A Day in Bogota

Had a wonderful private tour with guide Juan Carlos and driver George. After a hotel pickup when headed up to Monserrate for spectacular views of Bogota and tour or the religious shrines. It was then on to the Gold Museum, La Candaleria and Bolivar Square. The tour was well paced with a variety of stops to see Bogota in different ways. There is no lunch break so you will have to catch something on the go or even head to McDonalds after the tour is over. Once making it through Bogota traffic it was back to my hotel after a full day. As we drove through the city Juan Carlos pointed out many of the cities districts schools and hospitals to give me a great feel for the city. When in La Candaleria in the Bottero Museum I even saw my first Picasso paintings. I enjoyed the part of the tour which had us walk through the city, giving a good sense of the spirit of Bogota.

We had a great time visiting the Museo de Oro, amazing to see all the gold and the stories that went along with it. We took the funicular up and down the Mount Monserrate rather than the cable car because it was less of a wait time. What an amazing view! Jorge, our guide took us to La Candelaria and we saw some beautiful murals as well as introduced us to native foods and fruits of Columbia. I would definitely recommend this tour.
