Devour tacos & explore a market downtown

Cuauhtemoc, Mexico

Experience hosted by Tyler

2.5 hours
Includes food
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

We will walk around the Centro Histórico, stopping at 4-6 eateries to sample tacos, tostadas, tortas--even churros! We will meet and interact with vendors, learn the history and preparation of their specialty, and have a chance to ask questions and take photos. These stops are institutions, but unknown to the casual tourist, making this a unique taste of CDMX!

We will also circumnavigate a market famous for its quality ingredients, where we will taste tropical fruits and explore the dizzying displays of meat, fish, cheese, fruits, veggies, and everything else you could imagine--even insects if you are interested!

In addition to the food, I will also point out landmarks and offer tips for must-see CDMX gems that you will want to visit later. I have been leading trips to Mexico for so long that the country is deeply ingrained in me, and I love to share my passion with visitors to help make their visit the best possible experience.

Gratuities are kindly accepted!

Please note:
- Tours after 5pm do NOT include a market visit

Other things to note
During rainy season (May-Oct) bring an umbrella or raincoat as it often rains in the afternoon. SAN JUAN DE LETRAN subway is close to our meeting point--but I recommend Uber for easy and safe arrival.

I started Tyler's Taco Tours after teaching Spanish in California and leading students on cultural trips to Mexico for a decade. I am deeply in love with Mexico's food and people, and know the top spots that many tourists would never discover. I have a true connection to each vendor since I've been visiting them for so long, I'm bilingual since age 10 and know the bustling downtown area well. I delight in leading this safe and delicious tour and my goal is to provide you with an authentic experience that allows you to see the city from the angle of someone who moved here after falling in love!

Where you'll be

We'll be in the revitalized Centro Histórico, a melting pot of the best street food. Our stops normally include succulent pork and beef tacos, impeccably fresh seafood tostadas, unique green chorizo from the nearby state of Toluca, delicious tortas, and maybe even churros! I have a deep love and loyalty to each vendor, and you'll taste why I can't stay away from these places no matter how hard I try!

NOTE: This is NOT a vegetarian-friendly tour

tyler. don’t sleep on tyler. he’s knows cdmx. he’s incredibly thoughtful and considerate. upon meeting him i felt so comfortable (solo traveler). you can tell the he’s a regular throughout the city and the city loves him. this is an authentic taco experience (i was born in LA, so i would like to think that holds weight). my flight was delayed so i only partook on the tour for an hour which was a solid hour! thank you tyler. keep doing what you do!

I highly recommend Tyler's tour. The spots he picked were fantastic. He knows the best taco shops in the neighborhood and the tour was perfectly paced. He has a deep knowledge of CDMX. My wife, daughter and I especially enjoyed the tour through the San Juan Market. Tyler also offered numerous recommendations and tips for the remainder of our trip and continued to give us helpful advice even after our tour had concluded via the AirBnB app. 5 stars. Book the experience. You'll be glad you did!

We are so glad we chose Tyler’s taco tour to start our trip in CDMX. He was personable and interesting plus made us feel at ease the entire time. The tour was perfectly paced and Tyler KNOWS HIS TACOS!! We’re from Chicago which has a large Mexican population and there are great tacos to be found but these were the best tacos we’ve ever eaten. Tyler gave an in-depth and knowledgeable tour of the San Juan Market and knows so many of the vendors who were happy to see him. He cares so much not only about his guests on the tour but truly cares so much about all of the vendors (and their families!!) at every stop we went on the tour. Tyler not only showed us the best tacos ever but gave us tons of wonderful recommendations for the rest of our trip. Our ten year old daughter was with us too and loved how engaged Tyler was with her as well. We have done many Airbnb experiences and this has been our favorite one so far! We never felt rushed and left feeling even more excited about the rest of time in CDMX based on Tyler’s thoughtful recommendations. BOOK THIS TOUR!! You will love Tyler and the tacos! ❤️

Tyler was an amazing tour guide! Even in the middle of the pandemic we felt very safe on our tour and he took all necessary precautions. We had some of the best tacos we’ve ever tasted and tried unique styles only found in Mexico City. Tyler made our short stay in town unforgettable. Highly recommend!

Tyler is from Oregon but has been living in Mexico City for the last five years. He knows the spots a traveler would be interested in seeing. He'll take you to some of the best food stops in the Historic District. As someone currently staying in Historic Center, this tour was an idea way for me to discover venues I could revisit on my own. During the tour, we were greeted by many friendly vendors that offered a variety of excellent dishes. Highly recommend the tour. A great return on investment.
