Gabriella was very good at explaining the history and the background. She was a wealth of knowledge. All the stops we went to as well to experience the local flavours of Bogota was amazing. I learned a lot and it was a great experience.

Except for loosing track of part of our group (it was big!). The walk was great! Loved tasting the local fruits and drinks and seeing the sites.

The tour was fine in general, but it felt more like sitting and eating or drinking stuff than actually walking a lot. Sure food is part of the culture, but it almost felt like a culinary tour. Also very much Candelaria centered. I was hoping to see more of Bogota. Maybe a missperception. The guide talked very fast almost as if she was trying to speed up the whole tour which made it difficult to understand her.
