An Introduction to ... Like A Local

“In your hometown, we’re sure you have your favorite places to eat, drink, celebrate, or relax. You probably know the best place to shop, the most beautiful spot to watch the sunset, and the most intimate of cafes to enjoy coffee with a friend. Now, imagine you could learn this kind of information about the places you travel before you even get there. With Michelin and Peter Greenberg’s “Like a Local” series, you’ll know where to go and what to do to ensure the best travel experience, exactly as if you were a local yourself.”

More than a century ago, the founders of our company published the first Michelin Guide as a way to promote driving and give motorists practical information about where to service and repair their cars, find quality accommodations and a good meal. It was a way to get more people driving and help them feel more confident doing it. This part of the business has grown into an entire travel and lifestyle category that now includes travel guides, maps, and of course the MICHELIN hotel & restaurant Guide which has become the global benchmark in gourmet dining.

  • Q: What is the best way to tour Cartagena without having to take a tour bus?
  • A: Taking a tour of this beautiful, but extremely vivacious, city is a must during your stop in Cartagena, Colombia. Touring the city in a horse-drawn carriage lets you discover the city in a more private setting (just you, the driver and a horse). This city is a sight to behold. Think deep blue houses, hot pink buildings, and yellow churches. You’ll feel right in the middle of a fantasy land. Another way to explore Cartagena is a more local version of a group tour in a colorfully painted chiva, an open-sided old school bus. With music blasting and a tour guide pointing out some of the most interesting aspect of the town, a chiva tour is a party all on its own – never mind the party going on within the city limits. Warning: This area will be very busy on weekends as it the party destination for many locals trying to get out of the capital of Colombia, Bogota.
