My husband and I love anything food related, so this was a huge highlight on our recent trip to Mexico City. In all, we visited 6 different restaurants, and each was absolutely amazing and delicious. At each restaurant, Grazielle would talk to us about the region of Mexico where that particular food is from, and as we were walking, she talked to us about the history of the neighborhood. It was a really cool experience and I felt like we got to see aspects of Mexico City/Colonia Roma that we might not have been introduced to without this tour. We would definitely recommend this tour, and if we're ever back in Mexico City, we'll likely book another one because we know it will be absolutely amazing!!

Luis was awesome. He was knowledgeable not only about the food, the restaurants, and the chefs, but also he was super knowledgeable about the neighborhood, Mexico's history, and even art and architecture. They were also able to accommodate dietary restrictions and vegetarians. I'd recommend this tour and tour company to anyone going to Mexico city who is interested in food.

This was a wonderful tour! Luis did a great job as a guide. He was so friendly, informative, and taught us a lot about each restaurant, each food, each drink, and just the entire neighborhood in general. I really did learn a lot today! It lasted a little over 4 hours and there was plenty of walking but nothing too strenuous. I would absolutely do this tour again or choose one of the other tours they offer. It’s great value for your money. Thanks Luis!!

This tour is not just about delicious, authentic, creative food, its about the soul and intention behind it. You will eat lots of amazing things, you will hear incredibly inspiring stories. Our tour guide Luis was super friendly, attentive on every step of the way. Making it all come together seamlessly and with joy. He knows his stuff about food, having received a full culinary education and worked in different parts of the world. Most importantly, being born and raised in the city, he is fully immersed in local community, culture and culinary world and shares it all while you stroll from one amazing place to another, taking in the whole experience of this part of the city. I tasted so many new things, interesting combinations, simply delicious food and drinks. I was moved by the stories that were shared. It's an amazing value on all levels that is on offer here. Go for it!

One of the highlights of my trip! The tour showcased a variety of locally owned successful shops and a variety of types of food. Our tour guide Luis was an obvious foodie with a wealth of knowledge around the food we tried and many restaurants we walked past. He also included cool details about the architecture and history of some buildings we passed. Overall, the four hours felt like two and it was a fabulous experience. Well worth the price.

Great food, and a lovely walk through the Colonia Roma area. Our guide Miara gave us interesting info about some of the notable structures that we passed on our walk from one restaurant to another. I am a vegetarian and this tour had great substitutes, so I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything. Miara also made sure I got juice/mocktail substitutes in places where alcoholic drinks were served. Pleanty of food and learnt a lot of new dishes. Highly recommended!

We had a great time walking the Colonia Roma Food Tour! I want to throw a big shout out to our tour guide, Luis, for not only taking us to a handful of wonderful restaurants, but for also giving us a history lesson of Colonia Roma. I initially signed up for the Spanish version of the tour that got cancelled, but Luis was kind enough to do the tour in both English and Spanish with no hesitation whatsoever. The tour itself inspired me to plan my next hotel reservation in Colonia Roma when I come back to CDMX. This will be a great tour for you foodies out there! Buen provecho!

I really enjoyed the food on the tour, which was generous in terms of the amount, and all very tasty - it was great to be able to try lots of new foods, and I especially enjoyed the vegan tacos and the coffee shop at the end. Grace (our guide on the day) was excellent - very friendly and approachable, she provided some really interesting explanations about bits of the city as we walked through the area, which was an unexpected but much appreciated bonus. I'd definitely recommend this as an experience; be sure to turn up with a good appetite!

We do food tours when we visit new cities as a way to learn the geography of a place, so we booked the Roma tour and were not disappointed.

Our guide, Queso, was informative and had a great sense of humor and told great stories. The variety of food was perfect - not all tacos - and we were very happy to head back to our hotel to nap after the tour.

We had a great walking food tour with Miara! She took us to six different locations for food and drinks, explained all the food in detail so we knew what we were eating and what made it unique/special. She also gave us a lot of detail about the neighbourhood and history of the buildings between eating. A This was a great use of four hours and we highly recommend!
