What people are saying about Central Mexico

What an amazing class only made more enjoyable by the friends we made by during the class! It was a great opportunity to learn more about handling chocolate with hands on experience of making ganache, tempering, maki g filled chocolates in molds, and finally Hand rolling and coating truffles. Highly recommended

Jimena was a great guide who shared knowledge of the city, history, and culture along the way. The good selections were amazing. A little bit of everything from exotic to authentic. Great way to see and experience the city!

Fantastic local guide and thoughtfully curated stops along the way! Wonderful choice to discover the history of the agave plant, in all its incarnations. Easy walk, lovely tour! Would definitely come back again :)

It was magical and a completely different way of seeing San Miguel, even if you saw sights you had seen before. My tour guide was amazing and the horses are not scared of a thing. I would completely recommend it!

Omar was so down to earth and relatable; thoroughly enjoyed his tour.
