What to expect

This tour is designed for travelers who want to discover local lifestyle, food and hidden jewels of Bogotá, getting more than traditional sightseeing experiences.

After meeting your guide at the Gold Museum, you'll start the tour walking up to Eje Ambiental to learn about the reconstruction and social integration carried out by architect Rogelio Salmona. Then, you'll enter La Candelaria and walk up to Plaza la Concordia, a local market that exhibits the day-to-day vendor/client relations for vegetable and fruit sales. Once out, you'll walk through the narrow street of Chorro de Quevedo and stop to try a cup of chicha, a traditional fermented drink made with maize, inherited from native indigenous ancestors.

Then, you'll make a brief visit to the Botero Museum and continue down to Plaza de Bolívar. This main square is home to the most important administrative buildings and the legendary Prime Cathedral. Next, you'll enter a secret alley full of traditional handmade kitchen utensils. The tour will end with a delicious typical Colombian snack as the perfect ending for this experience.
