“Great one day trip to Guatavita Lake and Zipaquira Salt Cathedral”

Jul 10, 2014 by Monica

Booked a one day trip via the hotel concierge, and was a great experience. The places we visited were the Guatavita Lake and the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral. Both places, the first a natural landmark and the second created by the people, were breathtaking. Our guide was John Alexander Murcia who, a travel passionate himself, had great knowledge about the places we visited but about greatest places in the world as well. Very friendly, John made our second day in Colombia unforgettable. I highly recommend John for his services. He was the first to show us what a great country is Colombia and how friendly the people are. By the end of the day it felt like we knew him for a while. We would definitely use his services again next time we are in Bogota!


“Top notch experience, worth the price”

My wife and I took the 8 hour tour that stopped at Guatavita (El Dorado lagoon) then at Zipaquira (Salt Cathedral). We normally do not spend this much on tours but this was well worth it. We did see some other companies offering tours for slightly less but I am confident we got the best tour possible. Our tour guide, Byron, was great. He was extremely knowledgeable about everything we saw on the tour, spoke great english, and just a great ambassador to his city and country. Also, the lunch we had was phenomenal. After working up an appetite hiking up to the lagoon, we had some huge chicken and Colombian steak meals at a great restaurant. We definitely recommend Hansa after our positive experience.

Amazing

Byron was our guide for 3 full days. We are a family of 3 including our 10 year old son. Like so many travellers we sadly don’t have a month or more to spend in Colombia, so having now travelled extensively we have learn – get yourself a brilliant guide, research areas of must see with 2-3 hours of a city and spend at least 3 days in any one major location… So that’s what we have just done- after writing to Evelyn at Hansard tours I briefed her thru email that we were a family of 3, very active, wanted to do as much as we could and wanted a guide who we could get no end of knowledge and local information out of, plus a guide who could also answer the many questions if a 10 year old too… Byron- he was wonderful, the most polite, kind, patient, and super super knowledgable man – gosh we were super blessed to have had him at our finger tips for 3 days. From the north to the south and everywhere in between we did Bogota. The days we’re long- but we are fit and wanted as much as possible. the salt cathedral, the organic coffee plantation, the drive out to the Guatavita and the walking tour thru old Bogota and the markets and Monserate Hill, were all fabulous and exactly what we had requested. Not only did we see so much but we had our minds filled with so much local information,facts and wonders. That you Hansa, and an even bigger thankyou to Byron. Not a moment of down time, but so many wonderful memory’s.
