Six hours might not be a ton, but we’ll make them count in this amazing 4h Layover Tour of downtown Bogotá. Perfect for the energetic traveler who is in a little bit of a rush.
We’ll start off traversing the famous Candelaria. Here you’ll walkthrough cobblestoned streets surrounded by colonial architecture, baroque churches, and art deco houses. It’s a place brimming with history and packed with stories of the recent armed conflict and drug trade. We’ll top it off with a warm cup of coca-leaf tea to get you going!
Then take a cable car up Monserrate. There is no other spot in town where Bogotá can be so magnificently and completely appreciated. Despite the cathedral crowning the hill, legend says you shouldn’t bring your would-be spouse along. It’s supposed to be bad luck.
Whatever your pick, we’ll swiftly take you back to the airport so you don’t miss your next flight.
