We begin this tour with a drive through the historical colonial neighbourhood of La Candelaria. As you walk through the streets, there will be plenty of opportunities to observe and take photos of the sights of this charming part of Bogotá. Walk by the library of Luis Angel Arango and onwards to the Plaza de Bolivar in the heart of Bogotá, where locals and visitors mingle. You will visit the Cathedral, the Congress Palace, the Cardinal's Palace, the colonial churches of El Sagrario and San Agustin, the Independence House, the Palace of Justice and the City Hall, which are all located in this square.

Continuing to the east, on top of the forested mountains, you will find Cerro de Monserrate. This mountain has a white catholic church located at the top and has been a site of worship since 1657. On a clear day you will have the opportunity to enjoy a spectacular view of the city.

We continue with a visit to the renowned Museo del Oro, displays one of the largest collections of pre-Columbian gold. The tour ends with a visit to the Museo de Botero, housed in a renovated colonial mansion. The approximately, 120 pieces of art-works on display, are all donated by Fernando Botero, Colombia's contemporary artist. His work is well-known for the 'proportionally exaggerated' figures.
