Exotic fruits tour - Real City Tours Medellin



Icon description - Real City Tours Medellin

In this tour we will guide you through the labyrinth of one of Medellín’s main indoor markets. We will stop at different fruit stalls to taste over 10 exotic fruits, most of which you are likely to never have seen before (we’re not talking mangos and pineapples!).


We will introduce you to some of the vendors, and explain the benefits of each fruit as well as how to recognize ripeness/quality. At the end, there will be a chance to sit down at Don Rigo’s “smoothie bar”, where you can enjoy a fresh fruit juice/smoothie. Join us on this tasty adventure and make sure to come hungry!
