Thought it was great. I’m not the best as it comes to walking For long distances but Gabriel took the time to make sure I was able to keep up. The markets are crowded and frenetic and full of everything and anything. Food is a great unifier and equalizer. We all need to eat and to see and experience it from the perspective of real locals and not some tourist-centric point of view was amazing. Keep in mind that this tour is not for the faint of heart. You’re going to experience a real market carrying everything from vegetables and candy, cookware and cutlery to open air butchery. It’s gritty and sometimes was overwhelming but I would recommend it to anyone.

The tour was definitely the highlight of my four days in Mexico City. If you're interested in food or culture, this tour is for you. Book it, you won't regret it.

This tour is an absolute must for foodies. Our guide was generous, informative, friendly and fun. We had 4 people in our group, a perfect size.

Gabriel was great , he was very knowledgeable and well connected at the market . The food was excellent and plentiful. Highly recommended.

it was a pleasure to go with someone who was both well spoken and familiar with the markets.
