What people are saying about Bogotá
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.
The walking tour was amazing. We really enjoyed learning about all the different foods from the different regions in Colombia. And they were really healthy portions. The foods were so delicious and as an added bonus our fantastic guide Yuli took us down streets with graffiti. It was almost two tours in one! I definitely recommend this tour if you want to learn about food history in Colombia. Ask for Yuli! She was the absolute best and was very personable. We would definitely do this tour again!
Expect the unexpected, its a great experience. Try to get a tour guide inside the mine. Probably 2.5 hour isn’t enough time to admire the whole beauty of the Salt Mine, so I recommend spend more that 3 hours Also I highly recommend having lunch at one of Zipaquira best Asados de Carne restaurant, La Tejedora And you can`t missed the visit to Museo Del Bachillerato on downtown Zipaquira, where the famous writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez spend part of his life attending to High School.
The coffee tour is a must do! This was our 2nd experience with Freddy and it was a great day. I loved going to a smaller organic farm vs a big manufacturer to see how they make coffee in the traditional way. It was a great scenic view to the town where the farm was and a great learning experience. Any tour from the true Colombian experience is a great option.
The tour was fantastic and I highly recommend it. It was so enjoyable seeing the neighborhood and learning about the history. Juan was an amazing tour guide. He communicated very well regarding the meeting place and kept us informed of the day’s agenda. If you were thinking of doing the tour, don’t think do it!
