    2.0 - Rather poor

    This trip was not what I was expecting, as there was a clear lack of communication between Bamba Experience and those they work with locally. The one tour that was booked in Cartagena for me never happened, as the pickup happened at the wrong time and the guide left my hostel without me. I instead sat waiting for an hour for transport that never came. When I emailed Bamba, they apologized and refunded me $40, however, I would much rather have had a tour than $40. I planned my day around a 2pm pickup that never happened. Had a known that it was not going to happen, I would have booked my own day tour. Instead I saw very little of Cartagena. On the day of transport from Cartagena to Santa Marta, I was waiting for my transport at 9am as it had previously said on my itinerary, however, just the night before it had changed to 10am. The itinerary can change at any moment do you need to keep checking it. It’s a good thing that I was early, however, because the transport came at 9:30 and was carrying about 10 other people so I’m not sure they would have waited for me if I hadn’t shown up until close to 10am. On the day of the Tayrona day tour, the first 3.5 hours is just driving around in different transports picking people up all over the place and moving between vans and buses. The important thing to know here is that **you need to be fluent in Spanish for this tour.** The guide nor the drivers did not speak any English, not one word. Any one point, she kept yelling at me in Spanish and although I can understand a lot of Spanish in Ecuador, I was told by one of the other tourists who spoke some English that she was using a lot of Colombian only words so it would be very difficult for me to understand. The helpful tourist explained to me that the guide was yelling at me because she was asking for my payment. I tried explaining that this tour was booked through an agency and should be paid for already but as Bamba doesn’t give you any specific reference number or receipt for your specific tours or transports, I had no proof of this. By the end of the day, she finally got in touch with someone from her company who confirmed that my ticket had been paid for, but it was quite stressful given the language barrier. All in all, different tour companies and transports are used on the ground and booked from a distance by Bamba, so for me, I would have had a better experience booking it all myself, as I would have at least known what was going on and could have confirmed that tours were done in English, for example. The hostels in Colombia all have easy ways to set up tours through the front desk when you check in- I would recommend this instead of going through Bamba.

    I would like to know what is included on this trip? Are hotels and transportation, park fees all included? How much will it cost for snorkelling and how much would it cost to rent gear? Is there somewhere I can store my huge suitcase while we are touring the city? At the end of the trip, instead of taking me to the airport can you take me to another location (I need to go to the expo tour office for the La Ciudad Perdida tour)? Thanks for your help.
