Traveller Tips

It may seem a bit pricey but as first time visitors to Polanco it was worth it to taste the different foods, learn about the making and origins of the foods and to get a mini tour of the locale.
I highly recommend this tour, and request him as a guide if you can.

Biry was the BEST guide and we loved this tour! Of our 4 days in Mexico City, this was one of our favorite experiences. It was 7 stops (5 savory, 2 sweet), and 4 of the savory spots were legitimate restaurants with tables set, aguas frescas brought out, etc. We ate so much!
Perfect Polanco Tour hosted by Viryanna!
Tom_S, Sept 2023
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!
Bravo Victor
Kirby_S, Sept 2023
Our tour guide Victor was very knowledgeable about this he cooking, Mexican history and the area. He was the best pet of the tour. The taco stands were the most authentic but the mole at El Bajio was the best thing we ate.
Biri was a fabulous guide!
Juliermason, Sept 2023
This is an amazing tour, both to see the elegant Polanco area and to try numerals Mexican specialties. Biri was an exceptional guide (and I have been on many food tours around the world do I don’t say that lightly). She went out of her way to accommodate us There were two other people on our tour who only spoke Spanish, and Biri did an excellent job of explaining everything in both languages, seamlessly. I would highly recommend this food tour to anyone looking for a top notch Mexican food tour!
Our tour guide was great...
Nick_B, Sept 2023

Victor_J, Aug 2023
Enjoyed our tour with Victor. His background as a chef provided great insight into the various food we tried. Being from the US, I’m used to Sonoran and Tex-Mex style food. I liked learning more about the differences in flavors. While not a fan of mole, I did try the black mole - which was way sweeter than any mole I’ve ever had. I recommend Victor because his culinary background added so much to the experience.
Awesome tour, definitely need to do
Amanda_L, Aug 2023
Met with Victor, our guide, at designated meeting spot which he confirmed approx 1 hour prior to tour by text. My husband and I were the only people on the tour and it started promptly. We visited 5 restaurants for savory eats and 2 for sweet samples at the end. Cannot say enough about what a wonderful tour guide he was, extremely personable and very knowledgable about the history of Mexico and the food we ate. The time flew by and gave us lots of places we could revisit. Definitely a "must " tour to do, if possible a great tour guide to request.
Good food, excellent guide
RickyBobby, Aug 2023
It was a very nice food tour. What I appreciated the most was the patience of the tour guide because we were not able to make it the first night and she was kind to switch the day.
Fun and tasty
Elizabeth_B, July 2023
We had a great time. Viry was a fun and knowledgeable guide. My recommendation: don't eat lunch beforehand, you'll want room for all the goodies you are going to try!!
Good experience
Sharon_L, July 2023
Great combination of dishes to try in a nice neighborhood. Victor, having a culinary background, was a great guide. He made sure diet restrictions within the group were accommodated.
Best tour!
Michael_D, July 2023
This was the best tour!!! We were the only ones on the tour, so it was basically a private tour. Polanco is so beautiful and the food samples were all incredible. Bidi was an amazing guide and explained the history and back story of the food so well. I would highly recommend this tour.
Had a fantastic time
Kurt_H, July 2023

Delicious and fun!
Kelly_W, June 2023
Viry was a wonderful guide and we loved this tour! I recommend it to anyone wanting to explore different foods in CDMX (who doesn't?) Definitely come hungry to this!
Delicious choices in Polanco ❤️
Judy_M, June 2023
All of the restaurants visited were outstanding. Viry was an amazing guide and was so much fun to hang out with. The food was delicious and very filling. Loved every minute and went back to Catamundi. Loved it all.
A Must for Your Mexico City Visit
Alice_K, June 2023
So good!! Highly recommend. Excellent food choices. Highly knowledgeable guide. I would do the same one again it was that good.
10/10 would recommend
Kate_M, June 2023
We had one of those travel experiences from hell in the morning and we were super late for the tour but we quickly forgot about it because Viry is amazing. She tried to squeeze so much in the limited time we had. She truly turned our day around. She is such a happy, energetic, kind and knowledgeable person. Thank you thank you thank you!! I’m also still thinking about the tacos and tuna we had so yummy :)
Best way to spend 3 hours in CDMX
JAMIE_M, June 2023
We had the best time on this food tour with Viry. She was very informative and friendly. We enjoyed each of our stops on the tour and really felt like we experienced a lot. All of us left feeling happy and all agreed that Viry is the best!
Polanco food tour
Dan_C, June 2023
Awesome food tour. Víri was a wonderful guide. She made our food tour of Polanco very memorable. My wife and I will definitely do this tour with her again when we return to Mexico City 🇲🇽🥇💯
Delicious food and very informative
Paul_C, June 2023
Experiencing a wide range of food which informed us for the rest of our trip - our tour guide, Viry, was a wealth of knowledge, both on food and culture in Mexico City
Impressed and Full
Catherine_S, May 2023
Viry was amazing! We walked around the neighborhood and she felt like a friend giving us information and recommendations. Also, the food was amazing! My mother and I are Mexican American and have experienced my grandmother’s cooking but this was the best rich mole I’ve ever had. Amazing tamales and some street tacos. 10/10 recommend. It wound up just being us 2 on a private tour and we had a blast
