Perfect food tour!
We had an amazing experience with Rodrigo. The food was incredible, the history was interesting and the tour was beautiful.
We learned so much about the history of the city, the country and the food.
We would recommend this to anyone. They even give recommendations of other restaurants to try, although we’ll likely go back to some of these for more!!

Kiomi was excellent
Sep 2021 • Friends
Kiomi was an excellent guide. She is trained in culinary and was able to answer any questions we had along the excellent food tour. I mentioned that I am interested in architecture so she also took time to point out important buildings along the way. The food was a nice mix of interesting and excellent. My entire group was pleasantly surprised and I highly recommend her.

Most efficient way to spend time in CDMX
Sep 2021 • Solo
This is the best way to get a crash course in Mexico City cuisine. I did the Spanish tour with Majo who did an incredible job supplementing knowledge about each dish with Mexico City history as we walked between locations. Each item of food was divine, the torta was my favorite, but the best 5 hours I spent in my time in the city
