If you’re an adventurous eater, this trip is for you!
Our tour guide,Panda, was so accommodating. If we asked about a certain food or treat he willingly bought it so we could try and enjoy. It was so great to have authentic Mexican food ie. Elote, Tamales, empanadas and fresh juices. We loved the experience. Getting off the tourist track for the night was so fun. We finished with a tasting of amazing tequila. Loved the coffee flavored one!!

A++++ Take the tour, you will be glad you did!!!!
Nov 2020
This tour was one of the highlights of our vacation in Playa del Carmen. We almost didn't go, because of the rain - but we were so glad we went. All of the tacos were delicious and were the "real deal" - not anything like they serve you in your hotel. Each spot that was pre-chosen by our tour guide and the food was all different. P.S. go on an empty stomach!!!!! Our tour guide Ivan was extremely knowledgeable and fun!!! Thank you Ivan, for making our last night so memorable!!!

Gorge yourself on a mountain of tacos, best food in Playa
Nov 2020
My wife and I did the nighttime walking tour with Ivan and it was amazing! Best food in Playa, hands down (and we ate at lots of places). Be prepared -- this tour is not for the light eater. We put down over 8 tacos each, a Mexican hotdog, some Mayan/Yucatan food... and that was all before dessert. Couldn't recommend this enough!
