It was amazing! Wonderful day!

The tour was wonderful !! Everything was perfect. The service was punctual and excellent. Our guide, Sebastian, was very attentive, kind and friendly. I was able to highlight the important and interesting information about the places where we went through the tour. Lunch was special and delicious! We love the empanadas and the main course too! An experience that, for sure, will remain forever in our memories! This tour helped us to know a little more about Bogotá and left us wanting to come back to know even more the colors and flavors of Colombia.

Our tour guide, Andrés, has full knowledge of the landscapes and culture of Bogotá. He led us to experience the essence of that beautiful city, which left us with the desire to visit again. He and our driver Jorge, formed an excellent team, creating a unique experience for our first visit to Bogotá. Both were very professional and respectful at all times which gave us a lot of security, since we were two women alone. We are very pleased with the service provided so we recommend it.

The tour lasted for about 7:30 hours, and covered all the main attractions and sightseeing points of the city. The tour guide and the driver knew English very well and managed to give me a lot of information of the city, not only the mainstream touristic info but also the insider tips of someone that lives the city. Highly recommend!

Worth every penny!

We loved our tour of Bogota with Carolina! She was so knowledgeable and her English was great! It was great to have someone to take pictures as well! We loved the tour and all of the information about Bogota that she shared. Omar, our driver, was also great. Bogota is a beautiful city!

Marie was an awesome and very knowledgeable tour guide
