What you'll do

Would you like to try Mexico City’s genuine street food made for locals and experience the most authentic flavours? The day begins getting into the subway, where I will explain you in detail how the public transportation works in this chaotic city. We will move to one of the most traditional and important markets of Mexico City and explore its colorful corridors where flowers, fruits and vegetables from all over Mexico abound; while we walk, feel free to buy anything you want. Inside the market, we will visit a “taquería” that offers one of the most famous taco of Mexico and a favorite of the locals. Later we will take the subway again and move to “the heart of the city”, Zocalo square. We will walk through the streets of the Historical Center making stops at the best-qualified street food stalls by the locals, where I will explain you the history and preparation of each of the dishes. Then, we will visit another market known for the exotic products, there we will taste a sample of insects that have been consumed in Mexico for thousand years. A few blocks away, we will visit a “pulquería”, place where the traditional pulque is served, an emblematic drink of Mexico that is still unknown in many countries. Finally, we will visit the first “churrería” in Mexico and you will try the best churros of your life! At the end of the experience, we will go back to the meeting point. During the whole tour, we will make 11 stops, take into account that some are essential and unfortunately don't offer vegetarian options. Drinks are not included but the average cost of a drink is around 20 pesos or 1 dollar. You can contact me if your desired date is not available.

John

My name is John, I’m a certified tour guide and I have lived in the Historical Center of Mexico City for more than 25 years. I’m a passionate traveler and I love to learn about each place from a local perspective, taste the food made for locals, move by public transportation or visit places hardly visited ordinary tourists. On my experience as a traveler, the opportunities to find authentic places are very limited. For that reason I decided to create this experience, to show the travelers like me, the real places where the locals eat in Mexico City, my favourite street food stalls and the variety of dishes that can be found on the streets.

What's included

Food
11 different street food tastings. Take into account that some stops are essential and unfortunately don't offer vegetarian…
