Tour description

The Taco is not only a dish, it is a way of eating .

Mexican gastronomy has been declared by UNESCO as an intangible heritage of humanity and is one of the most famous.

According to Taste Atlas: The taco is the 4th best street food in the world . Mexico City offers a wide variety of these dishes.

We will visit 3 taquerias on the street, each place has different dishes. There are options for animal and vegetable protein, cheeses, sauces, garnishes. (There is room for everyone: vegans, vegetarians and pescatarians)

We will talk about the pre-Hispanic taco and its evolution. The correct way to eat it and the cultural importance. Also how to identify a good place to eat on the street.

Take into consideration:
- This tour lasts approximately 2.5 hours. The itinerary can be adapted depending on the weather or possible contingencies.

- Please bring an umbrella / umbrella, jacket and closed shoes.

- This tour does not include food or drinks. Each taco costs around $20 MXN and water $25, so consider this to bring in your pockets.

° Find us at the Fuente de las Cibeles , near the letters CDMX, look for the umbrella and GREEN shirts .

° At the time of booking it is necessary to leave a correct and active WhatsApp number since sometimes due to events and protests, the streets and the nearby metro usually close. We will notify you, if applicable, of the alternate meeting point to carry out the tour and enjoy the day.

Coyoacán and Frida Kahlo neighborhood" and "Cable car + Urban Art: The largest neighborhood in the city"

Daniela was amazing! She is a local from Roma and put a lot of love into her tour. In this tour, we visited 3 taquerias and tasted different tacos on each one, such as: birria, campechano, pastor with cheese, and many others. We explored spots that we would had walked by and we tried tacos that I'd never tried without Dani's guidance. We especially appreciated that Daniela takes her time to attend everyone's dietary needs and cares that everyone are enjoying the experience.

Elaine was so great. When I stubbed my toe she was fully prepared w/ a 1st aid kit. She gave great reccs for outside of the tour. The spots she took us were fabulous and gave good sense of Mexico City. Only wish is we got to learn a bit more about the area, and the people in the specific stalls we went to. And would've wanted dessert :)

We took the taco tour with Alejandro (Alex)! He was a fantastic guide, very polite, professional and with a happy attitude. He was always willing to answer any questions we had (not always related to tacos) with a smile. He is very knowledgeable and this was evident when we also took the historic centre tour with him the next day. Gracias Alejandro!

What a fun way to be introduced into Mexico City by sharing some tacos with friends of old and new. Happy to say that these were street tacos and not at restaurants!
