Tour description

We will walk through the Candelaria district, the oldest and most important neighborhood in Bogotá. We will talk about history, geography, current social and political situation in Colombia. We get involved with our culture by drinking chicha! The most traditional fermented drink in the city, part of our indigenous heritage. We will also try a local snack made with corn and, at the end of the tour, we will play the game of gunpowder, better known as Tejo, a fun drinking game played in pre-Hispanic times. This tour gives you a complete idea about the context of the capital of Colombia. You will never get bored because we talk about different topics, interact with the locals, visit the most important places in the city and get the maximum artistic and historical value from all the streets we walk through.

To start, it was supposedly a free walking tour, I got a message that it had a cost and if I agreed, I accept because food and drinks were included. When I got there I was told by the tour guide a change of plans, the tour that was in spanish was going to be in english now and I had not option to deny it. Then I got there and the english tour guide wasn't that fluent, we got so little food but at the end was just fine. Maybe is the expectations I had from previous tours or that I don't like when people change this as promised.

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!
