Bogota

Our full day Bogota city tour is the most comprehensive way to see the bests sights and attractions in Bogota while accompanied by an expert guided versed in a wide historical and current 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.

Once back on the ground we will travel into the past, going directly to the time of the Latin American independence by visiting the house of Colombia’s liberator, La Quinta de Bolívar. Then, back in the present time, we will get ourselves familiar with the student atmosphere within the campus of Universidad de los Andes.

Continuing the tour, we will go down stream following the Eje Ambiental, witnessing the effort this city has made to recover the river that originally gave it life, through one of the most famous urbanistic projects in Latin America, carried out by architect Rogelio Salmona. Following the river San Francisco towards Jimenez Avenue, we will dive into the most impressive collection of indigenous gold pieces in the world at the Gold Museum. At the exit, you will have the chance to shop at the handicrafts market at Parque Santander.

Next, we will enter the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria and wander the picturesque cobbled streets that hold more then 400 years of history. We will visit the Botero Museum, which features works of the eccentric artist who has become an icon of Colombian contemporary art. We will make a stop at Chorro de Quevedo and appreciate the diverse contrasts that the historical center offers in order to understand Colombian history.

After a lunch break at an authentic local restaurant, we will reach Plaza de Bolívar, historical epicenter of Bogotá. The main square is surrounded by the administrative and governmental buildings that have been icons of the historical processes carried out here. We will also have the chance to enter the Prime Cathedral.

Finally we will hop in a car and drive towards the north of the city, having a panoramic sight of the International Centre, La Macarena Neighborhood and National Park. The final destination, will be the cozy neighborhood of Usaquén, which holds in its narrow streets the best weekend flea market in town.

    Serviço excepcional e diferenciado!!!

    Encontrei a empresa aqui no TripAdvisor quando procurava uma empresa que realizasse city tours por Bogota e Cartagena. O site é muito bem e explica tudo que é necessário. Tive algumas dúvidas, que resolvi por e-mail com a consultora Paula, ...sempre muito cordial e esclarecendo todas as dúvidas. O passeio oferecido pela empresa é fantástico. O Grand City Tour Bogota nos levou para conhecer muitos lugares da cidade. O guia Alejandro está de parabéns, realizou um trabalho impecável, muito atencioso, prestativo e competente, além de conhecer muito bem a cidade. Nos ensinou muito sobre esta maravilhosa cidade. O Grand City Tour Cartagena também foi excelente, mostrando todos os lados desta incrível cidade. Também foi excelente o trabalho do guia Martin, que não deixou passar nenhum aspecto da cidade, conhecia muito bem todos os locais visitados. Muito importante destacar que oferecem um serviço especializado, estávamos somente em duas pessoas, assim tivemos total atenção dos guias e pudemos aproveitar imensamente os passeios. Recomendo a empresa para quem quiser um serviço atencioso e diferenciado quando visitar a Colômbia Read full review

    Had an excellent time

    Went on this tour with a buddy of mine and had a fantastic time. We were picked up right on time in the lobby of the JW in the business district of Bogota. We then went up to the top of Monserrate in a comfortable air conditioned van. Our t...our guide Paula spoke great english and was very kind and knowledgeable about the area. She took care of the tickets to the top and then even arranged for us to try some of the local tea at one of the shops near the church. We then went to the gold museum where we were guided around some of the major pieces of art including the golden raft, which we then saw numerous replicas of throughout our trip in Colombia. Lastly we were led through the streets near the campus area and shown the city square, the presidential residence, and many of the university buildings. All in all it was an A+ experience and worth every penny. Read full review

    Superior, Intersting tour of the city, Monserrat's and environs

    We had an amazing tour guide, Daniel, who took us to beautiful and interesting places; we had a great time! Daniel was very well informed and has a strong background in history and an understanding of how the past is important to the presen...t. What was good about Daniel too, is that he lived in the States for several years so he could tie everything together for us in very good and clear English. Read full review

    Wonderful Grand City Tour of Bogota!

    My husband and I went on the Grand City Tour of Bogota last week. Our tour guide was Natalia. The tour was amazing and Natalia is one of the nicest people we have ever met. The whole tour felt like a long time friend was showing us around t...heir home city. The tour was amazing, we saw all the major attractions in Bogota including Monserrate, Candelaria, Gold Museum, Botero Museum etc. Had lunch at this amazing place in Candelaria. Their driver, Maria was also really great. Overall, a great tour and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see all of Bogota's major attractions in one day. Read full review
