We enjoyed this tour and felt that it gave a good overview of Bogota. We started the day riding the cable car since the weather was nice in the morning. We did have a little problem finding our guide in the crowded hotel lobby as he didn't have a name tag or company jacket on. The guide spoke English well, was kind, and took photos of us. I thought the gardens on Mt. Montserrat were beautiful and there are gift shops as well.
The other highlight of the tour was the Boltero Museum. It contains paintings of other artists as well and has an interesting lay-out.
The Museo de Oro was closed because we were there on a Monday. Instead we went to a wonderful coffee shop.

Was a great trip. Our tour guide Chris did a good job ensuring all participant where back on mini bus promptly avoiding frustrations that I have seen in the past when people are always late back. There was about 12 in the group. We did an early visit to Christ the redeemer before the cloud came in entrance not included we then went to sugar loaf mountain entrance/ cable car cost not included we toured around had lunch in a buffet style restaurant not included visited a monastery and were returned to our pick up hotels. Was a good tour but I would prefer all the extras were included in the cost I know they do do a tour that includes the extras but it was full when I tried to book. If I did it again I would book early and book the one with extras included. Great views from the vantage points we visited.

I booked this trip the morning of. The group IMPULSE worked very hard to arrange a driver and a guide. I accidentally got in the wrong car leaving my hotel yes... I know... duhhh and the company worked with the driver to get me to the drop off point to meet my guide.
The rest of the tour was amazing. I saw EVERYTHING on my list in only 5 hours and I did not feel rushed at all.

Highly reccomend!

We took the 5 hour tour in the afternoon. Our guide Fabian picked us up at 2 pm from our hotel. First we visited Mount Monserrate by funicular and spent an hour there. Then we visited the historic neighborhood walking the cobblestone streets and reaching Main square. On the way we enjoyed tasting Obleas. Since we had already visited Gold museum our guide took us to Botero museum which was a good attraction. All in all the tour was good and our guide Fabian was excellant/

An excellent intro and overview to the city for first time visitors. Our guide Felipe was engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. He made the history of Bogota come alive for us. Especially enjoyed his insight as we toured the Gold Museum. Sunset view from Montserrate was special, albeit a bit chilly so dress accordingly. Ran out of time so were unable to see some of the graffiti in the Canderlara area but now know where to head.
Highly recommend
