    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Mount Monserrate, Carrera 2 E No. 21-48 Paseo Bolívar, Bogota Colombia

    Your day will start when your driver picks you up from your hotel, to take you to your first stop: the Monserrate Sanctuary, located within the imposing Eastern Hills of the city, at an altitude of 3150MASL. Ascending to the top of the mountain on a cable car, you will reach the most famous pilgrimage point of the city, and perhaps the most incredible lookout spot in the capital. This is the best spot to grasp the historical and spatial contextualization of the city.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Barrio La Candelaria, Calle 10 # 0 15 Bogota, Colombia Llegando por avenida circunvalar preferiblemente., Bogota 111711 Colombia

    To finalize the city tour, you will cross La Candelaria’s border to become immersed in the most impressive collection of indigenous gold artifacts at the Gold Museum. As you leave, you'll have the chance to go shopping at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Plaza de Bolivar, Between Carreras 7 and 8 at Calle 10, Bogota Colombia

    After the walking tour in La Candelaria, you will reach Plaza de Bolívar. It is here where administrative and governmental buildings - that have been icons of the historical processes carried out in our country - surround the main square of the Plaza.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), Carrera 6 No.15-88, Bogota 110321 Colombia

    To finalize the city tour, you will cross La Candelaria’s border to become immersed in the most impressive collection of indigenous gold artifacts at the Gold Museum. As you leave, you'll have the chance to go shopping at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira, Carrera 6 Calle 1 Parque De La Sal, Zipaquira Colombia

    As soon as the city tour is over, you will be taken to the charming town of Zipaquirá where you will visit the Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral. This is a place where the mysticism of Muiscas (indigenous culture), Catholic symbolism, and contemporary engineering, came together to take visitors on a magical tour through tunnels and vaults of impressive sizes.
    On this tour, you will enter an old salt mine that was adapted to become a cathedral. Here, artists and sculptors have manipulated the materials found underground to create original representations of Catholic symbols. Learn from an expert guide about this process and the meanings behind the artworks you will see on tour.


    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Zipaquira, Zipaquirá, Cundinamarca, Colombia

    Then, you will head to the colonial village of Zipaquirá, where you’ll walk through the main square that is surrounded by several buildings that have been declared national monuments. Here, you will taste some delicious baked foods of the region and check out the local handicraft market. Lastly, you will head back to Bogotá where you will be driven to your hotel.
