Great tour--try it and you will be glad you had the experience!
Apr 2021
Juan was an excellent guide. We were the only couple on the tour--we booked it at the last minute, so it was just the 3 of us and we had an excellent time. We have found that local food tours are often the highlights of our trips. It gives you a chance to see where the locals eat and try different foods that we normally would be too afraid to try on our own. We did enjoy walking around the side streets and getting off 5th Ave. He did a great job of explaining all the different tacos and spices from the different regions of Mexico and how they blend the flavors to be unique to their region. Bring plenty of water--it is hot walking around! We loved trying the different fruits and drinks along the way. A great way to spend a few hours!

Juan was a excellent guide. We got off 5th Ave to all his favorite local spots. It was nice taking the tour in the beginning of our stay so we could get a feel for the area. Highly recommend!

Great food & Great people
Apr 2021
I took a solo trip to Playa del Carmen to get away and took the local tour hoping to meet fellow travelers and learn about local spots.

I ended up being the only one on my tour, but Abbey was such an amazing guide. She was able to explain so much about the area and the history behind the foods we were eating. I even told her that I was taking a day trip to Cozumel and she gave me some suggestions on what to do on the island while taking the time to show me where to buy a ticket for the ferry the next day.

In my daily life I do my best to support local business and it was great to experience some of the local spots with Abbey.

I can't recommend this tour and and Abbey enough!

Amazing food tour with our guide Indy!
Mar 2021
We loved walking around Playa and getting to try many different types of local food (tacos, enchiladas, juice, chilaquiles). We went to many different spots that we would never have found without the tour.

I recommend this tour.
Feb 2021 • Couples
The tour was great. I love “street food”. Places that locals frequent and are not touristy. This met all my expectations. And our guide Coco was great too. Very nice and personable. Spoke great English and was very knowledgeable of the area.

Very enjoyable
Indra did a great job. Super nice. Very good food options. Tacos al pastor, enchilada with mole and jugos were all superb. Other options also good. Lots of walking and eating through busy streets. May not be well suited for kids. Very nice way of exploring good food outside tourist areas.

Interesting experience but food was just ok
Dec 2020 • Couples
Definitely an interesting experience but the food wasn’t anything special. Decide to go for the experience rather than the expectation of eating amazing food. The Mole was an exception as it was indeed very good. You do eat a lot so definitely go with an apetite and an open mind.
