Bogotá Small-Group Sightseeing Tour with Shopping at Zona Rosa

Explore the neighborhood of La Candelaria!

This small-group exploration of Bogotá offers participants an overview of the Colombian capital’s one-of-a-kind architecture, culture and history. Experience Bogotá’s top urban highlights as you sample its many museums and distinctive colonial neighborhoods on this intimate city tour.

Start with pickup from your Bogotá hotel at 9am, continuing on to La Plazoleta del Chorro de Quevedo, site of the city’s founding. Soak up the charming sights of this public square, flanked by colonial facades that contain a variety of shops and cafes.

Head next to the beautiful La Candelaria neighborhood, site of the Museo Casa de Moneda (Mint Museum), where you’ll take some time to visit its fascinating exhibits dedicated to the history of money and collections of antique coins (closed on Tuesdays). From there, head to the Botero Museum, which houses the works of renowned Colombian sculptor and painter Francisco Botero (also closed Tuesdays).

Continue on to the spacious Plaza de Bolívar, a massive square at the heart of Bogotá surrounded by the city’s key political and religious structures. Feel free to grab a snack at your own expense before checking out such notable buildings as the Palace of Justice, home of Colombia’s Supreme Court, and the National Capitol, which houses the country’s main legislative body. Follow your guide to the Primary Cathedral of Bogotá, constructed in the 19th century and then on to the Nariño Palace, residency for the president.

Finish the tour by climbing aboard your vehicle and heading to Bogotá’s north side, home to its more modern sections like Zona Rosa. Take some time to finish your trip by browsing the area’s many restaurants and shops before receiving a drop-off back at your Bogotá hotel.

Very good tour. I was alone with the guide, so I could spend more or less time at the places like my interess.

great tour if you have limited time in bogota. my guide johnny picked me up at my hotel and off we went to la candelaria. i was on this tour with one other tourist so we had a very personalized experience. we saw the gold museum and churches outside it. then we drove over to the botero museum and walked around the historical district. our guide was very knowledgeable and told us some interesting facts about the history of colombia and bogota. we ran into the president of colombia's three pet dogs during the tour outside of the presidential palace and we also met the next mayor of bogota during a feeding-pigeon-newspaper photo op on the plaza de bolivar. we ended the half-day tour with a coffee break- interesting fact: the only place in colombia that serves authentic colombian coffee is juan valdez.

PERFECT! The driver and guide arrived at my hotel on time to pick me up. The guide was knowledgeable, interesting with a gentle sense of humour. This tour was ideal for someone who did not have much time in Bogota; it gave me a good idea of the city's history. Loved it and will recommend it.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2014

Tour guide was great! But didn't have too much time for shooping

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2015

It was nice ! We were lucky we have done it just the two of us. No one else was in the group. The guide was nice - thats it ! The shopping was a joke, just left us at a tourist kind of shop that sells esmeralds and expensive local handicraft. We did not spend more than 10 minutes on it, and left to walk around the neighbourhood while the guides went to only God knows where ! and showed up 30 minutes later, when we are waiting for them at the trip van. If you have another option to do - go for it - The night city tour was really much better than this one.
