Fue una experiencia muy grata y emocionante, Julio César, el guía, sabe mucho de la historia colonial y reciente de la región, fue impresionante saber que en lo que ahora son los andes antes era mar, ver el fósil en Villa de Leyva fue impresionante. Recomiendo este viaje pero si tienen la oportunidad de tomar el recorrido de 3 días no lo duden.

My husband and I took the Villa de Leyva trip on a Wednesday in April. We were told it could be cold and rainy, but the weather was perfect, sunny and 70 or so. The tour was indeed customized for us. We were picked up promptly at 7am the traffic leaving Bogota was horrible that time of day and we were later told its because of so many students going that direction to the universities at that time.
Our first stop was to sample the local specialty of arepa made with corn flour and local cheese very delicious. Next we went to the village of Chiquinquirá to visit a cathedral renown for a miracle concerning an image of the Virgin Mary. We then drove on to Raquira to do a little souvenir shopping and to have a traditional lunch at a restaurant on the main square. The town is very picturesque and has many shops that sell pottery made of the local red clay.
After lunch we stopped at El Infiernito Little Hell, a title given to the area by the Spanish colonists due to a number of phallic pillars at the site. It was a religious worship site for the indigenous people. It is now an archeological dig site belonging to a university. The site served the indigenous as a burial ground and observatory, helping them to create a calendar.
We arrived in Villa de Leyva about 2:00 and walked around the village, taking note of the fossils which the Spanish colonists incorporated into their buildings and pavements as decoration. We also stopped for a hot chocolate at the Museum of Chocolate an unexpected, but delicious, experience.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained the background of all the sites on the tour as well as information on the lifestyle of the farm people. The farmers have their own cultural practices, music and way of dressing.
It was a very full day and we felt that we were able to see a much more diverse side of Colombia by going on this tour.

This is a great trip and a way to visit an area that few people who visit Bogota get to see as it is a long one. It took 3 1/2 hours of driving through very interesting countryside to get to our first stop which was Todo Raquira, a very picturesque old Colonial town. Then to the pre-Columbian astronomical Muisca Observatory and next to Villa de Leyva, a very well-preserved Spanish colonial town. A great lunch was had in Villa de Leyva. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and a great companion. This wasn't a private tour, but I was the only one on it. We had torrential rain going back to Bogota, which was handled expertly by our driver.

This is a beautiful town and the landscapes you watch while getting there are breathtaking. I gave it 4 stars because the driver was like a "maniac on wheels". At some point when I saw him passing 4 cars in a curved two lanes highway I started to think "That's it". I am glad we came back alive.

Too far away from Bogota for a day trip

Villa de Leyva is definitely an enchanting village with an amazingly big plaza, it is worth seeing. However my tour guide, even if a very nice young man, was not prepared at all. He barely said few words about this place and if you pay for a private tour as I did you surely except much more information.

We cannot rate this your highly. Although our guide (Haiti) spoke English, she did not have a strong command of the language. It was very difficult to understand many of her words. She often didn't understand what we were asking (with repeated attempts, rephrased differently). See e-mail sent.
