It is of great sadness for us to announce that Gran Colombia Tours will cease its services due to COVID-19 from March 20th to May 31st. Our administrative staff will be available during this period for any assistance you might need.
We really hope to show again Colombia’s beauty and potential to the world as soon as we recover from this crisis.
For now, it is time to help #StayAtHome
Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
Come with us to this wonderful tour to explore the highest point of the city in Monserrate and the best places in La Candelaria district.
La Candelaria is the oldest and most picturesque neighborhood downtown. It’s a place packed with history and culture. Colorful streets, baroque architecture, graffiti, and art deco houses come together to paint a unique picture of Bogotá.
We will then make our way to the foot of Monserrate. Here we’ll take the cable car up the mountain to enjoy the most amazing and breathtaking views this city has to offer: the whole length of the valley from the best vantage point. After enjoying the brisk mountain air, we’ll tour the Monserrate Cathedral and its surroundings.
Despite the church crowning the hill, legend says you shouldn’t bring your would-be spouse along. It’s supposed to be bad luck.
After enjoying the sights, we’ll take the cable car in Monserrate back down to the busy streets of Bogotá and walk back to La Candelaria to end our tour.
What to expect
The walking tour will take us in and around La Candelaria. After our walk, we will move towards the foot of Monserrate mountain where they will take the cable car to ascend.
After sightseeing and exploring the cathedral on Monserrate, travelers will take the cable car back down to the city. From the foot of the mountain, they will walk back to the historical center.
