Bogota, Cartagena & Rosario Islands

This private Colombia tour is perfect for travelers wanting to combine in-depth private cultural touring in and around Bogota and Cartagena with a relaxing private yacht cruise among the Rosario Islands.

Begin in Bogota, the lively, high-altitude capital of Colombia. During private touring with an expert guide and driver, visit the city's most interesting museums and historic neighborhoods. See spectacular ancient gold artifacts at the impressive Museo del Oro (Gold Museum) and work by famed Colombian artist Fernando Botero at the Botero Museum. In the colonial-era La Candelaria district, walk the cobblestone backstreets, and see the ornate interiors of the Church of Santa Clara. Also see important landmarks surrounding Bolivar Square, such as the National Capitol, the Palace of Justice and the Primary Cathedral of Bogota. Visit colorful Paloquemao Market to learn about Colombian produce and sample delicious local fruit and other foods. Also see buildings adorned with elaborate graffiti. If desired, ride a cable car or tram up Monserrate, a mountain towering above the city center, for expansive views and a visit to the pilgrimage church on top. One day, enjoy a private excursion to the Salt Cathedral, a church carved into the tunnels of an underground salt mine outside the town of Zipaquira. Other options include browsing the boutiques of the affluent Zona Rosa neighborhood and visiting Quinta de Bolivar, the former house and gardens of Simon Bolivar. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange private cooking classes, guided hikes in the hills outside Bogota, an excursion outside the city to a coffee farm and tickets to performances at the renowned Teatro Colon.

Conclude in Cartagena, a historic port on the Caribbean Sea and Colombia's most beautiful city. During a private walking tour of the walled Old Town—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—stroll through picturesque cobblestone streets where colorful colonial buildings are draped with bougainvillea. Walk through Plaza Bolivar, a leafy square surrounded by colonial architecture, and perhaps catch sight of Palenquera women wearing vibrant clothing and balancing bowls of fruit on their heads. Visit the colonial-era Church and Monastery of San Pedro Claver, and, if desired, see the Palace of the Inquisition, an attractive building with a grisly past. One day, venture with your private guide and driver to the Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, the mammoth fortress that protected Cartagena from invaders; visit Convento de la Popa, a monastery on the highest point in the city, for panoramas over Cartagena and the harbor; or perhaps explore local neighborhoods, such as Getsemani and Bocagrande. Also enjoy a private rum and chocolate tasting and time to shop for local designs, crafts and fashions at upscale boutiques. Another day, enjoy a private yacht cruise to the Rosario Islands and enjoy time to snorkel and relax on a beach. One evening, if desired, enjoy a private salsa class. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange additional activities, such as a private food tour or canoe ride through mangroves, or an excursion to the Cartagena Botanical Garden.
