Tour description

Would you like to know the history, culture and art of Cali, the capital of salsa? So, don't miss this free tour of the most emblematic places in the city, where you can admire its architecture, its landscape and its diversity. On this tour, you will visit:

The church of San Antonio, a colonial jewel that offers you a panoramic view of the city and a tradition of typical sweets.
The Tertulia museum, the main museum of modern and contemporary art in Cali, where you can appreciate a collection of American graphic works, watch a movie in its auditorium-cinema library and enjoy a show in its open-air theater.
The river boulevard, a public space that borders the Cali River, where you can relax in its small square, ride a bike, participate in cultural events and observe some of the most emblematic monuments of the city.

The Hermitage Church, a neo-Gothic church, inspired by the Ulm Cathedral, which will surprise you with its stone façade, its rose window, its clock, its pipe organ and its stained glass windows.
The clandestine pergola, a bar-restaurant on the pool terrace of the Hotel Santiago de Cali, where you can have fun in its three different environments, listen to various music, taste cocktails, attend a cinema forum and visit a museum dedicated to Jairo Varela, the creator of Grupo Niche.

The Jairo Varela square, a square that pays tribute to the master of Colombian salsa, with a bronze sculpture that forms the word Niche, with music inside, a gastronomic and cultural market and a stage for musical events.

It turned out that I was the only one going on the tour, so I got a private tour through the city. Carlos took his time, gave a lot of information, answered all my questions and was enthusiastic about showing me the places we visited. I would definitely recommend this tour!

This is a good tour if this is your first day in Cali. I’ve been here for 5 days now and I knew most of the places we went. Carlos is an excellent guide, very sympathetic.
