      The tour to Zipaquira was amazing! The Salt Cathedral was a once in a lifetime visit - we came away in awe of the construction of this giant cathedral inside a hand hollowed salt mine!
      Jorge was a fantastic tour guide and gave us all the information we could have wanted about the cathedral and all things Colombia! If you are in Bogota, you should definitely take the time to go to Zipaquira!

      Our guide spoke perfect English and was well informed. You could tell he had a lot of training and schooling in Columbia tourism. We could ask him anything and he knew the answer. Great tour!!

      Great short trip out of Bogota. Salt Cathedral has to be seen to be believed. Great guides too. Even the drive through Bogota was an experience (not for the faint hearted).

      Two of us went on this trip with driver/guide Angela. She was a fund of information about the cathedral and a patient guide. We had plenty of time to absorb the atmosphere and take our pictures although the cathedral was incredibly busy the day we went. Its a long drive to Zipaquira and Angela used the time to tell us everything we wanted to know about Bogota and Colombia. Well worth going.

      The tour was excellent. Our guide picked us up and took us to the front of the cathedral. She spoke excellent English she spent time in the US. We learned a lot. This is one of the most important things to do while visiting the Bogota area. The tour saved us a lot of time because we did not have to do any leg work. It was a private two person tour which was nice because we were able to go at our own pace.

      Angela was a fantastic guide... very knowledgeable and personable. The Cathedral was awesome... rarely in life to you witness a historical site like this being built in our own generation. Plus, Angela really knows and is proud of her country. She made visiting this site not only interesting but inspiring.

      This tour was amazing, well beyond what was expected. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided many interesting facts about this beautiful country. The photographs taken were breathtaking but still don't capture the cathedral. Only suggestion is to have time in the town
