    I was pleasantly surprised on how many activities had been planned and how well coordinated everything was. Our guide Carolina was great, knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and she handled every situation in a professional and competent manner. I was somewhat puzzled at some of the itinerary choices. The first day meeting in Bogota was at 2 pm, when she talked about the things to do in the city (also sent us an email of points of interest) and we afterward had a tour of the neighborhood also pointing out places of interest to visit; however, after that we only had time for dinner and then the following day we left around 11 for the next town. There was absolutely no time to do any of the wonderful things she suggested. My husband and I had gotten there the day before and we got to do a few things on our own. It would have made more sense to meet at 10 or 11 in the morning to leave us more time to explore, or spend and extra day in Bogota. Also the following day we did not get to Salento until the afternoon after flying there, and, again, upon arrival we met and had the town tour to point out wonderful places to eat, listen to music, shop, etc, but did not have any time to do any of those things. I had a lot of fun playing the game of tejo with the group, but was very frustrated that the itinerary did not leave time for anything else in the town except for a 15 minute quick shopping stop. The town was so pretty and there was so much to see it was sad to leave so soon. I think if we had left Bogota early in the morning we would have had more time in Salento. The hike to Cocora valley was the highlight of the trip. It was beautiful and the guide Luis was great. Also the stay in the hacienda and tour of coffee plantation was excellent. Another puzzling part of the itinerary was to put us through a very long bus ride to Medellin that ended being 14 hours long. I get that the circumstances were out of control of the guide and the company (there was an accident ahead with two trucks), but it was already known that there was road construction which already slowed the trip considerably. Adding to that the fact that the trucks were recklessly driving up and down steep hills in construction areas led me to believe that the accident was just waiting to happen, and also put us at risk. Carolina did an excellent job on keeping us calm, but it was also very hard on her and us to had to go through this. It would had made a lot more sense to just fly to the Medellin and avoid wasting an entire day.We loved Medellin, the trip to Santa Helena to the flower farm, and Cartagena. Apart from some of the drawbacks me and my husband had a wonderful trip full of memorable experiences. The hotels were all good. I highly recommend this trip!

    All planned activities were wonderful, the highlight being the hike to the valley of Cocora. All the guides were very knowledgeable, accommodating and went out of their way to make ours a pleasant experience. Carolina especially was very friendly, helpful, and did everything possible to make our trip a superior experience.

    Columbia is just incredible and so varied. From big cities, to hiking mountains, to colonial seaside towns we saw it all. And our leader was amazing!

    Colombia is just the most beautiful country, and it's beauty was only heightened by our passionate guide. She was a great advocate for her country and Intrepid. We stayed in boutique, locally owned accommodation in the best locations, ate like kings and really experienced the diversity of this country and its people. If you haven't been to Colombia, I couldn't recommend this trip more highly.
