I am a certified tour guide, passionate about my country, our history, and our culture.

SPOILER! Santander has lots of history, we are the land of revolutionaries.
I'm here to help you discover the best parts of Santander and know its history, the pretty and the not so pretty, if you want, you can practice and/or learn Spanish and local slang.

One of our qualities is the kindness of our people and their willingness to receive "strangers" and make them feel at home, especially in the villages. So do not hesitate to ask me about our culture and customs, even if you still don't know how to use our local currency very well, I will do my best to help you. I hope to see you soon! Aleja P.

Where you'll be

If this is your first time in Bucaramanga or you haven't had the time to discover it when you have visited us, this tour is for you! It will take us around 3 to 3.5 hours in total, including time for photos, rest, and a small local snack (my treat!).

This tour is designed to walk the streets and enjoy the parks. Join me on this tour and I guarantee that you won't notice that 3 hours have passed!

Our guide was on time, spoke excellent English, and was clearly knowledgeable and connected to the topic. We enjoyed seeing the city and hearing so much of the history of the city.

We received a very personal tour that gave us a very informative history of Bucaramunga. Her English is excellent and her knowledge of the subject is personal and wide-ranging.

Alejandra is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, who speaks Spanish and English. The start point of the tour was easy to find and the tour started on time. My tour was flexible and we were able to take advantage of other cultural activities that were happening in the city at the time. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, or Alejandra as guide on any other tour. 5 stars.

Alejandra was extremely warm and professional. She showed sensitivity to my interests and took a personal interest in me. I felt safe with her in that I could easily trust her guidance as we strolled through her charming city. As a Professor of Latin American Studies, I immediately sensed the profundity of this woman’s knowledge and good “people skills”. She provided details about the entire State of Santander that few others could... I highly recommend this experience with Alejandra without reservation! Profe Steve

Highly recommended tour whether you are from Bucaramanga or not. If you are a local, chances are, unless you are a historian, that you would know and understand many things about the history of the city and some of its urban myths. And if you are a foreigner, you will discover beautiful things about this small gem of the Colombian East. Alejandra is knowledgeable and makes the three-hour walk a breeze. You won't feel it. Than you Alejandra, it was great!
