What people are saying about Monserrate

Our tour guide, Andrés, has full knowledge of the landscapes and culture of Bogotá. He led us to experience the essence of that beautiful city, which left us with the desire to visit again. He and our driver Jorge, formed an excellent team, creating a unique experience for our first visit to Bogotá. Both were very professional and respectful at all times which gave us a lot of security, since we were two women alone. We are very pleased with the service provided so we recommend it.
