What to Expect
Learn the history of Bogotá and Columbia with an expert guide in your chosen language (Spanish, English, Portuguese, French or German), and see the city's highlights in half a day.

Start at the Monserrate Sanctuary, located at an altitude of 3,150 meter above sea level in the city's Eastern Hills. Ascend to the top of the mountain by cable car, and reach the city's most famous pilgrimage point for panoramic views and to put the city into historical context.

Descend towards the picturesque cobblestone streets of La Candelaria in Bogotá's historic center, and visit the Botero Museum to see art by the eccentric contemporary artist Fernando Botero. Stop at the Chorro de Quevedo, where the diverse contrast of Bogotá's historic center will give you with a better understanding of Colombian history.

Next, go to Plaza de Bolívar at the historic epicenter of the city and see the administrative and government buildings surrounding the square. Enter the Primatial Cathedral of Bogotá to experience one of the largest cathedrals in South America. Then, cross the border of La Candelaria on the Eje Ambiental, and go to the Gold Museum to marvel at the world's largest collection of pre-Columbian gold. Depart the museum and shop for handicrafts in the artisan market at Parque Santander.
