What you'll do

During the Street Food Tour we visit a local market to sample local drinks and foods. On our way to the market we walk through the tradicional neighborhoods "San Antonio" and "San Cayetano". Next to that we visit some parks, like Parque Jovita and Loma de la Cruz, an artesian park. We discover amazing street art, some with interesting social messages. Around the beautiful market we learn about the local culture, meet locals and try at least 15 samples of food and drinks. We try tropical fruits like Chontaduro, typical drinks like Lulada, typical food like Ceviche Colombiano and a lot more. The tour includes all the food and drinks samples. The whole experience takes around 3 hours.

Our guides have lots of nice recommendations for restaurants, cafes, other tours and things to do in Santiago de Cali!
Other things to note
The food samples are included in the price. There are options for vegetarians.

Hello! My name is Niels Nieman, I am Dutch and have been living in Cali Colombia for the last years. I love traveling and in 2010 I traveled for a year through South America, my trip started in Argentina and I made my way up to Colombia. I fell in love with this country, especially with the city named Cali. Here I met a local girl that's now my wife and I settled down in Cali. One of my favorite places in the city became a local market, a great place to meet local people and eat great food. In 2015 after working in a hostel for 1,5 years, I started a tour operator named Callejeros Tours. The Street Food Tour is our main tour and visits the local market I had been coming to for yours, absorbing local knowledge from the real experts, the locals, who are part of the tour. In 2019 I finished a study to become an official guide in Colombia

Great tour and super value. I could not have done this by myself. Tasted and learned about a lot of different foods from Colombia. Knowledgeable guide a good group of people on the tour. Difficult to remember everything we tasted. Excellent and would highly recommend doing this even if you have lived in Colombia for a while.

Niels was sick ... so his friend Carlos led the tour. All previous positive comments therefore go to Carlos, who is Colombian from the coast. Very knowledgeable and very personable. I’m sure Niels is the expert, but I would certainly choose Carlos again. His knowledge of fruits alone was mind blowing! Thank you!

Niels tour was something I would never of done on my own. It was really great to learn about the street art and taste so many different types of Colombian foods. He did a really wonderful job. I am thankful for this unique experience.

Niels is een vrolijke vogel die gewoon zijn zelfgemaakte tour draait. We hebben ons vermaakt en een leuk stuk van Cali gezien. Je kan onderweg op verschillende plekken wat proeven (vaak delen met andere deelnemers). Tip zou zijn om wat meer af te stemmen op het gezelschap.

The food tour with Niels is fantastic, it really exceeded expectations! As you might imagine, we got to try a lot of different foods, from fruits to cheeses to stews to coffee. But Niels is also an expert about all things Cali, explaining the history of the city, pointing out great street art, and so on. And he’s a super friendly guy, to boot. Highly recommended!
