapped in banana leaves which was light and almost fluffy. We had a hibiscus drink and traditional corn dish--brushed with mayo, sprinkled with cheese, and dabbled with chili sauce. The finale was a crisp dessert crepe filled with nutella and gouda cheese--actually a wonderful not too sweet yet creamy sweet. Along the way, Alma also told us the story of Playa Del Carmen, its people, and its traditions. All together it was a pleasure.

  • We had a delicious and informative evening with Francisco. We stopped and sampled at 7 different places. This included very authentic taco experience at El Fagon, freshly made juices so many kinds to choose from, tamale tasting, ice cream, amazing seafood, a marquesita at a street stand, and real hot chocolate my husband opted for a cold fruit drink. We were totally stuffed by the end, with big smiles on our faces. Francisco explained menus to us, told us about the various foods, and we learned a little about the history of the area. Be sure to be hungry, wear comfortable walking shoes, and ready for a really great evening. Francisco was so patient and wanted to share so much with us that the evening lasted almost 5 hours. He went above and beyond. This tour is highly recommended.

  • Such a great tour. Francisco was a genuine guide - so knowledgable . The tour takes you away from 5th Avenue and you get a great variety of food in a small group. Excellent value

  • Was one on one with Francisco for this tour. We met at city hall and proceeded. During the 3 hours, we dined on tacos, ceviche, and ice cream while drinking freshly squeezed juices. Francisco offered insight on the foods, work done by the locals. You will eat at places off the tourist trail. A husband and wife cook during the day then open at 7pm to serve delicious soups and tacos. Another man has a shop with fresh juices from orange, to beet, to grapefruit. The ceviche at Bozas was dynamite. We ended our stroll at Ah Cacao near 5th Avenue. A refreshing chocolate shake tackled the stifling humidity. Sooo good. Two of the places where we enjoyed their fare were later visited by me: El Fogon and Michoacán ice cream. El Fogon is a locally-operated restaurant serving authentic Mexican food. There are 4 locations throughout PDC. One of the locations is on Constituyentes.The food portions are generous and are priced quite reasonably. Michoacán ice cream is located in the :Mega mall on the same street. Take this tour on your first day in PDC. You will be positively influenced on where to dine, refresh yourself while on your vacation. Highly recommended.
