If you have never been to Bogota before, I highly recommend this tour. Great overview of the City and its history. Our tour guide Francisco was informative and fun. Our tour was conducted in English, which was great, since I do not speak Spanish. Have already recommended this tour to my friends!

Indroduction to Bogotá's historical center.
Great tour that covered pretty much all of La Candelaria and the historical center of Bogota. Francisco was not only very knowledgeable as a guide but very articulate too. The tour has some tough walking episodes due to the elevation and terrain of la Candelaria.

This was so much fun! Gerald was our tour guide. He was prepared for the weather with umbrellas for the party. He was great, and very knowledgeable about the area and history. The fruit and coffee tastings were delicious. Would highly recommend.

The reviews do not lie. Book a tour immediately!
Dec. 2020 • Solo
Exceeded my expectations. It was 3 hours of fun facts, local and national educational info, coffee (Gio's speciality jajaja) & fruit worship (because Colombia is a HAVEN due to such fertile land), extensive descriptions in English (Español is also available and a few other remnants from the multifaceted guides!) and a welcoming introduction to this wonderful city.

Gio & Geraldo have such vibrant, cultured, full, interactive personalities and even if you join a tour solo, you will be fully taken care of and made to feel comfortable. Bring some walking shoes/trainers (UK)/Sneakers (USA) and prepare to be WOWED by Bogotá. They are well connected and will go above and beyond to answer related or random questions. Much love from Donya & thanks for being my personal body guards from the street dog population. Jejeje.

Great tour for an introduction to the city
Nov. 2020
I had a great time with my guide Gio who walked me around this neighborhood of Bogotá and explained to me some things I would have never been able to guess (like the existence of an open-air illegal emerald market). The tour also included some great fruit and coffee tasting, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great 3H tour of la Candelaria - English speaking Guide
Nov. 2020 • Couples
We had a fantastic tour of the Candelaria/ Bogotá with Gioser today. The tour was well organised and had the perfect balance between knowledge/fun/discoveries. Gioser is a very knowledgable, friendly and polite guide - he clearly is passionated about what he does. Can’t wait to go on another tour with him! By the way the tour is very Covid friendly
