How is my private tour?

Do you know what "PUEBLIAR" means?

This is a different form of tourism in which we travel a region or make a trip between cities, in a given period of time of minimum two days. Bogota Henry Tours suggests attractions that can be visited on the road, and you can also propose yours. It's an invitation to research and a bit of adventure. The real objective is to mix with the Colombian people in their environment and to know aspects of everyday life, landscape, villages, flavours, smells ... THE NATION!

The Charm of Andes!!!

On this tour you combine two major attractions in the center of the country: The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, the most visited tourist space Colombia and Villa de Leyva, world heritage by UNESCO.

In the vast tunnels have been carved spaces of extraordinary dimensions that house the areas that make up the Cathedral: The Way of the Cross, with its 14 stations that artistically represent the steps of Jesus on his way to crucifixion. The dome, which is the connection point, with an extraordinary message. Choir, overlooking the central nave of the Cathedral, 18 meters high. Narthex mazes, a space of purification. The Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary of Guasá, the three stages of the cathedral in their inconceivable spaces and a shopping area where you can buy handicrafts and souvenirs. this is a visit you can not miss!!
