Bogota food tour

Join one of Colombia's leading food historians in Bogota to get to the bottom of what Colombian cuisine is all about.

Kicking off at a bustling local market as lunch hour starts, you will dive into the best ajiaco in the city. Later you will dig into the magical world of lechona (that’s roasted suckling pig to me and you) as well as more than eight more dishes as snacks as you wander from the modern downtown area to the historic old city.

Stop en route for an explosive game of tejo - Colombia's national sport which involves hurling metal pucks and packets of gunpower. Then sign off with an immersive coffee workshop tasting several different beans, watch different steeping techniques and understand why the country grows, roasts and brews some of the best cups of joe on Earth. Get ready for Bogota's best food tour.

Our group tours are open to those 18+ due to the tejo hall. If you have little ones, please contact us to book a private tour.

Why this tour is awesome

We’ll be honest. To the outsider, Colombia’s culinary prowess isn’t immediately obvious. But scratch its underbelly a little deeper, and you’ll find some of the most complex fare in South America.

On this small-group tour limited to 8 exclusive guests, you'll get to grips with the capital's food scene with tastings all over the city. Plus, you'll visit a local market to learn about ingredients, stop off for a quick game of tejo and learn about Colombia's best coffee beans while being led by one of Colombia's leading authorities on the countries food history.
