Among the variety of tours available in the city there is one that involves incredible art, interesting stories and shows a lot about Colombian and urban culture, the graffiti tour.
The walls painted all around the historic center by different artists express their different political, social, cultural views on the issues that affect the world we live in, and by taking this incredible tour you have the opportunity to see and understand the messages these artists are sending out though their art.
The graffiti tour is considered one of the best things to do in Bogotá. All of the guides share their love for urban art and are directly involved with the scene, either because they are artists themselves, organize street art events or own an urban art gallery. In any case, they usually know personally the artists they talk about.
Starting in the historical center, you’ll go walking through different streets where the guide is telling the characteristics of each mural, his painting technique and the message that the author wants to present. Then the route goes through the streets of x neighborhood, which has colorful murals, full of life and color.
After two hours the tour ends at the international center where the guide includes impressions, views of each of the visitors and those who want to give a donation to the guide is welcome.
