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.
Next, we will visit the Monserrate Sanctuary, world famous pilgrimage site, by funicular (railway) or cable car.

"It's a very interesting overview of the city. The guide was very polite and knew a lot of things to explain about Bogotá. I think it's a very good option for those visiting Bogotá for the first time, because there are quite of to-do things and an overview is very good to know what actually worths a visit."
