Full description
The day begins with pickup from your hotel and heads out for a full-day exploration of Bogota. This tour has been perfectly designed to showcase the very best of Bogota, as well as providing an insight into its unique culture, lifestyle, and history. Start the tour with a wander along the cobblestone streets of La Candelaria which is surrounded by colonial architecture, Baroque churches, and Art Deco houses. As you admire the different architectural styles, learn about Bogota’s colonial history and how this impacted the city.

Next, visit and marvel at a number of important street artworks, which portray the truth behind the recent armed conflict in Bogota and the city’s troubles with the drugs trade. Afterwards, head to the spectacular Gold Museum where you can see a selection of impressive jewelry from the country’s indigenous past.

Later, check out the Botero Museum, which houses one of Latin America's most important international art collections. Once you've worked up a bit of an appetite, enjoy a tasting session of Chica, a local alcoholic beverage, as well as a selection of regional juices. Finally, ride the city’s cable car up to Monserrate and learn about the relationship between Bogota and its surrounding hills while you soak up the view.

Our guide was Andres. A wonderful and knowledgeable guide. He picked us up on time and explained everything in detail and with a lot of patience. The tour itself was excellent and we covered just about everytning in Bogota. The best parts were the Botero and gold museums as well walk around bolivar square and Candelaria area of old bogota. Monserrate has good views of bogota from the top but is otherwise overrated. One advice for people with mobility issues. The tour involves a fair bit of walking and some steps and walking uphill.

Well. Not really special, if you can speak Spanish, you could arrange your own. I travel alone, they almost doubled my price. I checked this company, most trips, when you book, the price will go up A LOT!
