Great Fun!
This was so much fun! Gerald was our tour guide. He was prepared for the weather with umbrellas for the party. He was great, and very knowledgeable about the area and history. The fruit and coffee tastings were delicious. Would highly recommend.

The reviews do not lie. Book a tour immediately!
Dec 2020 • Solo
Exceeded my expectations. It was 3 hours of fun facts, local and national educational info, coffee (Gio's speciality jajaja) & fruit worship (because Colombia is a HAVEN due to such fertile land), extensive descriptions in English (Español is also available and a few other remnants from the multifaceted guides!) and a welcoming introduction to this wonderful city.

Gio & Geraldo have such vibrant, cultured, full, interactive personalities and even if you join a tour solo, you will be fully taken care of and made to feel comfortable. Bring some walking shoes/trainers (UK)/Sneakers (USA) and prepare to be WOWED by Bogotá. They are well connected and will go above and beyond to answer related or random questions. Much love from Donya & thanks for being my personal body guards from the street dog population. Jejeje.

Great tour for an introduction to the city
Nov 2020
I had a great time with my guide Gio who walked me around this neighborhood of Bogotá and explained to me some things I would have never been able to guess (like the existence of an open-air illegal emerald market). The tour also included some great fruit and coffee tasting, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great 3H tour of la Candelaria - English speaking Guide
Nov 2020 • Couples
We had a fantastic tour of the Candelaria/ Bogotá with Gioser today. The tour was well organised and had the perfect balance between knowledge/fun/discoveries. Gioser is a very knowledgable, friendly and polite guide - he clearly is passionated about what he does. Can’t wait to go on another tour with him! By the way the tour is very Covid friendly

Perfect intro to the city
Feb 2020
I went on the free walking tour of Bogota at the beginning on February during a brief 24 hour stay in Colombia! It was a great introduction to the city and the country; it definitely made me want to visit again one day (fingers crossed)!

I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful street art and trying out the different fruit. I don't really like coffee, but it was interesting to go to the coffee shop too. I think this tour had a great mix of everything to suite everyone and I appreciated that it wasn't just a site seeing tour looking at historical buildings as too much of that can get boring (for me anyway!).

too many people
Dec 2019
The tour guide was nice and had good stories. The group was way too big and it was hard to follow him in the narrow alleys of Candelaria. The stop at the fruit stand was interesting at first but took way too long as people were encouraged to buy smoothies. Compared to other tours we had in Colombia - this was not the best one.

Hi Eliane, Thank you for posting your feedback on TripAdvisor. The stop at La Concordia Marketplace is one of the most important and didactic experiences included in our Walking Tour, besides it doesn't have any business proposal. We are so sorry to know the group was too big to follow and to know this was not the best tour you had in Colombia, we are always trying to improve our service. Gran Colombia Tours
