I really loved this tour. Santiago was the best tour guide I could ask for. His knowledge about the history of Bogotá and Colombia is very impressive, and I learned so much about Colombia’s past, present, and the direction of the future. I enjoyed walking around La Candelaria and learning about the different squares and buildings. The Gold Museum is very cool also and is tied directly into the history of the country. Go see this tour if you can!
