Had a wonderful private tour with guide Juan Carlos and driver George. After a hotel pickup when headed up to Monserrate for spectacular views of Bogota and tour or the religious shrines. It was then on to the Gold Museum, La Candaleria and Bolivar Square. The tour was well paced with a variety of stops to see Bogota in different ways. There is no lunch break so you will have to catch something on the go or even head to McDonalds after the tour is over. Once making it through Bogota traffic it was back to my hotel after a full day. As we drove through the city Juan Carlos pointed out many of the cities districts schools and hospitals to give me a great feel for the city. When in La Candaleria in the Bottero Museum I even saw my first Picasso paintings. I enjoyed the part of the tour which had us walk through the city, giving a good sense of the spirit of Bogota.

I booked this trip the morning of. The group IMPULSE worked very hard to arrange a driver and a guide. I accidentally got in the wrong car leaving my hotel yes... I know... duhhh and the company worked with the driver to get me to the drop off point to meet my guide. The rest of the tour was amazing. I saw EVERYTHING on my list in only 5 hours and I did not feel rushed at all. Highly reccomend!

This tour was great! But I encouraged you to ask for Fabian Correa as your tour guide. Fabian is a very well educated young man who knows everything from Bogota City and can show you what this city is about. He spent the whole 5 hours with me, showed me the great city view from the Monserrate and always with a lot of interesting facts and information. Highly recommended but with Fabian! :-
