G Adventures Colombia Express Reviews

Amazing tour through the highlights of Colombia!

Felipe our guide was fantastic. He was passionate about Colombia, keen to show us how the country has developed from its well know history, into a charming and beautiful place to visit. The tour has lot of variety, from exploring the cities and culture, to hiking in the mountains. Sample the best coffee and even pick your own coffee beans! Felipe also took us to some of the best restaurants I had visited in the whole of South America. Colombia is such an interesting place, you won't be disappointed!!
