About
This beautiful municipality located 3 hours from Bogotá, is a capsule that catches us in the nineteenth century. Its geography is very appreciated by the large amount of ammonites (prehistoric marine fossils) that underlie the soil, reminding us that millions of years ago it was a territory dominated by the ocean. Do not stay without knowing one of the colonial jewels of the country, it was also a very important site in the consolidation of the independence of the country from the Spanish Kingdom. During the trip you will have the opportunity to get to know the municipality of Ráquira, which is a living stamp of Colombian Andean culture. Our Travel agency is certified with Covid Protocols and has Check In and Safe Travels Stamp. Drivers, guides and attractions visited are also checked before and during the tour.

Thanks Salma, you had very good times with Alex, Rodolfo, Pierre, Andres and Deissy who were aware of your experience in Bogotá. You saw a team of professionals, dedicated and focused on your experience. We left with 1 passenger and you had a private tour being a group one, how lucky! In addition, you experienced one of the best biosafety protocols in Colombia, because it is not only the certification but the commitment that our clients feel safe. We hope to help you in the future and count on these friends here in Colombia.

I had an excellent time with Alex to Villa de Leyva. I learned so much about Colombia on this tour. Alex was very professional. He always wore a mask and the bus was very clean. He drove us safely to Bogota and back. Gracias!

What a fantastic day!
Mar 2020
As I was the only person who had booked for this particular date it was like having a private tour with my knowledgeable driver and guide, Alex. He spoke very good English and I also used the opportunity to practise my Spanish. Again as the only customer he was able to tweak the trip to include things I wanted to see, and miss out the things I did not want to see. It is a long day but so worth it. Villa de Leyva is an incredible place to visit and the terracotta house was absolutely amazing. I cannot recommend this trip enough and Alex added so much to it with his knowledge, not only of the places we visited, but of Columbia in general.

The trip was a long journey but worth the trip if you have a spare day in Bogotá.

Marcelo was an excellent guide on the day and had a great sense of humour. He helped made the trip enjoyable for us and he was very friendly.

I would recommend this trip highly and you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic day trip to Villa de Leyva! Also included visit to Boyaca, terra-cotta house, monastery and winery.

Tour guide Alex was extremely knowledgeable as well as very fun and welcoming.

Mix up with over payment for the tour ( my fault!) and refund was provided immediately.

A really great experience, totally recommend this tour!

Villa De Leyva Small Group Tour
We had a wonderful time with our driver guide Alex. He was bilingual and very knowledgeable and proud to share all the beautiful sites throughout our journey to and from Villa De Layva.

The van was roomy and comfortable for the 5 of us plus Alex. Roads were closed and traffic was horrendous on our return due to the National Independence Day celebrations. But Alex knew all the right detours to get us back to our hotel without incident. He was a very safe driver. We would highly recommend Alex for this tour!

Alex is a wonderful guy, however all our team is excellent, you may try them later ;) You went in a complicated but beautiful day, 20th july and 7th Agust are official for us, so these are crazy here! Villa de leyva is a magical town people must visit, nevertheless is kind of expensive in a private way, so for that reason we desgined this daily a group tour with excellent rates per person. Visitors now have the oportunity to go there in a fun a pretty version with basic inclusions but high quality, as always we do. Thanks so much, enjoy our complementary city tours
