About The Author


  1. We took the street food tour and really liked the time we had. We got to see the other side of Playa that is not just 5th Avenue. I would recommend these tours to people.

  2. I took one of these tours and ate some great tacos! It was very informative tour and really gets you out of the tourist area.

  3. We just took on of these tours and it was great. Lots of local info and details of the area. We felt like locals after the tour.

    • This would be a good question to ask directly to the tour company because each tour can be a little different and different locations are used. Mexico is notorious for bad sidewalks and not very pedestrian friendly streets let alone wheelchairs. It is probably a 50.50 chance, so checking with the tours would be best.
