This tour was perfection!! I really thought that we'd go to maybe 4 or 5 places and have little tiny tastes of different foods, and then need to have lunch afterward. I was wrong. We went to 7 different locations, with very different foods at each place, and I was very full by the end of it! Our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, friendly, and fun. I highly recommend this food tour!

The Coffee farm experience was truly amazing. The family at the farm are very humble and truly knowledgeable about their process. Shoutout to our tour guide Nik and Campesina Karens who are truly amazing people and definitely made our experience much more gratifying.

La pasamos súper bien. Aprendimos bastante sobre el cultivo y proceso del café. Nuestra barista y el experto en el café a cargo de la cata súper amables con muchísimo conocimiento. El café delicioso. Súper buena la experiencia.

Yuly was our tour guide and she did a wonderful job showing us around. The snacks on the tour were from locally owned businesses. Tejo was a blast! One of our favorite tours we did in Bogota.

Great walking tour! The food alone was worth the price but add in learning the history of the area and it was fantastic. Gabriela was amazing!
