As we commemorate 200 years of Colombian independence, BogotaTravelGuide.com and the Gondola Theater invite you to the Bicentenary Tour of Bogota which consists of a visit through Bogota's historic city center and an introduction to many other wonders the city has to offer. The tour of downtown Bogota also consists of the play titled: "Stories that walk our streets" (Historias que caminan nuestras calles) which was awarded with award: Premio de creación Localidades Culturalmente Activas 2009. The play is about six characters that left a trait in the streets of la Candelaria. Throughout the play they settle back in the places where they lived, taking over the streets, museums, and old houses of Bogota's neighborhood where the events of the Colombian independence were first seen.
- Walking tour through la Candelaria (approx. 2 hours 30 min)
- Presentation of the monologues about life and play of characters.
- Tour guide with stories of bicentenary (bilingual upon request).
- Canelazo or hot beverage.
