BOOK IT!!!!! - Where do I start?! Alex and Leo were AMAZING! Leo was our driver and Alex was the guide! Absolutely amazing! Very informative! The food was DELICIOUS and PLENTIFUL! Worth every penny, plus more! The best food I had during my vacation. The final stop was the market where I purchased plenty of items. I could say it felt good to support local businesses, but in all honesty, there were so many good finds! And everyone was nice! 10/10 my group and I enjoyed our experience!

Excellent break from resort life! - This was a great tour that gave us a look at life in Cancun outside of the resorts. We stopped at 5 places: 3 for food, 1 for dessert and 1 for a market. The food and desserts were fantastic! Going to the market let us see where locals buy meats and vegetables and had a handful of shops to buy gifts. Make sure you have an empty stomach before you take this tour!

Great local experience - All the restaurants were great and had their own signature of taste and flavors. Even though the 1st stop was my favorite. Salute to all the cooks at the restaurants and our tour guide. I would recommend and also come hungry because by the end you should be really full .

Do You Love Tacos? - If you love tacos, you'll love this tour. We enjoyed authentic tacos at restaurants where the locals gather. Each stop offered a new experience. Each stop was delicious. If that's not enough, our guide Gib and driver Leo were fun and made the tour very enjoyable. I highly recommend this adventure!

Great tour - What a great tour! Do not eat anything before you go on this tour—it is a lot of food. It was all delicious; it was my son’s favorite part of the trip. Diego was a great tour guide

Lots of food, but little else - The food was amazing, and we certainly had plenty of it! However, there was nothing about murals or artwork within the city. We were somewhat disappointed. However, if you are just looking for a gastronomic delight, this tour is just perfect.

Avoid like the plague - Very slow. Crowded. I had to ask some Chinese students to stop smoking in the covered eating area. They did not like that. I explained it is illegal in the UK. They were angry! The following day I had the worst sickness I have ever suffered.

Never even got picked up 😞 - Never even got picked up by the company for my excursion and was unable to contact anyone via phone, email, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. As a travel agent myself, I would be very weary of sending my guests with a company that is so unprofessional.
