Both the driver and the person who organized the tickets and food are very cute. We loved meeting them, very professional and above all good people. Recommended 100%. Consider that the hours set by the tour (8 hours) do not include the transfer time from the hotel and back as it varies due to traffic.

At this point I would like to mention Cindy Bibiana. She was a great tour guide and provided us with a lot of background information about Bogota and Colombia. Her good English also contributed to the fact that it was an all-round successful, very nice day.
