About the Tour

Colombia, one of the happiest countries on earth, has been affected globally by its bad reputation for various negative situations such as being a huge drug producer, assassinations of political leaders, and violent conflicts between different armed groups. Today, this has changed quite a bit, and while on this tour, you will understand the causes, the development, and the present days Colombian conflict. Join us for a real and interactive experience through some remarkable places and scars of the past. Learn about the development of Colombia's conflict in Bogota that changed our history, its ties to drug cartels and "You know who" behind it and the violence he imposed on the country. At the end of this experience, you will have a more comprehensive understanding of our political history, the war, it's key players, Colombian and international drug trades, the peace agreement, and where the country is heading in the near future. Join us on a walk through old and new times! https://youtu.be/8zbXOoqw3bM

Hicimos el tour con Santiago ...tiene profundos conocimientos y es muy didáctico para explicar desde donde nace el conflicto con todos sus actores ...Relata con pasión los sucesos históricos, mucha calidez y respeto. Y quiero agradecerle puntualmente que haya dispuesto más de su tiempo en nosotras, ya que participamos activamente en todas sus explicaciones ... Muchas gracias por ofrecer este servicio !!!

Great tour! Lots of amazing information, learnt plenty about the ups and downs of Colombia's history. Would have liked more sights, for it to be called a 'walking' tour. More of a 'great information tour!'
