Best taco tour - Diego and Leo were fantastic! We felt like we really got to experience downtown Cancun in just a few hours. We liked how we got to walk around the markets for the last 30 minutes of the tour. Definitely would recommend if you’re looking to do a short/half day excursion.

Do this tour!!!! - Love this tour!!!!! Our driver, Leo was very friendly and on time to pick us up at the resort. Our tour guide Alexis was also friendly and professional. He treated us like his family and did an amazing job explaining the history of the tacos we ate. Cancun Food Tours was the company and I will use them again when I return. My daughter and I had a wonderful time.

Great PM / Starter Activity in Cancún - This is a great starter and chill activity in Cancún to spend a late afternoon / early evening. We visited 3 different taco restaurants, each with unique style, quality, or history. The trip ends in Cancún Centro’s street food dessert and self-guided market walk. Easy pick-up & return. The tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable.

Great Food & Well Organized Tour - The tour was great! Alex was the driver and Diego was our guide. We went to 4 places and ate 4 different tacos and 1 dessert, with a drink option at all except the last desert stop. The (AC) van took us from stop to stop, and it was so easy and comfortable! A great way to get out of the hotel zone and try authentic food 😀

Delicious Tacos and Spicy Salsas - G and Alex were awesome as a tour guide and driver. Highly recommend getting picked up at your hotel. The taco spots were awesome. Definitely some of the more authentic food we have had in our travels of Cancún. If you want to add a quality food experience to your trip, then you should do this tour!

Great time! - Diego was our guide and Alex was our driver, both were great! Diego is super informative and friendly. My only down side was I wish we got more time to explore the night market.
