I was thrilled to go on this PdC walking Food Tour. I enjoyed eating where the locals dined and while this wasn't a 'fine dining' experience, we did discover the depth of flavour put into many of the regional plates we tried. One highlight for me was going through the market and discovering all the spices! thank you!

Our guide Xantal was wonderful. The tour company had suggested we postpone the tour due to the heavy rains of tropical storm Cindy but we love the rain and persisted. Xantal was a great sport about it. The foods were all delicious, but the Cochinita Pibil young pig cooked in a pit one of those taste treats that defies hyperbole. I will do this again on my next trip here and take better notes next time.

This tour was perfect, just what we were looking for. Xantal took us to several eateries and described how their preparation and cooking methods were authentic. The food was very tasty! We also went to an open air market for the fresh produce and other ingredients. Xantal is very personable and knowledgeable- a perfect tour guide.
