David did an awesome job taking us around Enviago to try local street food, fruit and juice stands and an amazing lunch at a typical Colombian restaurant. Best empanada I've ever had. You will not be disappointed, but you will walk away very full!

Had a really good day doing the food tour. Was great to be out of the tourist area and see where the locals eat and shop. The guide was very informative and spoke really good English! Thank you!
