      Day tour of Bogota

      by kayenewland Online Now Jun 1, 2015 at 6:19 PM

      Hi, can anyone recommend a reasonably priced tour company for a day tour of Bogota, I am travelling on my own so prices are invariably higher for 1 person. One that is kind to solo travellers would be good!
      Appreciate any input

    • Arriving @ Bogota midnight and leaving early morning

      by tmp123 Online Now Jul 19, 2014 at 7:34 PM

      I was not thinking (clearly) when I made the booking but anyways, here it is:
      Arriving @ Bogota 11:25p.m. Next flight is @ 6a.m. So, essentially, I have 5 hrs to kill. My options are look for a place to get some rest within the airport OR nearby OR take a cab and drive around for 1-2 hrs before getting back to the airport.

      Can use some feedback for either option. Thanks …

      So I have a friend who's going to Bogota in August 2014 (until December) for an exchange.
      I am seriously thinking of visiting her in September, but before, I would like to know what is worth visiting around.
      So according to you, what are the nice places to go to in Bogota? Or any other interesting city in Columbia in general?

      I would like to really discover the columbian culture and traditions, not just staying in the city. So please feel free to let me know if you have any good idea! Thank you all!

      by bisel Online Now Mar 22, 2014 at 3:23 PM

      Any of you experts can figure out for me - a 4 1/2 day tour of Bogota?
      Museums, restaurants, major sights, different neighborhoods, some local shopping but not that much artesanias, Leather and some custom jewelry. Art - paintings if not expensive.
      Even a bit out of the city - if time permits.

    • First time in Bogota

      by alisonclough Online Now Jan 6, 2014 at 12:55 AM

      Hi. Me and my partner will be visiting Bogota for the first time this April. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on the best areas to stay and possibly some good hostels. We are a young couple so want to enjoy the best of the nightlife and also the sights that the city has to offer during the day . We are travelling on a budget so are not looking to stay in five star accommodation but want to be comfortable and above all feel safe, therefore want to avoid staying in areas that could potentially be dangerous. Thank you!!!

      Hi Everyone, what company do you recommend to do a day tour from Bogota to Suesca? We are traveling a week in December to Bogota and want to make a day trip to Suesca for my husband to do some rock climbing. Does anyone know of a company that will take us from Bogota and do rock climbing with my husband? He does sport climbing 5.10b. Are there other options like going there by bus and connecting with a company there instead? Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

      To see the Manchester United

      by Jorge_villlobos Online Now Nov 11, 2013 at 6:42 PM

      Hello friends, we have been thinking with a group of friends on where to go on this holiday season. Definitely we are going to go to Manchester to watch United play against West Ham United and Arsenal at the "Old Trafford". Is there a problem with the entrance to the stadium, by the fact of being a foreigner and have never gone there?.

      We also need a hotel to stay, but it's not too fancy, we have a limited budget. We found a good price "center polar Manchester street", you recommend us?

      We also want to know what other things can be done in time we hope to stay (December 18 - January 6).

      Thank you guys!

      re porting about potential interest for day trips out of bogota in april

      by kumalavula Online Now Feb 11, 2013 at 8:20 PM

      i am posting this in both languages, on the off chance that being bilingual will be advantageous, which it usually is :)

      i'll be in bogota for a week in mid april 2013 and am really motivated to do two day trips- one to laguna guatavita and the other to la mina de sal en zipaquira. i'd love to get connected with people who live in bogota who might want to go on either/both of these with their family, etc. i am at my happiest when i blend into the local environment, making friends and sharing experiences. i am happy to pay for gas, etc. or return the favor if you come to the pacific northwest in the u.s. is anyone interested or know anyone who might be a likely hiking/adventure candidate?

      voy a estar en bogota por una semana en abril de 2013 y tengo ganas de hacer dos viajes del día-uno a la laguna guatavita y la otra a la mina de sal en zipaquira. busco unas personas--bogatenos o extranjeros viviendo alla-que tengan interés en acompanarme con sus familiares, etc. lo que me encanta cuando viajo es hacer las conecciones con la gente y compartir las experiencias de la vida y la naturaleza. soy maestra de castellano en los ee.uu. y les ofrezco, en cambio, que yo les ayude si alguna vez esten en seattle. alguien conoce a alguien que tal vez tenga interes en pasar unos dos dias haciendo excursiones del día en abril?
