The other reviews for this are largely true. The value of food purchased reflects nowhere near the cost of the tour. I’d say less than 10%. I think sadly the guide is probably not getting much more than than either. I did a cycle tour and this one and had the same guide. Kevin. He was good overall and informed me with things about the food. Not too much about Cartagena. The food is all freshly cooked / prepared. The clue is in the title though. This is all from street vendors. With no restaurant stops. That said. It all seemed good quality and was tasty. Empinadas, Arepas, shrimp, fruit and a local beer. Lasted about 2h30.

Worth every peso. The food was fantastic, which is why we signed up, but it was really our guide who made it so memorable. Part historian part local celebrity Eusebio is a joy to talk to and there isn’t a better person you could spend 2-3 hours with in Cartagena.

Cheo was so amazing! He made sure we had everything we needed. The food tour was incredible. The foods he exposed us to were so rich and we really took in the culture of a Colombia! The information he provided was also so informative.

Our tour guide Jaime was wonderful. He knows so much about Cartagena. We were able to learn how locals eat in Cartagena and their favourite foods. He accommodated dietary restrictions extremely well. Come to this street food tour hungry as you will get so many delicious foods to enjoy, experiencing what locals eat and enjoy.

Jaime was awesome! He was young so gave us great recommendations for places to see outside of the tour as well. Very funny guy. His english was impressive so we were able to understand everything. Flexible with what we wanted to see as well. Definitely over-priced for what we got food wise, but still happy we did it!

The neighborhoods we visited were varied, vibrant and interesting (Centro Historico, Getsemani, San Diego), though we did not learn much about their history from the guide. The food - arepas, fruit, juices, shrimp cocktail, empanadas - were street snacks. They were all made fresh and eaten immediately as they came off the carts. By and large, they were deep fried carbs stuffed with meat, cheese, and eggs. Not great for people with special dietary needs, but fun if you are good with the down home and eating quickly off of paper napkins 😊

Our original guide was replaced the day before our tour by a very kind and enthusiastic guide who was more interested in practicing his English(yes practicing) than actually being a guide. During the entire tour not more than $10 usd worth of food was purchased on our behalf. If the tour was this expensive surely the remainder of the cost should have gone to a fully bi lingual guide who was entertaining and informative. Sadly, not at all the case. This was truly a waste of time and money

We recently vacationed in Cartegena, Colombia South America, and while I wasn't sure what to expect, it exceeded my expectations. Our first day was spent doing the Street Food Tour of Cartagena with tour guide Eusebio. He was absolutely great! Not only did we taste exciting foods, but we learned so much of Cartegena's history during our walk. (This is a walking tour worth taking - especially if you have the right tour guide). I felt as if we had learned the city, the food, the culture, the people, the history and so much more (in the walled-city) on the first day. I recommend anyone traveling to Cartegena, start out with the walking street food tour (with Eusebio). It's unlike any other walking tour.

I loved this tour which I took on the first day of arriving. Eusebio, my guide, was wonderful. He escorted me to 7-8 local food vendors that I never would have discovered on my own and he gave a great historical overview of Cartagena. The food was fantastic as were the people we encountered. A great way to learn the culture and local foods. Thanks, Eusebio!

Take this tour and bring your appetite! Our guide was Eusebio and he was wonderful! He was so knowledgeable about his city and its food. Walking around with him feels like walking around with the mayor because everyone knows him. We didn't need dinner after this tour because there was so much food and it was all so filling -- patacon, queso, seafood coctel, fruit juice, empanadas and more! There is street food EVERYWHERE in Cartagena and this tour will demystify all off it.
