City Tour in Bogota

Bogota

If you are in Bogotá on vacations or business, you must visit Monserrate Hill. To see the city’s greatness from above is a unique experience that will become an unforgettable memory.

Monserrate Sanctuary rises to 3.152 over the capital, becoming the most popular viewpoint of the city, with the best view Bogotá can offer. It is the center of the national religious tradition, and has become a part of the capital’s history due to the high flow of visitants, both Colombian and foreigners. Monserrate is a destination for the Catholics, but also for those who are looking for the beautiful landscape you can enjoy from there. Shopping is a part of this tour too, because we can find different stores selling typical souvenirs. This is the perfect scenery to try the famous “canelazo”, a delicious mix of the traditional aguardiente (sugar cane alcohol) with cinnamon and agua de panela (whole cane sugar water), that is hot served and which sweet flavor is unique.

There are three options to reach the top of the hill: Funicular, aerial tramway or a walking path. Any of them will give us a privileged view of the city.

When we come back, La Candelaria neighborhood will be waiting for us, with all the history and buildings that were the witnesses of the city development. The National Congress, The Primal Cathedral, The Justice Palace, The Mayor’s Headquarters and the 20 de Julio House are some of the architectural pieces of work we can visit.

Bogota’s gastronomy will show us its best dishes, leaving us ready for the second part of our tour, when we can choose 2 museums to visit: The Gold Museum, Botero Museum, Quinta de Bolivar Museum, National Museum, or The Military Museum.

“Getting in touch with my roots”

Jul 10, 2014 by Ang B

As an American of Colombian descent it was amazing going back to the land my abuelas spoke so fondly of. What made my experience even more impressionable, was my visit to the “Centro Historico de Bogota y Usaquen”. Even though I am proficient in spanish, I’ll sometimes struggle with the speedy native accent so it was absolutely reassuring to have Soraya Halaby as my tour guide. She was attentive, light-hearted and added an element of humor and passion to the tour that lacked with other tour guides on other tours I’ve been on. I would definitely recommend this as a stop on any tour of Colombia’s beautiful capital.


“Excellent tour”

Jul 10, 2014 by Tech Warman

Excellent tour. Had Byron as our tour guide, and we were all very impressed by not just how knowledgeable he was, but his enthusiasm, and all round enjoyment of showing us around Bogota.

Now a problem I’ve found on my travels is that tour guides often take you to completely overrated tourist traps, and to overpriced food where they probably get kickbacks from the owners. NOT this one!!! Was brought to some great places to eat, including some good choices of street vendors on the way, and also some translating/haggling at the market.

Very very highly recommended!


“Guided tour of Bogotá (Monserrate & La Candelaria)”

A wonderful guided tour of Monserrate and the old city of Bogotá in English. Our guide (Byron Leon) from Hansa Tours was exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly & professional.


“Expensive – but worth every penny”

Jul 08, 2014 by Uki Mepp

I was in Bogota on business and had half a day free before heading back to the airport – so didn’t have time to organise some sightseeing for myself – so I booked this tour through my hotel to give me a shortcut to seeing as much as possible in that time.
It was pricey ($150) but totally worth it! My guide, Juan David, was brilliant! Really knowledgeable and with perfect English. Doing a thesis on Bogota so really interesting to talk to about the history and also the people and the culture – and also quite opinionated so it wasn’t the usual bland fact-only tour that you can sometimes get (and which I don’t feel offers much beyond a guidebook!).
We went up the funicular to Monserrate and then walked around Candelaria (including the bits outside the more touristy centre) and managed to squeeze in the highlights of 3 museums (Botero, The Old Mint and The Gold Museum). I really enjoyed it! I could have spent 4 hours in the Gold Museum alone – but I feel that Juan ensured I saw the best bits and even though we were running late he didn’t hurry me along.
Book them if you can – and get Juan David too if possible.

“2 jours à Bogota avec Hansa Tours”

Jun 26, 2014 by Sandrine S

J’ai passé 2 jours avec Soraya, ma guide et Edgar, mon chauffeur à Bogota.
C’était un séjour incroyable, qui, grâce à Soraya, m’a péris de revoir complètement mes a priori sur le pays. C’est une très belle ville, les gens y sont très gentils et accueillants.
Soraya est une guide très professionnelle, à l’écoute de tous mes besoins et s’adaptant en permanence. Edgar est un chauffeur très serviable, discret, professionnel.
Hansa Tours est à recommander à tous ceux qui veulent découvrir la Colombie, pays magnifique.
