This tour was amazing, well beyond what was expected. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided many interesting facts about this beautiful country. The photographs taken were breathtaking but still don't capture the cathedral. Only suggestion is to have time in the town
A thoroughly enjoyable trip to a fascinating place. The tour guide Luis Eduardo was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly.
Luis was our guide and he was very entertaining and full of historical facts. We enjoyed it very much.
Great Tour!!!1 The Guide was fantastic!!!!! The Salt Cathedral is unbelievable.....
My parents and I had a wonderful to to Zipaquira Salt Catheral in October, 2012. Our guide, Claudia Valencia Chaljub, was extremely knowledgeable, prompt in her pick up and return to the hotel, and professional in her tour. She spoke English very well which was helpful to my parents! Thank you!
One of the many beautiful sites close to Bogota. Fascinating and wondeful place!
There are only two salt cathedrals in the world - one in Wieliczka in Poland and one in Bogota. I had been to the one in Poland already so I didn't want to miss the one in Bogota. The tour was great and well worth the visit - it was done privately and with an excellent guide. This salt cathedral is a bit different as you walk down into the chapels and towards the altar (you have to take an elevator down in the one in Poland). The sheer size of the place is incredible and it's absolutely breathtaking. You can take your time strolling through the different chapels and small rooms before exploring the main area of the cathedral and the impressive altar. Well worth a visit!
This is definitely a must-see when visiting Columbia. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly with great English, but I did feel the tour was a little rushed. The bus picking us up was running late, so I feel this impacted on the tour somewhat.
Beautiful trip. The guide, Julio was excellent! Knowledgable, well prepared and well versed in Colombian themes. Personally he was charming and wanting to please.
I recommend this your to everone.
This tour is advertised as a 4 hour tour, but believe me, it is more like 6 hours. My driver was half an hour late in picking me up. He was supposed to come at 8:00 AM, but didn't come until 8:30. It took 2-1/2 hours each way to get to and from the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral due to extremely heavy traffic congestion leading and out of Bogota. We didn't get to the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral until 11:00 AM and we were rushed through it, spending only an hour there because I made it very clear to my guide and driver that I had to get back to join my escorted group tour for lunch. I didn't get back to Bogota until 2:30 PM when my group was finished with lunch. The bottom line is that if you book the morning tour to the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral, do not schedule any other activities for later that afternoon because you might not get back in time for them.
