On this self-guided GPS audio walking tour of traditional Bogotá you'll be transported from colonial times to the 21st century. It's a route designed to put you in touch with the cultural life of this city that has grown from a small village up in the mountains to a multicultural hotspot.

You'll walk in the footsteps of Gabriel García Márquez, the Nobel literature prize recipient, and you'll get a glimpse of the places that have made Bogotá a cultural capital. If you like, you can stop at traditional cafes and delis along the way, or at the local market, where you'll see the mix of races that constitute the Colombian people. You'll also have the chance to buy some gifts to take back home.

The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
