I really enjoyed Marcela's tour of Pasto on this busy workday in the city ... it was a privilege to hear the history of the region, the indigenous people, and those who came later. For me, it is important to learn all aspects of a place. Visually, the three churches that we visited were touchingly beautiful, and the street art spoke volumes without using words. The sky, with dark clouds one moment, then clear blue the next, seemed symbolic of the human condition, and the surrounding hills appeared to embrace this place. Thank you, Marcela, for an excellent tour and letting us get to know a little bit about Pasto.

A wonderful tour of the south of Colombia- the stories of the country, the people, and the architecture were fascinating!

We saw beauty and poverty on this tour. It was a travellers' town rather than a tourists' town. We learned a little of the struggle between indigianous people and the invading Spanish. I was interested in this tour as I have seen the north of Colombia with the guide Santi. The south is different and there were an awful lot of churches/graffiti/street art/boarded up shops. I will look out for similar tours again.

Very good explanation of the history & architecture of Pasco, and views of the traditional houses, churches & administrative buildings, and plazas, by Marcela.
