    5.0 - Excellent

    I really enjoyed this trip - it was my first foray to South America, and my first with Solo Travellers and was an excellent introduction. The local guide was well informed, incredibly enthusiastic and worked hard to make sure that everyone's needs were met. The trip was well paced - there were a few internal flights and a couple of long coach trips - but these were necessary to ensure that we saw as much as possible. The accomodation throughout was excellent - in particular the eco hotel on the Caribbean coast - where the hand crafted rooms with mosaic bathrooms (most of which had views of the sea) blended beautifully into the tropical foliage. The food throughout was great and the local beer was cheap and tasty. Colombia is a beautiful (and vast) country. Despite its rather violent recent past, I felt safe throughout the trip. The country is so huge, that a two week trip can only give you a snapshot of what it's like. This trip gave us a good overview of two of the five different geographical areas of the country - ie the Andes and the Caribbean. The cities we visited are full of lovely spanish style colonial buildings, great murals, cobbled streets, art and culture - including museums and galleries, street art, handicrafts, great bars and restaurants. The countryside was lush with tropical vegetation including all the fruits you could possible want and the biggest avocados ever! Hopefully the peace accord between the FARC and the government will hold and Colombia will be on the up from now on. It is a country with so much to offer the tourist - I will definitely be going back.

    4.5 - Excellent

    A thoroughly enjoyable trip. Our guide, Juan Ocoru, was with us throughout the trip and he did a very good job. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I feel this holiday would benefit from a couple of extra days; one at Villa de Leyva, where you could include another activity, eg. visit the lake and one at the Palomino area, so that we could have a day relaxing in the beautiful surroundings and another to visit to Tayrona National Park. It is a busy schedule up to that point and a relaxing day on the beach was much appreciated! We visited the salt cathedral en route to Villa de Leyva. Well worth adding to the itinerary. The trip introduced us to much of the diversity of Colombia and was very well put together. The only part I think should be dropped is the optional trip to Los Rosarios. It was truly awful and not at all as described. We were totally misled, spent hours hanging around waiting to get to our destination, only to find it was far from the relaxing paradise we were led to believe it would be. The time allowed there was reduced from 4hrs to 2, which, as it happened was more than enough. The beach was overcrowded and there was a constant smell of fuel from the jet skis, banana boat and other vessels which were very close to the shore, darting in and out amongst the swimmers. Very dangerous. Apart from that, I would thoroughly recommend this trip.

    Our trip to Colombia was fantastic. A great mix of people that gelled well and were equally as happy to do their own thing. The visits to different parts of the country were planned well and we explored the mountains, coffee plantations, salt mines and contrasting busy and peaceful beaches. Impressive hotels were chosen with care. Kate was just lovely and the guide, Juan Zambrano Ocoro knew his stuff too. They were thorough and also flexible with us as a group and the routine as necessary.

    Enjoyed a fabulous 12 day tour of beautiful Colombia expertly led by Kate and our exceptional Colombian guide Juan Zambrano Ocoro. Tour was from Bogota to Cartagena with many stops in between and some great hotels including a stay on a coffee plantation and an Ecohotel yards from the beach.Highly recommended.
