My mom and I really enjoyed the trip! Our guide John G. was amazing. He knew so much about the history. We definitely recommend Hansa tours and especially with John G.

Marcelo our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and obviously has a passion for everything Colombian. I would highly recommend him, and our driver Andres.

We had a wonderful time visiting and learning about the Salt Cathedral! Our guide Lina did a great job explaining the history and building of the cathedral. She guided us through all 14 Stations of the Cross and the other areas underground, giving us time to absorb the atmosphere and take photos. On the way back to Bogota, we stopped in the main square of Zipaquira for a short photo opportunity. This was a very enjoyable tour and Lina made it one of the highlights of our trip!

Easily the most fascinating tour I've taken in a long time. My English speaking guide was very knowledgeable and gave me tons of information bout the salt mines and the building of the cathedral. I would highly recommend this tour. If it's run by Hansa Tours, ask for Jurgen to be the guide!
