I did the Santa Maria la Ribera tour during the week with a couple friends and had an amazing time. The guides took us to 7 (!) different restaurants and taught us a lot about both the cuisine we were eating and the neighborhood that we were visiting. I could not recommend this tour enough, and I will definitely be booking Eat Mexico tours on my next visit south of the border.
Food & Culture Tours in Puebla
A Gorgeous Colonial City with a Food Culture of Its Own
Puebla is well-known for its spicy, chocolatey mole, but there’s a broader, fascinating food culture in this bustling colonial city. On our street food and market tour in downtown Puebla, we’ll show you the ins and outs of the city and share our favorite dishes, from crunchy molotes to piled-high cemita sandwiches. This walking food tour in Puebla is led by a born and raised poblana (a woman from Puebla) and includes a taste of a half-dozen popular local foods.
Located about 75 miles southeast of Mexico City, Puebla is easily reachable by luxury bus. You can reach this city in about 2 hours leaving from either Mexico City’s TAPO terminal or the airport. Our team at Eat Mexico is also happy to help you with more detailed directions — just get in touch with us.

My husband and I did a 3.5 hour food tour in Mexico City with Eat Mexico, and we loved every second of it! We did the Gourmet San Juan Market & Street Food Tour getting a chance to eat tostadas, food from Oaxaca, street tacos, delicious Mexican fruit, Mexican wine, pulque, and so much more! Highly recommend this tour.
It was our first time to Mexico City, just in time for Dia de Los Muertos. We signed up for the Dia de los Muertos food tour at Jamaica Market – We wanted to learn as much as possible about the holiday and get a sense of local food traditions. It was such a great way to immerse ourselves for a few hours and to see a market that we probably wouldn’t have visited, otherwise.
We booked the Streets & Sweets private tour on our first morning in Mexico City. This was recommended as we have two younger children. Nico was our guide, and we really enjoyed our time with him. He speaks very good English, is extremely knowledgeable, and he’s just an all around nice guy.
Eat Mexico’s partnership with La Ruta de la Milpa makes for a great way to see a part of Mexico City that it would be impossible to see on your own (Milpa Alta is still technically within the boundaries of the city!)…
