What people are saying about Magdalena

I did an amazing food tour of Santa Marta with Álvaro! He is very knowledgeable and let me in on the secrets of his city, its culture, the different parts of the city and the highlights of the city. Together we tried the local snacks at the Gar kitchens, in fancy restaurants (great salad!) and in cafés. We ate egg specialties, drank local juices and sampled snacks at famous restaurants and on the beach in Santa Marta. I got a very good insight into the food and life culture of Colombia and I am totally enthusiastic! Many thanks Álvaro for this great experience!

You should not miss this tour. It is a tough journey, but it is well worth it. Make sure you have good running shoes (half high), a good backpack and possibly sticks for support. The guide Magely was very good as was the translator Sebastián.

Very fun and professional organization. They gave me a 15min window to be picked up and were there right on time. I learned so much from the tour guides, much more than any other coffee or chocolate tour I have done. It's highly recommended!

Alvaro is un great guide! It was nice to discover the city with him by walking and stop at different places to eat. I recommend starting your stay at Santa Marta with this tour to see the city and learn about the food.

Alvaro was an awesome tour guide. He knew all the ins and outs of the city and was an excellent guide. Would definitely recommend him to all that want to see the inner city of Santa Marta and try the great food.
