We loved our time walking around with Avi - a real mensch. We discovered taco places we never would have found on our own and learned a lot while eating tacos (the best way to learn). Don’t hesitate to book this tour.

Took Avidan's tour during my stopover in Mexico City. It was the perfect way to spend my couple hours in Mexico City. He was very welcoming and knowledgable about the food and culture. The food stops tasted amazing and by the end I felt like I had really seen the local spots in Roma and Condesa

My wife and I had a private taco tour with Avidan and it was absolutely wonderful! Far exceeded my expectations. Not only was he personable and friendly but also very knowledgeable. He took us to local spots with authentic Mexican food. The food was plentiful and wonderful. Very full by the end of the tour. Highly recommend this tour!

Touring around Roma and Condesa with Avidan was an incredible experience. We had an amazing time from start to finish, and left feeling not only full, but that we had truly learned about Mexican culture and cuisine. Truly this was much more of an experience than a tour. Avidan is casual, fun, and rolled with the punches. Someone in our group was not feeling well, and he found suitable alternatives for them to eat, going so far as to find them a bowl of chicken soup. Mensch is the perfect word to describe him. On top of all of that - this tour is a great value.

We had an outstanding afternoon with Avidan. He was charming, knowledgable and engaging, demonstrating a deep knowledge of the Mexican culture and food history. He adapted the tour to suit the group and offered insights into so much more than the food. The pacing was perfect, and he shared a wide variety of experiences with us. We have had the privilege of enjoying a few experiences, and this was one of our favourites. Highly recommend!!!
