Tour description

This 8-hour tour is designed for those who want to get a comprehensive idea of the city, including the innovative Metro System and the well-recognized Christmas lights. From top attractions throughout the Metro System to the famous Christmas lights, get the most of your visit while you get a taste of the local gastronomy along the way. The tour may be steered around according to your preferences and stops can be made during your journey. Feel free to start with early lunch or you may also do an early dinner instead in order to catch the spectacular Christmas lights later at night.

Once your bilingual driver has met you at the hotel in the afternoon, the tour will head downtown in an air-conditioned car. The first stop is at Botero Plaza where 23 amazing statues of the most popular local artist reside. There is enough time to walk around and take the best postcard pictures. There are convenient facilities to grab snacks at any time, so it's recommended to bring cash and/or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards. After a guided visit, your guide will wait for you to go on to the next stop further north and ride the cable car that will allow you to appreciate the innovative Santo Domingo Library which was awarded by the Bill Gates foundation due to its positive impact on the community.
