Modern meets ancient in Mexico City. This former Aztec capital is full of incredible sights, rich in culture and home to a famed food scene which is definitely worth discovering.
Oaxaca is a culturally diverse city with beautifully preserved colonial buildings, impressive archaeological sites, amazing markets and one of the most respected art scenes in Mexico.
With a compelling history still reflected in its wealth of colonial buildings and churches, Puebla is a delight - especially its cuisine, which gave the world mole poblano.
Although crowded and smoggy, Mexico City offers a great variety of impressive museums, galleries and architecture, along with exciting night life and delicious street food.

Real Food Adventure - Mexico, May 2014
The trip was exactly what I wanted it to be and Gabriel was a first-rate guide. What I liked best about Gabriel was the way he managed to balance the culinary and the cultural aspects of the tour. He was also of considerable assistance to me when I came down with inflamed bronchitis.

Gabriel made it to one of the best weeks in our lives! Would love to do exactly the same tour again! The itinerary was almost perfect: I would stay less nights in Mexico City and for that more nights in Oaxaca! ;)
