What you'll do

** This is an original experience of Foodies, the most awarded food tours in Colombia. ** Gabriel García Marquez was a foodie, his books are a tribute to the Colombian Caribbean Cuisine and we want you taste it while we remember delicious passages of "Love in the Time of Cholera", "One Hundred Years of Solitude", "Of Love and Other Demons", among other works. Our journey to the magical realism starts at the iconic Clock Tower, a key place in García Marquez geography. During the morning, we'll discover the food and scenarios that inspired his books walking 9 of his must-see places in Cartagena. We'll taste 8 stops with some of the snacks or drinks that Gabo served his characters meanwhile we tell you the history behind our traditional cuisine; We'll stroll by emblematic spots in the old town like Plaza de los Coches, Plaza de la Aduana, Plaza de Bolivar and Plaza de la Proclamación where Gabo's cultural center will open soon.

This experience is a blend of mouth-watering cuisine and wonderful local people, get ready to share your stories and be part of the conversation. *.
