Great tour. Our guide, Juan, was knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day. The Laguna was awesome with a special park guide to tell the history. The Salt Cathedral was much larger than expected. Wear comfortable shoes and prepare for lots of weather changes rain, then sun, then rain again.

This was mine and my husband's first time visiting Bogota Colombia and it was incredible! We stayed in the city of Bogota but also wanted to explore other areas outside of the city. We chose the Salt Cathedral and Laguna de Gautavita tour because it took us well outside the city and because all reviews we read regarding this tour were very positive. Our tour guide was fantastic and so was our driver. They were both very knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. We were picked up on time at our hotel lobby. The entire tour from pick up to drop off was roughly 8 hours. We had a fantastic lunch which was included in the tour fee and we got to see some of the most amazing views I have ever seen. What a great experience!!

This is a very good tour. The guide was very good and spoke good English. The Laguna was beautiful, but, it is a tough walk up there in the altitude. The Salt cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit, as well. If you are going to Bogota, it is a don't miss tour.

This was a great full day private tour. Our tour guide Patricia was knowledgeable and friendly. Interesting fact/legend tales at the laguna, picturesque. Great lunch, so tasty and with a friendly and helpful restaurant owner-vegetarian friendly. Salt Cathedral far exceeded expectations, its awesome!

Very nice visit to both places. The guide (Luis) was well versed and the local tourist agency was very responsible. We went on a Monday and the Lagoon's main entrance was closed. The tourist agency offered another half day trip the next day at their own expense to make it up. Wonderful views of the lagoon and the surrounding landscape from the top of the hill. The Salt Cathedral is a unique experience.

Truly Amazing! If you visit Bogota, you must visit Lake Guatavita and the Salt Cathedral, which is undoubtedly of one of the wonders of the world. Go during the week and ask for Claudia C and you'll not be disappointed. The drive through the quaint yet beautiful town Guatavita is gorgeous and the hike up the beautiful "patchwork of greenery" on hill side to view the Lake from above is picturesque! In my judgment the Salt Cathedral is truly majestic and indescribable even for those not devoutly Catholic. It is the same category as Machu Picchu as one of the wonders of the world. Going during the week there were fewer people making the experience seemingly private coupled with the intellectual yet personal explanation of every important detail of the tour by Claudia made this an unforgettable experience! A must see!!

Claudia was very knowledgeable and professional. Definitely helped us get to know more about specifics of the artifacts, monuments, and the city. She examined our schedules and needs, and customized the tour to better meet our time restraints and tour preferences. Thank you.

We liked our full day tour. These places were very unique! The salt cathedral was empty when we were there. It was also much bigger than we had imagined. Lunch at the local place was delicious!

It was an expensive tour so far we ever had but rewarding in the sense that it was unique and historical.
We Love It.

Our guide was very knowledgeable on a wide range of topics from local Indian lore and culture to the history of the Salt Cathedral. Laguna de Guatavita was also worth doing although you have to be prepared for a chilly wind as you make your trek to the lake. For the price I would have expected better transporation and amenities - we had to settle for a compact car which was quite cramped for four people - family of 3 plus the tour guide/driver.

This trip did not go well, we were unable to complete the trip to the Laguna, the road is pretty bad and you need a pretty sturdy car in average conditions to get to this location, the car provided for this trip in no way was up to the job along on a average day so with the rain we had that day we had to abandon the trip. The salt cathedral was lovely and worth seeing, the tour guide Claudia was great

was very excited to see this but unfortunately the young man who was my guide did not take me through the whole salt mine, did not explain enough or tell me enough information about it!! other guides were going into incredible details and i was trying to listen but my guide kept rushing me to continue.
At Lake Guatavita the same deal!! I was listening to another guide go into very detailed explanations about the history of the lake etc.
it was a real shame not to have had an experienced guide as the tour was boring without the commentary!
