  • Definitely quite an amazing place. Worth the short drive from Bogota. Fascinating with a lot to see. Pleasant small town as well to see.

  • Amazing place!!! I did not expect it to be so big. This visit is a must, the tour they give you is comprehensive and not long. I reccomend to do it as early as possible, it gets crowded after 11 AM. The driver was very nice and accomodagting, he picked us up at the hotel and left us there at the end. I would reccomend this tour to everyone who visits Bogota.

  • My boyfriend and I did this tour our first day in Bogota with a guide named Alex. Alex made this experience just that much better he gave us a lot of historical and cultural information about Colombia, and even helped us with a luggage situation we had at the airport! Zipaquira is beautiful, and the salt cathedral is simply breathtaking. Once inside the salt mines, your driver/guide will leave you with a group tour that will take you through the mines. This is a very holy place, and a spiritual presence was very much felt here. We took the early morning option pick up at 8am and the mine was super empty. By the time we left, around noon, it was crowded and noisy, so I recommend going in the morning. After the salt mine tour, Alex took us to the most wonderful restaurant to try their local meats and traditional dishes. It was ALL amazing, thoroughly cooked, and there was so much food we didn't finish it american-style, y'all. This tour was awesome, and we enjoyed every second of it. Highly recommended.

  • Driver Alex was very friendly and informative.
    The tour was fantastic and majestic, and more than I expected.

  • Very good experience. The Salt Cathedral is amazing!

  • This was a great experience for us. My friend and I were lucky in that we booked a group tour but no one else booked so we ended up having a private driver for the day. The driver Nestor was Spanish speaking which we were made aware of in advance so our communication with him was limited but he was very friendly, showed us around Zipiquira, made sure we knew all of the services included with our tickets, and took us to a great place for lunch afterwards. Would highly recommend, great price considering it included the tour ticket and private driver there and back.

  • The Salt Cathedral was well worth it - I expected it to be interesting, but I discovered it to be amazing! The tour inside the mine was informative and really helped me to understand what I was seeing. And the driver, Alex, was fabulous - he explained about what we were passing in Bogota during the drive and gave us a lovely tour of Zipaquira. If I ever get to return to Colombia, I'll want to do this again!!!

  • The driver, Alex, was great and knowledgeable about the country, Bogota, and Zipaquirá. It made the drive from Bogota go by very fast. The salt cathedral is a very interesting and amazing to the see work put in to it. Worth seeing in person. The guided tours are okay.

  • Had a great trip to the Salt Cathedral, Alex our guide/driver was fab. Picked us up and drove us safely to the town, telling info and answering questions the whole time. We were shown the town and salt mine, then taken back to the hotel.

    We had a private tour as no one else had booked, well looked after, prompt and spoke great English.

    Highly recommend for a great value tour - half the price of some others advertised!
