“Great Paragliding Experience!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Going back to Bogota with my girlfriend, and only with a few days in the city, I decided to contact Destino Bogota for something fun to do... they had so many different plans nearby and we ended up deciding to go paragliding at La Calera (a small town in the mountains 30 min away). We didn't really know what to expect since neither of us had gone paragliding before, but we gave it a chance and it was a great experience! Destino Bogota arranged private transportation for us and they met us at La Calera where we had a quick snack (cheesy arepa!)... then we went to the jumping site and the company directly in charge of the paragliding experts provided us with quick instructions to get us ready for the flight. At all times we felt safe and they were very professional!. It was a tandem flight, where you just relax and enjoy while the pilot maneuvers to gain altitude and take you for about 20-30 minutes literally inside the clouds, from where you will have an awesome view of Bogota! overall a great trip and we are truly thankful to Destino Bogota and their team (specially Rodrigo) for their help and service. Highly recommended!

Hola Juan!

Gracias por escribirnos! Fue un placer haber convertido sus horas de espera en el aeropuerto en su primera experiencia de parapente.

Esperamos tenerlos de vuelta y poder ayudarlos de nuevo!

“Great day trip from Bogota”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We had a great day trip from Bogota to Lake Guatavita and the salt cathedral in Zipaquira. We learned a lot about the area and had a very knowledgeable and professional guide and driver. It was a great day outside the city seeing some of the beautiful Colombian countryside and getting a unique taste of the culture. Highly recommended.

“Great tour of a BEAUTIFUL city.”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

This tour is a must if you go to Bogota. Our guide Julie was amazing. She taught us a lot about the city and took us to many must see places. My favorite was Mt. Monserrate. The sites of the huge city is beautiful. Seeing the different parts of the city was also interesting. We LOVED this tour along with our guide Julie!!

“Excellent service”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

I arranged an airport transfer, Bogota city tour and salt cathedral tour on separate days through Destino, and dealt with Diego, whose responses were always prompt and helpful. My flight into Bogota was cancelled due to bad weather in Atlanta so I arrived 24 hours later than planned, but Diego rearranged my transfer and arranged for me to do both tours on the same day so that I didn't miss out; everything was done quickly and efficiently over email. The airport transfer went smoothly with a friendly driver called Maria, and the tours were great, both with an excellent guide called Luis Eduardo. The tours also seemed really good value.

I'd definitely recommend Destino Bogota to anyone travelling to Colombia, and I will definitely use them again on my inevitable return to lovely Colombia one day!

“Coffee master experience”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

You think it is easy to find a tour where an expert shares her knowledge of the coffee plantation and invite you to look at all processes up to the "cupping".
No... not that easy. An specially with short advice. Fortunately I contacted Destino Bogota that offered the expert workhop part but also another stop to a coffee shop for drinking only best selected colombian coffees. The ones you cannot find in regular café I Bogota.
Great day indeed, plus a visit of a local market.
Hope many other people will have a chance to enjoy this new tour.
