Myself and two other friends have just returned from spending 10 days touring various parts of Colombia. We are 3 women in our 50’s who have travelled extensively and had never been to Colombia, and for two of us it was our first trip to South America. We chose to travel with Travel Local because of their flexibility with the itinerary, their prompt replies to our questions, and their competitive fees. We were not disappointed! José and the rest of the team were excellent. All of the guides and drivers that helped us were knowledgeable, helpful, pleasant to spend time with and very passionate about sharing their country. The guides truly were locals- in each region of our trip the guides had all been born and raised there. The hotel accommodations were outstanding- beautiful settings and exceptional service. We had a broad and varied range of tours and experiences, and we feel we had an excellent introduction to Colombia life, the culture, geography, history and cuisine. At all times , the Travel Local team of staff and guides communicated clearly and promptly, even with some last minute requests on our part. We felt safe and confident in the team at all times. I would love to return to spend time visiting the areas of Colombia we couldn’t fit in, and to spend more time in our favourite spots , such as the Zona Cafetero and Cartagena area. I can’t recommend this tour and organization more strongly!

Use Travel Local and their local partner Don’t miss Zona Cafetero and Cartagena Stay at least two weeks. A wonderful place to visit with many wonderful places to stay, visit and many good places to eat. Lots of varied activities for all ages
We especially our time in the Salento area and in Cartagena. The Hacienda Bambusa and Hotel Bantu were exceptional. We had one day ‘off’ from touring that we spent at Playa Koralia enjoying the beach, the breezes and the beautiful setting and it was magical.
