It was okay.

We enjoyed our 2 hour food tour with Ingrid. She spoke English well and explained how the foods were made. About 6 stops including cerviche, arepas, empanadas, tropical fruit drinks, rum and coffee tasting. With an added stop to see a sloth and some monkeys in a local park. I would highly recommend this tour.

Honestly, it was not great. The different stops did have some local food, but the guide was underprepared at best.

La verdad como tour gastronómico le faltó muchísimo, nuestra guía Ingrid por el solo hecho de ser colombianos no nos daba la misma atención que a los otros turistas, solo nos llevo por ciertos lugares y no daba ninguna explicación más allá de la obvia sobre la comida, como es posible que si se le pregunta por una bandeja paisa solo diga que te puede matar y donde queda la antropología de la comida o por lo menos la razón de ser de dicho plato , la verdad quedaos muy decepcionados por la forma en la que se dio el tour y no lo recomendaría esperamos puedan mejorar en ese aspecto, o por lo menos ella como guía.

Response from Beyond:

Natalia recibe un saludo de Beyond Colombia Cartagena, lamentamos que tu experiencia en la ciudad de Cartagena no haya sido la mejor. El Free Food Tour se centra en los sabores de la costa caribe, los de las otras regiones se mencionan para indicar que cada región tiene sus especialidades. Sus comentarios y recomendaciones son muy importantes para nosotros, tomaremos los correctivos con el propósito de ser cada día mejores, permitiéndonos crecer. Gracias

Manuel was very knowledgable, his English was great. We got to try an array of typical Colombian cuisine, which only totalled around $5 pp. There was absolutely no pressure to try anything, but everything we tried (from ceviche to passion fruit juice) was delicious. 5 stars!
