Perfect Polanco Tour hosted by Viryanna!
Viryanna was a wonderful guide! Her knowledge of Polanco , the local history of the sights along the walk, the background of the restaurants and tacquerias we visited and the owners, and her own background as chef all added to the actual tastings. And the ease with which every waiter and manager greeted her made the tour feel personal and special. We had been recommended the Polanco Tour by friends, and we will certainly recommend the tour and Viryanna to our many foodie friends!

When to Get There

Many businesses and shops close between 2pm and 4pm, and traffic can be heavy around that time. Mexico City’s peak tourist season typically runs from November to May, so it may be more difficult to get a table at Polanco’s popular restaurants then.
