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!

They were picked up on time, the driver already told us a lot about Bogota and Colombia, then we met our guide at the cable car and drove with him and the driver to El Paraiso, where we met a local who took us for a tour through El Paraiso and told a lot about life there and then we got emplanadas that were delicious.
