Was deciding between a 3 and a 4 star review. Was educational, but some of the food was only okay. I would recommend if its your first trip to playa. If you want to be educated about Mexican cuisine, this tour may be helpful. Jonas, our tour guide, was entertaining and knowledgeable.

Victor was awesome. He took us to some properly local and authentic spots to eat. There were a couple spots I never would have considered visiting if it wasn’t for the tour. Victor also gladly helped me with some Spanish I had questions about. Highly recommend!

What a great tour. Henry was a fantastic, passionate guide. The local food stands, and small restaurants we visited were amazing. We were so full by the end that we couldn’t finish it all. Highly recommend

A wonderful and delicious experience! Our tour guide was excellent. I loved the fact that she was local and knew the area the way only a local can. Wonderful benefit for us, her English was really good. She took us to street food carts and restaurants we would have never thought to visit and each one was better than the next. The food was amazing and her ability to add color and background to the food, area, and experience made it all the better. The tour even included a visti to the local market to learn about local fruits, vegetables, and peppers...which the cook in our family loved! Totally recommend this tour and will do it again when we are back in Playa del Carmen.

Went out on Nov 13th with Juan. It was just him and I and the tour was great. The food was diversified and we had three different dishes. The restaurants varied and showed me a few different slices of Playa Del Carmen. Juan was super accommodating and spoke perfect English. This is an inexpensive tour to see some great options in Playa. Thanks Juan for a great time - you need a raise!!!!

The food tour was absolutely the best food we had our entire trip. We stayed at an all-inclusive for 7 days, and the food was good, but the food on the walking tour was outstanding. Our guide Viktor was very fun, incredible knowledgeable, and engaging. He took us to some places off the beaten path, and I enjoyed the best quesadillas, costras, enchiladas, and tacos I've ever had. We stopped at a market, and it was really cool to see the different kind of produce available, and tried some fruit juices I've never heard of - very refreshing. I would do the tour again in a heartbeat!

Enrique was an incredible and knowledgeable guide. He tailored the trip to accommodate our children, and kept them very engaged while providing an in depth history and cultural lesson. Food was authentic and immersive while exploring the less traveled portions of town. Definitely a must do.

3 friends and I enjoyed a fantastic walking food tour with Victor! The food was the best we've experienced during our stay in Mexico. Victor was knowledgeable and very friendly. We learned about the local food, culture, history and he was kind enough to teach us a few Spanish words. Would love to repeat the tour on our next trip and will recommend to friends and family without reservation.

Provencho!
