What people are saying about Bogotá

This is a wonderful tour full of information and interesting experiences. Juanita, the guide, did a great job explaining the rich history of La Candelaria. She's super friendly and nice. Walking around La Candelaria with its beautiful architecture is must in Bogotá. The Cacao and Coffee Workshop was an amazing learning experience. It took place at Cacao and Coffee House, where the very best examples of Colombian cacao and coffee can be tasted. The barista experience was informative and fun. I highly recommend this tour!

Amazing! From meeting Alejandro and our driver Wilson, to having breakfast at a local cafe, to the hike. Alejandro is sooo smart and even knows a lot about plants. I love the whole experience. It's peaceful despite the trek. The dogs, the locals. A+++. It's a rural, lush side of Bogotá. I highly recommend it.

My trip was so amazing that I bonded and became friends with my guide Ivonne who is half Irish and half Colombian and I am Irish. We had an amazing day together, two friends hitting the city of Bogotá and I would highly recommend her.

All very good. The excellent guide and quality. In the farm, excellent reception and everything well organized to learn the entire cycle of coffee. Improve: driving is not kind to the passenger in the last row. You end up dizzy.

Great trip. My guide and driver were super nice. I enjoyed the day very much.
