This was an amazing tour! Indy was an awesome guide and really gave us a lay of the land. The food we had was so so so good, absolute hidden gems that we could not have found without Indy as our guide. We recommend you do this at the beginning of the trip so you can go back for seconds/thirds! A must do if you visit Playa del Carmen.

Our tour guide Enrique was fantastic and really showed his love for this area as a 30 year resident. We felt as though he was taking us to places that he genuinely liked and ate at - a real locals experience. All of the food was fantastic and we finished our tour full and happy, but not over-stuffed either. Taqueria Gomez was a stand-out for us, for sure...some of the best tacos that we've had here. Enrique was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Great job!!

Joshua was very knowledgeable about the area and the foods. He was very friendly and ready to answer all our questions. The food was excellent. I am vegetarian and had no problems getting food. And it was great to eat in non touristy places.

Indi was the best guide ever! He brought cool hibiscus tea to keep us hydrated at the beginning of the tour. He was super informative and nice. The tour was way more than I expected and was totally worth it! Indi made it super easy at each spot.
