Lina showed us a in depth tour of the old town part of Bogota. She was extremely informative and knowledgeable. This became not only a food tour, but a history tour of how some things came to be in Bogota. Lina let us experience fruits and meals that we couldn't have tried back in the States, and took us to authentic, hole in the wall spots that we wouldn't have been able to find ourselves. We ran into a little issue during the tour (our fault), and Lina went above and beyond to stay with us and help us. Would highly recommend her!

We truly enjoyed the three hour ‘street food’ tour. Our guide, Sebastian, was friendly, knowledgeable and demonstrated that he wanted the tour to be an excellent experience for us. We visited seven locations - each one was unique and typical for Bogota. Most importantly, we felt we learned more about the history and culture of Colombia. Highly recommend the Street Food Tour.

This is the company I would choose for any of my future Bogota tours! Lina was so passionate about her company, and you could sense that from every email she sent me throughout the booking process.

We decided to combine two tours; City tour of Bogota, with a cooking and food tour of the city. We met our guide Adriana at our hotel, with our amazing driver Tofos! Both of them were extremely professional, friendly, and made the tour for us.

The tour started off with us making some empanadas at the local market. This was definitely one of the highlight of our day, as we truly immersed ourselves in the culture. I do wish we had more options of things to cook, as it was the only thing we learn how to cook that day. That being said, it was still so cool, and a unique way to understand the food culture of Bogota.

Our food tour took us throughout the old part of Bogota, where we saw some really cool architecture, and some really neat graffitis. We ate so many delicious dishes, and had the chance to consume some great local drinks including beer, coffee, and other spirits.

Overall, this was definitely the highlight of our 2 days in Bogota. Adriana and Lina treated us as if we were family, and made us feel right at home. Such an amazing day, and I wouldn't go with any other company. Mucho Gracias one thousand times over for an outstanding experience!

We had a great food tour with Lina in Bogota. It was with my husband and my 3 year old son. We managed to keep him entertained and he loved Lina as a guide. Thanks so much for showing us around Bogota and introducing us to the local cuisine.
