I hired the private tour and it is an excellent option for those who want to get to know the surroundings of Bogotá in a personalized way. My guide on duty, Jorge, was excellent in explaining the history and context of the places visited (Pueblo de Guatavita, Laguna de Guatavita, and Catedral de Sal de Zipaquirá), as well as the surroundings. Lunch in a typical restaurant was of all tastes, where you can get to know the local gastronomy. Finally, our driver was also an excellent company during the trip. During the return to Bogotá a bit of traffic congestion, but you do not notice it if you are enjoying the surroundings.

This walk is fantastic, when you are in Bogota you should do it without hesitation, it takes a day but it is worth it. Thanks to Angela our guide for her excellent work.
