My wife and I met up with Emily and another couple and their 2 daughters. Emily took us to a food cart several restaurants and local market. At each stop, Emily explained what the food was and from what region of Mexico it was from. All were delicious but I liked the cochinita pibil best. Emily was easy to talk... More

Overall we had a great experience with Emily during our PDC food tour. Short walks or cab rides, we did not have to wait around. Most importantly, the food was great!

We took Emily's Playa del Carmen food tour just over a week ago during our most recent stay in Playa. Without question this was one of our highlights. I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to get a local perspective on the food scene in PDC. Plus, taste some amazing food in the process! Our family of three (including... More

What an exciting few hours touring around Playa del Carmen sharing local foods I may have never tried on my own. LOVED the corn flour quesadilas and more the fact that we watched the preparation of this delicacy ... I felt like I was in the cooks' kitchen! Emily was the most informative tour guide, and was so comfortable in... More

Really enjoyed Emily's food tour in Playa Del Carmen. Started with a local food cart and after visiting 4 different spots, ended up getting to choose from a great array of Mexican ice cream flavors. Also got to visit a local market where she explained the spices, veggies and fruits used in Mexican cooking. Would definitely recommend this tour to... More

It was one of the hightlights of our visit - which is saying alot since I think we ate our way through Playa del Carmen!!! Definitely will give you an overview of the food and... More

We totally got what we hoped for and more. A great way to explore Playa Del Carmen. Emily had everything organized perfectly and explained and answered questions excellent. We have did a food tour in Honolulu China town and this one is just as good. Learn their culture through food. Thanks so much Emily..

After reading the reviews, we were excited to try this tour. Although the food was good, we didn't have an excellent experience. Something was lacking; maybe it was just a bad day for Emily. The tour seemed rushed and we did not feel engaged by our host. Simple things like taking our plates after we ate our meal would have... More

Hi Cheri, I’m sorry that you didn’t have a great time on the tour. Let me see if I can address some of your specific concerns for the benefit of any future foodies. Street stalls, some of the places we visit on the tour, generally have few places to set your plate, especially if they’re busy. My past guests always... More

We went on the PDC Food tour with Emily on 11/21 as part of our honeymoon in Riviera Maya, MX. It was a great way to taste and experience authentic local Mexican cuisine! Everything was delicious and Emily is fun to tour with and learn about the different Mexican cuisines from. We wouldn't have been able to explore PDC or... More

We've done a few food tours. This one is excellent. Emily was great with information before our arrival at Playa del Carmen, and on our tour. We learned so much about the food and culture of the area. She took us to places to eat that we would've missed if we hadn't done Emily's tour. It was also a great... More
