    What to Expect
    You can bend, roll, fill or simply eat a taco. The concept of tacos is as diverse and flexible as its functions and history throughout Mexican culinary culture. Way before there was beef or pork Mexico had a wide array of Taco based dishes.

    On this tour, you will explore some of the most popular taco places for insiders in Mexico City. With the same wittiness and appetite for adventure, the author of the bestseller "Tacopedia", Alejandro Escalante, curates and often leads this tour keeping you updated with the latest trends on tacos in the city.

    But you will not only eat, Alejandro Escalante wants you to interact with the local taco makers, listen to their stories, get their secret recipes and acquire a taste for Taco aesthetics. This tour is a once in a lifetime experience. You will truly learn all about this delicious and traditional dish.

    Why no Taco-bell
    Seen better, they didn't even take me to taco-bell. Which I know is the country's main restaurant. I'd rather
