While we thought the morning rain would dampen our possibility or visiting Montserrat, it later cleared and was perfect Great teleferique ride up into the hills Spectacular view - breathtaking visibility of the whole of Bogota. Only criticism being that the price of the teleferique...More

‘Everyone’ says you have to go here. They are right and the views are spectacular. It’s amazing how vast Bogota is and you really grasp it from up here.

Very inexpensive and easy ticketing process to take a cablecar ride up to the church. Fantastic views, although important to check the weather before going, otherwise you may be staring into a sea of fog. Main building has a large church although there are food...More

Worth the excursion, the views from the top of Monserrate are spectacular. I rode the cable car up and walked down. The walk down was challenging so I would only recommend if you are in good physical condition. Some sections are steep and the stairs...More

How could you not see the best view of the city? Day or night (Sunday excludes nights, closes at 6p) gives great views. Landscaping is incredible. Bring the good camera! We saw a hummingbird feeding at one of the tropical plants.

On average I would say about 45 minutes. It’s easier on your knees to climb it than it is to walk down due to the steepness and uneven steps. I would recommend taking the cable car or funicular down.

I could not see any though but it goes up and down in every 20-25mins. Funicular is much better to come back. Dont waste your time in queue for cablecar.

Hi Lisa and thanks for your question. I assume so as our guide for the day already had our tickets when he picked us up at the hotel. We booked a guided half-day tour with Impulse Travel. Was really worth the money. John
