What people are saying about Mexico City

Absolutely Amazing Experience. A must do when in Mexico City. Chef Eduardo is an amazing talent and even better person! Very knowledgeable and passionate about Mexican Cuisine. I learned so much in the time spent with The Chef! From the trip to the market, learning how to pick proper ingredients, to the prep, mise en place, execution and of course eating all the delicious creations. I can’t wait to use the techniques I learned. Definitely a 5* Class. I would highly recommend.

Our guide was great, super knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Teotihuacan is incredible, definitely worth the time and money. Early access is the way to go in my opinion because you miss major crowds. The food stop for lunch after was really good too. Bring lots of water and be prepared for a lot of stair climbing

We had a wonderful experience. We were picked up on time and the van was impeccable! Safety measures were enforced and we felt very secure. Our guide Ines was very knowledgeable. Our time was properly divided and we did not feel rushed. Ms. Ines was excellent and we highly recommend her.

I opted for the visit in Spanish and the guide Emmanuel is fantastic!!!! Erudite, motivated and very lively! I recommend! Muchas gracias Emanuel por su motivation y su erudición!

Early morning tour is the best thing we chose. You need to get up early, but worth it.
