AMAZING! Worth every cent. The tour girl, Andrea, really lets you in in every detail about every part of the city you visit, super kind and super helpful. There's a lot of walking, yes, but it´s worth it, you learn a lot about Bogota's history and you get to understand the relevance of the things you see. Would definitely go again if I get the chance.

Andrea is the sweetest! Qhen we went up to the top of Bogota, I felt sick because I had to little to eat and drink, and she was so sweet and shared her water with me, and she found places we could sit in the shadows, when she talked. And she was just easy to talk to, she is a really good tour guide! - The food was amazing and the city is beautiful. The tour was just great! :D

Nick was a phenomenal tour guide - we lucked out and landed a private tour. Nick was soooo knowledgeable, gracious, kind and friendly. We even ended up with pics with Carlos Trilleras, the renowned street artist - which was a real bonus. Love this experience and Nick’s guidance!! Thank you Nick!! You are a gift to Colombia!!

Our tour guide was Gina and she was phenomenal! We spent the day exploring the city while learning about the history of Colombia--both social and political. The tour was better than we could have ever expected. Gina was kind, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to learn about Bogota's history while also seeing all its beauty.

Would 100% recommend this tour! Our guide was Andrés and he was brilliant! He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We learned so much about Bogota and its history, plus we got to taste some amazing Colombian food - including hot chocolate with cheese! 😄 As an artist himself, Andrès collaborates with other local artists and was able to show us different works of art. He also provided fascinating information on the surrounding street art as we progressed through the city. Such an interesting and varied tour. Thanks again Andrés, we loved it!

Great way to see Bogota (ask for Nick)!

Nick was the best guide we could have had to show us around Candelaria and Monserrate. He was very friendly and extremely personable, which made it feel more like we were seeing the sights with a friend than a guide. As a history buff, I enjoyed hearing about Bogotá’s history and the many influences that made Bogota into what it is today. Nick also took us to several great spots to try local foods and drinks, all of which were amazing. He’s a great photographer as well, and even shared his WhatsApp with us in case we had additional questions later on or needed more recommendations. Nick is the absolute best! As for the tour, it was a great way to see Bogotá’s sights in a day. The views from Monserrat are beautiful, the Museo Botero was very interesting, and history of Candelaria and Bogota were fascinating.

History, breathtaking views, great food and a LOT of gold!

Had an amazing tour with Nick! He really knows his city, and you can tell he loves sharing that with the people that visit! The Monserrate had to be my favorite place to see, but the whole thing was amazing! It was almost a private excursion, as there was only one other person with me, so it gave us more time to ask questions and to absorb the "useless facts," as he called it, which totally weren't useless! It was great! He gave us all kinds of tips and suggestions. I wish I had more time to take another trip with him! See if you can get Nick as your guide; you won't be disappointed!
