Alejo is also very warm and personable - the consummate tour guide! Our cooking session was also informative and fun. Would recommend this... More

We booked ourselves on this tour because we have just moved to Merida and we wanted a guided tour through the very crowded, confusing market that is to be our new shopping mecca. Alejo took his time while shopping to tell us about various foods and answer any questions that the four of us had. He had his car with... More

We had a great time in the market and Alejo explained everything and had enormous patience for our questions and dawdling. Although you usually have to take a taxi to Doña Bertha's house, this time Alejo drove us. Doña Bertha's house was humble but adequate. She is friendly and understands some English. We got busy and made a ton of... More
