An interesting holiday in Colombia to a developing country well worth visiting at the moment

We traveled round one of the two "usual" tours of Colombia and had excellent guides and tours of the main sites with a lot of interesting talks to locals about the state of the Country. Optimism is high in some points but very low in others, as is probably to be expected. An attractive and varied country with some good hotels and some excellent food although pizza does seem to be the prevalent food everywhere.

Journey Latin America gave us various ideas and we gave them our requirements and we thought they had given us what we asked for and chosen well. All their arrangements went as planned with no hitches even with the landslides on the road from Bogota and Villa de Leyva, with alternative arrangements made to use the telecabine across the canyon and meeting us at either end. Their drivers drivers and guides were excellent.

Colombia a very varied country

A holiday seeing different aspects of the country from the capital to the coast with walks among wax palms, underground salt cathedrals, coffee country. Amazing Medellin with beautiful Christmas lights and a feeling of safety. Friendly people throughout and so many unexpected sights including a fossil museum and so much more with a wonderful tour leader who made sure all the group had their individual needs met.

Journey Latin America will try to guide customers to only book holidays suitable for their needs. The itineraries are carefully selected to include a variety of sights with enough time to fully enjoy them. Any individual requests are greed if at all possible and their knowledge of the destinations is superb

Honeymoon of a lifetime

We had an amazing holiday in Colombia, which surpassed our expectations. We had the perfect mix of sight seeing, hiking, eating and relaxing. What was great, is that all our requirements were listened to and the holiday we had, matched those. We had planned activities and also time to do our own thing in each place.

We booked the holiday via Kuoni, with the holiday itself, provided by Journey Latin America. they provided us with the holiday we asked for, at a price which was extremely competitive. It was almost the same price to have a tailor-made holiday, as a group tour to Colombia, which would've meant us compromising on our holiday and what we would have done

Visited Bogota and around, Cartagena, Medillin and the coffee country of Colombia. Very well planned trip with excellent connections, lovely accomodation, very good, professional and helpful local guides. Really loved the country, helped a lot by the arrangements working so well.

Journey Latin -'America came up with the perfect itinerary, very much personalised for us. At a late stage we made some changes which they coped with extremely efficiently and flexibly. Fantastic trip. I will book with them again.

Amazing diversity and charms of Latin America's hotest new destination

The most diverse scenery and cultural experience we have had in our 6 + tours of Latin American countries. Of all the places we have been, I am more tempted to return to Colombia for more exciting travel than any other (so far!). The change from Salento to Medellin to Cartagena is an unforgettable roller-coaster ride!

Absolutely everything went according to plan and itinerary. I wouldn't change anything (but one hotel; our particular whimsy). Would use them again.
