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.
perfect tour in all aspects
Wonderful opportunity to experience new things. You can tell how much work went into making the tour as informative and fun as it was. Thank you so much Paula!

Started on time and the guide was really nice, she knew really about Colombian history
The tour was really interesting and varied. Our guide was informative and enthusiastic.
A must go tour when you in Bogota. They speak and explain well in English the history of the city plus free tasting of coffee and fruits. You tip at the end. I highly recommend the walking tour in La Candelaria. Great job guys!
