“The city tour was great. My private guide was just amazing, very friendly, and very knowledgeable. He showed everything I had to see and he adapted his planning to my desires. I really recommend David Cinquegranelli if you can select your own guide. ...Aroun D., Switzerland – See more reviews
What To Expect
The tour begins at Plaza de Bolívar where we will see the Prime Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, the National Capitol, Casa 20 de Julio, Liévano Palace (the Mayor's Office) and the Justice Palace. Then, we will walk through the streets of La Candelaria, the historical district, and observe its colonial architecture and the district's different attractions, such as the Botero Museum*, the Colon Theater, the Chorro de Quevedo and the Eje Ambiental. The next destination of the tour will be the Gold Museum, home of the world's largest pre-Hispanic gold work collection, which is just a short stroll away.
After lunch in a typical Colombian restaurant, you will then be taken to the Monserrate Sanctuary, world famous pilgrimage site, by funicular (railway) or cable car. It rises 3152 meters (around 10341 ft) above sea level and happens to be the best place to enjoy a full view of the capital. We will continue our tour in the Quinta de Bolivar, home of the well-known Simon Bolivar, liberator of the Andean countries. On your way out, there will be a brief stop to learn about the emerald process. We will then drive to the northern part of the city, passing by the Planetarium, Bullring, International Center, National Park, Lourdes Plaza, Zona G, the Financial District, the 15th Avenue and the Parque de la 93. Finally, the tour ends with a visit to the quaint and picturesque sector of Usaquén, located at the northern part of the city.
At the end of the excursion, you will be dropped off at your hotel or at a convenient place within the urban area.
