The hike itself is awesome, not too much vertical however the path has a very uneven surface. It was raining the day we went and were very glad we had hiking shoes, good idea regardless if raining or not. It was also foggy but we lucked out and had a break in the weather just in time to see the whole waterfall. Our guide, Andres, was very informative almost to a fault. We stopped and had lunch on the path which was one of our best meals of our trip to Colombia, I would highly recommend eating on the hike. Overall, I would recommend this excursion.

We had an awesome time hiking to the two waterfalls. José was the perfect guide on the trip, and he took into consideration our meal preferences when selecting the lunch spot. We would definitely do this tour again. Before you book, contact the agency and ask when José would be available to serve as your guide!

Wow what an experience, spending 6 hours one on one with my guide Felipe, travelling from Bogota to La chorrerra and back.The driver was great, the conversation was fascinating, the weather was... so so! Hiking up to La Chorerra was quite touch, the altitude and steep climbs made it a bit more than a medium challenge I would say.The waterfall itself was magnificent and then lunch looking over El Chiffron was a great way to finish.

We did the day hike to La Chorrera Falls and it was a outstanding day in Colombia, our guide Andres was outstanding and he took the time to provide details of Colombia on the way to the hike, During the hiking experience he described all the flowers, trees and shrubs along the path and what the locals used them for as well as describing the wildlife along the trail. Breakfast and lunch was provided and was great, highly recommend this hike while your in Colombia.

The views were amazing and the hike out was fun. That being said, the trail is very slippery, so if you are not prepared to fall, then don't go none of us slipped, but we saw others that did. We were picked up from our hotel and on our way to the falls we were offered some local cuisine, but had a big breakfast so only a taste. After the hike, we had a quick snack and then were treated to a nice meal back in Bogota. It can be cloudy, so be patient and wait for a view of the falls. Lots of great pictures and memories would do it again.

What a terrific day. An energetic hike to the waterfall but I was in good hands with my guide and driver.Guide was informed and very friendly. Both myself and the driver slipped in parts and ended up with very muddy jeans and filthy hands but it's part of the experience. Couldn't recommend this tour enough.

This was a great hike! A little more challenging than I expected but the tour guide was happy to take breaks as needed. The scenery is beautiful and untouched and makes a great change of pace from Bogota without having to travel very far. The tour guides were very friendly and fun to hike with.

Our English speaking tour guide arrived at the hotel fifteen minutes ahead of schedule. He gave us a quick breakdown as to what would be expected. Alejandro was knowledgeable, courteous and he took us on a great half of day tour. We ended the tour with a transport back to our hotel but not before enjoy a traditional Colombian lunch at the nearby home of one of the locals. Only suggestion would be to let people know they should be in moderate health for this hike.

We had a great day hiking to the bottom of La Chorrera waterfall and then seeing El Chiflon on the way back. The trail was relatively easy with only a few steeper areas and we were lucky with the weather that it was not overly muddy. The trail was very well maintained and there were often steps/stones which made navigation much easier. Our guide Alejandro paced the hike well, especially with varying speeds of the hikers. He was knowledgeable about the trees and flowers we passed and was able to answer all of our questions. The drive to the park entrance was very nice and our driver did an excellent job navigating all of the roads, including the unpaved sections. Although only 30km from Bogota, it felt like we were much further away. This was one of our favorite days in Bogota!

One of my favorite guided tours in all my travels and it was thanks to our wonderful and knowledgeable guide, Andre. It felt like we were going on a hike with a friend who also happened to know lots of interesting information regarding the flora and fauna we encountered. A must do!!!

Well off the beaten path and quite a challenging hike to get to, but a fantastic view and experience.

I enjoyed getting out of the city and experiencing this hike. The park is beautiful. The actual activity was a bit tougher than I expected - would definitely recommend good hiking shoes with grips, and ensure you are up for lots of steep inclines and rocks.This attraction had less commentary about history, etc. It was mainly focused on the walk and being in nature.

The cardio workout on this trip should not be understated - certainly not the choice for the couch potatoes or persons who are not used to the altitude. Overall - we loved it - it was a really great day trip, and the scenery as incredible. Alejandro our guide was very good and very patient. Lunch option was a bit too rustic, but delicious!
