Tour description

Join one of our expert guides in this amazing free bike tour around downtown Bogotá and learn about the history and culture of the city.

Bogotá is packed full of history. From its foundation to modern times, the city has sprawled around its vibrant and ever-changing downtown. And just walking can’t ever do it justice. Our free bike tour was designed to show a bigger face of this massive city and its more than 500 years of history. You will discover so much more on a bike that you would do on foot or bus!

Visit the city’s founding three plazas to understand how the city has changed over time. From its indigenous beginnings to Spanish colonialism, independence and modern times, learn how each place has symbolically transformed over time.

Then, join us at Seventh Avenue, the commercial lifeline that connects north and south. It was originally an important salt road in indigenous times, it now gathers Colombians of all walks of life in trade, culture, politics and, protests.

We’ll then go to Independence Park: the oldest in the city. Around it, Bogotá’s cosmopolitanism can be better explored through the adjacent Planetarium, Santamaria Bullring, Modern Art Museum and surrounding neighborhoods. Science, art, history, and culture clash and mingle in this often-controversial space.

Then, visit the National Park, half forest-reservoir, half-cultural and, science hub. A typical weekend gathering spot for Bogotá’s denizens, where we will discuss broader changes in Colombia as a whole.

We will then make our way back through the Parkway, part of La Soledad Neighborhood. Bogotá’s first boulevard and another of its cultural and artistic hubs where. Here artists celebrate the White Night, a gathering of artists that fills the boulevard with sculptures, performances, paintings and more.

This tour has a suggestion of USD 10.

We were positivly surprised by the bike tour. It was a medium level bike ride. Even though we were a bit concerned that it would be to hard for us we enjoyed doing it a lot. Riding the bikes was also a lot easier than we thought considering the traffic in Bogotá because for most of the route we drove on lanes on the street that are only for bikes. Therefore it felt safer than anticipated. Our guide (José) was really nice and his english was very good. He had a lot of interesting information to offer and could also answer all of our questions. Still it was not boring and a very fun atmosphere because he had a lot of fun facts to offer as well. Even though the tour was free (tip based) our guide bought everyone a juice. We got it at a cute little booth in a park and we could taste test some of their juices before we decided wich one we wanted. All in all it was actually one of the best city tours I ever attended and we would defintly book another tour with José.

Bernardo was a very fun tour guide. The bike ride around the city was great. We also did it on Sunday to be part of Ciclovia. Highly recommend doing this tour on Sundays.
