Overview of your tour

Our Bogotá City & Monserrate Tour begins in the famous historic center of the capital, La Candelaria. Your guide will spin you the tales of Bogota’s rich history as you wander through the streets of this quaint neighborhood. After visiting the world’s largest collection of pre-Hispanic era gold pieces (over 55,000 works in total!) at the Gold Museum, you’ll make your way to the top of Monserrate Hill via cable car. Here you will enjoy the vast vistas provided by Monserrate’s incredible height. The peak of this hill hosts a variety of artisanal shops that are full of knick-knacks to remind you of your time in Bogotá or allow you to share your Colombian experience with someone else!

Please note that the Gold Museum is closed on Mondays. If your tour happens to be on a Monday, don’t worry — we’ll find another fantastic museum to visit, such as the Botero Museum, or another activity that suits you to fill the time.

Though this is the classic route that we recommend, please do not hesitate to let us know upon booking what interests you! We are more than happy to alter the itinerary to incorporate other sights that you would like to see or places you would like to visit.
