This tour is a fantastic way to see a totally different side of Mexico and how all of the many pieces of history have combined into an exciting, unexpected, vibrant cuisine. If you're coming for boring fajitas and margaritas - think again; what you're going to experience is a world of much more subtlety - from moles to ceviches, smoky mezcal to rich cocoa, the bright range of incredible local fruits, and yes, even some yummy grasshoppers along the way. This is a tour for seeing and trying new things, and enjoying a culture that is varied and deep. The best thing you can bring with you is an appetite - both to eat and to learn!

Mexican Food Trip was very enjoyable. The group size was only ten, as two people didn't make it. This was a good size and Intrepid should consider this size.
