Me and my spouse celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in Mexico City on día de Los muertos. One of the best experiences was taking the deep Mexico tour of the local markets with Bondabu.
We were undecided if we wanted a private tour or to join a group. We ended up joining a group with two other couples. Everyone was great and I am glad we met other tourists.
Ricardo was our guide and Cammie was in training, both were so fun, smart, and funny. Ricardo really knows his history and both knew a lot about biology, my favorite topic. They showed us so much that we could have never seen without a local guide. We walked a lot in crowded markets but we have visited many local markets around the world and love to see how others live. It was fascinating and so enjoyable.
Not to mention the incredible food we tried! We indulged in authentic mole, perfectly prepared river shrimp, crunchy grasshoppers, and delicate tiny fish. Each dish was a symphony of flavors, a true celebration of Mexican cuisine.
And let's not forget about Ricardo's suggestion to try pulque, a traditional Mexican alcoholic beverage crafted from the fresh sap of Agave plants. I had never tried it before, and thanks to Ricardo's dedication, I had the chance to savor this unique treat. It was a delightful addition to an already unforgettable day.
We truly relished every moment of our tour. Bondabu and their exceptional team made our anniversary celebration an experience we will cherish forever!
