Product Description

Graffiti Tour in Bogota

Graffiti Tour in Bogota – The term graffiti, derived from the Italian word “graffito” is one of the oldest arts to express feelings or to set a political statement in form of scribbled, scratched or painted elements on walls or facades.While many countries treat street art as an abomination often carried out by belligerent youths with criminal tendencies, Colombia has embraced it as the artistic expression of its people. Artists are often commissioned to create facades in a bid by businesses to avoid mindless tagging, and advertising campaigns utilise the medium as a channel to reach their market. For the graffiti artists themselves, it is a chance to create social and powerful commentary about the nation’s politics or simply to brighten the days of the people who have suffered at the hands of Colombia’s somewhat traumatic past.

During our Graffiti tour in Bogota, we will also visit the downtown of Bogota. Besides the great graffiti art we get to know various vintage and alternative shops, trendy pubs and other fancy places to get in touch with the locals.

On our way we encounter different graffitis from worldwide known street artists and can enjoy the art of the most famous Colombian street art crew  namend APC ( Animal Power Crew). Other famous artists are Toxicomano, DEXS, Stinkfish, DJ Lu and Lesivo who is known for his political grafics. You will be amazed, how much the graffitis will tell us about the Colombian history. During the tour we will possibly change your mind about the fascinating art of Graffitis and provide another point of view.

    I only had one day in Bogota before my main holiday in Colombia began. I knew there wasn’t time to see everything, so I decided to just concentrate on a small area that would be interesting to photograph – I’m inspired by colour and I love street art. Oscar (my guide) took time to listen to what I wanted to do, then also to think about the places he thought I would enjoy. I had a fabulous day out with him strolling the streets and just taking everything in. He was so patient when I constantly stopped to take photographs and was great company too, explaining the history and culture of the city (and Colombia itself) and also some of his own life. We had coffee at Juan Valdez and thoughtfully suggested lunch at a gorgeous vegetarian restaurant (Quinua y Amaranto). In the afternoon he drove me out of the centre to view some of the massive street art along the main roads – and stopped the car so I could jump out an take photographs!

    All in all an excellent, properly personalised tour, tailored exactly to my interests – worth every penny and I highly recommend if you’re particular about things you want to do!

    My wife Irene and my daughter younger daughter Lucienne had a wonderful experience in Botoga. The tour guide, David Rodrigues Espinel, was excellent. He had very good English and was highly knowledgeable and was most attentive to our interests. We had several drivers who were also excellent. We visited the Gold Museum, took the Graffiti Tour in Botoga, and went to Montserrat. A highlight was the visit to the Salt Cathedral which had the added experience of some of the country side surrounding Bogota.

    I am from Bogota, and took the trip together with 14 foreigners, some of which had been living in the city for a couple of years, others were just visiting.

    Our group was a mix of adults and children (from 4 to 13 years old) and we all LOVED the experience: the places we went were places we never had been to in the city, the graffitis which are pieces of art, the explanation of our guide Marcelo who knew the artists and the history behind the paintings, EVERYTHING worked out great!

    We highly recommend this tour. It is a must for everyone living in Bogota or just passing by. You will see art, walk around the center of the city, see historical places and have a great, great time.
