Dive into Mexico City’s celebrated food scene on a taco crawl. Eat at some of the best taco stands in town, discover the delectable tacos al pastor (slow-roasted, marinated pork tacos) and sip mezcal in one of the city’s sensational bars. The next morning, dive into the markets and be awed by the amount of fresh produce on offer and discover the city’s historic centre.
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.
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.
Take the bus to Zipolite, where we’ll visit the colourful markets in search of this town’s culinary treats. The next day, head out on a fishing expedition and enjoy some chill-out time on the beach. Learn how to make ceviche (raw fish cooked in citrus juice) in the true Mexican style. Then it’s time for one final dinner to celebrate this divine Mexican food adventure.

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! ;)
