Bogotá City Tour is the most comprehensive way to see the relevant sights of the city in one day. You will be guided by a knowledgeable guide who will teach you about historical and current facts of Colombia.


The first stop will be a visit through the picturesque cobbled streets of La Candelaria. You will visit the Botero Museum, which features works of the eccentric artist who has become an icon of Colombian contemporary art, Fernando Botero. You will have a stop at Chorro de Quevedo to appreciate the diverse contrasts that the historical center offers and learn more about Bogotá's history.

After the walking tour in La Candelaria, you will reach Plaza de Bolívar; The main square of the city. The square is surrounded by administrative and governmental buildings that have been fundamental to the historical processes of the country that you will know through the tour guide.
 

Finally, you will walk through Jimenez Avenue to visit an impressive collection of indigenous gold pieces at the Gold Museum. At the exit, you will have the chance to shop at the handicrafts market at Santander Park.
 

As an option, we can visit Monserrate Sanctuary, located within the imposing Eastern Hills of the city, at an altitude of 3150 meters above sea level. Ascending to the top of the mountain on a cable car, you will reach the most notorious pilgrimage point of the city and an incredible lookout spot in the capital below. This is a spot to grasp the historical and spatial context of the city.

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! :-

Interesting contrast between old and new sections of downtown Bogota each has its distinct character and charm. The governmental square features the picturesque capitol and lots of friendly pigeons. The cobble-stone streets of the less modern city sector lead to several delightful restaurants and bars. The cable car provided us breathtaking views of entire city. Our professional tour guide spoke impeccable English, enabling my wife and I to thoroughly enjoy the moments.
