This was a great tour and experience. The pick up instructions were clear and the tour was on time. Everything was explained clearly when we arrived at the Salt Cathedral and we had more than enough time to experience the site. Our tour guide then drove us to the town of Zipaquira and gave us some history on the area. Lastly, our tour guide happily dropped us off at Monserrate as we had a tour at that site which was extremely helpful. Highly recommend!

The Salt Cathedral is a worthy visit for any visitor to Colombia. Incredible ingenuity and design. We spent just over 2 hours at the salt mine which was plenty of time there. Traffic to/from Bogota is snail paced and aggressive. I'm appreciative that our driver didn't cut back on time spent at the salt mine or at the nearby Zipaquirá village. The 6-hour tour was actually 8 hours (I was the first pick up and last drop off). The driver handled the traffic with poise and did not seem hurried to drop us off. Pick up location was exactly as provided, driver showed up on time and knew my name, vehicle was clean.

Very Unique and Interesting. Must See!

One in the world excursion. Very meaningful, especially if Christian/Catholic. Combination of the Stations of the Cross and a cave adventure. Only downside was traffic, especially back into Bogota. Outbound drive was around an hour (tolerable). Inbound was closer to two hours (not so fun). Tour guide was great - traffic wasn't his fault! Small group size (4 people) was nice.

The Salt Cathedral at Zipaquirå in a MUST do if you are visiting Bogotá. Onle an hour and a half from the city this magnificent Cathedral built in the guts of a salt mine is a must see during your trip.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2019
Dear, indeed the cathedral is a MUST SEE because there are few structures in the world like this and the concept around it is very interesting. Thanks for taking our tours, remember that you can mix it with other attractions next time, this so that you have an added value and know the surroundings. Thank you very much for your trust, we hope to serve you again.

My roommate and I had a great time on this trip! Alex was great and knew a lot about the history of the town and providing suggestions for your trip. The only thing I'd recommend to the group is spending a little less time in the city, so you have more time in the actual caves. We had enough time to see everything we wanted to, but it was just a bit rushed. Finally, you end the trip with some awesome food, so all in all it was a good experience.

Amazing place!!! I did not expect it to be so big. This visit is a must, the tour they give you is comprehensive and not long. I reccomend to do it as early as possible, it gets crowded after 11 AM. The driver was very nice and accomodagting, he picked us up at the hotel and left us there at the end. I would reccomend this tour to everyone who visits Bogota.
