We were e group of five family members on this tour. Our driver Jairo picked us up at our hotel at 8am and took us first to Guatavita and then to lunch in Zipaquirá at Brasos del Llano. The food was great and the attendant was very attentive and welcomed us with the flag of our island. After that we went to the Salt Cathedral. It's a long day trip but definitely worth it. I absolutely recommend this tour and the driver Jairo is very polite and nice man. He gave us tips for other places to visit during our stay in Bogota.
