Round-trip Independent Rail Tour to Zipaquirá from Bogotá on Scenic Steam Train

Bogotá, Colombia

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The train ride seemed much, much longer than the 3 hours each way - partly due to the train never getting above about 40 MPH. The "delicious snacks" offered for purchase were standard snack machine-type things that were brought around by people working on the train. Probably what I could have really done without was the roaming musicians - however, there were a few people in my train car that really seemed to enjoy them, so it is just my taste. The Salt Cathedral was really little more than cross after cross after cross and then finally some actual sculpture - there was a nativity scene, a few angels, etc. and they were well done.

When we were taken into the little town for lunch with stopped right in front of a restaurant where an attempt was made to herd everyone in to this particular restaurant. I declined and just roamed around on my own and found a different place for lunch. The instructions on getting back to the train and the time of the departure were unclear. One guide told me we would leave in 2 hours, another told me three.

Upon return to Bogota the driver who was to have picked me up forgot about me and fortunately I found someone with a phone that could get reception in Bogota and they called your company and the driver did ultimately show up and get me back to my hotel.
