About the tour

La Candelaria is a creative hot-spot of Bogotá. There’s nothing like it anywhere else in this sprawling city. Art-deco and colonial houses, with baroque churches behind them; the old and the new intermingled in this Free Walking Tour Bogotá.

Join one of our guides in the heart of Bogotá and discover what this neighborhood has hidden away. Inscribed in graffiti and mixed in the drinks, you’ll discover Bogotá’s colonial and indigenous past, the roots of Colombian history.

A confluence of culture and conflict can be felt all around, as you follow a trail of graffiti through old city streets. Learn about the impact of Colombian drug trafficking, emerald mafia, and how all lines up with its +50 years armed conflict. State, drugs, war, guerrillas, trade: a volatile mixture that has often blinded us to the better side of Colombia.

Ever wondered why Colombia has one of the best coffees in the world? Finalize your downtown adventure with a warm cup of the best coffee around and learn its history.

This tour has a suggestion of USD 10.

Response from Gran Colombia Tours:

Hola Pablo. Agradecemos tus comentarios y feedback. La parada en el Mercado de la Concordia es una de las experiencias gastronómicas más cortas y didácticas en el recorrido. Adicionalmente esta no tiene ningún fin comercial y en Gran Colombia Tours apoyamos el comercio local como en la Plaza de la Concordia, ¡feliz día!
