5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Maria who picked me up from the airport and David my personal tour guide were both terrific. Maria was waiting for me as soon as I exited customs and took me straight to Monserrat where David took over. David was incredibly knowledgable and personable, telling me many stories about the city in a thoroughly entertaining way. He also tailored the tour to suit things I was particularly interested in, stopping for a tradititional Colombian lunch and coffee. We covered a lot of ground in 5 hours and was always entertained thanks so David. Maria then picked us up and drove me back to the airport in plenty of time for my next flight. If you have a long layover in Bogota I strongly suggest getting out of the airport and doing this tour.

Very personable tour, excellent time management. Got to visit highlights of Bogota at a limited time. I only had 36 hours in Bogota and requested that the tour operator picked me up at the airport and drop me off at my hotel so I could catch the final futbol game between Argentina and Chile... David showed us the La Candelaria area we stopped by for some Chica, Botero Museum, Monseratte, we stopped by for lunch note that lunch is not included, your own expense. I'd highly recommend this tour.

It was a great tour of Bogota. Luis was the best guide ever. I wasn't feeling so well, but he helped out and I felt much better after some time.

We had a great time. Our tour guide Luis Eduardo Suarez was awesome. We will definitely go back to Colombia and have him take us around. It was short but it was worth the price. Beautiful city and great food.

My tourguide, Luis went out of his way to make this tour extra special. I had the opportunity to get a sample of the ''real'' Bogota in the short time I was there. I highly recommend this tour if you have a layover in Bogota. This tour is well worth the money.

The Bogota Private City Tour with Round-Trip in Bogota was amazing. The tour guide showed a lot of historical knowledge. Also, I was able to choose which places I'd like to visit. My arrival flight was delayed and the guide waited for me. I recommend. Wendell Moreira
