Discover the process of extraction and commercialization of one of the most valued precious stones in the world with this free emerald tour of Bogota.

Free Emerald Tour

We will meet up at the time of your choice in front of the Gold Museum in Bogota. From there, we will start the free tour of the Colombian emerald. Do you know how this mineral is extracted? How much is a jewel wearing emerald worth? We will reveal these fascinating facts and more, along the way.

First of all, we will talk about the process of formation of this precious stone that, together with coffee, is one of the most important products of Colombia. While we solve all your doubts, we will walk to Rosario square, the place where all kinds of minerals and emeralds are on display.

As we browse the stalls in the square, we will learn all about the emerald market of Colombia. Besides talking about the commercialization of these jewels, we will reveal the extraction process and the mining tradition of the country.

Afterward, we will visit the Emerald Trade Center, a building dedicated to the emerald market and the processes of carving and embedding these precious stones. And if you like, you'll have the chance to get one of these beautiful emerald pieces as a souvenir.

After learning all about Colombian emeralds, we will conclude our fantastic free tour.

Groups

In our free tour, we do not accept reservations for more than 6 people. If you are a bigger group, you must book the private tour of the emerald in Bogota.
