A local guide introduces you Mexico City's stylish Colonial Roma neighborhood as only a Chilango can. During a half-day walking tour you’ll get to know the historic district and eat in mix of ethnic eateries, mom-and-pop establishments, and atmospheric neighborhood restaurants.  Just west of the downtown’s historic center, Roma is offers an overview of Mexico’s food culture and history in one walkable district. This former haven of European elites and current bohemian enclave has experienced a culinary renaissance in recent years.  With the help of your English- or Spanish-speaking guide (both are available), you’ll have a glimpse of the day-to-day life of Mexico City, see Roma’s hidden gardens, historical architectural character, and century-old mansions. Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to taste fish tacos, authentic Oaxacan food, contemporary Mexican dishes, Mexican microbrews, mezcal, and specialty coffee.

We were visiting Mexico City from London for the first time and Enya provided an excellent tour of some great hidden gems in the Roma area. She was very friendly and knowledgable and ensured everyone within the diverse group of people on our tour had a good time. Mexico City is a place where it definitely pays off to have someone showing you the best places. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city. Thanks Enya!

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 visited 5 restaurants and a specialty coffee shop. The tour length was about 4 hours. The right amount of time to eat at the stops. Several stops had good restrooms. There were some stops for historic interesting buildings - you do not go in. The restaurants were all very good - top chefs and top ratings. One stop was vegetarian. Our tour leader was Joseph - he was very knowledgeable about the area and each restaurant. He lives in the neighborhood. One stop had wine (small pour), one stop had a smoky margarita (half pour). Many food stops has unique food (don't worry, no grasshoppers). The tour was in english and there were 8 people touring. It is a 5 minute walk from the tour end to the La Roma Brewery (taste room with some food options on site). FYI.

We had a terrific guide: friendly and knowledgeable about the food, food scene, and local history. We visited a wonderful array of eateries, including one that helped establish Roma Norte as the culinary center of Mexico City and some that traditional and others that are avant garde. Great for omnivores and vegetarians alike!

Wonderful food tour in Roma. Our guide, Enya (fluent in English and Spanish) was superb and made the tour so special. She was knowledgable and insightful about the food and also the architecture of the area. We sampled an array of delicious food and drinks and enjoyed the varied tastes and presentation at each restaurant. A perfect and fun way to spend an afternoon. Would highly recommend the tour - and Enya as a guide.
