Since I was a child I always liked to tell stories, because sharing the fascination for stories and adventures has been a pillar of my life. Storytelling was what led me to study journalism. During my studies I got to know the tourism industry, and since 2017 I have been able to live the beautiful experience of being a tour guide. Sharing my little piece of the world with those who are interested in my beautiful country is what has pushed me to learn more about history, culture, politics and curiosities. In 2019 I obtained my professional card as a National Guide, and since then I have developed tourist proposals in Bogotá and Cundinamarca.

Camila did such an amazing job with the tour. She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate, and if you want something with more substance than a typical touristy walk then this is for you. Camila gave an incredible overview of the complicated realities Colombians have dealt with for decades, including historical context and modern perspectives. We visited two museums and she explained everything with care. I can't recommend her enough, just absolutely the best tour I've ever had! Muchísimas gracias a Camila por compartiendo la historia de tu país conmigo.

Me habían recomendado este tour pero superó mis expectativas! Camila consigue proporcionar mucha información pero de manera muy clara y entretenida. Me gustó mucho también la visita a la exposición fotográfica de Jesús Abad porque ayuda a poner cara a todas esas personas que están detrás de las cifras de víctimas.
