Some advices
  1. Colombia does not ask you for a visa to enter the country.
  2. When you arrive to Bogota, locate your hotel and the central points that will serve as a reference in the city. Also recognize the main roads, restaurants, shopping centers and public transport near your location.
  3. Bogota is an economic city. According to your needs and preferences you can find a wide range of prices so that you have to choose from.
  4. The main public transport in Bogota is Transmilenio, in which you can move around the city.
  5. If what you are looking for is a specific tour of the touristic places of Bogotá and to know by the hand of a bilingual guide the whole history of the city, we recommend that you visit our Tours in Bogota section. You will not want to miss them!
  6. Security in Bogota has improved a lot in the last time. However, it is important that you be careful, that you carry with you the cash that is strictly necessary, that you try to walk on busy roads during the day and that you do not have any valuable objects in sight. No person, police officer or public official has to ask for your passport or documents in the street, nor ask you to accompany him or her anywhere.
We hope that these tips can be of great help when visiting this beautiful city and make this trip an unforgettable one.

"By the end of the week, I felt I'd made a new friend and was leaving a city I had fallen in love with. If and when we get to go back, I'll be asking Daniel to take us to more sites and share more of his favorite places with us. I can't adequately express how much his time and dedication to our trip meant to me. Absolutely wonderful tour guide."
