Juan was great, knowledgeable and funny. A true Bogotian. The tour was very interesting and gave us a good picture of the culture, the architecture, and history of Bogotá and Columbia. We had an amazing time, and would definitely recommend to join the tour. Thank you!!

Everyone visiting Bogota should go on this tour! Our tour guide Paula was amazing, she told us so much about the past and current situation in Bogota and Colombia, showed us around the center and taught us how to play tejo like muiscas :) Definitely recommend!

Nos tocó con Ernesto, como el grupo era de ingles y español sentimos que le prestó mas atención al grupo de ingles que a nosotros. Igual tiene mucho potencial, pruebas bebidas locales y vas camiando por La Candelaria.

El Tour por el centro histórico de Bogotá fue muy completo. Una experiencia llena de aprendizaje y vivencia de la propia cultura muisca. Es un recorrido lleno de historia y paisajes, donde también pruebas la chica y el café propio de la región, en donde visitas lugares de artesanías autóctonas y que te permiten conectarte con el lugar.

Muy recomendado! Lo hicimos con Fredy, se hizo tanto en inglés, como en español y fue una excelente experiencia.
