    Natalie was such a great guide, so personable, bright and sweet, knowledgeable and doing great with her English (I should know Spanish). Showed us around the La Candelaria area which was really beautiful, bright and interesting. Loved learning more about Bogota and Colombia. Can’t wait to return and see more of the city and country.

    I went today with my boyfriend and we thought it was a super experience! The attention of the guide (Jose) could not be better, he worried all the time that we understood what he was telling us. The tastings, the tour, the information, all super. I highly recommend the tour and the company, apart from the fact that if you already paid when booking through the page, they do not ask you for anything additional.

    Luis was a great guide. He told a bit about the history of Bogota which was very interesting. He also found a great amount of history and entertainment, so that it never got boring. His English was great and very understandable. He always answered all questions, even those not related to the tour. You felt comfortable and safe with him. We definitely recommend the tour.
