Colombia is one of Latin America's most distinctive and until recently misrepresented countries, and is possibly the continent's most beautiful. This fascinating private journey explores a few of Colombia's highlights. Included are the rolling hills of coffee country outside the energetic capital Bogotá, and the white coral Rosario Islands off the Caribbean coast, visited from the seductive port of Cartagena, with its history of pirates and modern day arts scene.
Colombia's distinct and heady mixture of Hispanic, colonial, indigenous and African influences has left its mark on the food, music, architecture and culture; its vibrancy, welcoming people and extraordinary natural and architectural features make this an unusual and captivating journey.

What our clients say

The whole trip was memorable - it's impossible to pick just one part. The Cuban people I met were friendly and warm - it was good to practice my Spanish, and their love of music and dance, and care for each other is an example for us all.LA, London
