Roberto was so fun and so energetic we really enjoyed our tour with him. He accommodated our tastes and accessibility (stroller). His background in archeology was an asset in our experience as well. Thanks Roberto!

Discover Mexico City’s Street Food with Local Host

We had a fantastic experience with our local host, Micheal. We explored neighborhoods, local foods, markets and experienced the vibrancy of Mexico City with someone intimate with its art and culture. We booked the tour on our first full day and benefited from Micheal’s knowledge, advice, tips and recommendations on how to navigate the many local food options. Micheal was a delightful host, listened to our expectations and improved upon them. At the end of the tour, we felt that we had spent the day with an old friend. Thank you, Micheal, for introducing Mexico City, its treasures and making its wonderful cuisine so accessible! I would highly recommend this tour for those interested in experiencing the authentic flavors of Mexican cuisine safely and economically.

We enjoyed this street food experience!

We had a street food tour in Mexico City and our guide was an amazing ex-pat that shared his long history and experiences in CDMX, both for food and other historcial sites. We felt very lucky to spend a few hours with Michael and enjoyed the city unscripted experience!
