Colombia, one of the happiest countries in the world, has been affected by its bad reputation due to various negative situations such as being a drug producer, assassinations of political leaders and violent conflicts between different armed groups.
Today, this has changed a lot, and during this shared Tour, you will understand the causes, development and Colombian conflicts that have shaped our history to this day.
Join us for a real and interactive experience through some remarkable places and scars of the past. Learn about the development of the Colombian conflict in Bogotá that changed our history, its links with the drug cartels and the "Patron" behind it and the violence it imposed on the country.
At the end of this experience, you will have a more complete understanding of our political history, the war, its key actors, the fight against national and international drug trafficking, among others.
