What To Expect

Make your way to a central location in Mexico City, close to metro lines, trolley, and bus stations, and meet your food-loving local guide.

You’ll get an insider perspective on Mexico City cuisine as you make your way to a series of evening eateries, but start by kicking off the night at the first mezcal bar in Mexico City. The bar’s resident mezcal master will walk you through the tastes of traditional mezcal, exploring sweet, smoky, floral, and herbal flavors of the pre-Hispanic drink.

When you’re ready for tacos, try what might be Mexico City’s best al pastor variety, using spit-roasted meat that adapts Middle Eastern techniques to local ingredients and flavors.

At the next taqueria, get a contemporary, creative take on tacos, then visit a third taqueria for tacos hot from the griddle. The last taqueria stop of the evening is for Norteño-style tacos, with culinary influences from the regions of northern Mexico.

Your evening of mezcal and tacos concludes at the final taqueria, in the bustling Cuauhtemoc neighborhood.

Fun evening of tacos and friends
Nigar_L, May 2023
Both guys the guide and the driver were very nice and informative! He took us to the taco spots that were popular and had history. Also Queso our guide was informative and willing to answer any questions we had. And at the end we took a picture with the taco champion belt which was fun🤗

Great Tacos and Mezcal!
Shari_C, Mar 2023
We had a great and very delicious evening with Cheese on the Taco and Mezcal tour in Mexico City. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable and the tacos were just amazing. Cheese took us to places I never would have knonw to visit on my own. I even enjoyed the Mezcal tasting! Cheese knew all about the neighborhoods, the taquerias and a lot about Mezcal. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!!
Response from Host, Apr 2023

Rob_Q, Mar 2023
Fun trip. Took our 2 and 6 yo grands along with their parents and a friend, age 73. Our guide was fantastic with everyone, but particularly with the kids. her background on the taquerias and their differences and history was fascinating, food was terrific and interesting. All in all well worth it.

Great way to start our visit to Mexico City that was fun and not too taxing.
Anonymous, Feb 2023
This was a fun way to start our vacation in Mexico City. Our tour guide was excellent. Sorry, we don't remember her name, but she is very knowledgeable with a great personality. Blame the Mezcal. The variety of taco experiences was an excellent introduction to Mexican food and the various styles. All were great, and the chefs at each clearly took pride in their products.
Amazing time!
Ozair_B, Feb 2023
Rosa was our guide and she was super fun and super informative about the food, culture and history! Taco selection was on point - some of the most delicious tacos we’ve ever had. The mezcal tasting was yummy too! Finger licking good! Highly recommend this tour!
A great option for a fun night
Jennifer_P, Jan 2023
Queso was a great guide and kept the mood lively and energy high. Due to traffic we were very late to a few of our spots but he kept things moving and we never felt rushed.
Great Taco Tour
Erika_G, Jan 2023
Loved this tour! We took this tour with Queso and he was very knowledgeable and passionate about Tacos which made the experience even better. The places we visited were soooo good. I would have not found those places if it weren't for this tour. I did not realize we were going to be driven around too, I thought we were going to walk it. So that was a nice surprise.
Friendly and Fun
Locsi_F, Jan 2023
Joseph was friendly and fun, he took our small group around CDMX for the best tacos and a mezcal tasting. I was not a mezcal drinker before this experience and now I appreciate it so much more!!
Highlight of our trip
Josh_M, Jan 2023
Had a great time! This was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip and would recommend it to anyone looking to experience Mexico in the best way... By eating Tacos.
Don't miss this!!!
Richard_P, Jan 2023
This was a fabulous evening. Rosa, our guide, grew up in the area, and is absolutely an expert on the local food and mezcal scene. She delighted in telling stories of the history of the areas we visited and the establishments. We went to one restaurant that had been in business for over 80 yrs and two that had been open for over 60 yrs. If you're thinking "tacos are tacos", join Rosa for a tour. Ever spot was unique in the style of food. And everything was wondeful. Our guide new the food. She knew the neighborhoods. She knew the vendors. She got us outside of the tourist area, to where the locals go, and it was an absolute blast. She delighted in sharing stories and backgrounds on all we were seeing and eating. And... We loved meeting new friends, traveling from all over the world. Sharing our own backgrounds, discovering together.... made it all the better.
Best tacos and mezcal
Julie_G, Dec 2022
The tacos and mezcal were so delicious. I enjoyed each stop on this tour. Our guide Queso was friendly and even hung out with our group after the tour ended. I would definitely book again.
Warm Welcome to CDMX
Nick_F, Nov 2022
I was with Federico and Rosa, and both did an excellent job of showing me around and making me feel comfortable in a new city. I was the only one on the tour that night, but it didn’t make the experience any less memorable. ¡Muchas gracias!

Our guide „Queso“ was on time, funny, knowledgeable and most importantly passionate! We loved this tour, the tacos and mezcal.
Tacos and Mezcal extravaganza
Wendell_L, Sep 2022
The tacos were fantastic at the local taquerias. Fred was a wonderful tour guide. He’s definitely a taco aficionado. The Mezcal tasting was quite an educational experience. Definitely worth the food and drink adventure.
Best part of my vacation!
Kristin_E, Jul 2022
Frederico aka Queso was an amazing guide. Our group was only 3 people, so we were really able to engage with the food and each other. Come with an empty stomach and leave with a full heart for tacos! I can’t wait to come back and tour with Queso again!
A great sample of Mexico cuisine
Farah_A, May 2022
Frank, my foodie guide, was totally awesome. Knowledgeable, funny and professional. It is obvious, the wealth of love and knowledge he has of his Mexican heritage. I really loved this tour and the company was very accommodating for my special diet. (No pork or dairy) I will totally do this tour again and have booked the half day tour.

Delicious Taco Tour with a Fun and Passionate Guide in Mexico City
Jack_B, Apr 2022
Had a wonderful taco tour of Mexico City with Rodrigo. We did the tour on our first night in town, which was a great idea! We got to explore 3/4 neighborhoods and see some of the city's landmarks, all while enjoying some incredible tacos. We went back to two of the spots later in the trip, and Rodrigo provided a list of additional options in each neighborhood that we also utilized and enjoyed. Rodrigo was fun and passionate, and provided a lot of food knowledge and Mexico city history, and was very eager to make recommendations and discuss the rest of our trip to help us plan better once we understood the neighborhoods of Mexico City more. Would highly recommend, food was incredible and a memorable first night in town. Come on an empty stomach, 8 tacos on the tour and ends with some lights out al pastor tacos that I am still thinking about. Great value, great time and the taco knowledge we acquired guided the rest of our trip. We even skipped some of our higher-end reservations to explore more street tacos and neighborhood spots.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thank you! We're so happy that you had such a nice time with us. And thank you for your feedback, we take everything into consideration. We hope to have you again on some other time!
A Delicious and Informative Experience.
Chris_L, Mar 2022
This is a delicious and informative experience. Fred was the perfect tour guide for our crew. We thoroughly enjoyed unique Tacos from four excellent taqueria that all had a distinguishing quality that Fred explained in detail. The Mexcal tasting was also terrific; we loved the experience so much we bought an extra tasting of the "snake infused" Mexcal. We're not a group that would normally pay for a tour. But all agreed this tour was very valuable; it opened up a part of Mexico City that we would have not likely found on our own.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
We are so glad that this experience was everything you hoped for and more. Thank you so much for your lovely comments and for joining us, Chris! You were great foodies and we sure hope to see you on our other tours, someday!
Fun and Flavorful Tour of Mexico City Taquerias
Jeremy_D, Jan 2022
This was such a fun and engaging tour by Sabores Mexico. My guide, Rodrigo, was a great host and tour guide, telling me the history of the different varieties of tacos as well as providing me restaurant and bar recommendations for the remainder of my trip to CDMX. I would recommend this tour to anyone; you not only get to learn the history behind each regional taco speciality in Mexico, but you get to eat many as tacos as you can! These pair nicely with the mezcal. How can you top that? If you like food, especially if you enjoy learning the history of a country's cuisine, this tour is for you. We went to around 6 different taquerias, trying the house special at each. All the local places we went were very welcoming, with excellent food. Although my personal favorite was la gaonera, there was not a taco I disliked the whole evening. This tour is definitely worth the price! When I return to Mexico City, I would not hesitate to book another tour with Sabores Mexico. Thanks to Rodrigo for sharing his passion for food and his country with me. Hasta la proxima.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
It really feels amazing to know you had such a great time with us, We really appreciate all your comments and we are thrilled by how much you enjoyed the whole experience. Telling the story behind every taco is really important for us, so we are very happy of how much you liked it. Thank you so much Jeremy, we can't wait to have you back!
Discovering Tacos
Sanat_N, Dec 2021
We loved all the taco spots! Grace was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She made it fun for us; we learned a lot about tacos and the different regions of Mexico having different tacos! We had no idea how diverse the cuisine of Mexico is. Grace even went out of the way to fulfill a request we had for a specific type of taco. The tour takes longer than they say it does because the pace depends on you and the traffic is Mexico City can be quite horrible at that time of the evening. Just don't plan anything else after. It is a great evening with plenty of food and drinks. We highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
We absolutely loved reading about the great time you had with Grace. We are very glad it was such an enjoyable experience for you guys and that you loved all the tacos, that's amazing! Thank you so much for joining us and for being such great foodies!!
Secret spots
Anthony_J, Dec 2020
Great time exploring some of the more unknown spots in CDMX. If you are a tourist, I doubt you would find these places on your own! Super authentic family restaurants/hole in the wall spots for great tacos. Mezcal bar was also cool.
Response from Host, Jan 2021
Thank you so much for your great comments, Anthony! We are very happy to learn you had such a great tour and that you enjoyed all the visited spots.
Angela_B, Jul 2019
This tour was fabulous! The tour guide REALLY knows tacos, Mexican eateries, and mezcal! Super knowledgeable and friendly, Kelly and I had the best night. We are recommending this tour to everyone we know in CDMX and the RY community.

Foi uma maneira de conhecer um pouco mais da gastronomia mexicana, entender as diferenças regionais, comer e beber bem, além de ouvir um pouco da história do México. Vale muito a pena!
