I am a solo female traveler and this was my first time in South America. My guide was Andres and he was very knowledgeable. After the hotel pick-up around 9, we started the tour at the Monserrate. It was still early, so we were able to avoid the long queues. The cable car (funicular) ride was one of the highlights of this day trip for me and once we got to the top, I was treated to a great view of the city. Since this was a private tour, Andres asked about what I was interested to see or do, and personalized the tour. I had my taste of arepas, avena, arequipe de cafe, empanadas, gulupa, and lulo (the latter are fruits). We explored La Candelaria- Plaza Bolivar, a market square, Museo Botero, Callejon del Embudo, and Plaza Chorro de Quevedo. The private tour was capped with chicha prior to my hotel drop off. I think showing me all the "best" street arts and the stories behind how this movement came to be in Bogota was a bonus to this tour. Muchas gracias, Gran Colombia Tours!

Our guide Luis was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It was a very informative and fun tour for us!
The company did not contact us about the tour until we reached out to them the night before the tour.if we had not reached out, the tour would not have happened. It was very frustrating and the company needs to sort out the administrative part of their tours. The tour itself was wonderful and our guide- Alejandro- was very knowledgeable and entertaining. You can tell that Alejandro loves the city and he took great pride in showing us around. We got to see parts of the city we never would have seen. It was definitely a highlight of our trip.
Great private tour from Maria, really skilled but doesn't overdo it with the information. It was a bit like visiting the city with a friend. Great coca tea and coffee tasting on local cafés, great support and info via WhatsApp, thank you so much!
Our tour guide Gina was absolutely fantastic! She has such a great energy and is very passionate about her work! She is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions! We never felt rushed the entire tour. I wish I was in Colombia longer so I could take more tours with Gina!

Me gusto mucho la experiencia y el trato de la guía, los felicito. Recomendableeeee
A comprehensive and very interesting tour. I could have a good glampse of the city including entrance to museums. My guide Julian showed an extensive knowledge of colombian history and conversation with him could reach any topic. No need to say he was always in disposition to help me even when not included in the tour agenda
I had a great time taking 3 different tours with Gran Colombia Tours. On each tour, I was the only client and I was given special attention. Tour guides Marissa and Natalia were especially helpful. The cost of each tour was also very reasonable (about half of what Expedia's vendors wanted to charge). I can't recommend Gran Colombia tours highly enough. Kurt K., Phoenix, AZ
I really enjoyed the tour. Thank you so much.
