Hola

I am María, a local who loves Cartagena. After visiting 10 countries and living in USA for 6 months I realized how wonderful is my culture so I quit my job ( Quality Consultant for healthcare) to design local experiences for visitors to enjoy my city. I have given literally all my heart, love and effort into this project to give the MOST unique experiences you can have here. With the Caribbean culture in my blood, I am a friendly, fun, and outgoing person, willing to share a piece of my culture with each traveler, while helping my community at the same time.
I will be happy to show you MY CARTAGENA, and share a laugh together. You will receive a FREE BIG HUG and by the end of our time together, you will become my new local friend

I really enjoyed this tour because Maria had great stories about the history of all the foods we sampled, how they varied from region to region, and interesting facts about Cartagena food culture. I think food tours are best when you learn something about why people eat what they eat or why a food is important culturally, not just how the food tastes, so this was right up my alley. of course, everything was delicious, and I left stuffed. Maria is also a lot of fun! this tour is worth doing.

Maria was very helpful. She was very personable and made our experience wonderful. The food was delicious and the history of the food items was super interesting. She even gave us extra information about where else to eat and what else to do while in Cartagena. We would definitely recommend her and her tour to anyone.

An excellent and really fun tour with the only problem that you eat too much great food which is a plus in the end. ;) Highly recommended.

Maria was a great host! She provided a wealth of knowledge for me and my group about the walled city as well as Cartagena as a whole. The foods she introduced us to were delicious and I would definitely eat anything Maria would recommend. I would highly suggest this experience to anyone wanting a beautiful evening in the city!

This is an excellent food tour! You eat while you walk it off! You can try a variety of food Cartagena has to offer and learn about the history! Furthermore, Liz is an awesome host/guide! She is friendly, personable, smart, and knowledgeable about the food, owners/creators, and history! I thoroughly enjoyed her company and this tour!

We went on our tour with Liz who was an excellent guide! She told us lots of interesting history about Cartagena beyond the details of food, so we were learning about the culture from many angles. Not to mention the food was very delicious! You definitely want to come hungry as there are many stops and lots to eat. We would happily take a tour with Liz again!
