Love street art? Whether it’s political or just pure art, Bogotá’s walls are a great outdoor canvas. We’ll take you pedaling off the beaten path to cruise some of Bogotá’s little-known streets and alleys to see the city’s wonderful, opinionated street murals. We can arrange a private bike tour guided by a bilingual local graffiti artist, who’ll explain to you the culture and philosophy behind the city’s street art.
