A big thanks to my guide Jose for a great introduction to the La Candelaria area of Bogota! Jose showed me all of the main attractions and he was able to explain in detail about the history and the culture of the city (even the significance of the graffiti). Also, I got to sample traditional Colombian cuisine and taste real Colombian coffee! In addition, a special thanks to Jose for arranging my transportation to the airport after the tour. Excellent excursion!!!

I found this tour with Camila so informative. She answered all my questions and it was just like walking and learning with an old friend.
