    La Macarena
    Stop: 3 hours
    You'll be picked up at the hotel and head to Bogotá's bohemian and artistic neighborhood of La Macarena. La Macarena is famous for being one of the most important gastronomic spots in the city, where you can find little charming restaurants, serving food from all over the world. Here you are going to visit three of the best restaurants in the neighborhood, enjoying different types of cuisine, having Colombian traditional dishes in some places and dishes with local flavors and ingredients in others. At each restaurant you'll try a tasting dish, choosing from several options (vegetarian options available) and a beverage. In most of the restaurants you'll get the chance to try different dishes, so you can experience different flavors, while a culinary expert explains the dishes. Pair the food with your favorite beverage, both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages available. After finishing the gastronomic experience you'll be driven back to your hotel.

Wonderful introduction to food in Bogota
Feb 2020
This was an excellent choice for our first night in Bogota -- a family group of three personas de la tercera edad and one thirty-something. Our guide was Juliana and she was great. Pick up and delivery to our hotel (93 Luxury Suites and Residences) was flawless. Lots to eat and drink on this tour, so come hungry. Our only suggestion would be to end the tour in a restaurant with dessert options, rather than the two sample sandwiches. We were already pretty full by the time we got there, although the sandwiches were great.

La Macarena Gourmet Food Tour
I had a great time. The restaurants were were well chosen and varied and the food, New Colombian and Colombian fusion, was wonderful. Juliana, our guide, was great - knowledge about Colombian cuisine and Colombia in general. I highly recommend it.

Best gourmet tour in town
Dec 2019 • Couples
First time in Bogota city with the love of my life. Certainly, I was planning for the best gourmet tour one can give to celebrate love and to have excellent memories. Beware: the tour exceeds expectations. It was incredible how our tour guide took us through the best hidden secrets of this wonderful city showing us history and delightful dishes. However what separate this tour from the others is the great vibe of the tour guide and owner who went above and beyond call. Unforgettable and marvelous. Will do other tours with the same company for sure.

Amazing food

This tour was a great way to spend my first night in Bogota. Rafael was a great host and managed to get some delicious vegetarian food for me. The tour is a good mix of food, history and getting to walk around the Macarena area. Highly recommend this tour.

Unfortunately - We Can't Recommend this Tour
Dec 2019
My husband and I were excited to experience the Gourmet Food Tour. Our guide, Julianna was delightful and took us to three good restaurants.

What spoiled the entire evening for us was that food for our guide was not included. We shared our food and purchased beverages for her so that we would not have someone at our table just sitting there watching us eat. This made us extremely uncomfortable.

Our guide loves her job and never complained, but since the food tour gets a big discount from the various establishments, they should let their guides eat so that their guests don't feel uncomfortable.

Hi Brenda, I'm glad you enjoyed the restaurants, the food and the guide. First of all we don't get big discounts from the restaurants, what we get is special small portions so you can try different dishes at each place, but each menu is not cheap as these are not cheap restaurants and we include alcoholic beverages. Second, I have offered the guides to eat but they prefer for me to give them the money I would spend on the food and eat at home, and I can't ask the restaurants to give them food for free. I'm sorry this made you feel uncomfortable, but thanks for letting me know that this detail ruined the experience for you, I'll think of something to fix this. I really appreciate you comment and I hope you enjoyed your time in Bogotá.

Do not take this tour!
Dec 2019 • Couples
It was advertised as a gourmet tour, dress code suggested as smart casual. My wife and I went on the “gourmet” tour to celebrate my birthday. We should have been suspicious when our guide Juliana arrived not looking “smart”, in jeans and running shoes. The best initial impression was that she and the driver arrived on time in a nice clean car.
It went steeply downhill from there. The first restaurant was a second story walk-up with old mismatched folding chairs and odd decor. We were the only guests in the entire restaurant and dressed “smart casual”, felt totally out of place. Juliana explained that we could have one Mojito each and one appetizer of a choice of two and one main course of two. Juliana did not eat with us, she just sat there and watched us which made my wife very uncomfortable. The Mojito was not at all what I had in previous experiences, very sour, lacking any syrup and minimum amount of rum, if any. I don’t want to bother you with the food details but it was absolutely minimum quality.
After dinner, Juliana informed us that the next restaurant was 15 minutes on foot up hill. She called for a car since my wife is mobility impaired and we waited forever until a car showed up. With the terrible first visit, we informed her that we would like to be taken back to the hotel.

I don't even know where to begin, I was expecting this terrible review as Juliana told me what happened that day. First of all we let our guides dress the way the feel more comfortable, we need them to be nice, have a good English and be knowledgeable, things that Juliana has, I don't know why she wearing jeans and tennis shoes make a difference for you. The first restaurant has a Cuban - Caribbean style decoration, so the tables, chairs and what you call an odd decoration is part of the concept, they want the place to look like that. You said you were the only people in the restaurant, well you took the tour on a Monday when not many people go out to eat, we usually go out mainly from Thursday to Saturday, and besides there were protests going on in the city, so this also makes people stay home. On Friday and Saturday you can't get a table at that restaurant. The next restaurant is only 4 blocks away, is a nice walk that usually people want to do as you walk by the Bullfighting arena and nice colorful houses in the neighborhood, but if people can't or don't want to do the walk we call a driver, which she did, and the driver took just 10 minutes, not forever. When Juliana dropped you back at the hotel you didn't even say goodbye to her, that was very rude and you made her feel very bad. Next time you can say good bye to your guide when she drops you at your hotel, that's simple manners. Juliana told me all your conversation was how you were hating everything in Bogotá, saying that Monserrate was tacky and the Botanical gargen was underwhelming, so our tour was not going to be the exception.

Incredible evening with many delicious foods
We stopped at three restaurants in the Macarena district. At each we were given 2-4 options of 2-3 courses. Portions are not large but this is a good thing!! All of our items were delicious.
Juliana was our guide - we were two persons only. She was very friendly and we were happy to spend the evening with her in

Fantastic Culinary Experience Don't Miss Out
Oct 2019
Had a fantastic time on the La Macarena Gourmet Food Tour in Bogota! Our guide Juliana was fantastic!! She took us to three very different restaurants that sampled gourmet cuisine from different geographical cooking styles across Colombia. Our first stop featured Colombia Caribbean cuisine in a cozy restaurant with live music. Had a spicy pork with rice and beans dish that was very good along with a Mojito. I really loved the plantain stuffed empanada appetizer! The second stop featured traditional Colombian cuisine typical of central Colombia. Enjoyed the high-end restaurant great Ajiaco dish and shrimp cocktail. Food and service were fantastic!! We also enjoyed a traditional Agugaiente fruit cocktail beverage. Finally, the last stop was for traditional Colombian sandwich and local cerveza. What an amazing experience and great tour. Thanks Juliana!!
