    Cristian, our driver was very professional. He arrived on time. The car, Volvo SUV was pristine and spotless. He took us to the park entrance and purchased our tickets (wrist bands). We agreed on the itinerary of the day and estimated the time to do the activities. We planned on meeting at a specific and where to meet after our activities of the day. Everything worked out perfectly. Next time, I will use the company again because of its professionalism, reliability, and service.

    We (me, my husband, and our 13 year old son) were very happy with this transport service. Our driver, Ramiro, was ready for us bright and early on New Years Day. I don't speak much Spanish, but we managed to communicate just fine and he was very nice. My family hiked some trails in Chicaque National Park (BEAUTIFUL!) and had lunch at the refugio before returning to the park entrance where Ramiro was waiting for us to bring us back to our hotel in Bogota. It was exactly what we needed and we were very happy with our experience! Thank you!

    I had an excellent experience with my driver (Walter). He was prompt, friendly, and gave me a lot of interesting information on the drive. I found this particular transport to be one of the cheapest available for a solo traveler and found it to be worth the money.

    Our driver met us promptly at 7am. He was very pleasant. He drove to the park, waited for us and drove back in some very taxing traffic.

    Wenn man der stickigen Enge von Bogota entfliehen möchte, ist der Chicaque Park ein schöner Tagesausflug. Auf der Fahrt nach Süden kann man sich ein gutes Bild über die Stadtentwicklung von Bogota und der angrenzenden Kommune Soacha machen. Viele neue Füßgängerbrücken, Radwege und Busliien und viele neue Sozialwohnungen zeigen die Bemühungen, die früher vernachlässigten Teile von Bogota zu erschließen. Der Park selber ist Biotop in einem tiefen Talkessel, welches durch gut ausgeschilderte Wege erschlossen ist. Ein Führer ist nicht erforderlin, aber man muss zunächst mehrere hundert Meter absteigen und anschließend geht es im Gelände munter auf und ab. Vor allem die Rückkehr mit dem erneuten Aufstieg zum Eingang auf 2.500 m kann Besuchern zu schaffen machen, die an die Höhe nicht gewöhnt sind. Die Wege erfordern keine Kletterkenntnisse, aber auf jeden Fall festes Schuhwerk und erhöhte Aufmerksamkeit, damit man auf den oft unregelmäßigen Steinen nicht abrutscht. Nach dem Abstieg wartet ein Ausflugslokal (el Refugio), in dessen Nähe outdoor-affine Bogotanos gerne zelten. In den umliegenden Wäldern sind aber kaum noch Besucher anzutreffen. Am Eingang kann man sich mit typischem Käse aus der Region stärken und am Rande des Parkplatzes liegt ein gemütliches Restaurant, das guten Kaffee serviert. Man kann mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln anreisen, aber das dauert durch das Umsteigen mehrere Stunden. Für mich war die Reservierung eines Individualtransports mit Fahrer eine gute Lösung

    This was an amazing adventure. My boyfriend and I ventured on by ourselves, but completed about 7.5 miles of trails within 4 to 4.5 hours. The scenery was beautiful, and we were able to get a close up of the clouds coming into the mountains. We were a bit worried because the park was very empty when we arrived early early at 8:30am, but as the day went on we saw a bunch of people along the trail. This park is safe, well-maintained, and great for the adventure-seekers. I would highly recommend this tour for everyone!

    What I would change is: make sure you go with a group of 3 or more or with a guide- there is nobody out there take only the bare neccessities- the lighter the better as it is all downhill, to start, then all uphill to exit with the increase in altitude there is a great decrease of oxygen- not for people with weak lungs or heart conditions make sure you have most of the whole day I suggest that they should always have a guide to go with you or have clearly marked maps to send with the people the directions are as the crow flies and take a lot longer than you would think. Other than this, it was a beautiful place to visit.
