Bogota Food Tour: A must for food lovers and coffee aficionados!
Start time: 11.30
Finish time: 15.30
You will meet your guide outside of the National Museum of Colombia in the centre of Bogota. This area is very safe and easily accessible. From here, you will begin your walking tour around the city. The walk is of moderate difficulty and there will be a few ups and downs but nothing you can’t handle! It goes without saying that there will be plenty of refreshment stops along the way.
The tours run with a maximum of eight guests so you will get a very personal look at Colombia’s food scene. During your tour, there will be 12+ tastings all over the city including exotic fruits, roasted suckling pig (also known as lechona) and firewater aguardiente cocktails!
You will visit a local market to learn about the history and ingredients behind the dishes that will be on the menu. At the market, you will also have the opportunity to join in for a quick game of tejo. This is Colombia’s national sport which involves throwing metal pucks at gunpowder. It has to be seen to be believed!
The tour will close with a coffee workshop in which you will be able to learn about the steeping process and the different beans used to make coffee. Of course, we know that any coffee workshop wouldn’t be complete without a few tastings too!
Undo that button on your jeans and get ready for the ultimate Colombian feast!
