If you believe that the best way to really get to know a new place is by walking around, then this private tour is perfect for you! On this Grand Candelaria Private Walking Tour you will discover the true Candelaria, its main sights, hidden gems and our favorite spots. Be amazed by the largest collection of pre-hispanic figures at the Gold Museum and enjoy the art of one of the most prominent living artist at the Botero Museum and even visit a heart moving museum that is not listed (yet) in guide books.

But 8 hours in one place is a lot...
Trust us, is not! La Candelaria is the most important neighborhood of Bogotá. Therefore, most of the landmarks are located there, plus it is full with cool hidden gems.

Would you like to try great local food?
We will have lunch at Origen Bistro, an awarded restaurant known for its unique approach to local gastronomy and our personal favorite restaurant to have traditional dishes.
