Must do My boyfriend and I went on the food tour and it was the highlight of our trip. Getting to try all the authentic food was a wonder experience. Nav was incredible, so knowledgeable and so much fun! The market was a great break from all the delicious food and very cool. The transportation was air conditioned which was an added bonus
Delicious The tour started ON TIME which was important to my time in Cancun. Nav was an excellent host and made the right recommendations for each stop. The food was excellent and I’m glad we were able to do this tour. The first stop had the best dish overall! With the dessert stop, don’t think it taste how it sounds, all flavors were delicious. If they had a second tour route I would definitely do it again.
Great Tour Lots of fun! Claudia was a great guide and adds to the great experience with her humor and knowledge of the tour, the food and Cancun in general. The amount of people made this a great time that was not over crowded.

Good Way to Experience Downtown Cancun We thoroughly enjoyed this food/drink tour through downtown Cancun. It was raining, but we were comfortable inside the tour van with Jorge driving. Our tour guide, Navarro, was knowledgeable and made this tour enjoyable. My favorite stop was the carnitas @ El Polilla. Seeing the murals was a bonus.
