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"

This is the one tour I wished would have lasted longer. I cannot get enough of tacos and I hopped we can just keep talking about more food and trying more. Deliciouse experience. The places we went to were well chosen, local, clean street vendors. Eli also gave us some great information about the Mexican cuisine.. thank you Eli for the coffee Candy dessert also. I would recommend.
