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.

° To complement your stay we suggest our "Tour of
Coyoacán and Frida Kahlo neighborhood" and "Cable car + Urban Art: The largest neighborhood in the city"

Our guide was very nice and friendly. I was a little disappointed about the fact that 2 of the 3 tacospots where places I had already found online. Our guide would midway the tour tell us about how foreigners shouldn't visit Mexico City and if they were to do so, they should only stay in touristy places not to mess it up for the locals living here already, and therefore we shouldn't seek outside the tourist areas of Roma, Condesa and Polanca - but at the same time he was promoting another tour which was "not another tourist tour and showing the true and more local side of Coyoacan". It was a very odd talk, I fully understand that as visitors we should be aware of gentrification and its influence, however I left the tour with an odd feeling of not being welcome in the city. I would have enjoyed an insiders view of how we as visiters and consumers in a positive way can contribute and support local communities and not being told to stay away.
