About the tour

Hi! how are you? I am Lorena :) and I tell you that Bogotá has somewhat hidden places and incredible stories on every street, the best thing about my tour is that we walk through all of them! You will learn about our history with its monuments and churches, our beautiful architecture with houses that have challenged time and the incredible biology that accompanies us with parks, streams and hills nearby. Through my stories you can feel like a Bogotano: D while you enjoy not so crowded spaces in the middle of a small candy (if you wish) and my warm company. ♡
