Overview
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.

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
