Lots of food, but little else
Elaine_B, Apr 2024
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.
Great tour
Amy_E, Apr 2024
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
Take 1: They forgot about us. Take 2: Excellent!

On the first day of our vacation, my family and I waited in front of our hotel for a pickup that never happened. Disappointing—it was too late to book another activity for that day. My impression was that the woman from the tour company who answered the phone was very uncaring. She didn’t offer an explanation or apology, although with some persistence I was able to confirm that they had our reservation. We ended up rebooking for another day. Fortunately “take 2” went off without a hitch. Diego, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and friendly, and made sure everyone felt comfortable. This was a great opportunity to sample authentic Mexican food away from the tourist areas. The market was an interesting inclusion and welcome break from eating. We were completely satisfied. No mention of murals, though.
Tasty Tour

Gee was awesome. Angel was an fantastic driver. Gee was super knowledgeable and dealt with my family's bombardment of questions. This whole tour was perfect down to the food and the market. This is my second tour with this company, did one last year. Still absolutely on top of it. Hoping the libre one will be available next year!

Great experience you shouldn't miss
pughkellie, Feb 2024
Great food, great tour guide (Sasha), and great friendly service! Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Second time for us and different locations we tried! Will do it again next year! Awesome way to get out and see the town, mingle with locals, and try authentic cuisine from the small businesses.
It's a must if you are a foodie!
Yeelyn_G, Feb 2024
It's perfect! This tour is wonderful! Our bellies were full! Gie and Angel are wonderful tour guide and driver. The 5 places were excellent. Plus, we get to partake on cooking class making corn tortillas as a bonus part of our tour. Two thumbs up!
Beyond expectations
Diamant_G, Feb 2024
Authentic Mexican experience we were looking for: local spots and eats. Loved trying new foods and looking around a local food market (not a tourist "craft" market). Guide was upbeat and informative, a perfect half day tour!
Alex and G!
Sierra_W, Jan 2024
G and Alex were absolutely amazing as was the food and learning some about the culture. We had an excellent time. The ride was smooth and the Market was awesome. This is definitely a tour to take if you want to get away from the typical resort food
Must do! Great way to see the real Cancun!
Heather_F, Jan 2024
Our tour guide. G, and our driver, Alex were wonderful. All of the stops on our tour had delicious food and drinks. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The tour was really educational and enjoyable. Would highly recommend! Great way to get off of the resorts and see the real Cancún!
Amazing food tour!
Katie_K, Jan 2024
Such a wonderful experience for my 1 year old and I to do on our last day. Our guide Roy was so informative and even took us to see the Cancun sign on the way. Our driver Alex was also super sweet!!! It was so awesome to learn more about the culture and eat food we never would have found on our own.
Horrible communication with Tour Operator
Joe_H, Dec 2023
No one ever picked me up at my meeting location. I need a full refund. I tried several times to get someone on the phone as well as respond to the app and WhatsApp. Very disappointing
Buena comida
dcgfvjfq8p, Dec 2023
DO NOT EAT FOR AT LEAST 12 hrs b4 this tour!…😂…man we did the morning tour with Alexi! He arrived promptly and did a great job explaining the foods and murals. Food was yummmmmmyyyyy….mostly succulent pulled pork in various preparations…I like the drive tru the towns or city. The local restaurants are cool and with awesome food. The walk tru the market was quite interesting. Very colorful and informative tour!!
Must do Experience !
Daria_B, Nov 2023
Roy made this a great tour. The restaurant quality, historical context , prompt yet leisurely. The pickup made it so relaxing with Roy & driver always accomodating. We were consistently asked about our food preferences , allergies etc. The murals were exceptional ! The food was plentiful & delicious. Thanks so much Roy

Definitely lots of food! You will be stuffed. Was a great experience, I highly recommend. They pretty much use a shuttle van to take you to the different spots. I’m used to doing walking tours, but I n the 90 degree weather, def happy to have that air conditioned van.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Dear Neha_S, We're pleased to hear that you had a great experience, even if you were thoroughly stuffed! The air-conditioned van can be a real relief in hot weather. If you ever decide to explore more or have any questions about other activities we offer in Cancun, feel free to reach out. 😊🚐🌮
Not a repeat for us.
Gail_S, Oct 2023
The pick-up from the hotel was very punctual. There was plenty of food. The first course was the tamale for breakfast. Then our group of 6 spent time at the local market. The market was small and only a few stands. We were given 20 minutes to shop before our group of 6 continued with the food tour. We went to different parts of the town and tried other local dishes. The tour finished with an ice cream dessert while viewing the murals. There was no explanation of the murals so it's up to the individual's interpretation. Overall, this is not a repeat for us because nothing really stood out for us.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
