Itinerary
Join this 5-hour tour and visit the highest point of Bogotá. At 3.152 meters above the sea level, Monserrate has become part of the capital’s history due to its high volume of Colombian and foreign visitors that arrive because of their Catholic beliefs, or because of the beautiful landscape that can be admired from here.

Your tour begins with hotel pickup in Bogotá by private vehicle for the drive to Monserrate. Once there, you will have one of three options to reach the top with your guide: ride the funicular, ride the aerial tramway, or take the walking path. Whichever one you do, will provide fabulous views of the city on the way up. 

At the top, explore the 17th-century cathedral, and shop for gifts or souvenirs at the vendor stalls. A lunch of Colombian cuisine is included. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

Excellent tour with excellent tour guide

Marcello Bitti was an excellent tour guide. The Monserrate Cathedral, the view and the people that works there made the trip an unforgettable memory. Then, the Plaza Bolívar and Museo de Oro experience was great. Thanks for sharing all your memories with us.
