Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
Join us in this walk through the history of Bogotá among colonial houses, baroque churches, and art deco architecture. 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, 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.

This 5-hour walking tour will start in El Chorro de Quevedo, a small square in La Candelaria neighborhood after travelers are picked up at their lodgings. A brief introduction will be made here, 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.
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?
