Mexico City
Off the Beaten track walking Tour

Explore the Authentic Side of Mexico City Beyond Tourist Hotspots!

Dive deep into Mexico City, venturing beyond the popular tourist bubble to discover the hidden gems of Santa Maria la Ribera and San Rafael, neighborhoods that are still not widely known but are becoming increasingly popular. Our walking tour is a safe and immersive journey into the real-life pulse of Mexico, where we embrace local experiences and use public transportation to weave through the city’s rich history.

Starting with a warm beverage and our favorite pastry, we’ll gather, chat, and become acquainted with our fellow explorers. In San Rafael, we’ll tantalize our taste buds with street food from a cherished local stand, delving into the neighborhood’s captivating history and architecture.

Moving on to Santa Maria la Ribera, we’ll admire its main monument and indulge in the most traditional dish from Oaxaca at a local restaurant. As we continue our culinary odyssey, we’ll introduce you to Pulque, an ancestral drink deeply rooted in Mexican tradition.

Fear not, our walking tour is not just about food! It’s a comprehensive experience that allows you to absorb the atmosphere, stories, and local life of these overlooked historic colonias. And yes, we’ll use public transportation, where every ride unveils intriguing tales of the city.

Before bidding farewell, join us for a refreshing michelada, an alcoholic beverage (we also have non-alcoholic options), as we share stories, exchange recommendations, and immerse ourselves in the authentic spirit of Mexico City.

This was a fantastic day with Raul. He was very patient and tailored the day to what we wanted and needed. He was also very cautious about bikes and traffic. We loved getting to see the two different neighborhoods, local food and the market. Highly recommend this if you want a chilled day getting to see the area and enjoy the food and sights.

A great way to spend the day in Mexico City, the food was all delicious with vegetarian options at all the stops too. Felt so safe cycling around the city with Fernando, who was so knowledgeable on the history of the city and neighbourhoods. Definitely go hungry because you’ll want to try as much as possible. Would highly recommend!

Amazing tour! The tour guides were so lovely and knowledgeable. They brought us to many authentic food places and the food was delicious, the best I’ve had since I arrived in Mexico City! The tour was leisurely and in a small group which meant we had great chats with the guides and learned so much! Highly recommend! Make sure you go hungry 😁

This is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had while traveling. I work for a food tour operator, so I make a point to do food tours everywhere I travel, and this experience was so amazing. Fernando, Raul, and Paxi made the tour so much fun. It was a perfect balance of city and rest, because we got to go through different parks and see nature. The food was so varied, and I loved the stories they shared about the different stops we did, and I cannot recommend this enough. It was very vegetarian friendly! I hadn’t written a bike in about 10 years, but they made me feel so safe riding through the streets of Mexico City and there were a lot of bike lanes. we even had some kids on our tour Who were able to ride along just fine. It covered 8 miles but over five hours, it wasn’t exhausting at all. If you are considering booking this tour, do it! I did the Mexico is not just tacos, and next time I come back to Mexico City I’ll be doing another tour with them.

I've taken a ton of tours all over the planet and this might be my favorite. The Foodhoodmx team is professional, friendly, informative, fun, cool to hang out with, and on and on. We got tons of food and drinks. We saw so many places and learned so much. The price is a bargain for the amazing experience. Highly recommended!!!

We had a terrific food/bike tour with Raol. We highly recommend the Food Hood team and look forward to their other tours on our next visit.. Today’s adventure was a perfect meander through the Roma, Condessa and the Bosque neighborhoods, stopping to hear all sorts of stories and eat fabulous fresh local foods.

Food hood tour was probably the best we have ever been on. The guides were warm, friendly, and were so kind and accommodating to my children. Come hungry because you will be exposed to the best local cuisine the city has to offer and several local neighborhoods in a relaxing pace on comfortable bikes. Thank you Fernando, Paxi, and Raul ❤️

Such a fantastic tour! Mario was so knowledgeable about so many things, not just food. He taught us about the history of the city, current happenings, cultural tips, nuances of the Spanish language within the city, I could go on and on. Another important thing to note is that Food Hood Tours seems to be smaller than other food tours we saw. I'm sure the other ones are great, but it sure is nice to only ride around the city in a group of 4-5. We loved it! Thank you Mario!
