Excellent Guide and Fantastic Food
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Indra is an excellent guide. You can tell he loves the city and loves the food. He has great positive energy and we really enjoyed our time with him. It's impossible to say what I liked best, everywhere he brought was unique and delicious. We definitely did not leave hungry but we did leave with a better understanding of the local cuisine and great memories. I would absolutely recommend Indra and Eating with Carmen to my friends.

Come hungry!
We had a great experience with Joshua. We went to 6 spots outside of 5th Avenue. We got quesadilla, mole, fresh juice, Al pastor taco stand, carnitas tacos, and fruit ice cream. My favorite was the mole. Our guide, Joshua, was very friendly and knew his history about the city. He also has a pretty cool background traveling and playing music. Definitely check out this food tour while you’re in Playa.

be bold and brave!
enrique was amazing to tour with! in addition to sharing his historical, plant, and local knowledge, he introduced us to the opportunity to eat like the locals.

i tried many foods and drinks i would not have consumed on my own. i fell in love with pastor tacos, fruit popsicles, and the green juice 💓

it was also a wonderful opportunity to connect with two fun couples from poland, adventurous anya from germany, and a lively cali couple. such fun souls!

enrique also helped us get a taxi back to our resort safely.

and, i feel fantastic today…having eaten like a local 👍 can’t wait to explore more that playa del carmen has to offer. thank YOU, enrique; hope you enjoyed tacos with your wife last evening.

Authentic Mexican food!
Oct. 2021 • Family
Our guide Indi was the best. Very passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Playa del Carmen. The food was great! We would not have gone that far off the tourist strip on our own, but felt safe and in good hands the entire way. Our favorite riviera maya excursion we have done.

Awesome street food
It was a great trip, our guide Enrique was very nice and showed us the real mexican food places which we never visited on ourselves.
Everything was good organised and that tour saved our day, because the main street (5th avenue) is really annoying with all the street hawker.

Muchos Gracias

Joshua was very knowledgeable and personable, funny and choose the best local cuisine only known to the local people, a wonderful day. Recommend not eating breakfast before morning tour. You won’t be disappointed.

Amazing Experience
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Our guide, Indra, totally made this one of the highlights of our trip to Mexico! The food was truly authentic and amazing but his knowledge of not only the cuisine but the town of Playa Del Carmen, the art work and culture was truly admirable. He was informative, entertaining, polite and genuine. When the tour was over he even assisted us in getting a taxi back to our hotel. I would definitely recommend this!

Alex was an amazing tour guide! The food choices were excellent and the history lesson from Alex made our vacation. Felt like we were on our own episode of Somebody Feed Phil.

30th anniversary get away
Highly recommend this tour! Our guide was awesome. Not only did we get to experience wonderful food, he told us about Mexican culture and we got to see some street art along the way. This is a must! Thank you for making our 30th anniversary memorable.

Great food tour
Jul. 2021
Juan was amazing! Excellent English and lots of interesting facts and stories! We LOVED all the food and there were options for non-meat eaters (please tell them when booking, to avoid having to adjust the trip for you, last minute) Our group was awesome too! and Juan sent us photos within a couple of days after.
