Private Tour: Cali City Sightseeing

About this activity
After hotel pickup, your private guide takes you to Plaza Caicedo, the commercial and civic center of Cali, where tall spindly palm trees lend the green square a tropical flair. Among the mix of historical and modern buildings, admire the French Neoclassical National Palace and the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Then travel to the neighborhood of San Antonio and listen to stories of Cali’s origins from the hilltop next to a river. Visit the nearby church, built in 1747 and home to Quito-style painted woodcarvings of saints from the 17th century. Capture wonderful city views from the park surrounding the church, and take a few moments to browse through artisan stalls or listen to musicians who might be livening up the area.

Back in the vehicle, head to Merced Church, the city’s oldest church dating back to 1545, a charming and simple example of whitewashed Spanish colonial architecture.

Take a break from sightseeing and tuck into a traditional Colombia delicacy or beverage (own expense) beside the fountains in Parque Panamericano. Your guide can describe each option and help you make a selection (see samples below).

Refreshed, continue on to the park of El Gato del Rio, and smile at the 3-ton bronze sculpture of a cat, with 15 smaller feline statues scattered throughout the park, all painted by different Colombian artists.

Finish your tour with a visit to the viewpoint of Sebastian de Belalcázar, in the hills overlooking the city, and while regarding the monument of the same name, learn about the Spanish conquistador who founded the city in 1536.

With a great base knowledge of Cali, enjoy private transport back to your hotel.

Cero. They took my money that I paid for the tour saying that I wasn't in my hotel. They visited the hotel around 9am when my tours was planing at 3pm. They supposed that I have to be in my hotel until they show up even I din't know that they will visit me. They insisted that the tourist has to call them not them to the tourist because they don't have the phone numbers from the tourists. Bad customer service Fraud!!!
