My first tour in Bogotá was an amazing experience. I especially have to thank Mónica and Andrea for teaching me some of the history of Bogotá and the projects of the Comuna neighborhoods. There’s plenty of beautiful views, people, and art to see. I like to be amongst the people and see the heart of a city, and this tour does that.

The trip to El paraíso was great! You could catch a glimpse of life in this district and learn a lot of exciting things. I was accompanied by two great guides, Francisco and Monica. We had interesting conversations with them. So I was able to learn more about Colombia and the local culture.
