Rafting and hiking, Colombia - Apr 22 - Apr 23, 2017

Traveler: Hilary W. - Local specialist: Tara Davis

You guys provided a great itinerary, but I think it also would have been nice to know some other details beforehand. i.e., the walk down to rio verde is rigid and pretty long, wear good shoes. There are no showers or sinks at the camp site. Bring plenty of water, etc.

I put in the passport for that one person from our group was a vegetarian and there was no vegetarian dinner option. :(

For future groups, I would recommend providing a luggage requirement. We were told in the van on the way to the river that there would be limited space in the dry bags. It would have been nice to know ahead of time so we could have packed minimally instead of having to re-pack bags on the side of the road and leave things in the van.

Hilary,

Thank you so much for coming to Colombia and for the valuable feedback.

Hilary,

Thank you so much for coming to Colombia and for the valuable feedback. In the future, I'll make that I tell potential guests about how long the Verde hike is, and that they will need good walking shoes. I'll also let people know there are no showers / sinks at campsite + to bring plenty of water. I'll also let people know of a luggage requirement.

I'll also tell the local guides that explaining all of this to clients is also super helpful to guests. They normally provide guests with plenty of water, so I'll will make sure this ALWAYS happens on future trips!

I am so sorry Janese did not have a vegetarian dinner option. We will work better as a team to pay closer attention & make sure this does not happen to future guests.

Thank you again for coming to the beautiful country of Colombia.
