First of all, this is not a review on quality of tours itself. We have booked a city tour, salt cathedral and Guatavita lagoon a few weeks before we travelled to Bogota. Edgar was very efficient in replying my emails. On the day, we waited for half an hour but he didn't show up. Our hotel staff called him on... More

He e-mailed me the fees, which were ok for our small group (4 adults). We had problems with our flight and the day before we were supposed to make the tour I called Edgar and... More

Edgar took me around Bogota city on day one and to the Salt Cathedral and to Lake Guatavita. He was very knowledgable and patient. When I got back to Bogota I'll definitely go with Edgar.
