We had a great time. The food was great. We arrived an hour late and they waited for us. Fortunately the other couple was late also. The history lessons we fascinating while heart breaking. Go local! Go taste the real food of Colombia. Highly recommend. We were stuffed at the end.

Exploring The Taste of Colombia

Must do experience! Andrea (our guide) was an exceptional guide because she was real with us about the situation in Colombia. She took us solely to small businesses to get an authentic taste of different regions of Colombian food. I truly appreciated this because I would have not visited many of the locations had it been for her. Now, the food was tasty from the fresh fruits to the iconic soup we ended the night with. I enjoyed the food so much, that I returned to some establishments from the tour for more food. If you are having reservations about booking this tour, know that it is worth every penny because it supports small businesses and will make your day super fun.

Awesome tour, great food and memories. Tour guide was so great! I just recommend that they plan the restaurants to have vegan options, on this tour description it said there would be vegan and vegetarian options but not all stops had them

First and foremost— ask for Alejandro he was our tour guide. He kept us laughing he made sure everybody was included in the talks the festivities and never made people feel like they were just somebody else taking a tour. I was renting an Airbnb near by (10mins away) so I just took a motorbike taxi via the”picap” app to the meeting point. Unfortunately people were a little late getting to the pick up so we had to wait a little. Please me mindful there are other people on this tour so arrive on time. The trip covers all the meals/ fruits you will be tasting. CARRY CASH ON HAND FOR ANY OTHER EXTRAS YOU WOULD LIKE AND FOR TIP!!! I loved the different food / the walking through the calendaria and the upbeat and bright personality of my tour guide Tip for travelers: the cranky hostel is one of the best hotel/ hostel in bogota and it’s literally in the middle of everything if you can book a room there

To know one’s culture is to taste their food.

One of the best way to experience a new culture is through food. I love seeing what the locals eat and the history and the story behind the dishes. Plus, you get to meet new friends, get acquainted with the neighborhoods and see the beautiful murals and art. Our guide, Andrea was very knowledgeable and full of energy. I highly recommend this tour. It’s super affordable too. Great value for the money.

I wish we tried more coca. The patacones were fairly low quality but the soup at the end was excellent. I'm glad we tried the rodent from the jungle.

Fun Bogota Food Adventure

Andrea was a great guide who provided lots of context to the foods we were trying. The history, culture and knowledge provided with each dish made it fun. We did attend during a busy holiday weekend which really slowed the process. Andrea did a good job of filling the wait time with stories about the city or place we were visiting.
