This was one of my favourite tours ever! Francisco was so through in helping us dive into the culture and history of the community ! I felt safe and excited ! If you only have the time for only one day trip I highly recommend you do this one! Thank you Francisco for the amazing day and for all the good work you do for the community! ❤️

Our guide Francisco was awesome really cool guy friendly and happy he had a lot of info of the area happy to answer all my questions he took us to a bakery up in Paraiso Quiba if you up there don’t miss going there then we went to the view point what a fantastic view of Bogotá if you go on this trip ask for Francisco what a cool guy

We are experienced travellers, but this was a truly amazing and unforgettable experience. Francisco is an excellent guide who clearly has a great deal of knowledge of - and care for - the subject. Every visitor to Bogotá should experience this - it is a real eye-opener.

What an amazing experience. The guide was very friendly and informative. The tour was great, some really unique and wonderful sights. And with an added security guard, we felt really safe. I'd absolutely recommend this tour!

Amazing tour and almost private. Would recommend over Favela 13 in Medellín for sure. Amazing view, nice cafes at the top and the ride is great.
