Market, Tacos and Food Tasting Experience of San Jose del Cabo
We went on this food tour on our recent trip to San Jose Del Cabo and had such a great time! Our guide was Gilberto who was just so knowledgeable about the food and culture. We could tell he really loved his job! The food was amazing at every place we visited and the tequila tasting and chocolate factory were a great ending to the tour. I would highly recommend this day trip to anyone who loves food and culture!

The tour had a deeper purpose—booking the tour supports the education of local youth about their heritage. As tourists we also must acknowledge the need to preserve water on the peninsula. Climate change is real! The 1.5 hour walking tour was easy to maneuver—the pace was perfect.

We loved the architectural history. The plant/vegetation was interesting but not needed as a stop on the tour. Our Guide was passionate, knowledgeable, thoughtful and kind. Our group feels that one hour is sufficient for the tour.
