This was definitely one of my favourite tours I’ve ever been on. Guadalupe was such a wonderful guide. She was so personable and professional. I had a really great authentic experience in Oaxaca and learned a lot about the history of the different foods too.

We did the streetfood tour with Guadalupe and it was awesome. She is such a friendly person and its a joy to explore with her. She showed way more places then we could actually indulge, so its totally ok to skip a dish, if you dont fancy it at the moment. We went home in the evening with lots of amazing impressions of different dishes, that can be found on the streets of Oaxaca. As well we had a couple more suggestions added to our list by her, that we tried out the next days. Many thanks Guadalupe!

You MUST take this tour!!!! This experience FAR EXCEEDED my highest expectations. Guadalupe (“Lupita”) includes cool historical knowledge with this amazing food tour thru the streets & markets of Oaxaca. Lupita gently encouraged me to get beyond my “comfort zone” - and I’m happy she did as I experienced mezcal infused cakes (delicious), six different types of ice cream (including grasshopper ice cream!), new variations of tacos, and I “finale food experience” that was “soooooo gooood”!!! I am happy I took this tour!!! Steve from USA

BEST TOUR EVER. Seriously. Guadaloupe is very friendly. She took us to many places to try lots of different Oaxacan food, from soup and tlayuda to desserts and ice cream. And not to forget, mezcal. It was so delicious! She explained lots of interesting things about the food and Mexican culture. I would recommend this tour to everyone! Must do! LO MEJOR TOUR. En serio. Guadaloupe es muy amable. Nos llevó a muchos lugares diferentes para probar mucha comida Oaxaceña, como sopa, tlayudas, dulces y nieves. Y, por supuesto, mezcal. ¡Qué rico! Ella nos contó mucho de la comida y cultura Mexicana. Aconsejo este tour a todos. ¡Es lo mejor!

Guadalupe was an amazing guide. Showed us the secret side to oaxacas food scenes, that we would never have discovered on our own. The best Mexican food I have ever eaten
