A fabulous tour - we booked at the last minute but Enrique called me that night before to confirm. Andrea was a great multilingual guide that made it all fun and educational. We will be back again!

Nice tour
Dec 2019 • Family
We had the tour Christmas Day with Camila and our first stop was the Monserrate. It was pretty crowded but the line moved fast. We we took the cable car to the top and the elevation makes you feel like you are out of breath a lil. Seeing an overview of the city was so pretty. We didn’t get to see go to the gold museum probably cause it was closed but just seeing other parts of the city and having lunch at a nice restaurant made the tour good.

Excellent Tour with Felipe
Feb 2020
I'm not sure if it was this tour or the more comprehensive 8 hour tour, but my husband and I spent an entire day with Felipe, including the Botero Museum. We had a great time with Felipe, who is an excellent historian and conversationalist. It turned out it was just the three of us so it was basically a private tour. Monserrate in particular was awesome. Highly recommend the longer tour that includes lunch. It was much better than the usual tour company restaurant lunch and we enjoyed more conversation with Felipe during lunch. Great job, Felipe!

Amazing Tour - Maria (our guide) was FANTASTIC!!
Jan 2020
Took this tour in January 2020 with a guide called Maria. She was prompt to pick us up from our hotel, her English was AMAZING, and she was SO friendly. She took us on a tour of Bogota and we loved every minute. Her knowledge was vast and both her and the city were fabulous. If you get chance to see Bogota I cannot recommend this service enough!

Great Overview of Bogota
Feb 2020
I booked this group tour as I thought it was a safer bet as a solo traveler. I think "group" may mean something different in Columbia as it ended up being what I would describe as a private tour ... a driver, a tour guide and me. I did not have any issues with safety however and enjoyed the day. The tour guide's English was excellent and he was very informative. There was some confusion about about whether the Monserrate visit was included. The tour guide was told no, but cleared it up by calling the company.

Hi Kimberly, Thanks for taking your time to share your comments regarding your experiencie in Bogotá. It's important for us to know our cutomers' opinions. I'm glad that your overall experience was great and informative. We called a small group tour since if more travelers join on of our tours in the same language and schedule will be a group tour. In your case, you were the only one in the group. As for the Monserrate entrances, we're sorry for the confusion, our booking system took other details, but we could clarify at time. Hope to be your host in your next time in Colombia. Kind regards, Valeria

EXCELLENT tour of Bogotá w/ Felipe!
My husband and I truly enjoyed our tour of Bogotá! Our guide, Felipe, was extremely personable and knew so much about the city’s rich history. We learned a lot and look forward to a return visit. Felipe even gave us an awesome dinner recommendation—we cannot thank him enough!

Very good experience.

A friend and I took this tour and we were very pleased at the overall experience. The folk at Impulse Travel accomodated us on the day of arrival. We were promptly picked up from our hotel. Our guide, Andres, did a great job during the city walk, taking time to share insights on the history and culture of the place. Visited several museums.We took the cable up Monserrate for a spectacular view of the city. Everything went well and we felt like valued customers. We liked Impulse Travel so much that we booked another tour with them for the next day. I highly recommend them.

Awesome tour and guides
I had a great experience seeing the city with a private tour. Emilio was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot of history and facts about the city. Emilio answered all my questions and tailored the tour to my interests. Our driver Jorge was excellent too! I would highly recommend the tour to see the city and Emilio as a guide and Jorge as a driver.
