I was in Bogota on business and had half a day free before heading back to the airport - so didn't have time to organise some sightseeing for myself - so I booked this tour through my hotel to give me a shortcut to seeing as much as possible in that time.
It was pricey ($150) but totally worth it! My guide, Juan David, was brilliant! Really knowledgeable and with perfect English. Doing a thesis on Bogota so really interesting to talk to about the history and also the people and the culture - and also quite opinionated so it wasn't the usual bland fact-only tour that you can sometimes get (and which I don't feel offers much beyond a guidebook!).
We went up the funicular to Monserrate and then walked around Candelaria (including the bits outside the more touristy centre) and managed to squeeze in the highlights of 3 museums (Botero, The Old Mint and The Gold Museum). I really enjoyed it! I could have spent 4 hours in the Gold Museum alone - but I feel that Juan ensured I saw the best bits and even though we were running late he didn't hurry me along.
Book them if you can - and get Juan David too if possible.
