About the tour

Hear the most ferocious episodes of the Independence War in front of the Memorial to the Heroes of the Independence. Learn the ins and outs of the famous "Bogotazo," the incident which lead to the decade know as "La Violencia," while facing the Jorge Eliecer Gaitán memorial, the assassinated liberal leader.

Visit the places were the most atrocious incidents in the recent history of Bogotá took place. Such as the Palace of Justice which was under siege in 1985 from the Guerrilla M19, and learn the role that Pablo Escobar, the world's most famous narco and leader of the Medellín Cartel, played in it. Understand the complicated relationship between the guerrillas and narcos, how they depend upon each other to survive yet have such opposed ideologies.

On our Free Peace in Colombia Tour we will show you all the ingredients that have made Colombia the birthplace of a new science brutally named violentology. But we will also show you the titanic effort which has taken place in order to solve the problem, opening up new horizons of hope and prosperity for a country that despite its determination to self-destroy, is today very close to peace and gazes upon the future with renewed optimism.

Catalina fue una guía ejemplar. Hizo un recorrido muy interesante que lo complementó con una muestra fotográfica. Mis amigas y yo salimos fascinadas del tour y desde ya lo estamos recomendando a todos nuestros amigos. Fue una de las mejores experiencias que tuve cuando visité Bogotá.
