Knowledgable and Enthusiastic Mexico City Overview

Roberto was a great guide to introduce us to the layout and history of Mexico City. He was able to point us to all sorts of interesting places we never would have found by wandering on our own. His background in archaeology made him an appreciated authority on cultural and historical context. He has a genuine love for the subject and was great at inspiring interest and appreciation in our group!

TASTE THE BEST STREET FOOD IN MEXICO CITY

We had an outstanding time with Roberto and the street food tour! Roberto is an archeologist and a Mexico City local and he knows his stuff! We talked about history, food customs and traditions and even went to the biggest flower market. We would highly recommend Roberto for any future tours of Mexico City! (Viator, City Unscripted)

I carefully scoured the internet examining several Mexico City food tours. As a James Beard Foundation recognized chef, I wanted a particularly exceptional food tour with my wife and her folks. It was important to me that we try the unique hidden gems, and small family places, that really show the true flavor and character of Mexico. Roberto Vilchis not only surpassed my culinary hopes, but is also an extremely knowledgable guide and super-nice, energetic guy!! There were a few things I was especially interested in trying, and Roberto cheerfully obliged. And, where guidebooks and personal recommendations boasted about the best carnitas in the city, Roberto introduced us to a particular spot that actually serves carnitas tacos with the bone still loosely attached to the meat. That is merely one example of the special places he knows about. We had Roberto hire a driver so we could efficiently navigate the area, transverse the barrios, and cover a variety of places. His chosen driver was a guy names Allen. My suggestion, do the same. And, if possible, request this same exceptional driver, who also speaks pretty good English, knows a great deal, and is also about as friendly as they come! I know that we hardly scratched the surface. I can’t wait to return to Mexico City and have Roberto and Allen resume our culinary adventures!! Buen provecho!!
