Had a wonderful experience and tour with Hector! Our driver was fantastic as well. This was a private tour and Hector really tailored it specifically to my requests. I got to see beautiful views of Bogota and was really able to get a nice understanding of the town by night. We had dinner at Andres which was a highlight for me! What a fun place! It was a wonderful tour! Hector also was so informative about my El Dorado tour the next day. He told me that the guides would be in Spanish only and really went beyond the call of duty to explain everything to me ahead of time. He is incredibly knowledgeable and knows so much about Bogota and Colombia. He is a super great guy and guide and I had a an absolutely wonderful time. I highly recommend this tour with Hector to everyone!

We were e group of five family members on this tour. Our driver Jairo picked us up at our hotel at 8am and took us first to Guatavita and then to lunch in Zipaquirá at Brasos del Llano. The food was great and the attendant was very attentive and welcomed us with the flag of our island. After that we went to the Salt Cathedral. It's a long day trip but definitely worth it. I absolutely recommend this tour and the driver Jairo is very polite and nice man. He gave us tips for other places to visit during our stay in Bogota.

I really liked the tour, entertaining and very educational, the guide of the farm was pleasant and his presentation of everything was clear and concise, just what is necessary

Amazing experience, tour guide was well-versed in the subjects, timing was perfect and the locations were breath-taking. Much happier than expected!

Small group, relaxed drive, interesting tour and great coffee :)
