We are currently not running tours in Mexico City. If you would like to book a Free Tour while visiting the city, we recommend you these Free Tours.
Join our Free Taco Crawl and enjoy an unforgettable gastronomical evening! Experts say that the Aztec capital has the best street food in the world. Explore, in between munching on tacos, La Colonia Roma, once considered to be one of the most dangerous areas during the 1980s, now one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the city. Find hidden amongst art galleries and vintage clothing shops some of the best taquerías!
Tacos, made of corn tortillas, are like a blank canvas which allows for a ton of creativity for anyone who makes them. You can find those with great names like “The Lawyer,” which is made of calf tongue and brains! But it’s not all brains and chilis: there are also mild tacos! However, should you eat a spicy one by mistake you can always calm your mouth with a cold, refreshing Mexican beer, or some of the many flavours of aguas frescas, which have become a classic in Mexican culture.
On our Taco Crawl you’ll visit different taquerias, try their best tacos and different beers, blend into the hustle and bustle of the city’s coolest neighbourhood, and become a Mexican for a night!
The taco crawl was excellent. My friend and I were the only ones on the tour so we basically had a private taco tour for the evening. Ari was an excellent guide, explaining the different types of corn and the history of some of the dishes.

I have done two tours with Strawberry Tours. The first was the Free Taco Crawl in the Roma district of Mexico City. The second was the Free Tour of the Coyoacan neighborhood of Mexico City. Both tours were lead by Hermes, a guide who is friendly, outgoing and fun. The Taco Crawl focused on two different types of Taquerias in the Roma district. Hermes, told us about the history and development of the Roma neighborhood as an introduction to the tour. After that it was straight to eating tacos. We also visited a local bar to try pulque, a Mexican alcoholic beverage made from the maguey cactus. I highly recommend this tour.
