This tour was a lovely way to spend the day. The Salt Cathedral has voice guides so you can tour at your own speed. The guide provides insight into the history of Colombian during the square tour and the lunch is a great way to try a traditional Colombian lunch. This tour is a must!

The Salt Cathedral was spectacular and Independence Square was definitely worth seeing. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable but not very talkative, so we had to ask a lot of questions. Overall good experience, but other group tours may be a better value.

Takes an hour to get to the town...

Takes an hour to get to the town. Not a lot of time to actually see the square. timing was based on getting to the Salt Cathedral. This is a bit cave like which did not appeal to me. Was on a tour for over an hour. You then have double back to get out. Big religious oriented lots of crosses. Afterwards I was not sure where to meet the guide and had to come back to the main exit. Watch there are 2 parking lots, one being lower. Afterwards we had an included lunch beer extra. I actually enjoyed the lunch. The driver was not English speaking but the guide was. They were both quite pleasant

Great day trip if you've already spent some time in Bogota. It does take a while, though, so not ideal if you only have 1 day in the city.

The tour starts with a pickup from your hotel, and away you go to The Salt Cathedral! Our guide was Andrea and we had a good conversation throughout the tour. Lunch was provided in Zipaquira and it was good local fare. This tour is recommended!

We were picked up from our hotel in Bogota by 9 am and we reached Zipaquira within an hour. The tour in the Salt mine and Cathedral was in English and it included a movie and light show. Total it took 2 hours to complete the tour and on our way back we stopped at the Main square. We also enjoyed the Vegetarian lunch provided at a restaurant in Zipaquira itself. We returned to Bogota by 3 pm. It was a worthwhile tour and well arranged. The guide and driver both were very helpful.

, Nov 2017
Pros: 1. This cathedral is AMAZING and well worth a visit if you are coming to Bogota plus, it will break up your stay in Bogota 2. Guides were very nice people Cons: 1. Showed up 30 minutes late. I was dog dead tired and exhausted, but I still showed up on time. If I had known they would be that late, I could have slept another 30 minutes. They did not proactively reach out and tell me how late they would be either, so we just sat their waiting for them to arrive 2. They took a lot of pictures of us. To be fair, they asked if this was okay in the beginning and we said sure. However, at lunch, they kept taking pictures of us eating and I said I didn't want anymore pictures, but they kept taking them. I highly recommend the cathedral itself - but I am mixed on this particular tour group.
