Mexico City has more people than Ireland, Denmark and Greece combined. The term “meal options” here means something else entirely.
First an Aztec empire that was the largest in Mesoamerica, then the mixing by the Spanish and natives until the independence that would turn Mexico City into the new capital of Mexico that would last for centuries. Mexico City preserves millenary knowledge that implemented to our times has left us one of the most unique gastronomic legacies that we can enjoy.

Get fed, leave full.
We are not a tasting tour. we offer to you unlimited tacos. Yes. All tacos you can eat. The best part is that you won´t have to worry about what to order or how to communicate with the owners at each stop. Everything we eat is tried and tested.
Mezcal tasting & Beverages included.
Our tour includes (unlimited) alcoholic beverages and the opportunity for a tasting of mezcal from local producers made from the highest quality wild agaves. You will be able to taste the “tepeztate” which is a mezcal from an agave that has been grown for 25 years and is considered the jewel in the crown by the masters of mezcal.
Off the beaten path
We visit local neighborhoods where real locals live and eat. Your aren´t going to find any other tourist here, or run into other tour groups. Our restaurants are local legends, family-owned and often specialize in only one dish, wich means the quality is high and the flavor is even better .

+ Mezcal Tasting!
3 premium mezcals handcrafted in the sierra of Puebla by multi-award winning Melesio Mesa.
The tour includes a taste of mezcal made from a 25 year old agave, the crown jewel for master mezcaleros: tepeztate.
As well as 2 other wild agaves: Tobala (10 year old agave) and Madrecuixe (20 year old agave). The mezcal is made from wild agaves, which means that the mezcal does not contain any chemicals in the process.
