Santiago Vega Villa

I was born and raised in Bogotá although my family is from different parts of Colombia. This has been fundamental for me since my childhood holidays were always spent with relatives in Popayán, Medellín or Cali where I always wanted to discover something new. This is the origin of my passion for the history, culture, gastronomy and natural landscapes of Colombia and my hometown. I always wanted to share this passion and that's why I started working as a guide in Bogotá, however, I went further to invite travelers to explore every corner of Colombia and started planning and organizing trips that matched the experiences they wanted to live.

I was born and raised in Bogotá but I lived part of my life outside the country. Since I came back I started working as a guide and travel organizer. For me, Colombia is an incredible/unique country and it’s a pleasure for me to be able to share it with those who visit us. Not only does it have a unique gastronomy, music and culture, but it also has a fascinating history that blends pre-Columbian, European and African characteristics in a unique way and is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. 

Viviana Castro Casallas

I am from Bogota and I have been working in tourism for 4 years, mainly as a guide, but also in logistics, planning and experience development. My favorite part of living in Bogotá is the mountains and being able to escape the noise and traffic at any time. Since I found tourism, I learned not to take everything we have in our country for granted and I always take the opportunity to meet those who visit, to transmit my love for Bogotá and Colombia so that their contact with our culture, nature, food and people stays with them forever. 




He tenido varias experiencias de turismo en Bogotá con Explore and Discover y la verdad todas han sido inmejorables. Los guías son muy profesionales y tienen un gran carisma para mostrar lo mejor de nuestra ciudad, no solamente a extranjeros si no a los propios bogotanos. Las experiencias logran que la gente valore nuestra ciudad y que quiera volver.
Santiago es un gran ser humano, sensible frente a las necesidades del cliente y siempre dispuesto a realizar todo lo que esté a su alcance para que la experiencia sea inolvidable.


Fun and insightful! The best way to get to know Bogota through true local knowledge. My trip wouldn’t have been the same without it.
Santiago’s guided tour was invaluable and helped us learn about Bogotá and Colombia’s history in a pleasant, fun, and friendly way. We visited Montserrate, the Candelaria neighbourhood, the Museo del Oro and Museo Botero.
They were accommodating and flexible with our schedule and super warm and helpful.
Santiago was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions, always sprinkling fun anecdotes and facts about Bogota and Colombia’s history in every corner.


Depuis longtemps, voyageuse dans l’âme, je rêvais de découvrir le continent Sud - Américain. La Colombie a été le premier pays de mon périple et m’a profondément marquée.
Santiago a fait preuve d’une gentillesse et d’une patience incroyables : il m’a aidée à organiser un voyage loin des sentiers battus, en adéquation avec mes aspirations de voyageuse solitaire et j’ajoute en toute sécurité.
La Colombie m’a époustouflée par ses richesses : accueil chaleureux des habitants , diversité géographique et culturelle.
Merci à toi Santiago, qui m’ a accompagnée à deux reprises : jamais deux sans trois, je suis sûre de revenir te voir un jour.


El tour superó las expectativas de las 6 personas que lo tomamos. Santiago respondió todas nuestras preguntas además de darnos datos útiles e interesantes. El tiempo en cada lugar es perfecto y explican lo más importante de cada cosa sin que llegue a ser aburrido! Además Santiago es súper empatizo y abierto y crea un muy buen ambiente en el tour. Súper recomendado pedir el tour con su empresa!

I have traveled many times to Bogotá over the past 6 years. I take small tour groups to Colombia, so I often sign up for a variety of tours with several different companies and guides. My favorite, of the many guides I've employed, is definitely Santiago. His English is excellent, his knowledge of Colombian and world history is amazing, he is considerate of the abilities and desires of his clients and he is always very professional.
I highly recommend his services
