Enjoy an unforgettable morning in Bogota’s Old Town and try some of Colombia’s traditional drinks and snacks. Colombia’s gastronomy is a mix of the local pre-hispanic tradition, the Spanish, and the African. On our Free Food Tour of Bogota you will discover a cuisine which everything it lacks in fame it makes up in taste!

Soak in the ambience of La Aldea, an alternative cultural center in which you’ll be able to try tropical fruits unique to Colombia and even make your own juice. We will take you to the Museum of Chicha where you’ll taste the famous indigenous beverage made of corn, water and sugar cane. Chicha nearly disappeared in the 50’s due to the irruption of beer, but is now again as popular as ever.

Enjoy a typical Colombian empanada, filled with potatoes, corn, and meat; however, there will be plenty to choose from. Try traditional Colombian cheese bread with a homegrown coffee. Eat delicious arepas, Colombia’s signature dish whose origin is curiously disputed by Colombia and neighboring Venezuela. 

So join our Food Tour Bogota and enjoy a relaxing evening amongst travelers as you eat and drink the best this wonderful city has to offer!

We really recommend to go on this tour!

5/5 stars

We had a really nice experience with this because our guide 'Mauricio' was speaking very good English and he was also very helpful, energetic and full of passion about his country and the city Bogota. He also makes you feel safe and he really gave us a very good impression about the typical types of Colombian food and drinks. We really recommend to go on this tour! You will not regret it!

We had a very nice evening with extremely good food.

5/5 stars

Andreia is the best! She is a very sweet and kind guide who knows all about Bogotá and tells her about her experience with the culture and food of Colombia compared to Brazil (where she is from). We had a very nice evening with extremely good food. We were so full afterwards! What we also liked is that all the places Andreia took us felt authentic and not touristic. We got to know Bogotá in the best way. Last but not least we felt very exclusive because we were just with the three of us.
