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
Discover the history of Bogotá in a tour to Botero and Gold Museum. Find colonial houses, baroque churches, and art deco architecture in La Candelaria. Learn about Colombia’s Spanish colonial past that has been represented in local graffiti.
The local indigenous populations have left their mark, and it’s good to learn their stories. Then discover how the drug traffic has affected Colombia as a whole and why coca leaf has a bad rep and how important they are.
Afterward, visit Simón Bolívar Square and learn how politics, conflict and the drug trade relate to each other. Then, visit with us the Gold Museum –Museo del Oro–, where you’ll find indigenous craftsmanship on display. After, we’ll visit nearby Botero Museum, where some of the artist’s best works are displayed.
Finally, join us at a local café to learn all about coffee brewing and culture from an expert.
What to expect
A brief introduction will be made at Chorro de Quevedo Square, before setting out to walk through the streets of the neighborhood.
The first stop is at a local chicha bar, where travelers will have a taste of the local drink. Then the group will continue walking towards a local market, where they’ll be able to taste some of the native fruits.
From the city square, the group will visit the Gold Museum first and then hop to the nearby Botero Museum.
Know before you book
Not all of history is found in textbooks. Sometimes what you need is a taste of history, and what better way to taste history than through a region’s drinks?
Colonial houses, emeralds, drug trade, gold, museums, the whole nine yards!
