Bring your appetite and an adventurous attitude. We arrived at the streets of the historic center of Cartagena de Indias to experience the food in the way that the Cartageneros do. Whether you are looking for an appetizer or something more substantial, a healthy appetizer or a sweet dessert, the streets of Cartagena offer everything! One of the best ways to get a glimpse of the daily life and culture of local people is to experience their culinary culture. The 2-hour tour will allow you to know the food customs, be closer and have a personal contact with the real Cartagena, while the street vendors fill our bellies with their delicacies and warm our hearts with their hospitality.

I LOVED this street food tour of Cartagena! Make sure you go on an EMPTY stomach, because I was SO full halfway through the tour that I couldn't fully enjoy the rest of the food, but I ate a snack before we started. Our guide was excellent in explaining all the traditions behind each "dish" we tried, and he even offered other options for people who didn't like seafood or some of the options offered. You also get a good sense of the history and location of everything in the city. I recommend doing this maybe on the 1st or 2nd day of your trip to get yourself oriented with where everything is in the city.

I can't say enough about how great this tour was/ Our host Cheo couldn't be lovelier and more knowledge able about Cartagena, the people, culture and food. This is a great tour for teens too. My two kids loved it. We were stuffed and tried so many yummy things. We also met another wonderful family on this tour. This is a great way to spend the sunset hours and eat dinner!

We had amazing local street food on this tour. Our tour guide, Cheo, spoke good English and explained some of the history of Cartagena. He made sure we had plenty to eat. We ended up skipping the next meal since we were so full after.

This was a very fun excursion! Our tour guide was Eusebio and he took us to the popular food vendors around the area. Definitely a good way to get to try the local food.

A friendly, knowledgeable guide led us around the old city. We sampled more items than we could count until we were all more than full. It was fun and we learned so much about Columbia food and history.

Had Daniel as a guide who was excellent. Very knowledgeable, did a walking tour as well as the food as he spoke of the influences on food by community, by area, by residents, how food styles changed from area to area. Food was terrific and it is such a treat to try street food without hesitation and to learn the impact of that specific food in the culture. Covered a great deal of area so got to see areas of the city we would not have ventured into. I love food tours and have done them in many countries and areas. A good way to understand the area in a different way that incorporates culture, history and the people. Highly recommended.

The tour itself was very good. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. The frustration was that we booked a private tour for our family - arrived to find a tour of 16 people. We booked private because we were traveling with a three-year-old. Upon voicing extreme displeasure, our group was split in half so we took the tour as a group of 8. The others in our group were wonderful and we enjoyed the them and the tour, but feel it was a but overpriced to not be a private tour.
