What You Can Expect

Bogotá Small-Group Sightseeing Tour with Shopping at Zona Rosa

Explore the neighborhood of La Candelaria!

Your small-group tour of Bogotá, Colombia’s largest city, begins with pickup from your hotel. Start your route at La Plazoleta del Chorro de Quevedo, a public square where the capital was founded. Located in the historical city center, the red brick plaza is bordered by colonial buildings and surrounded by shops and cafés.

Then follow your guide on foot through the colonial neighborhood of La Candelaria, where you will visit several landmarks. Museo Casa de la Moneda, the Mint Museum, features exhibits on the history of money with collections of coins, machinery and tools (closed on Tuesdays). At the Botero Museum you’ll find works by the famous Colombian painter and sculptor, Fernando Botero (closed on Tuesdays).

Midway through your 4-hour tour, stop by Bolívar Square where you can purchase a snack (own expense). Located in the heart of original Bogotá, the enormous square is bordered by important government and religious buildings. View the Palace of Justice, which houses the Supreme Court, and see the National Capitol — the seat of the Colombian Congress. Your guide will point out the 19th-century Primary Cathedral of Bogota, the largest in Colombia, and show you the Nariño Palace, seat of the presidency.

Afterward, re-board your vehicle and continue to the north of the city to glimpse some of the newer suburbs, ending in Zona Rosa where two main shopping centers and many restaurants are located. You’ll have the opportunity to browse the shops or be dropped off at your hotel first if you prefer.
