Why take this tour?

  1. History and Food. Dating back thousands of years to indigenous cultures, food in Mexico is very much a centerpiece of the culture. Reflected in Mexican food are the cultures that have come to define Mexico as a country: Aztec, Mayan, Toltec, Spanish and even French. Come see why in 2010, UNESCO added Mexican cuisine to its lists of the world’s “intangible cultural heritage”. The aromas, textures and colors create a memorable experience you won’t soon forget.
  2. Local character and characters. San Miguel Food Tours will take you on an adventure that showcases the sights you came wanting to see and the ones you didn’t know about, but will be forever grateful upon seeing. You will learn about real local merchants who breathe life into the city with their powerful personal histories. You will see San Miguel’s history and beauty unfold through its stunning architecture, impressive natural terrain and fascinating locals.
  3. Good times. Eat. Smile. Learn. What can be better than fantastic food tastings combined with exploring and learning about San Miguel’s sights and hidden treasures, all while meeting new friends? Our goal is to make sure you have an amazing time and walk away armed with new knowledge as you continue your exploration of our unforgettable city. Armed with your new confidence and a host of recommendations we will give you, your good times in San Miguel will not end soon.
