Frequently Asked Questions
The neighborhood that we visited was a residential area. There was nothing to visit and there was nothing happening. It was pretty calm. We began by mango and after a shot or aguardiente and then fried dough. I got really tired after this strange mix and couldn't enjoy the rest of the walk tour as the coffee was only at the end of the trip to wake us up. I already went to the coffee tour so the short coffee story at the end was redundant and well less explained than the lengthly one we got, the coffee was not as good too.
We were supposed to eat 10 protein-based Colombian snacks. It was instead mango, aguardiente, fried dough, arepas, queso and finally chorizo. There was no local beer only aguardiente.
Because it's a food experience it would have been nice to be for lunch time or dinner time. It was in the middle so we we're not sure if we had to lunch before or not lunch. So we ended up wasting a lot of food. So we missed the point of a food tour.
Great time with Jen seeing the neighborhood of Laureles, Medellin and tasting the local street food and traditional cuisine of Antioquia!
A great day tasting all the different foods of Colombia. Perfect!
I had a great time walking the streets of " Nueva Florida" learning about and tasting the local foods of the neighborhood. Diane was friendly and knowledgeable, so glad I chose to go on this food tour!
