Tour description

Welcome to Colombia , a country known for the joy and kindness of its people, which has been affected by its bad reputation due to various negative situations.

Today, this has changed a lot, and during this shared Tour you will understand the causes, the development and the Colombian conflicts that have shaped our history up to the present. Some of the topics you will learn are:

- Independence process
- The Bogotazo and the time of violence
- The military dictatorship
- Creation of the guerrillas: FARC, ELN, M - 19
- Peace process
- Current political situation

Join us for a real and interactive experience through some remarkable places and scars from the past. Learn about the development of the Colombian conflict in Bogotá that changed our history, its links to the drug cartels and the "Patron" behind it and the violence that he imposed on the country.

At the end of this experience, you will have a more complete understanding of our political history, the war, its key players, the fight against national and international drug trafficking, among others.

Join us on a walk through old and new times! https://youtu.be/8zbXOoqw3bM

Fascinating tour which packed in loads of information about Colombia's complicated past and present. The guide was really informative and gave us lots of time to ask questions on the walk and over coffee afterwards. I learned so much and highly recommend!
