My friend and I were the only two on the tour, which really allowed us to ask questions and move through the market at our own pace. Our guide was wonderful!

Couldn't rate this food tour highly enough! The food in the Yucatán region is special enough to begin with, but our guide was very friendly and informative, taking us to the 'hidden' spots in the winding Merida market, a seafood spot and finally an ice cream parlour (with unique flavours!). All the food and drink was included as part of the tour and provided an authentic and special experience.

Our guide Azul was great! We started off with touring the main market in Centro (Mercado Gálvez). We learned how the market was laid out, where to find fish, local produce, regional produce, meats, spices and everything else. We sampled fresh fruits that had never heard of before (our favorite was caimito), we tasted panuchos, salbutos, tacos de cochinita pibil, empanadas de Chaya. We learned about the different spices and chiles of the region.We the left the market and tried seafood tacos at El Marlin and finished with ice cream and sorbet at a new place called Pola.Great tour.

Excellent tour, I only wish we had booked it sooner. We went to the main market in Merida, our guide telling us about the sights as we walked there. We tried a variety of dishes tamales, empanadas, tacos, salbutos, panuchos plus some fruit drinks and horchata to wash it all down. Then on to a fish restaurant for ceviche and finally an ice cream shop for dessert. Our guide was very friendly and informative throughout. We were in Mexico for two weeks and if I was asked to rate my experiences I would say this tour and our visit to Uxmal were the best.
