What people are saying about Bogotá

Great views, great guide

The East Hills Hike in Bogota isn't very common among tourists (but more and more among locals) - a big mistake, because it is a beautiful hike with a beautiful over Bogota on the top. The view is even more spectacular than from the Monserrate, where most of the tourists go. I can highly recommend this tour and especially my guide Felipe from Destino Bogota, who was a great company and has a deep knowledge. We started early on a Saturday ( I was picked up at my hotel at around 6am), and that made absolutely sense - in the late morning the route can become very busy.

the most amazing excursion. everyone was so nice and the driver was on time and very accommodating. if you're in Bogota you have to do this. its amazing
