That price seems high. Is that with a private driver? I didn’t notice any groups. It is more of a self guided tour with audio phones. The cathedral is about 45 minutes out side of Bogota

You can book a tour through Trip Advisor. You are picked up at your hotel around 8:00 and the tour lasts around 8 hours. At the entrance you are given an audio guide which accommodates a variety of languages, French included.
