The Eat Mexico staff prides itself on offering a tour that meets your needs. In addition to our out-of-the-box signature tours, we also offer the following services upon request. Since these tours are based on individual inquiry only, please email us for more information, including prices.
- Cooking Classes: In Mexico City, our cooking class includes a bonus Mexican wine pairing, and it’s conducted in your local instructor’s private home. The menu includes an appetizer and main dish, and past popular items have included tacos al pastor and vegetarian bean-and-cactus tamales. This class can also include a market visit, if you wish.
In our Puebla cooking classes, we’ll set you up with a well-known local chef who can teach you anything from classic dishes like mole poblano or chiles en nogada, to innovative recipes such as mole-infused truffles.
Layover Tours: In town only for several hours? We’ll pick you up at the airport and show you some of the best of what Mexico City food has to offer. This tour can also include cultural sites such as the Zócalo, Palacio de Bellas Artes, Palacio Nacional and more.
Mezcal & Pulque: On this tour, we’ll set up a private 90-minute mezcal tasting just for you, with artisan mezcales that aren’t available outside Mexico. You’ll learn how the beverage is made, how to distinguish its flavors and how it’s different from tequila. We’ll start the tour trying a few street foods to open up your appetite, and pop into a pulquería so you can try this native beverage made from fermented maguey sap.
Streets & Sweets: This tour combines some of Eat Mexico founder Lesley Téllez’s biggest loves — salt and sugar. We’ll start off trying an array of street food, and then visit some of Mexico City’s best-known candy shops and bakeries. This is our most popular tour for children!
Sunday Tacos & Tianguis: On this tour, we’ll visit the lively Sunday tianguis at Parque James Sullivan, north of Reforma Boulevard, where you’ll learn about native Mexican produce and experience a typical outdoor market atmosphere. From there we’ll move on to the food — barbacoa tacos (and pulque if you desire!), mole tacos, carnitas and more. Note that we generally don’t try any street food on this tour, as most vendors are closed on Sundays.
Oaxacan palenque tour: Are you a mezcal fan visiting Oaxaca soon? We can set you up with a tour of Real Minero, one of Mexico’s premier mezcal brands. Tour Real Minero’s agave fields in Santa Catarina Minas, and indulge in a regional lunch prepared by the Real Minero family.
Please note that all customized itineraries require at least 10 days advance notice.
