Tour Itinerary

DAY 1, Friday - Depart for Colombia

Overnight: Bogota
Meals: Dinner

DAY 2, Saturday - Bogota City Tour
Start the day with a walking tour of the colonial section of La Candelaria, stopping at Plaza de Bolivar, the main square of the city. Surrounding the square you'll see the Cathedral, Palace of Congress, the Cardinal's Palace and the colonial church of El Sagrario. Next, to the astonishing Gold Museum, where you'll see the world's greatest collection of pre-Hispanic native gold crafts. Continue to the Fernando Botero Museum, housing many of the paintings and sculptures of this world-famous contemporary Colombian artist. Let the Colombian lifestyle sink in during an included coffee break. Then, stop to play an energetic local game of Tejo*, the national sport of Colombia. Originally, gameplay consisted of hurling golden discs into a hole, at a distance of about 65 feet. However, the conquistadors did make their own subtle improvement to the game; they added explosives. Today, the game is played with metal disks in fields across the country. You will learn how to play and try your hand at throwing the disk. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the city independently, with its more than 60 galleries and museums and shops with the latest fashions or, join the optional Funicular Train Ride** up to Monserrate for great views of the city. You will also visit the 17th-century church and its El Señor Caído Shrine, a popular place for pilgrims and prayers for years. Tonight, join your Tour Manager for a walking tour to Parque de la 93 and its surroundings with many pubs and restaurants showing you the exciting nightlife of Bogota*Colombian laws prohibit all people under 18 from entering places where tejo is played**Funicular train ride may be substituted with a cable car ride without notice

At the walled city, walk through the multicolored houses and buildings of the Old City of Cartagena. Visit San Pedro Claver Sanctuary and Church built in the mid-17th century. Then, on to "The Vaults", archways built in the late 1700's, within the walled city that were used to store armaments and later as a prison. Today, the entire area is a thriving artisans' center with beautiful local handicrafts. Remainder of the day is at leisure

    This is the first group tour we have taken but will not be our last. Our Affordable Tours agent John was just great. The tour manager Giuliana and all of the local guides were amazing. This trip far exceeded our expectations. The hotels and transportation were top notch. After talking with people from other competing tour companies this far exceeded theirs. We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to our next tour with Gate1 through Affordable Tours.
