Grand City Tour Bogotá

1 day
About this activity
Our Grand City Tour is the most comprehensive way to see the relevant sights of the city in one day. You'll be guided by an expert versed in a wide historical and current knowledge of Colombia. The first stop is at the Monserrate Sanctuary, located on the imposing eastern hills of the city at an altitude of 3150 MAMSL. Ascending onto the top of the mountain on a cable car, we will reach the most notorious pilgrimage point of the city and possibly the best panoramic views of the capital. This is for sure the best spot to make a historical and spatial contextualization of the city. Once back on the ground we will travel into the past, going directly to the time of the Latin American independence by visiting the house of Colombias liberator, La Quinta de Bolivar. Then, back in the present time, we will get ourselves familiar with the student atmosphere within the campus of Universidad de los Andes. Continuing the tour, we will go down stream following the Eje Ambiental, witnessing the effort this city has made to recover the river that originally gave it life, through one of the most famous urbanistic projects in Latin America, carried out by architect Rogelio Salmona. Following the river San Francisco towards Jimenez Avenue we will dive into the most impressive collection of indigenous gold pieces in the world at the Gold Museum. At the exit, you will have the chance to shop at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander. Next, we will enter the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria and wander the picturesque cobbled streets that hold more then 400 years of history. We will visit the Botero Museum, which features works of the eccentric artist who has become an icon of Colombian contemporary art. We will make a stop at Chorro de Quevedo and appreciate the diverse contrasts that the historical center offers in order to understand Colombian history. After a lunch break at an authentic local restaurant, we will reach Plaza de Bolivar; historical epicenter of Bogota. The main square is surrounded by the administrative and governmental buildings that have been icons of the historical processes carried out here. We will also have the chance to enter the Prime Cathedral. Finally we will hop in a car and drive towards the north of the city, having a panoramic sight of the International Centre, La Macarena Neighborhood and National Park. The final destination, will be the cozy neighborhood of Usaqun, which holds in its narrow streets the best weekend flea market in town.
