Can't miss authentic experience in Cartagena
Zachary_H
, Dec 2020
Angel Duran and his family were so warm and welcoming to our family (two adults one child). They took us shopping for fresh ingredients and then brought us to their home in an authentic (non-touristy) neighborhood. They strictly adhered to all covid protocols. We proceeded to cook with Angel, his wife, and their 21-year old son. The meal was phenomenal, we had a lot of fun, and we felt like we experienced true Colombian culture far more than through any normal tourist experience. This was one of the top travel experiences I've had and as close to "can't miss" as it gets.

Thanks a lot for visiting Cartagena, you made our cooking experience very special, and we love the fact of you keeping in mind the covid protocols. Please, dont forget to come back, nex time we might have a Literature tour with Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Your son was an angel in the tour. God bless you all. Happy new year. Sincerely Durán Angel

Can’t miss local experience

Angel Duran and his family were so kind. They welcomed us into their home and showed us a wonderful time. We spent half the day with the father, mother and 21 year old son. We cooked a delightful meal together and learned about the local neighborhood and the people. They were very Covid safe and careful. It was truly one of the better and my more memorable ravel experiences that I’ve ever had. I would consider this a “can’t mess” experience.

Wonderful Cooking Class!

We had a wonderful cooking class and Bazurto market tour with Maria, and Roger who helped out in the kitchen and provided translation support. We were picked up on time at our hotel on time by Roger and a driver and then made our way to the market, where we met up with Maria. The Bazurto market is authentic, with all the sights, sounds and smells you might imagine. Seeing all the fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and seafood - many of which you do not see in North America - is a real treat. We had a chance to sample a variety of fruit and we also bought some mangoes to take back to our hotel. We chose fish for the cooking class and made our way to one of the merchants that Maria deals with. We also picked up various vegetables and other fixings for the meal. We were not rushed wandering through the market and had plenty of time to take pictures and enjoy the ambiance. From the market we went to Maria's home where she holds the cooking classes. She has a comfortable, spotless home and we set about preparing our meal: fried fish, two different types of plantain, coconut rice, salad and fresh fruit juice. And what a meal it was! We had a wonderful time cooking, eating and talking about Cartagena and Colombia. Maria is a wonderful chef and host and we strongly recommend this cooking class.

Cooking Class in Cartagena

We had a great time on this tour and was a highlight of our stay in Cartagena. My wife and I were picked up at the hotel (by durandurantours) and we proceeded to Bazurto market where we helped purchase the food for our class. The market is bustling hive of activity and you get to see up close how the locals shop for their food. We then went back to the tour operators house where he and a chef helped us prepare the meal of stuffed fish with coconut rice, salad and fried plantains. After the meal was prepared, we all sat down and enjoyed the feast we had prepared.

I went on this tour with my husband and six year old daughter. We had a great time and my daughter loved helping and eating what she made. The cooking class was nicely organized and we got to help and learn with every step. You will meet and cook with a Colombian family in their home. The cooking space is laid out well for cooking classes. Definitely a fun and memorable experience to add to your trip to Cartagena.

I truly enjoyed Duran Duran and his wife Maria!!! They treated my family like their own!! We had a great time in the kitchen. We learned not only about the Colombian cuisine, but received a day in the life of what a family in this beautiful country goes through. One of the best tours I have been on!
