This experience was necessary, eye opening, and a good time. Could not do it without a guide and he was wonderful. Loved learning to dance. Enjoyed the interactions with locals. It was interesting to see how a lot of people live daily in the market. Bonus- I adore Anthony Bourdain and we went to Cecelia’s, where he visited in 2008.

This was such a great experience. We never would have been able to navigate the market on our own and loved having lunch at Cecelia's. Our guide Jesus was amazing. There was also another guy assisting Jesus which made the tour run really smoothly. This is a great cultural experience and would definitely recommend.

Jesus was my guide and he was a really fun and informative guide. It's my second time going to Bazurto market but this experience was so much different. You can tell that Jesus is passionate about this market and the people and he's built connections with so many people. We were introduced to many people who make the market what it is. If you want to see the real Cartagena, go to Bazurto market. If you want to get real food, go to Bazurto market.

Jesus is super attentive and knows his way inside and around the market. The dance lesson mixed in with a food tour was more culturally thoughtful than other food tours I’ve been on. It’s also one of the only not early mornings tours— which focuses on life in the market along with the produce sourced.

This was my favorite experience of our trip to Cartagena! We got to try a lot of delicious food and also learned about non food vendors in the market too. Jesus was so friendly and funny. Absolutely recommend this tour!

Really interesting experience! We learned a lot about the history of the market, tried some of the famed fruits of Colombia, and had fun dancing champeta. Jesus was a wonderful, highly personable guide.
