The trip.me way of travel
Our trip was very well orgenized by Mathilde. She chose great boutique hotels, the guides were very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Our drivers were excellent . The program that we created together was perfect.
I worked with Mathilde on the phone and email back and forth about 6x to set an itinerary for a trip to Colombia.
Once set I made some changes that were handeld promptly and professionally.
This trip met and exceeded my expectations.
An absolutely wonderful trip and experience.
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.
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
