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.

The graffiti walking tour was a highlight of my visit to Bogotá. Our guide, Jose, was so knowledgeable and answered all our questions. I learned a lot about the history of graffiti worldwide and in Bogotá and we got to see some gorgeous and fascinating street art. Jose was so kind, warm, helpful, and fun and made the experience wonderful! I highly recommend this tour.
