We made this tour with a guide of Venezuela origin, speaking clear and very understandable English, it would have been better if it had given some more information about Colombia in general, because, commentary wise, this is not a tour which may last 1 h 30. Montserrate Hill is a must go place especially with its breathtaking landscape surrounding it. Satisfied overall

Monserrate is very beautiful and so is the way to get there. After reaching the top, I felt a little lack of dedicating more time to get to know the church, the tour is more focused on the view.

They said that in Colombia they could rob us and they were referring without a doubt to this activity. A two-hour tour in which 50 minutes are in line to go up, 50 minutes in line to go down and 20 minutes of two paragraphs of explanation from Wikipedia. It's a scam, do it only if you want the experience of being robbed.
