We took a tour with German to Laguna de Guatavita and Zipaquira and the Cathedral of Salt. German picked us up from our apartment in the morning. It took about 2 hours to drive to Guatavita and about another 1 1/2 hours from Guatavita to the Cathedral. German was an excellent tour guide who know everything you needed to know... More

I had a six hours visit of Bogota with German. The visit was really interesting and Bogota' is an interesting city to visit. A six-hour visit gives you a good overview of the city. My guide was German. He is a very professional guide, very flexible and willing to change things to best suit your needs. Different from many similar... More

I use guides alot! My Bogota guide with toursofcolombia was German. Had his own car and we went EVERYWHERE. The traffic is horrendous. You must ease in bumper to bumper until about the fourth car you get in! He was over 30, strong, single, very prompt, opened car doors, had water for me. Never felt safer. As a single older... More

We took the day tour to Laguna Guatavita with this company and found it very disappointing. From the time we left in a shabby car with a missing seatbelt in the back [sorry guys, we Yankees are pretty uptight about wearing seatbelts, especially in the horrendous traffic of Bogota] to the time we returned, this was not a great experience....

Excellent reviews help us sell our tours; poor reviews help us improve our service. Both are useful, so first let me say thank you to SadieMT for writing. As the many other reviews of our services attest, this tour didn't live up to our standards. As a result, we have discharged the guide who was responsible for this poor performance.... More

I can't recommend this company high enough. What a joy was having German as a guide! I hope we'll book another tour of Colombia with him next year.

We were picked up promptly by our guide, German, in a pristine vehicle for, it turns out, a private tour of the coffee plantation. The waterfall viewing was a nice break to the drive and a beautiful stop adjacent to a historic "haunted" hotel. The Coloma coffee plantation is a beautiful, boutique plantation that includes a historic, over 100 year... More

Great experience!! I came to Colombia on a business trip and had 1 day. Being a female traveling alone and not speaking any spanish, I was hesitant. I hired a private tour guide for the day, German was my guide, He knew a lot of the history of Bogota, took me to some great places. I really got a great... More

Excellent tours on both days, tour guide German was friendly, extremely knowledgable which extended beyond the general information you would usually get. Was a wonderful way to experience the city, walking around with someone to explain all of the buildings and take me through the museo del oro as well as an extra visit to an art museum which went...
