Great experience. We toured 4 different taco locations each with an Agua Fresca or beer provided & at the end 1 dessert. The tacos were excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable about each place. He was also able to accommodate those with dietary restrictions. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Cancun.

Awesome tour that provided us with a lot of beautiful memories. Everything from seeing the gorgeous city and surrounding murals to tantalizing tequila tasting and getting a history lesson on Cancun; this tour is for anyone wanting to better their vacation.

Nassim went above and beyond for the tour and the food was great! The graffiti and morals we were shown were amazing and had great meaning, culture. Definitely recommend and make sure you are hungry!

The people on the boat were lovely and it's a party boat with open bar... What more could you ask for. The snorkeling activity is a must.

Everything was perfect, the guide Gabriel, an excellent person, was on the lookout at all times
