What you'll do

We Cartageneros love street food and on this tour I will take you to taste the most daily flavours of the city. We will wait for you in the Plaza de San Diego, where we will start our historical - cultural - gastronomic tour. We will visit the squares and photogenic streets of the city and different food stalls, where we will have the opportunity to taste the coastal culture. In this 3-hour tour we will pass through 7 different stalls, where we will taste AREPA DE HUEVO freshly taken from the cauldron, we will take seasonal fruit juices, we will sweeten the morning with typical sweets and much more. Take into account that the stops will be mixed and there will be no order between salt and candy. Be part of this experience that will take you even closer to the daily living of Cartageneros where you can learn more about our customs and the mixes in the kitchen. You will be able to interact with all the cartageneros and take a piece of Cartagena with you.

Join me in this experience, which will take you even closer to the culture and gastronomy of Cartagena. I am Luisa, an industrial designer and 4 years ago I discovered my passion for tourism and since then I am a local guide in the city of Cartagena. I will be showing you my favorite places, where we can taste the magic of street food. My main idea is that you get to know more thoroughly how is the life of the Cartageneros day to day and to support the work of many of them. Join this trip!

Great tour with a knowledgeable local! Got to try unique foods and juices we would not have otherwise tried. Definitely recommend doing on one of your first days here.

Great tour. Luisa took us to mostly local places. This really gavevthe tour a level of authenticity that we'd never experienced on a food tour before.

Although the tour was late to start we had a fun time walking the streets in the walled city of Cartagena. Luisa was unable to make the tour so we were shown around by Inri and it ended up being a private tour as it was just my friend and I. Inri shared a lot of information about the city and its history and was able to answer all our questions. The food part of the tour didn’t kick off until the last 45 minutes of our walk so it was more like a guided historical tour followed by a lunch comprised of several local snacks. The snacks we tried were delicious and a mix of sweet, savoury and tart!

The tour was great! Luisa is a local and gives great stories behind the vendors and different parts of the city that you wouldn’t get to know just walking on your own. My favorites were the arepas con huevos and homemade chorizo🤤. She guided us through traditional street foods found in the walled city, and beyond. I had a great time with the whole group, and made some friends along the way! A fun way to kick off your trip in Cartagena and spend an afternoon exploring.

The tour was the highlight of Cartagena for us. Luisa took us to lots of different delicious vendors and shared with us stories of the city, the food and the people who create it. Luisa is super friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we had a blast and felt welcome in her city.

Luisa couldn’t make it so our tour guide was Inri, who was wonderful! The tour was a balance of history and street food. We tried many different snacks and saw so many parts of the city. Inri personalized the tour and made sure all the food was vegetarian for us. I highly recommend!
