Excellent service! I booked last minute (the night before) and everything was managed brilliantly. José was an awesome guide - extremely friendly, knowledgable and flexible to my interests. It was Good Friday, so the Monserrate would have been tricky to navigate alone, but José did so with ease and ensured I had a brilliant time, making me feel completely at ease as a solo traveller. The driver César was great too. I would definitely recommend.

brilliant and fascinating tour courtesy of Luis, covered so much about Colombia's incredibly rich history. Being able to taste different fruits was such a nice touch as well! Plus ending with coffee - always good 😊 Thanks so much, would highly recommend this tour to learn more about Bogotá and Colombia!
