An all-day-eating outing
This is for people who basically travel to eat. Tour starts at 10:00am and it goes until 6:00pm . We meet at Roma neighnorhood to have breakfast foods, followed by a ride in the metro towards the flower market and then hoping to Merced Market (the 2nd biggest market in town), then we’ll walk through the Historic Centre and finishing with a visit to some of the best examples of Restaurants with Modern Mexican Cuisine in Juarez neighborhood. Think of this as a marathon, not a race. (Price $190usd per person).
Central de Abastos
You know, just the biggest wholesale in the whole world NBD.
Located within the city in the south-western area, going to this tour involves walking up really early (6:15am) and walking a lot while dodging the fast carriers through narrow isles.

(Prices range from $160-$190usd per person).
There are 2 different ways we can enjoy this part of town. Going to the traditional Trajineras and enjoy the “Mexican Venice” with some Mezcal, old Pulquerias and a visit to one of the most unique neighborhoods in the city. This is a long tour as well 4-6 hours and it’s better enjoy with a bunch of friends. (Price range: $100-120usd per person)
