    So nice to see the local market and try food that we never would have found out about ourselves. Also great to learn more about the local culture and history.

    Food tour in Abastos
    Frank_N, Sept 2023
    Definitely with it. The Abastos market is overwhelming and having a local guide to know where to go is essential. I highly recommend this tour.
    Must do!!
    Edgar_L, Sept 2023
    If you are looking to get to know a real mercado this tour is for you! It's by far not comercialized and is a gem! The food is fantastic and there is tons of things to purchase from food, alcohol aguas and more! Be prepared to walk a lot. Daniel was the best in explaining everything and made sure we received the best experience. He has an amazing relationship with the vendors so you are going to be immersed in an amazing tour of the mercado. 10/10
    Great food tour

    A True Cultural Experience
    Katarina_P, Aug 2023
    The tour was great. We went to the local market in Oaxaca, where alone I would’ve felt very intimidated. Our guide Daniel made the experience fun and informative, and he was very friendly and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of the market. It was a great insight into local culture. Bonus - we ate so much food, we were totally stuffed!
    Michael_D, Aug 2023
    Amazing food tour. Culturally immersive also as the Abastos market is the authentic Oaxaca! Daniel is bar none the best food tour guide I’ve ever had and I’ve been on A Lot of food tours. Run, don’t walk, to immerse yourself in the food and culture of this experience.
    A market guide is a must!
    Andrea_C, July 2023
    I highly recommend this tour - our guide was knowledgeable, patient (we had two young kids with us) and really knew the ins and outs of the market. I would not have had near the experience had we tried to approach this enormous market on our own. He knew exactly where the best vendors were and explained how to order and cook our own food. 10/10 experience!
    Incredible tour in Mercado Abastos!
    Renaud_H, July 2023
    Our tour with Daniel was really great. We loved that it was at the mercando Abastos, which gave us a real insight in the daily life of the Oaxaqueños. The tour is very complete, very well researched. You taste so many different things and have great explanations. We could also very much feel the intent of supporting the locals and their wonderful products. Great experience!
    We had a great experience...
    Olga_M, July 2023
    We had a great experience with Daniel at the market. We learned a lot about local cuisine and history and tried some unique foods and drinks. Daniel also gave great suggestions on where to eat in town. Great tour, highly recommend.
    Experience new flavors!
    Quinn_A, July 2023
    I loved trying new flavors, textures and smells. This was a very educational adventure for me. I highly recommend this trip.
    Highly recommended

    What a great experience with Daniel! We enjoyed walking through the markets and the experience would not have been the same without him. I also did a mezcal and chocolate tasting afterwards under a separate booking, same company.
    Excellent Tour

    Our guide Danielle was really good. He combined history and food and made the whole experience extremely interesting.
    Highlight of Oaxaca
    Alanna_W, May 2023
    Highlight of my trip so far! Very knowledgable guide and lots of good food. We learned about local delicacies and had an opportunity to taste many different plants as well as make our own tacos. Well worth it!
    Incredible. Highly recommend.
    Maggie_D, Apr 2023
    I wish I could give more than 5 stars! This tour was the highlight of my trip in Oaxaca. I’m a chef and it was really important to me that I spent time tasting a variety of the ingredients and cuisine of Oaxaca and I’m so grateful I took this tour because I learned SO much! Daniel was incredibly knowledgeable and is very passionate about teaching. I loved how interactive the day was. We didn’t just walk past the vendors and taste pre-made things. We had a small group which was great. We talked to the people, watched them prepare the dishes and even did some cooking ourselves! Daniel is respected at the market by the local vendors which makes it really neat to try a little bit of everything and feel warmly welcomed into the community. I felt comfortable asking questions to him and the people selling their products. When I saw something I didn’t know or never tried, Daniel would pick up a couple for us to taste. He made recommendations also on where to dine throughout the rest of my trip. I truly cannot say enough good things about this experience and I highly, highly recommend!!! Thank you so much Daniel and Etnofood. The tour was so great I even decided to book the chocolate class with Etnofood for the following day. As a chef- thank you for providing such an informative and memorable experience.
    Great experience with a guide who knew lots of vendors at the huge local Mercado
    murray_m, Apr 2023
    David was a great guide - he knew lots of vendors at market since he buys for his organic cafe. I felt like Anthony Bourdain snacking and chatting my way through the market and sampling herbs and spices along the way. Highly recommend
    So many unique foods
    Sara_V, Mar 2023
    We loved our experience with Daniel! We tried so many things that we never would have thought to try — so many that we had never even heard of. We were also recommended spots around town to eat and go out that we ended up loving as well. Would definitely recommend this tour with friends or a partner.
    A must see experience
    Annette_B, Feb 2023
    Such a privilege to see the market on a small group with our exceptional guide Daniel . It was very authentic and an absolute feast for the belly ….. and the eyes. Refreshingly few gringos in sight. Allow for four hours at a steady pace. The market is enormous but Daniel guided us to the best zones. Would definitely recommend this tour for a genuine insight into Oaxaca’s best market. Bring your best walking shoes and prepare to sample many delicious offerings.
    Great authentic experience
    Sanni_T, Feb 2023
    Our guide was very kind and passionate about food and the city. It was a pleasure to join and both worth the money and time.
