You can only book the tour online. I believe the tours open up online at 6 pm two days before... So for example, a Thursday tour would open at 6 pm on Tuesday. ;)

At the tour, the guide explained that the tips received was their salary and recomended 35 to 50,000 COP. I paid 40,000. It is done discreetly so pay what it is worth to you. Well worth 50,000 if you can afford it.
