What an absolutely spectacular tour walking with Camila Gomez! She is lovely and smart and interested and absolutely a pleasure and a delight in every way. I found this tour with Camila so informative. She answered all my questions and it was just like walking and learning with an old friend. I would recommend this tour to everyone who would love to explore the beautiful city and especially to do it with the fantastic Camila!

At this point I would like to mention Cindy Bibiana. She was a great tour guide and provided us with a lot of background information about Bogota and Colombia. Her good English also contributed to the fact that it was an all-round successful, very nice day.

My experience has been very pleasant and interesting! Francisco as a guide has been the best choice I could make! Knowing and deepening knowledge of the history and culture of the city was an unforgettable experience!

Amazing experience, tour guide was well-versed in the subjects, timing was perfect and the locations were breath-taking. Much happier than expected!

I highly recommend this tour. Luis is a passionate and knowledgeable guide!
