We were warmly greeted by our guide. He got us to the train on time and was there to greet when we got back. The train ride was a wonderful experience of singing and laughter. The salt mines was very interesting how ever we never understood a word the guide said but the mine was impressive on its own. There was plenty of time for nice lunch in a Mexican restaurant. All in all was fun day
This was a wonderful outing, but because we were staying so near the station of Usaquen, we saw our 'guide' for five minutes at the beginning and end of the day. Also, he spoke no English which made communication difficult. You must have made a lot of money on our booking!
A very good opportunity to see the Colombian countryside. Zipaquira was a very interesting city. It was also very interesting to see the Salt Cathedral as this is one of the most popular tourist sites in Colombia. However, be aware that although it is called a "tourist" train, most of the tourists are local people (not foreign tourists from other countries) and most of the people operating this speak only Spanish. I can converse in Spanish, but it might be harder for someone who doesn't.
Our driver did not show up at end of tour to take back to the hotel had to pay taxi back.
We were picked up and dropped off from our hotel promptly. Our drivers were very courteous, friendly and safe. We enjoyed the train ride and seeing the Colombian countryside. We hope that in the future, the tourist train company would have better instructions on meeting times/trip. We thought that we were catching the train back from Zipaquira to Cajica. We ended up rushing to the bus meeting point only to find out that we had one more hour because we were taking the bus instead of the train to Cajica.
Very well organised, picked up on time and all went according to the description.
Muy buena experiencia y excelente atencion
This tour was great. Fun and very entertaining.
We had a good day. There were some concerns, however. First, the company was nearly impossible to reach by phone to reconfirm the trip. We were unsure until the morning of the excursion if we would be picked up at all, and were making plans to take a taxi.
Furthermore, we were surprised that we were taken to Usaquen, because La Sabana is closer to the hotel. We must have spent 40 minutes each way in the car.
The train was comfortable and the scenery interesting. We had a good walk in Zipaquira with a guide. The next stop, for lunch, was disappointing. We had no guidance about where to eat - no restaurant names or map of the town - so we just got pizza. This could be improved.
Columbia is trying to build up its tourism; attention to details is one way to
The train was fun but it was the slowest train in the world. It wasn’t a steam train either. I think Sunday is steam train day. On Saturday we had a diesel. When you get to Zipaquirá buses take you on to cathedral (buy Tix on the train). After tour bus takes u back to train. Very brief at Cathedral
