If you're thinking about doing this experience - do it! It's such a different side to see if Bogita from the north and the La Candelaria districts. Fransisco is a wealth of knowledge. We particularly enjoyed the dog who followed us all the way from the cable car stop at the top to the end of the tour, to be fed by Fransisco - his friend! 10/10 tour.
