If you really want a personalized experience you should go for the ‘rent a local friend option’ form Zebra Fisgona Tours.

Do not hesitate to book for a few days. You will have so much fun and really enjoy your vacation, especially as a solo traveller. Every tour day starts and ends at your hotel reception.

My new local friend Juanita showed the best of Bogota in a few days. She really knows where to go. You can customize the tour to your own interest. We did a lot of the nightlife of Bogota. During the day we went shopping or visit some of the touristic highlights. The tour starts and end at your hotel reception every day.

We had so much fun at all the restaurants, coffee-,beer- and wine tasting. The international salsa festival was the highlight of my tour with Juanita.

After this experience you do not want to leave Bogota!

Road trip from Bogota to Quito, Ecuador. 

I contact with Zebra Fisgona Tours by internet, they help me to arrange a lot of things even before I arrived Bogota, then after I arrived Bogota, with my “rented” local friend Juanita, we have a so so so great trip in Bogota and also in whole Colombia, even I asked her go with me continued our trip until we arrvied Ecuador Quito. On the way Juanita do a lot of things for us, because I am travelling by car, and Juanita not only very professional about tourism, she is quite professional about car too, so she is really help me a lot. She also know a lot about history and culture of Colombia, so she can answer every single question which I asked to her.

I am very often travelling in other countries with a local guide, Juanita definitely is one of the best, but she is not a guide at all, she is a good friend from very first we meet eachother in Bogota, and she will be my good friend for ever!

Alejandra effortlessly and professionally managed to put together a fantastic day of cool, casual experiences that gave me just the feel for the city that I was looking for without ever making me feel like a tourist. She was, she is in fact my friend in Bogotá! You won’t regret a day with Alejandra. This was one of my top three experiences in my two weeks in Colombia.

Best Day in Bogotá

Last Saturday I went out with Alejandra I Bogotá! It was the best day ever! In advance I could indicate what I wanted to see that day. Alejandra took me into town and told me a lot. Everything they told was really interesting! I think that’s because they respond very well to the wishes of the guests. I went with her to La Candelaria, Monserrate and Plaza Rosa. This was so special because everything was already decorated for Christmas. A new experience for both of us! I recommend Zebra Tours to everyone because they are so personal in their work and deliver quality!
