What you'll do

We will meet up at 12:12 Hostels where we will offer you a nice cup of Colombian Coffee. We will drive in private car to the most amazing and exclusive Emerald Shop, where they will explain you about the history of Emeralds in our Country, as Colombia is the country in the world with the best quality of emeralds. Then you have the perfect opportunity to buy Emeralds, they have a big offer of jewelry and stones, for all budgets, all given with their certificate of authenticity. Then walking distance, we will go to the nicest Colombian Handicrafts Shop, where they will show us the process on how they are handmade, and then you will have the opportunity to buy the nicest Colombian Souvenirs. Definitely both places you will not find them on your own. Going to this hidden shops is a great idea, as they give value to the pieces and not value because your are a tourist, as most of shops where tourists arrive by their own they are charge a lot for pieces that cost much less just because they are tourists. We will drive then back to the Hostel where we will drop you off. I will give you as a courtesy the City Guide of Bogota, GO GUIA DEL OCIO, so you can enjoy Bogotá to the fullest.
