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!

    I give Betsy and this tour my highest recommendation. Oaxaca Is a region known for its amazing food, and Betsy opened up whole new world of tastes and food experience. Betsy is the real deal. She was born in Oaxaca, and her family has run a restaurant located in one of the markets for the last quarter century. I recommend that you take this tour as soon as you arrive in Oaxaca so that you can become grounded in all types of local food. You may never eat in a restaurant again.

    Really happy that we did this tour. It's a great way to get to know Oaxaca and it's cuisine. Everything we had was delicious! And the tour itself was an experience. We could've never found the places on our own.

    Betsy was amazing! We looooved all the spots that we hit because a majority were some that were in typical locals markets where we likely couldn’t navigate ourselves. Betsy shared all the gems and insights and made us feel so connected to Oaxaca culture. Thank you!

    We had a fantastic morning and afternoon with Betsy! She's a knowledgeable and personable guide with a wealth of insight. We loved every bite we had and felt we truly got to experience food we would not have tried on our own. Come prepared to eat!

    A must-try local tour! Betsy is a sweet & wonderful tour guide and brought us to places which only locals would know. She gave us her personal recommendations which I value and always shared / explained to us how everything was made & the history. It was truly an enjoyable Oaxaca experience!
