My husband and I had a fabulous 8-day trip to Colombia and were extremely impressed with this travel agency. Every member of the team, from the agency owners through the local guides and drivers, was extremely knowledgeable, eager to please, professional, passionate about Colombia, personable and a pleasure to be with. The itinerary was exactly what we were looking for given the short time we had, and the experiences were outstanding.
For the most part our trip was flawless. There was one hiccup in respect of the itinerary and a couple of minor issues with accommodation. However, the manner in which these issues were dealt with was exemplary. I would wholeheartedly recommend this travel agency for anyone who wants a truly unique insight into the country and its people.
Our visit to Comunas 1 and 3 in Medellín with members of a local youth collective who are working to effect community change through the arts - street art and grafitti, music, dance, poetry, visual art, etc.
Our day in Santa Elena where we started off learning about hydrangea production on a flower farm and then visited the home of Doña Leopoldina where we learned about the history, culture and traditions of the "silleteros", those who carry flowers on their backs during the annual flower festival in Medellín.
Dinner at the multi-talented Alejandro's, with our driver/translator for the evening.
Given the short time we had I wouldn't do anything differently. If we had a few more days I would build in time to further explore Bogotá and Medellín on our own.
