We unfortunately had to cancel our trip to Playa del Carmen, and thus also our tour. On the reservation confirmation it says that they provide a full refund if you cancel within two days of the tour. Over a week ago (2 weeks before our planned tour) I emailed them to say we had to cancel the trip and get a refund. I have received no response. I have emailed three different email addresses (multiple times), filled out the contact form on their website, and called their phone number and left messages. Nothing.

DO NOT BOOK with this company unless you are already ON vacation. It turns out their cancellation policy is fake and they will just ignore you. Now we are out over $200 for no reason. I'm very disappointed. I hoped to still do the tour in the future, but after this experience I don't think I will.

This review is a lil late but had to write one because of how impressed me and my friend were with our guide-0Juan! We did the tour end of March and it ended up to be a private tour because we were only ones to book it that day. We thoroughly enjoyed finally learning the right way to drink tequila and mezcal! The rooftop bars we went to were great and snacks were good! We also learned how to make a mezcalita which was fun and made it unique! Loved how Juan was so passionate about what he does and how he made the tour fun. Would highly recommend this tour!

Juan was great! My friend and I had so much fun. Everything was amazing - the rooftop views, the drinks, and the food - we couldn’t have asked for a better tour! Juan is super knowledgeable and we learned a ton throughout the day, I highly recommend booking this :-)

We have done two of Urban Adventure's gastro walking tours in Paris before, so when we booked a last minute trip to Playa Del Carmen in Mexico, they were the only excursion website we looked at and we booked "Let's taco 'bout tacos" with very high expectations.

What we love about these tours is the enthusiasm, pride and knowledge the tour guides have for their local food and drink that they share with their new friends. Juan, who walked us around Playa Del Carmen, was definitely cut from the same cloth as his Parisian counterparts. Delving into topics about Mexico, the Mayan Riviera and how to farm corn to make the best tacos. He took us to places we would never have gone into without his local knowledge and then let us wallow in our taco induced coma in a stunning roof top bar.

Delicious tacos, good company and a great time. Thank you Juan.

We ended up having a private tour because no one else booked the day we did. Nonetheless we had so much fun. Juan was our guide and he was great! We got to try plenty of tequila and Juan taught us all about the different types and how they’re made. Also, the snacks they give you are so good, more like small plates than snacky food like peanuts. It was super nice to be able to see some of the rooftop bars in the city and have all of the drinks and food included in the tour price. Would definitely recommend for your next trip to playa del Carmen.

My partner and I did a tour with Juan Carlos and it was awesome. He was super informative and accommodating to us and our food restrictions. All of the tacos were very unique and flavorful. I would def recommend this tour to friends.

The tequila and mescal was top notch as well as the proper way to enjoy both. The snacks as well were just right. Juan was incredible with his down home charm, knowledge and just down right fun. Purely a joy. We also did the Taco bout Taco local tour was awesome. Great experience

We took this tour the 2nd day of our vacation and had a blast! There were only 5 of us on the tour which was great! Juan Carlos, our tour guide, was engaging, entertaining and made the excursion so much fun. It was great to learn the differences between various tequilas and mescal and then actually taste and smell the differences once the manufacturing methods are explained. The accompanying snacks were delicious and the venues provided gorgeous views of the city and the beautiful caribbean waters. We never felt rushed and when the tour was over, because Juan did not have another commitment, he was able to hang with us to chat a bit more about the culture etc of Mexico.
Also, we had a little mix up about the meeting time and place, and the gal at Urban Adventures customer service along with Juan Carlos worked very hard to be sure we didn't miss anything. They truly went above and beyond to be sure we got our tour in. Now I realize that we were lucky, it was a Sunday and our group of 5 were the only ones on that tour, and they probably couldn't do for us what they did if it were a very busy day of tours. But I would give them all an excellent rating for working with us and providing such a wonderful afternoon. We lucked out and took a second tour 2 days later and got Juan Carlos again! We feel like we made a great friend in Playa with Juan Carlos and Urban Adventures! I'll seek out excursions by Urban Adventures again!

A few days ago I had one of the best experiences of my life! I visit the most delicious places to eat a 100% Mexican tacos! Thanks a lot to Luis and Juan, I learbed a lot about real Mexican food and the culture. After experiencing the Tacos tour we went to the tour of the most exclusive roofs of Playa del Carmen, where we did a mezcal and tequila tasting! They also teach us how to prepare our own cocktails and told us the story of how mezcals and tequilas are made originally Mexico. This places are amazing, I highly recommend it! Thanks again for such a pleasant experience.
