Full description
Sometimes traveling forces you to spend boring downtime at airports. But why waste hours sitting uncomfortably just waiting when you can invest that layover time in getting to know the amazing city of Bogotá. For this experience, you will be picked up from the airport, and will be later brought back in time for your flight.

You'll start off traversing the famous Candelaria. There you’ll walk through cobble stone streets surrounded by colonial architecture, baroque churches, and art deco houses. It’s a place brimming with history and packed with stories of the recent armed conflict and drug trade. You’ll top it off with a warm cup of coca-leaf tea to get you going.

Following that, visit the amazing Gold Museum, where you can wander at iconic and amazing gold artifacts from all around Colombia. That will be followed by the Botero Museum, whose peculiar art style is bound to catch your eye.

The final destination will be Monserrate, the great hill that overlooks Bogotá. You'll take a cable-car up the mountain and visit the cathedral and artisanal market. From there you can enjoy the amazing views and learn about the cultural significance of the surrounding hills, before you later head back to the busy streets being taken back to the airport.
