Bogotá: Monserrate, La Candelaria and City Walking Tour

1. Bogotá: Monserrate, La Candelaria and City Walking Tour

Dive into Bogotá’s diversity by joining a city tour. Start by meeting your local guide at your hotel. Proceed first towards the viewpoints of Monserrate. Take the cable car up the mountain to enjoy the most breathtaking views of this city: the whole length of the valley from the best vantage point. After making your way back down La Candelaria, you will walk its cobblestoned streets, surrounded by colonial architecture to the spectacular Gold Museum. Learn about the region's ancestors through their remains of metalwork made before the arrival of the Spanish. Your guide will retell the transition from indigenous to Spanish colonization at the foundational square of Chorro de Quevedo. Taste some chicha, an ancestral corn-based fermented drink nearby, in addition to some juices and snacks. Visit Simón Bolívar Square and learn how politics and conflict relate to each other and its current challenges with a peace agreement already signed. Then, make your way to the Botero Museum and see some of the greatest works of Colombian modern painter, Fernando Botero. After a fulfilling day, finish by tasting a cup of Colombian coffee, at a place where local and friendly baristas will teach you the basics about one of Colombia's most famous exports. Choose for yourself the duration of the tour. It can be for 7 hours with Monserrate, Gold Museum and Botero Museum, or 5 hours with either Monserrate or museums.

Customer service from the company (Gran Colombia Tours) offering the tour was excellent. There was a mistake from GetYourGuide offering an option that was not possible to complete due to the start time. Gioser was really nice to contact me to explain to me the situation and possible solutions. Then Mario (the manager) also talked to me and provided me a solution. That shows how important are clients for them. Then the tour was really good. Gioser showed he is very knowledgeable and gave us some good tips and info about the city.

The tour guide (Lizeth Beltran) is by far the best tour guide that I have ever had. She is a walking encyclopedia. Her vast knowledge about the history of Colombia is phenomenal. Lizeth is very pleasant and great to be around with. Keep up the good work Lizeth.
