Julian, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about Colombia, Bogota, and the food that originates from this region. We sampled Colombian coffee, coca tea, exotic fruits, and arepas. It was all very good, especially the coffee. We drank the coffee without sugar or milk and it was not bitter at all.

Cristian, our tour guide was extremely professional and friendly. He was on-time and waited for us at our hotel, as well as the pick-up driver (extremely helpful as well). He made sure to ask for any food allergies or food we do not like, to make the experience more enjoyable. He was extremely knowledgeable and had much historical history to share with us related to food & the culture. Felt safe every step of the way, and the food was delicious! We tasted many different foods. Come with an appetite!

Julian was fantastic and we booked this tour thinking we’d have a few coffees and that would be it...but we couldn’t have been more wrong.
Julian is a walking encyclopedia. His knowledge of not only Colombia but the world is incredible. The tour was basically us walking through the streets of La Candelaria, visiting different coffee shops, and him walking us through time mapping out how, what, where, when and why coffee came about.
We learned about the origins, the process, the history and where it stands today.
It was fantastic and we’d love to do another tour on our next trip.
Oh yeah, make sure to grab a bag of Jaguar coffee. As soon as we smelled the beans we were sold.

We did the Candelaria food tour with Julian. He is a very interesting conversationalist and it was a pleasure to spend the evening with him. The places we went were unique and we never would have found them on our own. It was enough food for dinner, plus coffee at a charming coffee shop. Highly recommended!
