Our entire experience with this tour was very positive. Getting a view of GTO through the lens of street food is certainly a way to fall in love with the city. John was great. I felt the pricing was reasonable and I would highly recommend this tour to most people.

With 3 days in Guanjuato we decided to take this tour as a way to get our bearings. It was as great as the reviews make it sound. Actually, a perfect tour from the perspective of the 7 of us on it — ranging from a well-traveled 9-year-old from another family to my 18-year old who usually gets angry when we do tours to a jaded traveller like me who eschews tours as I like to explore on my own. Eat, walk (and digest) hear about the culture and history, including the cities key role in the Mexican Revolution. Then repeat — eat, walk, history in bite-sized 10 minute talks etc..

Too bad I can’t give 10 stars for John’s food tour this morning. While sampling gorditas, tamales, carnitas and ice cream from street vendors we were treated to a fascinating history of the city, the cosmopolitan and social structure, the economics of living here and the daily ebb and flow. The food was delicious and John was as engaging and pleasant and anyone could possibly be.

This was so much more than a food tour. It was a walking tour of the town with lots of food added. We learnt about the history of the town and its role in Mexican Independence, the links with Cervantes, the geography of the area and about the tunnels.
Moreover, there was plenty of delicious food to be eaten. We started with fresh pastries from a bakery, then went to a savoury food stall with gorditas and tlacoyos, then had some fresh juice, followed by tamales, then tacos and finishing off with ice cream! Going up to the Pipila Monument via the funicular with the views over the town was a highlight. Laura was our guide and she was fantastic. She even told us about a Mexican Son concert later that night which was also a great part of our trip. She also took lots of photos of us throughout which was brilliant. Book this tour!.

I’ll add my voice to the chorus. John and his partner have created a first-class visitor service that really immerses you in the city. The information is as savory as the chow.

Tim took us on an educational and tasty tour of Guanajuato’s city center. It was a delight to experience the variety of street foods the city has to offer with an experienced guide. His explanations of both food and culture were a great introduction to this delightful place, so we recommend taking the tour early in your visit. But beware! The delicious food is plentiful, so pace yourself!

Must do! The best food tour ever taken!

We have been too scared to eat street food in Mexico, but this wonderful food tour took all of the concern out of it! We ate only at places they knew to be safe and delicious. The patient and knowledgeable Ashley guided the seven us through the back streets of Guanajuato. We stopped along the way to indulge. Everything from the fresh juice to the fantastic sopes to the magnificent tortas were wonderful. Ashley shared historical and cultural info along the way which was very appreciated. And each person in our group was well worth talking to. What a treat all the way around! Highly recommended.

We linked up with Tim for his Guanajuato food tour and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Not only did we get to try some great street food and learn where all the choice vendors are, but we really got to know our way around the city – something that was eluding us even after living in Guanajuato for a month prior.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to try new foods, learn about the city and culture, and spend some time with a great guy who knows his ABCs about GTO. Highly recommended!

We tried out this street food tour in Guanajuato and can warmly recommend it. It’s a great way to familiarize yourself with the city and find places you wouldn’t find just by yourself. So if you’re ever in Guanajuato, in search of tasty food and interesting stories, get in touch with this company.
