Take a look at some reviews that previous travelers have shared about our tour: Free Colombian Conflict Tour: War, Drug Trafficking & Peace !
I absolutely loved this walking tour with Santiago!! He was extremely informative and clearly knew a lot about Colombian history and politics. He delivered it in an interesting, understandable way and was very patient, encouraging everyone to ask questions. This created even more interesting conversation and a relaxed environment. Santiago is clearly very passionate about the subject. One of the best things we did in Bogotá, it really gives context to the country you are traveling in. Would recommend it to all!!
Santiago is an excellent tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Colombia and Bogota. He can answer any questions about the history of conflict, politics, and law. For example, when I asked him why so many Colombians voted against the first peace agreement between the government and FARC, he provided me with a clear and concise explanation about the number of seats that would be allocated to FARC in comparison to those offered to minorities. Santiago takes care to present both sides of any conflict or political event. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in politics, history, and/ or philosophy.
Incredibly informative tour on the political history of Colombia from the independence of the country to the present. All landmarks were relevant and well integrated. This tour is a must if you are interested in the politics and history of colombia.
