Juana was our tour guide for this free walking tour and she showed us very interesting sights and told us history and details from a local perspective. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Juana. She was so sweet and patient. Do this tour!

I joined both the walking tour with andres, and the food tour with Paula 3 weeks later. Both of them shared an interesting view of Colombia's past and present, they knew how to entertain the group and I liked the beer at the end!

Couldn’t recommend this highly enough. The food was great and Freddy gave us a load of good info. It’s also good to know that the money is going toward sustainable farmers and businesses. Great value for money.

The experience is real Colombian flavor. Cristian (the guide) is a good “pana” (Colombian slang for good friend). You will have fair enough food, so I recommend to leave space in stomach. For tourist that are not fluent Spanish speakers... don’t worry, Cristian speaks like...More
