What people are saying about Cundinamarca

My friend and I had an awesome time with Nick going to La Chorrera. Easy to find meeting spot, great breakfast before leaving the city, and an easy van/bus ride to the park. The views were incredible even from the car, so we didn't mind the trip there or back. The driver was also great and friendly. The trip lasted until about 5:30 p.m. (not 3 as it says on the description). Nick, the guide was great at setting expectations during the hike -- how long until the next marker, etc. -- and shared lots of interesting stories/facts. The hike was beautiful, and it was fun to get out of the city and see such different terrain even though it was only a short drive away. Would recommend!

We really enjoyed our trip with Juan, he picked us up at our hotel, we then went to get the cable car up to Mirador/Paraiso where we meet Camillo who was our guide of the local community & the meaning behind some of the street art. both very knowledgeable of the area, they both clearly care about community & helping make it better. There was a bonus stop at a local bakery/café where we were offered something to eat.
