Great tour and good food
Orrett_M

My girlfriend and I booked this tour after visiting the Museo del Oro (Gold Museum) in Bogota. We had a great time. The hike to the top of the mountain wasn’t too strenuous and there were plenty of stops to look at different plants and shrubs. The underground cathedral was amazing as well. Our tour guide Viviana was amazing. She was very helpful and shared a lot of information concerning details related to the events we were doing. Our driver was punctual and the whole ride was very scenic and relaxing. The tour included a stop at a local restaurant. The food was amazing and was very tasty. If you’re looking for a full days trip in the surrounding areas of Bogota, we highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed.

Fun and nice ride to Zipaquira and Guatavita with Cindy and Guillermo. The hike was intense exercise but worth it, very beautiful views and great guide and driver.

A Great Experience

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip!! I appreciate how my tour guide took time to ask me questions and listen to me, before providing me with a wealth of knowledge of both the past and present history of these area sites— this based on what I already knew and what were my expressed interests!! And I must mention it here: I appreciate the time taken during the tour to eat, as it made me feel part of the community!! Also, I would like to say to those who are interested in this tour and are not use to short hikes at high elevation—please consider the following: (1) take a couple of days to first get use to high elevation in the Bogotá area (2) Drink enough water so your body is hydrated during your hike to Guatavita Lake. By doing these two things, you will enjoy your experience that much more!! With that said, I’m glad to report that I had great experience!!

Adventurous Trip Outside of Bogota

The driver and the guide were great, informative and friendly. It was nice to have our own guide and driver. They greeted us with snacks, water and a poncho. The car was clean and comfortable. The guide was great at taking photos of us. The trip required a lot of walking, but it was doable. The hardest part was going up the mountain due to the breathing, but it gets better as you go up and it was nice to have the guide there with us. We did go into the salt cathedral by ourselves, but there was an audio guide available. I was so happy to have booked this trip for my mother and I. The stop for lunch was pretty good and filling. The restaurant is definitely unique and homey.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. The guide and driver were very helpful in explaining what we were seeing. The only thing that would have improved our experience would have been to have an english speaking indigenous guide at the Laguna Guatavita. Our guide did a good job of translating. All in all a fun tour!

If you plan to visit Zipaquira Salt Cathedral, one of the top attractions in Colombia, this is great combined trip, which also includes the Lake Guatavita. The tour operator is very responsive, the guide Aurea and the driver Pedro assigned to us were perfect in every respect.
