Hello GuruWalkers! We are Ala Tours. We were born in Bogota, Colombia and our team has been living in New York City for several years as well as traveling around the world getting to know different places that we have fallen in love with. New Yorkers say that we transmit the energy of the city more local than they do, because of our love and knowledge about this great city. We have visited close to 50 countries and from each of them we learned something new. Our goal is to discover the culture, architecture, art and customs of each new destination we visit. Likewise, we love to share experiences, so we will be happy to share with you everything we know about NYC, so you can take with you an unforgettable experience. We are waiting for you!
