From the start to finish I had a great time! Both Paulina and Jimena were such sweet great guides, and they made everyone feel relaxed and at ease the whole time. Every spot they took us to was great, and they were very informative, and ready to answer any questions! This was the best tour I had in Mexico City thus far!🥰🤗💐

Enjoyed touring CDMX with Kyomi and Grace, learning about the history and food culture. The food was great and varied from the market (and the more exotic) to a traditional cantina. Highly recommend! (Don’t eat a big breakfast beforehand!!)
Authentic food and local customs experience
Hasnain_M, May 2023
Kiomi was an excellent guide. She was well informed and explained food customs and history very well. Her choice of food for each persons needs was thoughtful. The refreshments at the cantina were welcomed by all!
A different perspective of the city
SIMON_P, May 2023
A great way to see an alternative side of the city. A great choice of different cuisine as well as locations meaning the experience embraces restaurant, cantina, street stall, market and higher end eatery. Kiomi was a great guide paying real attention to any dietary needs the group may have. Be prepared to be adventurous to get the most out of it.
Excellent food tour

Jimana was an excellent guide! She was knowledgable and passionate about Mexico and it’s food culture and tastes while also sharing stories about the city and its buildings and history as we walked around. She made the tour fun and fascinating for us. My partner and I were visiting from London for just a few days and we found the tour a great way to get our bearings on day one and to get experience the sights and tastes of Mexico. We enjoyed a wide variety flavours, including some exotic options in there San Juan Market, with generous portions and a well-organised flow between venues. Thank you, Jimena!

Paulo_C, Mar 2023
Wonderful food tour with a sprinkle of historic and architectural highlights. Every stop was unique and the bites were great throughout. Our guide was fantastic! Will definitely go back to some spots! Come with an empty stomach and comfortable shoes. A few adventurous tastings, so have an open mind.

Wonderful Afternoon Walking Food Tour
ChristineEddings, Mar 2023
Exploring the city with our tour guide, Jimena, was an absolute joy and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Mexico City. The tour is very well laid out and planned in a very reasonable and efficient manner. We got to see some very interesting parts of the city, learned about the history and culture, and learned things in between food destinations. The tour gave us the opportunity to challenge our normal food choices, but was not pushy about it. The destinations also varied in style and cuisine, and Jimena provided wonderful information about the proprietors, locations and areas. The walking distance and pace was reasonable and manageable. The most we walked on any one part of the trip was approx. 25 minutes. Highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys integrating into the city for an afternoon, and enjoys great food with great people.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi, We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and we are happy that you enjoyed the tour with Jimena. See you soon!
