We had Angie as our guide and I have to say I learned so much more about Colombian history from her than in any classroom! Highly recommended this tour on your first visit to Bogota.

Daniel was a really great tour guide, very knowledgable and personable. The tour covered a wide range of topics and not just covered Bogota’s history but Colombia as a whole. A great way to spend a few hours in the city!
