1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

All of it was memorable with amazing sights and some wonderful weather at the coast.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Hot and cold weather clothing required! Lots of mosquito repellent too. Do learn Spanish as not much English spoken.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely, especially our great consumption of Coco Rum produced by the indigenous people of Tierradentro! We were also very conscious, as are the Colombians, of the need to reduce plastic usage. The use of local guides assists

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

An excellent trip with an excellent guide in Juan Se - would recommend.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The lush, beautiful scenery in the South of Colombia.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be aware that so many of the activities our tour operator mentioned are NOT available, i.e. horse-riding, bicycle tour, tubing, white water rafting - latter not allowed for over 60's. This caused major disappointment for many of the group.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not particularly.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Tiring (lots of long road journeys, plus several flights due to the size of the country) but a fabulous vacation nonetheless!

Read the operator's response here:

Thanks for your feedback. We are so pleased that you had a good time in Colombia. Regarding optional excursions being not available, age restrictions were implemented by the providers of these excursions and we were not informed until your tour went through San Gil. We have since updated our website to show this. We apologise for the inconvenience. We go to great efforts to travel responsibly in every country we operate in. We only stay in locally owned hotels, visit local restaurants and travel on public transport, reducing our impact on the environment considerably. However, we are always looking at ways to do more and welcome any suggestions. Please feel free to email us as this will allow us to constantly improve our tours for future travelers.
