What people are saying about Villa de Leyva
This is a long (12 hrs) excursion, but the time was flying fast driving through beautiful, breathtaking scenery of Colombia, visiting small colonial towns and other attractions and historical sites. Our tour guide Alex was very knowledgeable and presented the excursion at well planned pace. We were very happy to have Alex as our tour guide for second time - after Bogota City tour. His knowledge of Colombian geography, history and culture are really impressive.
My wife and I enjoyed our day with Jorge. We had a stretch break to taste the arepas boyacences and drink a tinto. We stopped at El Puente de Boyacá and learned some history. Our next stop was the Casa de Terracota, a very unique house which we toured, visiting every room. The rest of our day we wandered around Villa de Leyva admiring the colonial architecture. Altogether it was a great day.
It was a 12 hours trip worth every minute. The landscape you see while travelling from Bogota is beautiful. Villa de Leyva is touristic, but still cosy. Nice restaurants and shops. We also visited the „Terracotta House“, Fossil exhibition , Muisca Exhibition, Raquira nearby in the area. I had a fantastic day. Our driver Alex was the most dedicated person you can imagine
The driver and the sites were wonderful, however, the traffic was horrific. I would recommend that others do not take the tour on a Saturday
A very nice tour! I highly recommend it. Villa de Leyva is very charming and the mountan road to it is very pictureque.
