Authentic Mexican Food Tour Summary

This experience is available year round, and the pricing shown is subject to variations based on the number of guests in the tour.

To think about Mexico is to think about its food, its culture and its people. This experience balances it all, with a focus on food. While touring what are arguably the three Mexican capitals of gastronomy (Mexico City, Puebla and Oaxaca), you will have a chance to explore local markets, attend cooking classes and intertwine food and histoy, at each of these states.

The tour steps away from modern concoctions of Mexican food, and instead focusing on traditional foods, techniques and ingredients. As part of the tour, you will also visit the best markets in Mexico, Puebla and Oaxaca, and learn about pulque and mezcal, tequila’s lesser known cousins.

Highlights
  • Take three different cooking classes, one in Mexico City, one in Puebla and one in Oaxaca
  • Visit and/or have meals at six different markets
  • Learn about the heritage and production of pulque and mezcal, tequila's lesser known cousins
  • Visit five archaeological sites, including the often missed but beautiful Cacaxtla
  • Visit Etla, home of the famous and most delicious of Mexican cheeses, the Oaxaca cheese
