  • Being the only two on this tour we enjoyed how personal it felt when Francisco explained everything about Mexico and Playa del Carmen. My fiance and I thought that he did a great job selecting the different places we ate at. Keep in mind I highly suggest you don't eat anything before you come to this tour cause you would get super full. Different things we had on this tour: al pastor taco, fresh juice drinks, barbacoa beef tacos and beef soup, ice cream, tamales, seafood dinner and chocolate anything. Highly recommend this tour!! Francisco can you do a taco only tour. I would definitely pay you a visit

  • If you are a foodie, this tour is for you. You are guided through the city by Francisco stopping at great spots to eat. You can tell Francisco is knowledgeable and has hand picked these places to give you a little taste of everything. He is also willing to share tips to make your trip in playa better. As you walk, he gives you his knowledge of the city that you will not get anywhere else . Do this trip on your first day, so you can go back and enjoy the little gems on your own. I think we stopped at about seven places, so it was well worth the money. I loved the fresh juice and El Fagon pastor tacos the most!!

  • The best tour ever for any body visiting Playa del Carmen. Francisco knows his history, food and people. If you like food fun and a good time book this tour you will not be sorry. Bring comfortable shoes, they are a must for all the walking you will do. He takes you for tacos and tamales, ceviches, ice cream, chocolate, and much more. Very friendly, funny, warm and knowable of Mexico.What an expericence would recommend to all. Francisco you are the best will tell all about you wonderful tour. Thank you.

  • This tour was one of the most memorable experiences of our recent trip to Playa del Carmen. Our tour guide Francisco was so knowledgeable of the area's history and culture. He took us to local food venues that we would not have otherwise visited...and the food was authentic and wonderful. We would highly recommend this tour.

  • I was the only sign up for the tour on the day i went which is good and bad. The good is you get a great tour to yourself. The guide is wonderful in describing the foods along with the history and culture of the area. Come hungry as you get a lot of food from pork and beef tacos to seafood to ice cream to chocolate milk. I learned so much on this tour of the local area. The bad is i was hoping for some interaction with fellow travelers to share the experience with.

  • This was AMAZING! We had such a great time. My daughters age 13 and 11 had a wonderful experience. We tasted lots of different foods and learned so much about the various food choices in Playa del Carmen. We always believe that you learn more about a culture through their food than anything else. We had various tacos at different restaurants and stands, ice cream, juices, ceviche, tamales and the most amazing chocolate. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone or family that enjoys seeing the non-tourist aspect of a new city. Cheers!

  • Francisco was a wonderful tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area, giving you a brief history lesson about the Yucatán Peninsula. He also educates you on how the roads work so you can find your way around. He took us to about 9 different places, tells you about the menus and gives recommendations. We were stuffed by the end! The whole tour was about 3.5-4 hours. You gain much more from this tour than just getting to eat local food. He can answer any of your questions about the area. He actually gives other tours/excursions too. We were bummed that we had already booked one before coming or else we would've definitely gone through him. He provides a more personal experience vs a tour experience in my opinion. So if you are interested in excursions but are hesitant to book online I would definitely recommend taking this food tour and talking to Francisco about booking one through him.

  • Wow! Francisco is a great guide. During our approximately 3 1/2 mile, close to 4-hour walking tour we traveled through several neighborhoods, tasted wonderful food in typical local restaurants, and learned somethings about PDC and how it came to be the Mayan/Mexican/multi-national city it is today. We will return to several of the good food places we visited with Francisco to try some of their other offerings. Don't miss this opportunity to dive into the local food scene. You won't be disappointed!

  • We really enjoyed getting out of the touristy area of Playa del Carmen. As others mentioned, it's best to do this tour when you arrive if possible. Our guide was very friendly and we never felt rushed by him. Francisco was very accommodating and answered all our questions. He gave us a history of PDC and about the food culture. We found some really great street food and the best ceviche. We paced ourselves with the eating, but still became too full. However, we were totally up for dessert near the end. I was very happy to find some truly local food and to venture beyond 5th Avenida.

  • This tour was great. Francisco was knowledgeable, kind, and an all around great tour guide. He took us to several places we would have never thought to stop and eat while giving us a brief cultur and history lesson. If I could, I would take this tour earlier in my trip so I could eat the food again!
