Cathedral tour more so than a salt mine tour
Trish_S
, Sep 2021
This was disappointing. The tour guide was nice and the transportation was good, the actual salt mine was underwhelming. The one on Poland was spectacular so I guess my expectations were too high.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Trish, thank you very much for trusting and choosing our service during your stay in Bogota. Regarding your comment, we are glad that you liked our service and we are saddened to receive a rating of 3 because the salt cathedral did not meet your expectations and this rating is focused on the service of the company. It is difficult to compare our places with those of other countries because each one is different and has its magic and for many tourists it is great to visit it and see the work that workers have done for years. We hope you can return to our country so that you know more unique places for us full of culture and people willing to receive you. Best regards

Zipaquira day trip

Nestor was our driver - he was informative and flexible with what we wanted to do. The trip was organized and we had enough time to do what was intended for us to do. The lunch at Zipaquira was also amazing (not included in the tour price, FYI).

I had a good time. The cathedral is really inspirational. The driver was on time and was helpful in answering questions. He picked me up at my hotel!! Cathy the coordinator was very accomodating. I really appreciated that. I would highly recommend this tour.

Amazing one of a kind experience

Great experience!! We were picked up from our location in a white van. We were the only ones going to the Salt Cathedral so it was nice having the van all to ourselves. The driver was very kind and throughout the trip would give us information about the towns we were passing. The drive was an hour long from Bogota. When we got there, he made sure we joined a group and that we had the headphones. The tour inside the Cathedral was excellent! We got so much information about it I was overwhelmed but in a good way. I feel lucky to have seen such an amazing place. Apparently the only two salt cathedrals in the world are in Poland and Colombia. After the tour my sister and I decided to get a massage at the spa inside the cathedral. It was an unforgettable experience. Glad I got to do it! Overall, the while tour was very enjoyable and memorable. Do this tour at least once! You won’t regret it!

This was a great tour and experience. The pick up instructions were clear and the tour was on time. Everything was explained clearly when we arrived at the Salt Cathedral and we had more than enough time to experience the site. Our tour guide then drove us to the town of Zipaquira and gave us some history on the area. Lastly, our tour guide happily dropped us off at Monserrate as we had a tour at that site which was extremely helpful. Highly recommend!

The Salt Cathedral is a worthy visit for any visitor to Colombia. Incredible ingenuity and design. We spent just over 2 hours at the salt mine which was plenty of time there. Traffic to/from Bogota is snail paced and aggressive. I'm appreciative that our driver didn't cut back on time spent at the salt mine or at the nearby Zipaquirá village. The 6-hour tour was actually 8 hours (I was the first pick up and last drop off). The driver handled the traffic with poise and did not seem hurried to drop us off. Pick up location was exactly as provided, driver showed up on time and knew my name, vehicle was clean.

Very Unique and Interesting. Must See!

One in the world excursion. Very meaningful, especially if Christian/Catholic. Combination of the Stations of the Cross and a cave adventure. Only downside was traffic, especially back into Bogota. Outbound drive was around an hour (tolerable). Inbound was closer to two hours (not so fun). Tour guide was great - traffic wasn't his fault! Small group size (4 people) was nice.
