A Recent Review of this tour

The Guatavita Laguna tour starts as a drive north through the wondrous countryside. On the way there you travel one route. On the way back you approach the city from another. The laguna and the surrounding area are beautiful. I would suggest that you first tour the Gold Museum in Bogota before visiting the laguna. You will see at the museum items that were laid in the laguna. Rodrigo is a great host all along the tour. He is very friendly and very knowledgeable. It was a memorable and wonderful tour.
