Get ready to enjoy the best of Bogota in one day! We are ready to show you the must-see historical spots along with some hidden gems, and, to make sure you enjoy our city to its fullest we will share our stories, history, culture, fun facts and more with you. 

We will pick you up at your hotel/bnb in a comfortable car, commence this private city tour by choosing between 2 activities:

  • Monserrate Hilltop:
    Why you should choose this activity?
    Monserrate has become one of the main tourist attractions in Bogota, gathering hundreds of visitors in one day. So if you choose this activity we will go there first, this is a little trick to avoid the hassle of going up and really enjoy this magical place and the crazy amazing view of the city.

  • Paloquemao Farmers Market:
    Why you should choose this activity?
    Feeling hungry for good, fresh exotic fruits? Then Paloquemao Farmers Market is for you. This is the best place in the city to enjoy the variety of Colombian fruits, topping it up with an incredible view of thousands of fresh flowers and vegetables.

During this private tour we will have the car with us at all time, allowing to cover more ground in less time. So, right after Monserrate/Paloquemao, departure to the historical center to the famous Bolivar Square. This is where our historical part beggins, we will tell you all about the moments that have shaped us to who we are today and explain the importance of the buildings surrounding this square. There is always time for a great picture! 

Then, go through the 7th street, crowded with talented street artists and local stores, traditionally known as the Royal Street. Once we reach the Santander Square, we will take you on a guided tour inside the Gold Museum, as it is always great to have someone in there to explain what these pre-hispanic figures mean, how they are related to our different ancestral cultures and how/why they used them. 

Would you like to have great traditional food? 

Now is time to take a break and go to Origen Bistro, an awarded restaurant known for its unique approach to local gastronomy and our personal favourite restaurant to have traditional dishes. We love to spoil our customers, so you will enjoy an open menu lunch that includes an appetizer, main dish, soft beverage and coffee. 

Continue this epic journey by walk or car to Chorro de Quevedo Square and follow us into the colorful streets of La Candelaria, admire the cobblestone floors and colonial houses and discover some hidden gems on the way.

To end this private tour properly, visit the Botero Museum which holds 123 pieces of Fernando Botero´s art. Get to know the story behind his success and understand why this artist and his point of view are so relevant.

Finally we will head back to you hotel/bnb. Feel free to ask about recommendations. We will love to give you great local advise on what to do next!

Remember, during this private tour we are here to answer all the questions you may have, give you great local advise of where to go, eat, dance etc. If you have any special request, let us know, we can always personalize this tour for you!
