The most memo part part of this trip was that I paid for a free trip and when I notified via tour of my objection they told me that I could go pound sand so even though I was one of 30 people on a free trip they paid for through viator I was not refunded my money they are thieves and liars

Hola Vicki! As specified in the description of the tour and on "what to expect", the amount you paid us is for the tips for our guides, it is crystal clear there, the tour is free but works on tips like in every other free tour around the globe. In any case, I hope your travels continue to be safe and sound. Kind regards, Mario

La visita al mercado. La única recomendación es que se debería abrir cada una de las frutas que muestran para que el turista la pueda ver, oler y probar cada una.

Aparte del pago del tour, cobran 10 dólares como propina.
Yackeline_a

Adquirí el tour caminata, sencillo y económico, Luis fue un excelente guía, nos encantó a todos el tour. Todo bien, casi 3 horas caminando y conociendo la historia de la candelaria. Pero al final creo todos nos llevamos una sorpresa cuando nos pidió una propina, diciendo que lo regular eran 10 dólares, monto que tuve que dar. Jamás en todos los tours que he adquirido en otros países me han pedido “propina” extra aparte de lo pagado x el tour. Eso realmente hizo que mi visita no fuera del todo bien porque no conté con ese gasto extra ese día.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hola Yackeline, Gracias por realizar el tour con nosotros, me alegra saber que disfrutaste la extensión del tour, las paradas y la historia de Bogotá. El tour funciona a base de propinas así que el monto que pagaste por la plataforma son las propinas por adelantado de nuestros guías, en la sección de información antes de reservar está explicado, de todas maneras entiendo que hubo una confusión al respecto y pagaste una propina adicional a Luis, debido a esto procedí a reembolsar lo que pagaste por la plataforma por completo. Gracias por compartir tus comentarios sobre nuestro tour y ¡Te deseo más felices viajes en tu haber! Saludos, Mario

Nette Tour durch das Viertel. Der Guide hat interessante Aspekte geteilt. Insgesamt aber eher unspektakulär und nur halb gut organisiert.

Hola Kath, we are sorry you didn’t have the great experience you were expecting. Our guides try to arrange all the stops taking into account to ensure the proper functioning of the tours but sometimes there are external factors out of our control. Anyway, please let me arrange a full refund and compensation for you. Have an excellent day and keep enjoying life. Regards, Regards,

El tour es adecuado para extranjeros. Muy superficial en historia y no se resaltan los sitios relevantes en el recorrido. No se cuenta con micrófonos para el guía se pierde la voz en muchos sitios por el ruido.
