Bogota

What better way to get to know Colombia’s delights in half a day than through it’s gastronomic tour? We know you’re busy, but this doesn’t mean you have to keep yourself from discovering the richness of a country like ours. In the Bogota Food Tour we will take you to several locations, each with a different meaning and a different taste, in order to give you a glimpse of the diversity of Colombia and the manners and lifestyle of locals.

To start the tour and the day off in the best of ways, you will be taken to enjoy the most important meal of the day, breakfast, at a traditional bakery. Pastelería Florida is an artisan bakery that’s been on the market for 78 years. Here you will be able to taste a traditional aguapanela and other traditional meals that are common in Colombia, especially in the Andean region.

After a delicious breakfast, walk through the center of the capital into the Septimazo, commonly known as a place for fun. The Septimazo has become a street fair where you can find people in stands selling all types of things, different street singers, artists and a lot more. Here we will walk through the streets that have witnessed the history and daily life of the majority of the citizens in the capital, and stop at a variety of food stalls to amaze your palate.

Afterwards, you will be taken to the Paloquemado market, one of the biggest and oldest food markets in Bogota. Here you can find anything you can think of; it gathers the richness of Colombian agriculture in one place, from the traditional to the exotic. This place isn’t limited to fruits and vegetables; you can also find meat, fish, herbs, handcrafted goods, and an amazing beautiful flower market. It might not be the typical touristic destination, but we are sure you will love its vibrant and colorful atmosphere.

We’ve all heard the way to a man's heart is through his stomach and in this opportunity Bogota will definitely make accountable to that saying. You’ll definitely end up wanting more of Colombia.

    Muy buen servicio, súper recomendable

    Sin duda mi experiencia fue más que increíble. Empezando con los guías Andrés: es uno de los mejores guías que he conocido en diferentes tours es alegre, simpático, extrovertido conoce mucho siempre tiene una respuesta a todas las pr...eguntas. Viajeros si toman un tour con esta increíble empresa pregunten por el tendrán un tour único. Paula: muy chevere como dicen por aquí simpática excelente platica con ella sentía que estaba haciendo el tour con ella. Alberto: un conductor responsable muy alegre convivi poco con el pero es genial Los 3 se complementan muy bien. Tome un tour gastronómico al cual me llevaron primero al mercado del palo quemao conocí y disfrute varias frutas típicas de Colombia deliciosas a excepción de una que en mi gusto particular muy ácida. Me llevaron aún lugar donde vendían unas arepas deliciosas. Fuimos a una cafetería donde sirven un café riquísimo la explicación del proceso de el café por parte de Andrés fue muy divertida y entendible En el camino rumbo a una de las cafeterías con mucha historia en Bogotá vimos los murales emblemáticos de la ciudad. En la cafetería el tamal recomendación de paula, buenísimo !!!! Si bien en México tenemos tamales los de aquí son únicos y deliciosos. La ventaja de esta empresa es que vas a tu ritmo claro cuando el día y me imagino la demanda lo permita vas a tu ritmo no tienes que esperar a nadie es prácticamente un tour privado. Siento que todo está grata experiencia se logró gracias al staff, sentía que estaba de paseo con amigos eso es algo que muy pocas empresas tienen. Sin duda me quedaron ganas de regresar a Colombia y definitivamente comprar más tours con ellos. Gracias por hacer de mi último día en Bogotá único y por hacerme pasar un momento ameno y maravilloso. Gracias. Read full review

    Sampling the local fruits

    Did the Bogota's Gastronomic Wonders' tour on March 26th with some Aussie friends. Our guide was Alejandro, an affable chap. The Paloquemado Market was the highlight. The extent of flowers outside was a colourful surprise [Colombia is the w...orld's second largest flower exporter]. Inside was a tasting experience with a focus on local fruits like guanabana and maracuya. It was a Saturday so the place was full of shoppers, adding to the atmosphere. Driving through some working class neighbourhoods to appreciate some of the graffiti was good. A sample of chichi, fermented corn syrup, at trip's end was very much an acquired taste. The stop at Pasteleria Florida, a Bogota tradition, was okay, reflecting a venue for middle class locals. Alejandro was a wealth of information about his city and country, making for a very good overall experience. Read full review

    Bogota Food & Market Tour

    The tour that we did through the food and flower market was one of the highlights of my three weeks in Colombia. Our guide Alejandro was fantastic, he gave us a great insight into Colombian culture and was able to answer all our questions. ...It was great value for me money and having a tamale and hot chocolate at one of Colombia's old coffee houses was a wonderful way to finish the tour. I cant recommend the tour or Alejandro enough. Read full review

    Excellent tours (Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral, Day tour to Villa de Leyva, Bogota Grand City Tour & Gastronomic Wonder)

    "We traveled from Hong Kong to Bogota in end March 2016. We booked airport transfer in & out, Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral, Day tour to Villa de Leyva, Bogota Grand City Tour & Bogota Gastronomic Wonder from Destino Bogota. Our private guid...e Alejandro was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable, and our driver was very punctual and helpful. For example, it was a public holiday on our last day in Bogota, and we found that the post offices were closed. At that moment, we worried that we could not send the postcards back to Hong Kong. Luckily, our driver had got some stamps in his bag; and our guide helped us to find the mailbox. All of the tours were well-organised. We were very happy that we had chosen this company during our time in Bogota. I would highly recommend this company!" Read full review

    Had a Wonderful Tour

    Took the Gastronomic half-day Tour with Destino Bogota, and must say it went beyond my expectations ! My Guide Juan Federico Rojas is a chef, so needless to say that he knows his stuff -- we had typical snacks, drinks, and many different Co...lombian Fruits !! Yum Yum, and Love Love! In my experience, It is rare to have a guide of Juan Fed's caliber -- it was a privilege. A special thanks to the driver Alberto too. Overall, I would recommend using this company. Read full review
