Bogota In-Transit City Sightseeing Tour with Airport Transfer

After your local guide picks you up from El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá, you’ll enjoy a private, panoramic tour of the city, staring downtown in the historical district of La Candelaria. Pass old houses, churches and small shops on the narrow streets, admiring the Spanish Colonial and Baroque architectural styles of the beautiful buildings.

Your private guide will take you to Plaza de Bolívar to see the city’s top landmarks, including government buildings and historical monuments. View the Prime Cathedral, the National Capitol, Casa 20 de Julio, Liebano Palace (the mayor’s office) and the Justice Palace before catching a glimpse of the Presidential Palace – the Casa de Nariño.

With a bit of Columbian history and culture under your belt, you can decide next whether to have lunch at a typical Colombian restaurant or visit Monserrate Sanctuary. You’ll either enjoy Colombia’s gastronomic diversity as you dine, or catch the best panoramic views over Bogotá – following a climb or funicular tram ride to the top of Monserrate.

If there’s enough time, complete you tour with a visit to the Botero Museum to see fascinating works of art by Colombia’s most renowned artist – painter and sculptor Fernando Botero. Admire works by world-famous artists, including Monet and Picasso, from Botero’s private collection. As an alternative, your guide will take you to a shopping mall for some great finds before returning you to the airport.

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

The tour lady( Yuri) was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our flight was delayed and the wait on the immigration line was 2 hours but she stood and waited until we finally got to her. Took us to all the places we needed to see to have an Idea of the history of this beautiful country
