What people are saying about Cundinamarca

The trip was amazing. We signed up for a group tour and received a private tour with Jhon Fredy, who was an excellent guide, a knowledgeable local, great fun personality. The guide and driver were very friendly and generous. Nemecon salt tour was smaller and more personable than the Zipaquira salt mine tour, and was in a very cute little town. Guatavita was beautiful and the history of the indigenous people is rich. Jhon Fredy was a great translator. We really recommend this intimate and personable tour.
