Tour description

Want to learn how graffiti fits into Bogotá’s history and allure?

Join us on this tour not only of Colombia’s history as told by art!

Bogotá has become a world reference in graffiti. It boasts impressive murals and street art that place it above cities like Miami, Amsterdam, Rio, and México City. Its rise as one of the key city-canvases in Latin America has made it an attractive destination for the curious tourist and the bold artist. Would you have guessed?

As with graffiti everywhere else, Bogotá’s history with the art has often been tense. But great art can overcome negative labels. Right now, no one would call it vandalism. It has struggled but has earned its place and the city is better for it. The mixture of social and political commentary with a twist of local and foreign styles make Bogotá’s graffiti truly a sight to behold.

Join us in this tour not only of Colombia’s history as told by art but a tour of Bogotá’s streets as a curated museum of amazing artists!

This tour has a suggestion of USD 10.

Good amount of information regarding each graffiti visited and also a good amount of background information in order to understand the history of street art and to spot artists on the street.

Yesterday, Luis proved to be an outstanding guide on our graffiti tour. His wealth of information and keen insights captivated us. He skillfully infused fun into the experience and established a strong connection with everyone in the group.

On this day, the tour was not a 4.8. It was supposed to be an English-only tour but there were Spanish speakers that were allowed to join so we ended up with half a tour and there was at least one stop that was omitted from the programme. There was also pressure to tip at least $10 and for the first time I thought the tour fell short of this. Disappointing.
