    Jena was a great guide! And it was wonderful to have a chance to see one of the tallest waterfalls in South America up close. We had extremely rainy weather and that impacted our hike, it got so muddy that we were sliding towards the end and there was a lot of cow poo on the trail. Would recommend packing extra dry clothes for a change for the ride home. Great experience to see the local farmers as well and eat with them

    My tour guide and driver were great! I enjoyed the tour however I think it was way overpriced! The tour took about 3.5 hours (including pickup time and drive) . I could easily go to Monserrat and La candelaria myself they are both very touristic places located in the city and it would probably cost me no more than $20 total (maybe not even). I paid $110. Considering the fact that round trip air ticket to San Andres cost me $108 this price for the tour was pretty ridiculous. I didnt realized that time so I booked but later I found same tour three times cheaper with other agencies I wish I do more research prior booking. I paid less for Villa de Leyva tour with other stops which was 13 hours tour. So price was definitely a rip off.

Great experience more so because we were the only ones on the tour - special thanks to our guides - Maria & Francisco - they were fantastic! Feedback to future travellers (and the company) - the sights were great the trail were was is not easy - ideally should not be the first time on a horseback, do believe everyone should be given helmets.

Our guide, Osvaldo, was very attentive to our needs. He was well informed and answered our questions during our journey. Highly recommend this tour. The Laguna de Guatavita is rich in history and culture, and the Salt Cathedral is truly impressive. Both sites are a must see.
