This tour was my favourite thing we did in Bogota. The local guide, Ray, took us through different parts of La Candelaria and El Centro and explained a lot about the ins and outs of street art in Bogota; the varying styles and techniques of the artists, the importance of street art in community, for example the ways artists use their medium as a platform to communicate their views on social and political issues etc.. and even more information about local community projects in effect. Great to hear it's a progressive little town!

Visually it was epic. Colombian street art certainly has a flavour of it's own! I got some increadible snaps.

We did this on the first day we got to Bogota which was a great intro because he also threw in extra information about the good local spots to eat, the history of buildings etc. A really good way to check out where everything is in La Candelaria because it can be a bit of a concrete maze.

Don't miss it!

“The best part of Candelaria!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

I really enjoyed this tour. The street art is really amazing and the guide was great, really informative about the paintings, artists, styles and even the general architecture, good restaurants and the history of the city. Lots of people seem to be committed to rejuvenating the city which is impressive and encouraging. One of my favourite things in Bogota - would recommend to anyone interested in street art which can be seen all over South America. There were maybe 25 people on the tour today which was ok but I think any more would make it crowded.

“Good tour, but far too many people!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

This would have been a great tour but unfortunately was slightly spoilt by the number of people they allow on it at one time, I counted almost 50 people in our group today which made it quite difficult to hear the guide and see the graffiti let alone actually take a few photos. If they limited the group to 25 this would definitely improve the experience.
