Full description
A staff member from the company will meet you at the hotel to take you on a tour around the historic center of the city. From here your first stop will be to Plaza de Bolivar, where you will walk along the streets and take a close look at the most important buildings of the city. You will explore buildings such as the National Capitol, which is the center of the country's legislative life; Casa de los Comuneros; Casa de Nariño, which is the Presidential house; and the Santa Clara Church Museum. The tour also includes a visit to the Gold Museum, which exhibits about 34,000 pieces of metalwork from various Hispanic cultures. You will also visit the House Museum Quinta de Bolivar, which formerly belonged to Simon Bolivar. The tour will then continue to the iconic symbol of Bogota, the Monserrate Hill, which rises up to 3,152 meters above sea level. Once having ascended to the top of the hill, you will visit the sanctuary where you will find the statue of the Lord of Miracles. This peak will provide you with the best platform to enjoy the views of Bogota.

Seen a lot in a short time of Bogotá. Highly recommended. I would have stayed in the gold museum a little longer, but because of COVID, we were only allowed to be there for 1 hour. Our guide Andres told a lot, heard a lot, that I didn't know about the original inhabitants of Colombia. Pace was good

Unmissable Monserrate. You can have a complete view of Bogota from the hill while the guide tells you the history of all of Colombia for the last 500 years. Then in the city you see the cathedral and the colonial part, you feel in the last century, spectacular! And finally, the fifth by Simón Bolívar and Manuelita Saenz is like reliving the Netflix series. Great!!

My tour guide and driver were great! I enjoyed the tour however I think it was way overpriced! The tour took about 3.5 hours (including pickup time and drive) . I could easily go to Monserrat and La candelaria myself they are both very touristic places located in the city and it would probably cost me no more than $20 total (maybe not even). I paid $110. Considering the fact that round trip air ticket to San Andres cost me $108 this price for the tour was pretty ridiculous. I didnt realized that time so I booked but later I found same tour three times cheaper with other agencies I wish I do more research prior booking. I paid less for Villa de Leyva tour with other stops which was 13 hours tour. So price was definitely a rip off.
