We had a great experience. Camilo and Diana were on time , professional, friendly. We were able to customize our day and do exactly what we wanted to do. The restaurant was also very good. Diana is an amazing guide and photographer!!
Had a very nice day with my tour guide Emilio. We went to various locations in the city and tried several local food and drinks. Emilio also introduced to me the history and the developmemt of Colombia and Bogota. I enjoyed the tour a lot and will recommend to my friends to join this tour if they come to Bogota.
We booked this tour for the day of our arrival in Bogota. Unfortunately, this was a Sunday - a very busy day anywhere in the city! The delightful guide was on time to collect us at the hotel. However, the queues to take the vernacular up to Montserrat (and then down) were so long that the rest of the tour to the Gold and Botero museum wasnot possible. Similarly, we were only able to glimpse the old centre of Bogota in the dark. Perhaps this tour was too ambitious on a Sunday afternoon?
Not bad not great... unexciting! Like my review... Could have done all of it without a guide and better too....
We enjoyed this tour and felt that it gave a good overview of Bogota. We started the day riding the cable car since the weather was nice in the morning. We did have a little problem finding our guide in the crowded hotel lobby as he didn't have a name tag or company jacket on. The guide spoke English well, was kind, and took photos of us. I thought the gardens on Mt. Montserrat were beautiful and there are gift shops as well. The other highlight of the tour was the Boltero Museum. It contains paintings of other artists as well and has an interesting lay-out. The Museo de Oro was closed because we were there on a Monday. Instead we went to a wonderful coffee shop.
Was a great trip. Our tour guide Chris did a good job ensuring all participant where back on mini bus promptly avoiding frustrations that I have seen in the past when people are always late back. There was about 12 in the group. We did an early visit to Christ the redeemer before the cloud came in entrance not included we then went to sugar loaf mountain entrance/ cable car cost not included we toured around had lunch in a buffet style restaurant not included visited a monastery and were returned to our pick up hotels. Was a good tour but I would prefer all the extras were included in the cost I know they do do a tour that includes the extras but it was full when I tried to book. If I did it again I would book early and book the one with extras included. Great views from the vantage points we visited.
