The tour was really nice Ana Maria and the driver Alejandro gave us a very comprehensive and friendly tour. The Guatavita lake is very nice with a very interesting history. The salt mines in Zipaquirá are amazing, definitely worth seeing. and to top it all, the walk in the town is very nice. I recommend this tour 100%.

I loved the experience or guide Tatiana and our driver Carlos were very nice and answered all of our questions. They even had a wide variety of music during the drive and ask you about your preference, which is a nice touch. The food was delicious. The views were incredible.

Pleasant walk through the jungle to a lovely lagoon, good local fare at lunchtime and then an interesting trip underground to the cathedral.
