Taste your way to the Medellin skyline on a 4-hour, private food tour of the scenic Las Palmas drive and the countryside that includes tastings of local paisa cuisine, and round-trip transport from your Medellin hotel. This culinary tour of the hills surrounding Medellin accommodates your group of up to four people, and offers a local, foodie perspective on Medellin flavors and culture.
Start with 12:30pm or 6pm pickup at your hotel in Medellin, where you’ll meet a food-loving tour guide for the trip up Las Palmas, a scenic road that winds all the way to the top of the hills around the city, but prior to embarking on our journey, guests will get a taste of the best single origin coffee in Medellin with a touch of art at the Avoeden Cafe in El Poblado. The coffee here is insanely delicious, a perfect way to gear up for the road ahead.
Travel by private, air-conditioned vehicle, and enjoy the flexibility that this private tour offers, stopping as often as you’d like to photograph the city from above. Upon reaching the summit of the steep hills, continue through the rippling landscape that surrounds Medellin on all sides, visiting a series of places to learn about local dishes, and taste authentic paisa cuisine. Take advantage of your time with a knowledgeable, local guide to chat in between stops, learning about paisa culture, life in Medellin, and Colombian gastronomy.
This tour is a moving feast, and it’s worth bringing an appetite, as the day’s tastings combine to be a hearty lunch. After four hours of sightseeing, snacks, and culinary cultural immersion, return to the city, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel at 3pm.
