We will go to the local market early in the morning, in this market the best chefs in town go to buy the products for their restaurants. It is a special place where you can find almost anything, and experience a little of our culture. We will go deeper to the fruit and vegetable pavilions to some selected stands that we know have the best of the best in fruits, some of them are only found in Colombia, you can't miss this opportunity to try them.

    Had a great time navigating the huge produce market in Medellin with Daniel! We got to try lots of new types of fruit, and Daniel was very knowledgeable about Medellin, the fruit market, and the fruit themselves.

    Daniel was great! Highly personalized and friendly experience from pick up to drop off. Daniel was clearly knowledgeable and familiar with many of the vendors we visited, which made the experience of the market feel like walking into a home. Would recommend to anyone looking to trully experience the various fruits the country has to offer, with a guide whose English is superb and energy makes trying everything welcoming!

    Daniel was an excellent tour guide! We learned a lot about the various native fruits and how the markets work. He answered all of our questions and went beyond the listed experience. There is no better way to learn about local fruits and understand the markets!

    This was a great tour. Daniel speaks good English; although, we chose to do the tour in Spanish. Daniel is very friendly and knowledgeable. The market is very impressive, and the amount of fruit and treats you try during the tour is more than worth the price. We enjoyed it very much, and I highly recommend this tour for a quick but perfect activity to enjoy more Medellín has to offer.

    L’expérience a été une de mes préférés du voyage. L’hôte avait préparé pour nous une sélection de fruit typique dans différents stands à travers le marché. Nous nous arrêtions pour goûter ce qu’on voulait en plus. Il nous a expliqué leurs particularités, je n’aurais jamais eu l’occasion de découvrir un lieu pareil seule sa présence nous a permis de profiter de l’expérience gustative à 100%!
