  • We were met on time at the airport by our guide and toured the city in newer vehicles. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his city. We really got a good flavor of Bogota and are inspired to return there for an extended stay sometime. The only downer was that, being a Canadian citizen, we had to pay a stiff entry tax even for the short few hours we were visiting.

  • This private sightseeing tour was an exceptional way to learn about Bogota. My past experiences have been as an independent traveler, but I wanted to see the city in a compressed time period, and not worry about making my flight. The guide and driver were kind and relatable, the food and drink experiences were unique and lovely, the cultural stops were engaging. I liked how the tour could be customized based on the travelers' activity levels. I really wanted to get some walking in so I could sleep on my overnight flight and it was easy to do. To me, taking such a tour seemed a little bougie, but it really allowed me to access places and experiences that I wouldn't have found easily on my own. Colombia surprised me pleasantly and I can't wait to return!

  • Luis was super professional and knowledgeable on the tour. He was made us feel so comfortable and intrigued with the history of Colombia/Bogota! There is so much to know about this beautiful city and country. The only thing to watch out for is depending on your connection time, I would save at least 2 hours to account for travel and clear long security/immigration lines to avoid stress, i.e. if you have a 6 hour layover, do a 4-hour layover tour, we had 7 hour lay-over and booked a 6-hour tour, we were glad that Luis was able to cram in so much when we told him that we need to shorten our trip!

  • Overall a good walking and guided tour. the guide was a bit over the top, in terms of catering to us. The cable car ride up to monastery was supposedly very busy and the guide did not take us there. reason given was that with a 2 hour queue, it would be practically impossible to come back and see other things. The monastery was the primary purpose of our layover, so we were disappointed. Instead he steered us to an emerald museum and to the shop for a guided demonstration of emerald cutting. obviously, he knew the folks there and made us sit and listen for 15 mins to this. the rest of the walkabout through the city was nice. he took us to good shops for artifacts. Also saw fantastic museums. Overall, we covered the 6 hour trip with other things. and got a good overview of the city.
    Bogota is an amazing city and worth more than a layover visit. Will be visiting the city, but taking time and sightseeing on my own over several days, not on a layover. for an introductory tour, this was a good start.

  • This was an incredible tour. Our guide,Luis was very informative, and was able to fit in most all major attractions within the time allocated. One of the best private tours we have taken.

  • Fabian was an amazing tour guide! He made it seem like we were just touring the city with a friend. He and #39;s also very knowledgeable about Bogota. We learned so much from him. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour. Everything went according to plan and got so much out of it! Thanks Fabian!

  • I had a 10-hour lay-over flight in Bogota and wanted to get a quick taste of the city. This tour was perfect! My guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He she showed me the highlights of the city, which included a behind the scenes tour explaining how Colombian coffee is manufactured. I also had a traditional Colombian lunch which was excellent. At the end I had a few hours to visit places that I was interested in seeing, including the Museo de Oro. Highly recommend this tour!

  • We only had a morning to see the city with a flight at 2 pm so we arranged this private site seeing tour with the guides picking us up at the hotel and dropping us at the airport in time for our flight. This worked so well. We were able to modify the day to get in what we could that interested us the most. Our guide took us to such interesting places. I would strongly suggest this tour to anyone who really wants to get a feel for Bogota on a layover or with a short time. We had been to a wedding the night before so were really tired and the guide took us to a very interesting place for coffee that really helped.

  • I rated this low because i only received an email on Dec. 30 2016 telling me the museums would be closed on Jan. 1, 2017. I would like to cancel the tour but realized that there would be no refund 2 days before the tour.

    Danny, the guide, picked me up and dropped me off at the airport, then we walked around the city center. He bought me a breakfast, later we went to Salt Cathedral instead of the coffee tour. I don't feel it is worth the money i paid USD157!

  • It was not a private tour at all. A french Stewardess was invited by our tour guide at the Airport. Therefore we had a french and english tour ! Unfortunately the stewardess was more important. Thus, we spend more than 2 hours to bring this person back to her Hotel and just catched our flight !
