Alejandra was a great guide. I had the privilege to have the tour to myself and she was so kind, knowledgeable and patient with me. She is known by locals when walking around as well and has a great energy. We also had a nice coffee break together and entered some areas where I wouldn't even know it was possible to enter for me. I recommend Alejandra to everyone who would like to soak all the history of the city and understand political situations that shaped the country while seeing beautiful landmarks. Thank you Aleja again!

This was a fabulous experience! You know the tour is excellent when both the sights and the tour guide are equally impressive! Our guide Jorge was extremely knowledgeable and courteous all whilst immersing us in the Colmbian culture! My girlfriend and I feel a kinship to Bogota (more than any wikipedia page could do). The greatest tour guide one could ask for. I highly recommend this trip!

Overall I am very happy that I booked this private tour. She was super knowledgeable and helped cater the tour based on my interests. I ended up seeing, experiencing and learning a lot more than I expected to, and she also gave me multiple recommendations for my remaining few days in Colombia. Highly recommend booking this.

The tour my son and I did in Bogota was incredible! Our guide Jorge was very knowledgeable and courteous. I would be confident in recommending this tour to anyone wanting to learn about Bogota and Colombia's history.

Jorge is very well-aware of the city and history, and he showed around in a good route of the neighborhood. It was really nice experience to get to know about Bogotá.
