Best Free Tours in Bogota

Although Bogota is the fourth largest city in South America, it is still a relatively off the beaten path destination and ideal for those seeking a true local experience! Book one of the Free Walking Tours in Bogota and explore its cobbled streets and colonial architecture and understand how Colombia overcame its violent past. Bogota is a unique city, and despite all the hardships it endured, it has become one of the cultural capitals on the South American continent. Why don't you join a Bogota City Tour with a local guide? You will learn about indigenous people and their ancient rituals, how the arrival of the Spanish Conquerors and the colonization transformed this land, and the long fight for the independence of Colombia represented at Bolivar Square. Another must-do tourist activity is booking a Free Street Art Tour around the vibrant streets of the city. There are also Bogota Free Walking Tours by night to explore the best nightlife with a local.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Bogota

A highlight on most free tours in Bogota is the not-to-be missed colonial, colorful buildings of La Candelaria, the oldest district in the city. Walking along the charming cobbled streets, you will get the chance to see the renowned Colon Theater, the 17th-century San Francisco Church, and many popular museums, including the Botero Museum. Next to here is the Gold Museum which houses over 30,000 pieces of gold. The museum focuses on the deeply symbolic and spiritual value that gold has for pre-Hispanic cultures in Colombia. It’s a fascinating museum and a must-see for all visitors. Then stop off at the Plaza Bolivar, home to Bogota’s governmental institutions. This square has witnessed some of Colombia’s most turbulent moments, from its fight for independence to Pablo Escobar’s infamous siege of the Palace of Justice. Bogota also boasts a surprising number of green spaces, such as the Simon Bolivar Central Park.

Things to Do in Bogota

Bogota is a thrilling city with plenty to keep you occupied. Start the day in La Candelaria for colorful buildings and amazing street art. Graffiti has reached an unprecedented degree of perfection in Colombia, so take a stroll along bohemian neighborhoods, meet local artists, and learn about the political and cultural significance of this popular form of expression. When you are feeling hungry, make sure you try some of the mouth-watering local cuisine like ajiaco a delicious chicken stew with potatoes and corn. For a mid-morning snack, try the 'chocolate completo' -hot chocolate, cheese, and fresh bread…yum! For those who enjoy international cuisine aim for Zona G, where you can find some of the best restaurants in Bogota. For an escape from the city then head towards Cerro Monserrate. Here you will have the opportunity to climb one of the most iconic hills in this scenic capital and take in the dizzying panoramic views.
