Hola!!

I’m Betsy Morales, a Oaxaqueña, someone who was born and raised in the beautiful city of Oaxaca!

Located in the heart of the city, is the world-renown Benito Juarez market, where my family has owned a family restaurant for over 20 years. I know the Oaxaca markets like the back of my hand, as I grew up in the markets.. surrounded by the flavors, smells, culture, traditions, and visitors from around the world!

It is an honor to share with you the traditions and cultures of my beloved Oaxaca.

I will share with you my knowledge of Oaxaca’s internationally recognized gastronomy.

In addition, the “Oaxaca Street Food Tour” supports the lifeblood of our community, generations of local business owners.

As we say in Oaxaca.. !Buen Prevecho!

Amazing experience that was well worth it! Not only did we try different hidden treasures, but we got to explore markets we probably wouldn't have found or easily navigated through ourselves. Betsy was a great host, excellent communicator, and made sure everyone was happy. The food was phenomenal, and we learned a ton along the way. I would recommend her to anyone visiting Oaxaca!

Wow! Absolutely the highlight of our trip. Betsy has put this tour together so thoughtfully - we were definitely full by the end of the 25 dishes, but not overly stuffed! We learned about the ingredients and traditions of the foods we sampled and also had a lot of fun. I have a few dietary restrictions that were not a problem at all. I highly recommend this tour!

this food tour is more than a food tour! Betsy explained a lot of things around the area, I landed the night before so after this tour I was full and also felt like saw most of the things the city has to offer.

A wonderful experience! Betsy is friendly, very knowledgeable, & deeply passionate about Oaxaca's street food & markets. the food was terrific, and I liked that she took us to several different markets -- including a small organic market. I highly recommend that you do this as soon as possible after you arrive (as I did), so you can eat at the markets again during your stay.

Hands down, the best tour we have ever done. We explored 3 markets and ate a ton of delicious food. Betsy was an excellent host - friendly, communicative, and knowledgeable. If you do one tour, choose this one.
