Excellent tour, I only wish we had booked it sooner. We went to the main market in Merida, our guide telling us about the sights as we walked there. We tried a variety of dishes tamales, empanadas, tacos, salbutos, panuchos plus some fruit drinks and horchata to wash it all down. Then on to a fish restaurant for ceviche and finally an ice cream shop for dessert. Our guide was very friendly and informative throughout. We were in Mexico for two weeks and if I was asked to rate my experiences I would say this tour and our visit to Uxmal were the best.

Our guide Jose is a very likable young man who gave us insight into the Mayan culture, especially the culinary culture. Mayans are friendly and the city is very safe.

This tour was not only fun, but was also very useful and educational. I would recommend that every first time visitor to Merida go on this tour, if possible on your first day in town. Everything we tried was very delicious and the tour makes the market less intimidating.

Our guide was terrific and very knowledgeable. The market needs a good power wash so if you are squeamish there were a couple of stops that may make you hesitate. Overall, the food we tasted was very good and the experience was fun.

The Merida Street Food Walking Tour was a good experience. It introduced us to some of the local specialties and a great trip through the market showing the ingredients used in Yucatecan cooking. The selection of foods was a little limited, as was the information on the history of Merida. But our guide, Laura, was a gem: personable, cheerful, truly bilingual, and an excellent source of information about the various foods we were trying. The tour was good, but could use some improvement.

Our guide for the tour was José Luis Trejo. What a great tour it was. Me and my wife were delighted by the wonderful introduction to the culinary delights of Merida by Jose. He is a great tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed his company. We tasted so many types of Yucatan foods and fruits. Learned a lot about the market and Mexican culture along the way. Thanks a lot Jose - our journey to Mexico would have been incomplete without meeting you along the way!!!
