The Salt Cathedral Zipaquira was amazing and definitely worth visiting! However, you honestly do not really need to do the transfer through this company. While it was helpful, the entire Salt Cathedral experience involved us using an audio guide and we self-navigated our group

Dear Trish Thank you very much for your comment, it is very important for us. Regarding your comment, we always try to adapt the tour to our customers, if they speak English, French, portuguese, etc., our driver is programmed in those languages ​​and will try to do that service. However, this is not 100% (it is not even promised, actually), for that reason, we have developed our own audio guides on the cars and we invite people to become friends with other people who are in the same mood, this makes the trip more enjoyable. Here and anywhere in the world there is nothing better than buying with a good company, even more if the tour is recommended by hundreds of people, it is impossible to compare with an uber or a street transportation that often does not even know of Bogota, nor of tourism or how to handle tourists, while we are experts in this area. Now, if you want to risk (not because it is dangerous, but because it is a lottery) there will always be many options and variations, however we know that we are one of the best, our reputation talks. If you wanted to extend the time in the mine or the town, with us it is possible, you can tell the driver if there is another car on the way and arrange with him/her. Besides you also have internet in the vehicles, you have a person who can tell you about the city, places to go, eat, etc. In addition, we give you a map, you go with day insurance and we are constantly in service 24 hours/7 days. Furthermore, our cars are for tourism, modern, confortable and up-to-date papers. We do not know another company who cares so much about the country's reputation, about your experience and about our work as we do. The exercise of comparing companies and even with street services is excellent, but I can assure you that we fully comply with what we promise. Sometimes more, but never less. Thank you for your comment and we hope to serve next time.

Salt Cathedral is definitely worth visiting however, I'm not sure if booking a group tour added any value. The tour provides transportation to and from Zipaquira but doesn't add much value other than that. The tour guide did mention a few historical facts here and there on our

Response from BogotaPass, Director Comercial at Salt Cathedral Zipaquira - Group tour and daily departure
Responded 13 Feb 2020
Dear Shakee, We respect your opinion but the tour is much more than you comment. Always in a "new country" that you do not know, it is better to go with a responsable company that can help you step by step always focus on our clients and a high quality experience. We kno that always will be very difficult to meet everyone's expectations, so we try to be very clear in our information (descriptions) you see before buying. If you saw it in advance and you seemed short time at town and cathedral, perhaps our option does not fit you. Now, you would have told us and normally we have another tour that returns around 5pm of the cathedral, in that case you could tell us that you want to stay longer, that´s it. It is a tour that is very punctual, with a standard experience and yet ready to always give you the best. We are the only agency that does not line up in the attraction because we already have commercial agreements and because they have known us for a long time as good workers. Thank you very much for your comment because it will always make us grow.

I almost didn’t do this trip because the reviews were so mixed. So many people said they didn’t understand it and don’t waste your time or money - DON’T LISTEN! First, the town of Zipaquirá is wonderful. It has a super historic and Spanish feel to it. I loved just wandering

Responded 26 Dec 2019
thanks so much Alyssa, how good is to listen this kind of comments, the idea is that you always visit the most important of each destination regardless of whether it is very touristy or not, if it is worth it or not, or if it is cheap or not. Each person has a relative perspective and it is very very difficult to guess what the person thinks or wants, there is nothing like trying it out by yourself. We hope you liked it a lot, we had a great time and enjoyed our work every day, we are always trying to improve and I think that is seen in this result (with the comment). Thank you for choosing us and we hope to be your local expert next time.

My adventure to the Salt Cathedral started with a timely pick-up where I’m staying. My guide, Lorenzo, looked familiar as he had sent a greeting and a photo the previous afternoon. As a solo traveler, knowing who to expect is so important. Communicating regarding pick-up
