Jacqui de Klerk Lonely Planet

Long-standing city-tour savants Destino Bogotá have gone national: The re-branded Impulse Travel is an excellent choice for two- to-five-day round-trip excursions from Bogota to must-see destinations like Caño Cristales and PNN Tayrona; playful city and area tours including salsa lessons, tejo nights, food tours; and social initiatives like the highly recommended Breaking Borders tour to Barrio Egipto.

More standard fare like Guatavita/Zipaquirá, La Chorrera hikes and coffee-farm visits are also offered. The office is inside the very hip Tierra Firme co-working space.
