What people are saying about Bogotá

Tremendous experience, but it took longer than estimated. This was partially due to stopping to take in the beautiful scenery and take pictures and partially due to the age of the older participants (ourselves!). The guide (Nick) was great - he didn't pressure anyone to pick up the pace. It was truly at a pace you are comfortable with. Due to the amount of time it took to complete the hike, lunch was delayed. This wasn't a big issue, The food seemed to have been prepared for our originally estimated arrival time and "kept warm" until we arrived. If there was a negative to the tour - this was it.

Great variety of coffee flavours and preparation methods. We tried 4 different beans made with an aeropress, Turkish coffee maker, pour over, and coolest of all, a coffee Siphon. The cafe space itself was super stylish and staff did a great job explaining the whole process

Awesome tour to experience the Candelaria neighborhood! Miguel was a fantastic tour guide, he answered so many of my questions and was just really friendly. Highly recommend the tour!

A great way to see La Candelaria and not just look at the amazing streetart but also get an insight in its cultural and societal background story. 10/10

Great experience if you want to „escape“ the city for a day and see the nature near Bogotá.
