We did the tour today. It was so much fun and our guide Gustavo was one of the best guides I ever had. Luckily we were only three people and Gustavo. Gustavo told us so much about Mayan history and today’s life in the Yucatan area! The three cenotes were unique in their own ways and I enjoyed each one of the so much. The trip to the cenotes on local transportation and the “Tuktuks” was an adventure on its own. The lunch at the end of the trip at the local family’s house was so yummy! Thank you so much Gustavo!

This was the best! Such a great tour. Gustavo was very knowledgeable. The market was fascinating and would have been impossible without him. Cooking together was amazing and so much fun. Eating was great too!

Exceeded expectations. Had an amazing guide that went above and beyond! The cenotes were family run and beautiful. Had lunch in the home of locals which was by far the best meal on our trip! Loved this tour!

Please read to the end! If you are looking for a working class Mexican experience this is great. You’ll walk through the historical center to a bustling market full of wonderful sites and sounds learning about the heritage of various spices and foods of the Yucatan. Our guide Gustavo was fantastic, sharing his passion for his Yucatecan and Mayan heritage, history and cuisine. Then you’ll take a bus to his Abuela and Tia’s home where you sit around the kitchen table chopping, learning and chatting. We had a really nice group. Gustavo is super accommodating, he even ran out to buy a few six packs of beer! I highly recommend this tour to learn some cool recipes and cooking tips.

Not only did we come away with a better understanding of the market itself but along the way recieved one of the better Merida history lessons from Gustavo . This made the market tour and subsequent home cooking (from what was prchased) even more meaningful and fun. Gustavo was enaging and informative every step of the way.He meet us on time and explained the days itinerary. Back at the house his aunt and grandmother were kind and generous and the food we helped prepare was one of the better meals we've had in Merida. This was authentic and unpretentious and a real feel for Mexico.
