Rafael was the best guide we ever had. Great day. He placed the day perfectly, stopping in typical Colomian places whenever we need to rest. Got a lot more than wah we paid for.

We booked this tour, 4 people, expecting to see a bit of Bogota. Our expectations were exceeded by far. Santiago, our guide, was not only very knowledgeable, born and bred in Bogota, he told us so many fun facts, was very friendly, easy going and had super English. We started on Monserat, stunning fews over the city on a clear day, lovely decoration for Christmas, a picturesque church and amazing countryside all around.We then went into the city's old quaters admiring the architecture and vibrant street life, stopping at many street food stalls, sampling delicious Colombian food. We past the government and President building; watched a marching band and soldiers parade. Then we took a tour of the cultural center, beautiful courtyards and art displays. Finally we visited the very interesting gold museum. The tour was jam packed without being overbearing. Very informative and interesting in every way . Santiago was one of the best guides we ever had.Well worth doing this tour. Loved it.

GREAT way to spend my first day in Bogota. The views from Monserrate were gorgeous, and our long walk around Bogota was lovely - weather cooperated beautifully. Wear comfy shoes, the walking part wore me out! Got little snacks along the way instead of one big meal, which I really liked. Cheesy hot chocolate, empanadas, etc. Zero complaints, thanks for a great tour!

She was just a wealth of local info- and a lot of fun to be with!. Ask her to take you to the restaurant for hot chocolate with cheese!!!!!!

This tour was beyond expectation. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. One can always walk around a city and see the sites but when you are with a guide on a personal tour you really learn more about the culture, history and country. I highly recommend this tour!

I loved the tour! I learned a lot with my super knowledgeable tour guide who was very friendly. She shared her umbrella until I bought one and then it stopped raining, of course. Since it was a private tour, she let me stop everywhere I wanted to shop, look around, and take photos. I was able to pick the place where I wanted to have lunch.

Monserrate was nice, fantastic views of the city, lots of beautiful flowers up top. La Candelaria was a bit underwhelming, this historic area has been allowed to fall into terrible condition, but fortunately it looks like it's being restored now. I did like when we stopped for a minute in a small local bar popular among students to try some chicha, which was tasty. The neighborhood itself lacks the requisite richness in history and detail to be interesting on its own. I'd recommend trying to find specific historical figures and stories to tell while walking through to make it more interesting similar to the tale of Bolivar being led out of his window by his mistress to avoid assassination--more of those. The Gold Museum was underwhelming, very repetitive with the same displays essentially being put up in a dozen or so rooms under the names of different ingenious tribes. Even most of the collection in the vault was kind of meh. The first section explaining how gold was mined and worked by these cultures was cool though. I did enjoy being taken to lunch at a popular local spot for some tasty ajiaco, that was nice.

This tour was okay. This tour was extremely overpriced. The tour guide had knowledge and was patient. However, after utilizing another tour company the day before I was extremely disappointed with the cost.
