This was the best experience! Diego the tour guide is incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable, and open about sharing his passion for Mexican cuisine. Take a tour around the flavors of Mexico with 4 different tacos, your choices of several Mexican beers or NA aguas Frescas (horchata, aguas tamarind, hibiscus etc). At the end of the tour you get fresh churros from a street vendor then about 20-25 minutes to wander and souvenir shop in a night market. Safe fast pick up and drop off right from our resort in the hotel zone. The length of the tour was just right. Not so short, and didn't drag on. Our tour ended up being 4 couples plus Diego, all strangers and conversation flowed comfortably. (It's hard not to be friendly when you are eating fantastic tacos, tostadas and drinking a Bohemian Amber! Our group was primarily 20-30 somethings and adventurous BUT Diego makes the entire experience so approachable that im confident that even a shy traveler or picky eater would feel comfortable trying new things. WELL worth the value of the trip booked on Viator. We will be going more food tours with this vendor next time we return to Cancun. And we don't typically repeat experiences!
Yum!

Rani_E, Apr 2024
Pick up was quick and convienent. Food was great - there were three stops for tacos and one stop for dessert at the night market in Cancun. I don’t like beer, but they had plenty of NA alternatives. My husband enjoyed the variety of beers offered. Tour guide G and driver Leo were fantastic and informative!
You will love this tour!!

G & Angel made our tacos & beer experience fantastic. We enjoyed 4 different places - 3 taco spots & 1 churro spot. I loved the variety & his recommendations were on point with how to order and eat the tacos for maximum enjoyment. It was a great experience to get out of the typical resort experience and see diff parts of Cancun!
Great evening!

Amazing Tacos and Churros
Michelle_M, Mar 2024
My husband and I loved this experience. We had some of the most amazing tacos and drinks. G was a great tour guide and Leo did an amazing job driving us around. At the end of the tour we stop at a market to get freshly made churros that are super delicious. Definitely a must do tour if you’re in Cancun.
What an amazing tour!

The food was tasty, I'm happy it was in the evening because it was much cooler outside. I dont drink beer so I have no review for that other than there seemed to be a pretty decent variety.
Delicious taco tour!

Definitely come hungry, I thought five tacos was not gonna be enough but I was full after the second stop. I really enjoyed the tacos. it was a great experience!!!
Come hungry; leave happy.

Had a terrific evening with my adult son. We were with one other couple and we all had a great time. All of the stops were amazing. The tour guide, Gene, was very informative. Each taco we tried seemed better than the last, and the churros for dessert were the best churros I’ve had in my life! The only reason I don’t give five stars is the tour said FIVE stop, and I only counted three taquerias plus the dessert stop. That makes FOUR.
Best excursion!
Emily_G, Mar 2024
Of all the excursions we did on this trip, this was by far the best. So relaxing, small group, and the most incredible food. Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. Absolutely must do excursion!
It was cool but…
Carey_M, Feb 2024
The tour guide and driver was great. We did not make 5 stops though. We only made 3 taco stops and a market stop. So I was confused. Also… there should be other options for those that do not drink beer. However it was a good experience for the most part. Also I was charged an extra dollar per person for the rescheduling fee… why was that?!
Tacos and beer
Madeline_V, Feb 2024
Pretty good food tour. It was nice to get out of the hotel zone and try styles of tacos from different parts of Mexico. The tour guide was nice.
