Jacqui de Klerk Lonely Planet

Long-standing city-tour experts Destino Bogotá have gone national: the rebranded Impulse Travel is an excellent choice for two- to-five-day round-trip excursions from Bogotá to must-see destinations such as Caño Cristales and PNN Tayrona; playful city and area tours, including salsa lessons, tejo (type of sport which involves throwing metal discs into holes in a wooden target box) nights and food tours; and social initiatives like the highly recommended Breaking Borders tour to Barrio Egipto.

Visits to Guatavita/Zipaquirá, La Chorrera hikes and coffee-farm trips are also offered. The office is inside the very hip Tierra Firme co-working space.
