We had a great tour with our guide Maria. We had already taken the Eat Mexico tour in Mexico City and, like that one, this did not disappoint. It sells it short to call it merely a food tour as food is the medium to view both the history and culture of Puebla and Mexico as a whole. The food, however, does not disappoint as it is varied and delicious. Most of what you will visit and experience are not things you would have found on your own, certainly not with the confidence that you gain from having an experienced guide. The Mole Poblano in the market was to die for and the Cemita was great, too. Highly recommended.

WOW....This tour is a "must do" if you are interested in learning about and eating local Puebla foods. Rebecca, a most knowledgeable and personable guide, and Aleyn, a fabulous guide in training, took us on a walking/tasting tour of a variety of "poblano" eats including pelonas, tacos, sweets, breads, mole and liqueurs. The booking process with Rebekah was extremely easy and organized and I was able to keep in touch with her via e-mail with my questions. Rebecca and Aleyn were a sheer delight! The Taste of Puebla Tour was truly one of the highlights of my trip!

Our family did an Eat Mexico tour in Mexico City last year. When we made plans to visit Puebla this time, we booked another tour. Because we have young children, we booked a private tour. Maria was an excellent guide. Her English is very good, she is extremely knowledgeable about the history and cuisine of Puebla, and she’s super nice. Almost everything we ate with her was completely new to us: molotes with huitlacoche, pelonas, cemitas, tacos arabes and Pueblan candies. There were a couple of other food stops as well. We were all absolutely stuffed by the end! I was very appreciative of how well Maria interacted with our children; she was patient and fun! She also made some great restaurant recommendations and suggested some places to shop for some specific things we were looking for. We really enjoyed our afternoon!

I booked this tour with another Canadian visitor to Puebla because of the stellar reviews. I asked for a locals' discount which I got and I wanted to pay locally in pesos but was refused. I inexplicably had to book through the website and no one told me about a booking fee which basically cancelled out my 10% locals' discount.

Tour guide was upbeat and knowledgeable. No problems with her at all. Tipped her cash in pesos, not USD on website. I just have a problem with the high USD price especially when I found out that the owner is a fellow Canadian charging me USD. Insult to injury! She offered me a full refund which I have accepted and need to check my VISA account to see if the owner followed through.

Just an overall poor impression of this company. I certainly won't be taking another tour from this company. Not.

Dear Joanne, Thank you for your honest feedback. I’m sorry that you felt the tour was overpriced. Regarding this issue, as an established company that has been operating for over 10 years, there are several elements that we factor into each tour price, such as our guide’s time and our administrative/marketing costs (we pay both our guides and operational staff a living wage – among the highest in the industry in Mexico), as well as food and beverage expenses and any other vendors costs and gratuities for them. I apologize for the inconvenience caused in having to book your tour online, as I mentioned previously to you, our operation is managed through an electronic booking system and we don’t accept cash payments for the safety of our guides, to avoid having them carrying around large quantities of money. I can confirm that your credit card was fully refunded on the date that I emailed you. Thanks again for your feedback and wishing you all the best.

Could make a reservation easily for the next day. I had a tour with the charming Maria who excelled in speaking English. She took us to several places. Really enjoyed the molote, tacos arabes and the semitas. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to explore the Pueblan food.

Recently a friend and I took the Taste of Puebla tour with Eat Mexico. We had an amazing tour guide Maria, who spoke English beautifully. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make our experience great. Maria took us to several local spots to taste specialties of the region. Everything was delicious, and Maria explained how the food was prepared and with what ingredients. She did not attempt to have us eat anything with bugs, although if we had asked, I'm sure she would have accommodated our request. We asked to purchase items in the market, and she also helped with that. We tasted a variety of foods, from savory to sweet, with drinks as well. In addition to info about the food, Maria shared with us information on the local culture and was able to answer whatever questions we came up with. It was a thoroughly delightful day and I can't recommend this tour enough. If you have the chance to visit Puebla, this is a tour not to be missed. Come hungry, leave happy!!!

Took this tour with some friends, and it was an incredibly fun experience! Our tour guide, Anais, was knowledgable, energetic, and very friendly. She clearly has a passion for sharing Mexican culinary history with others and that really shone through in her tour. The highlights (for me) were definitely our first stop to sample some seafood tostadas as well as our fourth stop to sample some tlacoyos and quesadillas made with blue corn masa! That being said- each stop was a unique and flavorful experience on its own and each stop fit with the overall theme of the tour. I highly recommend the Mexican Market tour if you want to really get to know some of the markets in Mexico City. And be sure to bring a big appetite with you!

We took the tour as soon as we arrived with the thought of scouting out options for later in the week. As it turned out Aleyn did a great job introducing us to the regional specialties and giving us a history lesson on Puebla. She pointed out buildings of significance in local history and brought us to the market to show us culinary specialties. Aleyn was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the food and history of the region. She offered additional suggestions for rounding out our week. Oh, did I mention the food was really good, tried some new dishes and dropped a notch on our belt.

Well what can I say... we arrived hungry and left stuffed!
After being a bit hesitant to eat any form of street food while abroad, we stumbled across the Eat Mexico site... and we weren't disappointed!
After sending an email to enquire about tours, I received a response within hours from Rebekah - one of the 'Women behind the magic' girls at Eat Mexico. Bek went above and beyond to ensure myself and my partner had a fantastic trip to Mexico. Not only did she help secure our spot on a Mexico City Late Night Taco Tour AND Puebla tour, she went out of her way to answer all my (silly) questions from "what shoes to wear" and to "what on earth are esquites".

After numerous back and fourth emails, our tours were confirmed and we just had to count down the months until we arrived. After several emails to Rebekah begging her to come on the tour, to my surprise she was there with Paco and his side kick Arturo on the night!

Paco (Francisco) was a true Mexican gentlemen! He knew ALL the right places and my goodness were his food choices fantastic. Tacos el Pastor were a hit but it was hard to go past the equites... (Corn, mayo and chilli powder.... you have GOT to try it).

I cannot recommend the tour, the company, and the food enough.

It was brilliant and I WILL be back to Mexico, and WILL travel with Eat Mexico again.

Not only did my husband and I experience one of the best food tours we have ever experienced, but we were introduced to the hidden gem of Puebla- that is, Rebecca our tour guide. Filled to the brim with fine food she also satisfied my husbands hunger for the history and legends of the great city. It is nice to find someone who shares my passion for such a wonderful place. If you are traveling to Puebla YOU MUST TAKE THIS TOUR.
