At Bogota & Beyond we aim to one day change the way people travel by making the experience totally authentic with local interaction and sustainability. We want tourism to be "one for one".
How do we do this?
Simple, we are creating a foundation upon where locals have the opportunity to learn about their country, learn another language and the business of tourism. These same locals then apply all their skills they have learned by taking foreigners all around Colombia on tour. They will then get to visit parts of the Country they have never been but have been studying for. The goal is that both the "Tourist" and "Local" will be sharing a new experience together as one. The Local would have been studying all about this region in
anticipation for this tour. The Tourist, well they would have been counting down the working hours until they got to travel the country.
For a Local:
They will get paid a salary and not just a Tour once off payment.
While they are not touring they are learning
They get to travel around their own Country the same way a foreigner is able to.
For a Paying Guest:
They will see directly where there money is being spent within the training of the Local guide
The experience will be more authentic than any other tour they have ever done.
Want to be apart of this simply send us an email.
At the moment we currently take out a group of Foreigners that get the opportunity to meet the local community, play tejo, milk a cow, do a short hike in the area and then give back by offering to help the locals with fixing the track, improving their english and english signs and whatever else the community may need.
Cost is generally around 65,000 COP to ensure drivers, park fees and lunch is paid for.
