What people are saying about Bogotá

Excellent tour and experience! Would highly recommend. We visited the town of Zipaquira which was beautiful then went to the Salt Cathedral which was an amazing experience. Booking in advance was helpful as our guide helped us get audio guides, our tickets and told us where to go. We had lunch at a wonderful authentic restaurant afterwards! It was a great cultural experience.

Todo estuvo en orden, el día anterior al viaje, me contactaron por WhatsApp con la hora de la recogida, y el día del viaje, el conductor estuvo a tiempo y me recogió en el lugar acordado. El viaje fue acorde al paquete adquirido. Los recomiendo y los utilizaría nuevamente.

Great value, super comfy bus and guide spoke Spanish and English. Had two hours at the Salt Cathedral, half with tour and half you could wander around. Great 3D video at the end to watch. Great place to go for lunch (not included in price) and chat with fellow travellers.

La experiencia fue excelente dentro de la mina. La Guia fue excelente y divertida la excursión. La logística en término de punto de encuentro no fue clara y el conductor desagradable excellent trip..the cathedral is just amazing..transport was faultless..and they kindly dropped me back near my hotel..a perfect trip..
