Overview
We will walk around Candelaria district, the oldest and most important neighborhood in Bogotá. We will talk about history, geography, currrent social and political situation in Colombia. We get involved with our culture by drinking chicha! The most traditional fermented drink in the city, part of our indigeneous heritage. Also we will try some local snacks made with corn and in the end of the tour we will play the gunpowder game, better known as Tejo, a funny drinking game played in the prehispanic times. This tour gives you an entire idea about the Colombia's capital context. You will never get bored due we talk about different topics, interact with locals, visit the most important spots in the city and get the max of the artistic and historical value of all the streets and alleys we walk trough. Join us in the oldest walking tour in the city!

Juan was our guide and he was so friendly and welcoming. He also knew so much because he was a local. We tried so many local fares (drink and food and games) and had so much fun! I would definitely go again!
