The directions for the meeting spot was very clear. Once you leave the Clock tower, cross the street and stay to the right of the horse statutes. You also get a message via WhatsApp to confirm everything. I appreciated the bottle of water before the start of the walk. Our guide, Ronald was very informative and patient. He will offer to take pictures for you as well. It was a great history lesson full of art and culture. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the Colombian culture! Getsemani is traditional and home to some families that you may see sitting by their windows as you walk back. Pay attention to the landscape so you can see the difference from traditional to modern. The snacks and ice cream were a yummy treat to beat the heat and we ended the tour back in the wall city. Great tour! Exactly as advertised.

Roberto seems to be the unofficial "Mayor" of Getsemani. He knew people at every corner and gave a wonderful tour of the Getsemani neighborhood including history, art, food and culture.

We had the best time walking through the beautiful city of Getsemani! Bike & Arts took such great care of us. We highly recommend this amazing tour :)

Great tour/Jaime was an amazing guide/loved exploring Getsemani/finding Cafe de Mural and having amazing affogatos was the icing on the cake for us.

Best experience our guide Jaime was amazing felt like locals exploring the city couldn’t have been better ! Thank you !
