What people are saying about Bogotá

an interesting trip, only the transportation for us was very uncomfortable because we were in the back of the Van and all the way we were bouncing, being very annoying, I consider those seats should not be occupied on long trips

Very nice tour, a wonder to know, I just wish the tour had more hours to go to Zipaquirá and in the salt cathedral 2 hours is very little

They brought me to the 93 park and everything was excellent I recommend the tour

Was a nice walking tour. Gained some new knowledge about Colombian cuisine

Súper cómodo el viaje. Se disfruto mucho el paseo.
