The food was exceptional, and our guide, Pamela, was top notch. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to talk to. The gelato at the end was the perfect way to cap the end of the tour. I even travelled by myself the next day to the same gelato shop because it was so tasty. I’ll definitely book again the next time I’m in town.

Pamela was our guide. She was so wonderful. She took us through the market and the centro area where we tasted so many delicious Merida traditional foods. And she knows the best sushi and gelato around! We had a great tour and highly recommend anyone visiting this amazing city to take the walk with Pamela!

We did a food tour with Pamela and loved it! We’re on vacation in the Yucatan with my parents, husband and sister (all adults). We enjoyed every part of the tour and Pamela was a fun and interesting guide. We enjoyed going in the market and seeing the local culture and Pamela’s relationships with vendors. We had the best cochinita pibil of our life in the market.

Let Jose and Laura introduce you to Merida

Jose and Laura, brother and sister Merida natives were wonderful hosts. These two young people claimed to be learning English. I would go a step further and say they spoke English. My husband and I come to the Merida area for 3 months every year. My aunt and uncle were there for the first time... We happened to have a personal tour (not by design) which was nice. Most of the tour was in the main market in Merida, a place that can be intimidating if you don't know it well. Our tour guide/hosts select the vendors by visiting and sampling all the food they use in their tours... As lifelong residents, they already have a good idea of where to start. They also check the cooking practices, including cleanliness of individual food stalls. Everything we tried was amazing. We (as part time residents) tried things we had never had and broadened our experience with Yucatecan food. It was a great way to introduce Yucatan first timers to Mexican food that wasn't burritos and tacos. While the cost of the tour seems high, it is in line with food tours we have taken in other countries and is well worth its price... Highly recommended!!!
