"Our Colombia tour was excellent. From Bogota to Cartagena we were enthralled by the luscious green countryside and sky scraping mountains. The history of the country was covered in detail from the period of colonization to the present. Our tour leader and local guides were very knowledgeable about all aspects of their society, history, economy, government and so on. All of them spoke English well and had great personalities. Highly recommended."

"Our tour guides were well informed, personable and truly delightful. We had a friendly group and good accommodations. Loved the coffee tour and tasting, but especially memorable was our afternoon in Comune 13 and Getsamane. The artwork was fabulous! Tour guide in Comune 13 was a bit "preachy" and repetitive. All in all- a fabulous trip- Go to Colombia!"

"The tour guides in Colombia were excellent. I liked that the big cities of Bogota and Medellin alternated with the beautiful countryside of the Coffee Triangle and the beach at Cartagena."

"Forget the stories of drug cartels! Colombia is modern, beautiful and coffeelicious!! From Bogotá to Medellin to Cartagena, Colombia is a modern 21st century country with warm and engaging people, beautiful vistas and amazing modern buildings with surprising and amazing architecture. The coffee triangle is lush, tropical and aromatic. This is my 19th SmarTours trip and I highly recommend this tour. Accommodations are first rate and the meals were sumptuous. Kudos to our guide Elsa for her expertise and engaging manner."

"Just returned from this trip in June 2016. It was an amazing tour and it really portrayed the country as it truly is. The people were great and let me say the service at the hotels and everywhere was awesome. The accommodations were excellent. The scenery of the country was unbelievable. Kudos to our Tour Director, Leon as well as the local guides Carlitos (Coffee Triangle/Medellin) and Eusevio (Cartagena) for making this trip so much fun. They are friendly, fun, knowledgeable and their English was great. Our drivers were very experienced and always concerned about safety first which was very good. Our group was very small but we had a great time. Thank you to all for the wonderful vacation. I recommend this trip highly."

"This May we returned from a wonderful and interesting trip to Colombia where we visited Bogota, Coffee Triangle, Medellin, and Cartagena. We felt safe and enjoyed the diversified landscapes, history, friendly people, delicious food, and very knowledgeable and caring guides. Leon and Alejandro went out of their way to share and teach us about their culture. We visited flower, fruit and vegetable markets, sugar cane factories, coffee plantations, in which we had many tastings and watched local people working. The coffee was extremely good. The underground salt cathedral was amazing along with the Emerald, Botero and Gold museums. There were many quaint colorful villages to meander thru witnessing rural life in and around the town squares. The hotels were all high end with gr8 breakfasts. The cities were exciting and easy to get around. Leon would always take or direct us to a delicious authentic Colombian restaurant for lunch and dinner. The sea in Cartagena was delightful to swim in. We cannot thank Leon and Alejandro for making our experience so special, comfortable, informative, and fun. We are well seasoned travelers and feel Colombia is a must visit."

"As my husband and I prepared for our travel to Colombia, our friends and family asked "Why Colombia", aren't you afraid of being kidnapped? Or,"I've heard they drug people and sell the parts on e-bay". What my husband and I experienced in Colombia was far from either of these! Colombia is a proud welcoming country, excited to share their amazing history and culture. It is a country working extremely hard to overcome and endure their past and provide a good future for their people. Our tour guide "Leon Pardo", was excellent, as was his counter part "Carlito", in the coffee region. Colombia was an amazing place to travel and enjoy and just as they claim, the hardest part was never wanting to leave!"

"My wife Jackie and I just finished a truely exceptional trip to Colombia. We visited Bogota, the Coffee Triangle, Medellin, Cartagena and many points in between. Everything about Colombia was new to us and the trip exceeded our expectations. Our tour director Leon Pardo was close to perfect, as was the driver (Julian)-local guide (Omar) combination in the Coffee Triangle and Medellin. The hotels were great. The scenery was quite varied and uniformly beautiful.The city of Cartagena was a wonderful place to end this trip."

"We truly enjoyed this tour...our tour guide David was excellent as were the local guides. I would make a few changes to the itinerary..... one more day is needed in Bogata and Medillin. You could cut one day off the coffee triangle. Add one day to the entire trip....leave on a Friday instead of Sat. Finally, try to switch airlines to Avianca which have direct flights from Medillin to Cartegena. THe hotels were fine ..... Overall we loved the tour and will continue to choose SMARTOURS for future travel. This was our 4th tour on smartours!! THANK YOU.....Ellen and Henry Cohen"
