My tour guide Juan Manuel was so friendly and very informative! We had a great time. He picked me up at my hotel and took me directly to the cable car. The view from the cable car is beautiful, and the neighborhood at the top of the mountain is very unique. This is definitely off the beaten path, but a great experience for seeing a part of Bogota that not many people travel to.

I had a great tour with Juan - he was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions, and of course provided me with lots of background and personal insights. The views are incredible from the cable car and I took some great pictures, at the top we had a good walk around and I tried some local food and drink. I felt very safe, and would recommend everyone to take this tour if they have any interest in seeing the real Bogota. It really was the highlight of my few days in Bogota. Thank you!
