From outings to the market to trips to the best taco stands, these tours explore all the great culinary experiences Mexico City has to offer.

Mexico City is alive with culture – from museums to monuments and parks – but don’t forget about the capital city’s culinary scene. In 2010, UNESCO named traditional Mexican cuisine an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Food is a great lens through which to explore Mexico’s history, and there are many tours that offer the unique chance to cook, eat and see what is usually reserved for locals.

meet our Local Insider

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
