Bogota

Join a city tour of Bogota to visit memorable and relevant sights of Bogota with a quick, half day journey through the city accompanied by an expert guide with wide historical and present knowledge of Colombia.

We'll begin with a visit to the Monserrate Sanctuary, located within the imposing Eastern Hills of the city, at an altitude of 3150 meters above sea level. Ascending to the top of the mountain on a cable car, we will reach the most notorious pilgrimage point of the city and perhaps the most incredible lookout spot of the capital below. This is the best spot to grasp the historical and spatial contextualization of the city.

Following that, we will descend towards the picturesque cobbled streets of La Candelaria. We will visit the Botero Museum which keeps works of the eccentric artist Fernando Botero - who has become an icon of Colombian contemporary art. We will also stop at Chorro de Quevedo and appreciate the diverse contrast that the downtown historical center offers, in order to properly understand Colombian history.

After the walking tour in La Candelaria, we will reach Plaza de Bolívar; the historical epicenter of Bogotá. It is here that administrative and governmental buildings - those that have been icons of the historical processes carried out in our country - surround the main square of the Plaza. We will have the chance to enter the Prime Cathedral.

Finally, we will cross La Candelaria’s border by el Eje Ambiental, where we will become immersed in the most impressive collection of indigenous gold in the world at the Gold Museum. As you leave, you'll have the chance to shop at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander.

      Bogota City Tour & Villa de Leyva day trip

      We did two different private tours with Destino Bogota during our recent visit. We had a great experience both days. For the city tour, we had Andres as our tour guide. He was amazing. Very punctual, knowledgeable and flexible during the to...ur. For the day trip to Villa de Leyva, Fabian was our guide. It was an unforgettable trip. The drive was beautiful, we got to see everything that we were told and had lunch at a very good restaurant. Fabian was also friendly and very knowledgeable. Both drivers were very good and friendly. As Colombians that reside in the USA, we highly recommend this company to every one. We also want to thank Paula Duarte for helping us with the booking and answering all our questions.

      Great city tour

      My guide, Fabiano, and our driver Hector were just great. Fabiano is very knowledgeable and the tour was a nice mix of driving and, mostly, walking. The gold museum, the artist Botero's museum, the old city and the new, and the government a...reas were all covered and covered well. Bogota is impressive, booming, and well worth taking a tour like this. For $100 (I also tipped but didn't have to), I recommend this tour without hesitation. Read full review
