The trip.me way of travel
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Colombia. Stephan [Camila's colleague] organised a comprehensive itinerary and kept in touch with us until we were satisfied. His customer service was excellent! Our guide Fabio from the agency was friendly, informative, patient (he waited for a long time in the shop with us while I chose an emerald), and a good driver. We always felt safe and secure. The colonial Spanish villages were a highlight. Nancy, our guide from Palenque Tours was good fun and extremely knowledgable. She altered a part of our itinerary when we asked her to do so with no fuss and prompt service - the sign of a good guide. It was unfortunate that a guide was unavailable for the gold panning demonstration and we had to walk 6kms in hot and humid conditions for the substitute guide for a not very interesting experience. While our accommodation was mostly fantastic (a highlight was the isolated Finca Gaucari- a truly magical spot), one accommodation that fell short was La Casona in Jardin which was noisy, mosquito-ridden and with an uncomfortable bed, which was disappointing as Jardin was utterly captivating. On the whole, a fascinating holiday with diverse experiences.Read More Read More Less
Trip and services provided by Mathilde were in accordance to our expectations and valued with high professionality throught the duration of our trip.
We had a wonderful time in Colombia. The hotels were all wonderful especially La Passion in Cartagena. It was nice to stay in unique hotels rather than the typical tourist hotels. The guides were knowledgeable, spoke English well, and made sure we had a good experience. Mathilde kept us informed and checked with us during the trip to make sure all was going according to plan.Read More Read More Less
All the local trips and guides were very good. Timing worked well. Hotels were good. One problem was the transfer from San Marta to Cartagena - a different contractor needs to be used as it was potentially dangerous
Both my husband and I was very satisfied with the different guides & the arrangements on our 2 week visit to Colombia; Bogota & Zipaquirà, Letitcia & the Amazones, Peirera & the Coffe District, Neiva and the archaeological parc in San Augustin and finally Cartagena och the Islas de Rosario. We loved the beauty of the country and the friendliness of its people! We defintiely recommend a visit to Colombia.....before the tourist invasion.Read More Read More Less
