Alejandro greeted us for our tour outside the market, and was the absolute best! He even took plenty of pictures for us to remember the amazing fruit tour. Felt like I was glowing after eating so many fruits and many of them I’d never tried before. I would 100% recommend this tour (and Alejandro as your guide!)

What a great experience! We met our guide Diana on time and had a very cultural and immersive tour understanding the dynamic of the market and its people. Fruits were mind-blowing and her English and engagement made a superb experience. Definitely recommended.

A very detailed, authentic and very interesting and personable tour of the market with Diana. Many many thanks
