We greatly enjoyed our trip to Bogota. We were enchanted with Colombia's natural beauty, energy of the city, art, culture and cuisine. We even watched Tour of Bogota, the cycling race. We were very glad that we had the same awesome guide Luis on all our optional tours.

It was very nice, thank you. Everything went as planned, the day tour was nice and our tour guide was knowledgeable and patient with us as a group even though it was very very hot out that day. The day tour at the Rosario Islands was beautiful as well.
