THE STORY BEHIND MEXICAN FOOD TOURS
Let us take you on a cultural-culinary journey that you will never forget.
Mexican Food Tours was born out of a passion for sharing Mexico’s rich culinary traditions with the world. In 2012, two friends who shared this vision turned a small talk at a birthday party into a business venture, fueled by their entrepreneurial spirit and love for Mexican food.
Today, the company is owned and operated by two enthusiastic women, Connie Estefan and Lety Hinojos, who are dedicated to creating the best culinary experiences possible. They believe that Mexico’s long history and ancient culinary tradition are treasures that should be shared with both locals and tourists alike.
With so many regional specialties to explore, each state in Mexico has its own unique culinary delights waiting to be discovered. Some of these are already world-famous, while others are hidden gems waiting to be uncovered. At Mexican Food Tours, we are committed to showcasing the best of Mexican cuisine and sharing the country’s culinary treasures with the world.
Mexico is a country that takes pride in its diverse and delicious cuisine, and at Mexican Food Tours, we are on a mission to share this culinary treasure with the world. It all began with our founders’ dream to introduce Mexico’s traditional food to people from all walks of life. Today, we are proud to offer some of the most exquisite culinary experiences in the country.
Our flagship tour takes place in the beautiful and exclusive Polanco neighborhood in Mexico City, which is known as the gastronomic hub of the city. We’ve also expanded our offerings to include Mexican Cooking Classes, where you can learn the secrets of our cuisine from renowned Mexican chefs. And in 2020, we went virtual and started offering online cooking classes that bring the best of Mexican gastronomy to homes around the world.
Our passion for food and our fascination with Mexican culture inspire us to create unforgettable culinary experiences for our clients. We want to share our love for Mexican cuisine and history with everyone. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, we offer a wide range of tours, classes, and experiences that will introduce you to the best of Mexico’s culinary landscape.
From famous dishes to local specialties, we’re constantly reinventing ourselves to provide unique and tailored experiences for our clients. Whether it’s a cooking party or a team-building event, we have something for everyone. Join us for a cultural and culinary journey that will leave a lasting impression on you.

Hi, I’m Sofia, since I was a kid my passion has been cooking. My first job as a chef was at a Michelin star rated restaurant “Le Grill” and then at “Omer” by Alain Ducasse in France. In 2020, I started working for Mexican Food Tours, teaching online cooking classes. For me cooking is the best way to tell a story, and there is one behind each dish. I love Mexico and want to share my knowledge, my family recipes and the stories behind them with people from all around the world.
