My 21 year old son and I took this amazing tour with an outstanding guide, Diane. She was professional, communicated well, and provided our small group with 6 restaurants to sample from, as well as pointing out important aspects of Polanco as we walked from place to place. The restaurants were outstanding and my son and I learned a lot about this lovely part of Mexico City. This is a must trip for foodies and those who wish to explore beautiful Polanco. Unfortunately I managed to forget to tip Diane who deserved a nice gratuity. My son and I were the first to leave the group at the end, and it escaped me.....She is a wonderful tour guide :

5/5 amazing! Best tour guide and just overall spread of tastings was amazing! A little bit of everything you can imagine and just the stories and the history to each food item was greatly appreciated. I dont think I have one favorite but all of the restaurants were my favorite and yes dont come with a full stomach because you will eat a lot of food! Best experience and it was all walking in a beautiful little part of mexico city.

We loved our food tour of Polanco, and because we were the only ones, we got the private-tour treatment. Luis was great and gave us not only history but insider recommendations so juicy I'm not sharing it! We ended up re-visting most of the spots during our stay.

Great guide. Great food. Better stories.

I highly recommend you do this on your first day to get to know Mexican foods. On the day of the tour, I feel terribly sorry as I was running late. So, what I suggest doing is, if your hotel is far from Polanco area, it is best to go a little early as the traffic can get quite crowded. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative of the history of Mexico as well as the food and the selection of tastings was excellent. At the end of the tour, he also asked restaurant staff to call a taxi driver to pick me up, great hospitality!, would definitely recommend!!!

Luis was an excellent host on this tour. His knowledge of the culture and food was almost overwhelming. Yes, the price was a little high but we felt it was worth it. Overall, we were very impressed and surprised by Mexico City!

This was the best thing we did in Mexico City. Our guide was a culinary expert, and took us to places we had wanted to eat at but didn't have the chance. I cannot say enough good things about this. Do it. It's a great value even at 75, trust me and you will not regret it!!! We all LOVED it.

Polanco is a very upscale neighborhood with Rodeo Drive stores, walled mansions, and posh restaurants. Our very knowledgeable guide, Luis, provided us with the history, ingredients, and preparation of the food sampled at each of the restaurants visited. The food and beverages were delicious yet different from any we are accustomed to eating. Bring your appetite and sense of exploration for this three hour tour. Tip: Do not eat breakfast and wear sensible shoes.
