    Outstanding tour – great guide. Really able to sync with our interests. Booked initally through Viator, but then I was able to customize and adjust the itinerary very easily with Hansa Tours via email; they were extremely responsive. Great experience, would rate highly and use again.

    We booked the half day Bogota tour with David and he was very knowledgeable, particularly about the Museo de Oro and Botero Museum. We felt safe as a family of 4 walking with him around Plaza Bolivar and the Presidential Palace. The driver was professional and knew the safest and quickest routes to get around traffic. Highly recommended.
