We really enjoyed tasting local street food, and our guide was excellent! Pamela was very knowledgeable and answered our questions throughout the tour. It was clear that she had a great working relationship with all of the vendors! I would highly recommend this tour as a way to experience the local cuisine of the city. Pame also shared recommendations for other venues to try during the rest of our stay - we will be checking those out!

Iveth and Kevin did a fantastic job guiding us around Merida Centro and through the main market for a daytime feast of culinary delights. Iveth expertly explained each delicious dish that we tasted and Kevin made sure to look out for traffic when crossing streets and rounding us up when we were lagging behind. LOL! They were both very knowledgeable and patient. We highly recommend this fantastic taste of Merida for anyone visiting the city, especially to get an overview and lay of the land on one’s first day in town.

The food tour is worth it. A very good and pleasant guide Pamela, which easily kept us busy for a few hours. Speaks fluent English. We had visited the covered market. the guide let us taste many Mexican specialties. After the visit we went to an authentic Mexican restaurant, where you only encountered locals. This was a bull's eye.
Afterwards we ended the day with a nice ice cream.
Highly recommended for young and old!

We went on the last Monday in January thinking that there might not be as many people booked for the tour and we were right. It was just the three of us along with our guide Pamela. Pamela did a good job of pointing out sites on the way to the market, explaining where we were going and what we would experience. The vendors she took us to were friendly and their food was delicious. She also emailed us recommendations for other places to visit the following day. We spent about 3 hours wandering, tasting, and enjoying the time we spent. If you are going to be here in Merida for a while, I would suggest going at the beginning our your stay, which is what we did, so that you'll familiarize yourself with a market that you can find just about anything you would need.

We purposely signed up for this food tour on our first day in Mérida so that we could get both a lay of the land but even more importantly, an introduction to the traditional foods of the Yucatán. Pamela expertly guided us through the Centro and into the maze of the Mercado Lucas de Galves for many delicious bites that left us very full and completely satisfied. We especially appreciated getting a drink with our first taste that we were able to carry around to enjoy with our others, and the progression of tastes through the tour. We highly recommend this tour!

Alejandro was an outstanding guide taking us to the open Santiago market to review the local produce we will be eating at the nearby food stands. So when you eat the food you really get the taste and get an understanding of the local cuisine. Highly recommended! P.S. Don't eat breakfast and come hungry.

Our food tour of the central market with Iveth Campos was worth every minute. There was just the two of us on the tour so we got extra special attention.

It was the day before Christmas Eve and the marker was packed. The displays of fresh vegetables was fantastic and the colours amazing. Our food tasting was great. Watching local people going about their pre Christmas food shopping was very special

All in all a great three hours that we would highly recommend

Oh and the last stop for ice cream was delicious

We absolutely loved this tour! It was one of our favorite things that we did in Merida. Seeing the market was incredible—so much life and color and activity and amazing food—but since it’s absolutely massive, it would’ve been tough to navigate well without a guide. Pame was the perfect person to take us through—she took us to excellent places and made the experience so much fun. She is so cheerful and full of light and life—all the vendors lit up when they saw her. Just a lovely person that we felt lucky to have spent time with.

Iveth Campos was a wonderful host. She was very knowledgable and friendly. She took us through delicious food stalls in the market and made sure we had time to ask a lot of questions. The Yucatan food we tried was absolutely delicious and varied. I also enjoyed having a chance to learn more about the spices, fruits and candies in the market. We also got to try ceviche at a local restaurant and gelato at a local ice cream place. It was absolutely delicious. I wouldn’t change a thing

We had a great time with Pame, she brought us to the local market and guided us through delicious, Yucatán dishes. We had our tour on Sunday, a new day for the tour, and the market was less busy. We ended the tour at a gelato shop when they had unique Yucatán flavors. Overall it was a great experience. Pame was very informative, telling us about the history of the food, how the food was made, when it is normally eaten. She also gave us restaurant and day trip recommendations!
