THANK YOU TO MICHAEL GOLD who was especially attentive to me and my trip mate as we planned our trip to Colombia. He booked a fabulous week for us.

THANK YOU TO MICHAEL GOLD who was especially attentive to me and my trip mate as we planned our trip to Colombia. He booked a fabulous week for us.

While in Medellin: The hotel, the experiences, and the guides were perfect in every way. The hotel was basic but got the job done. BH El Poblado: friendly staff, great beds, hot water, terrific breakfast and views.
A BIG SHOUTOUT TO OUR GUIDE FROYLAN GARCES and DRIVER MARTIN CHALARCA as they were both quite knowledgeable in all areas of history, current events and where to get a great cup of coffee. They focused on our safety and comfort and really represented the heart and soul of Medellin.

While in Cartagena: The first hotel we stayed in was not a place that should be booked for future guests. Upon letting Michael Gold know about this he and his team immediately jumped to our aide. The sign of a great tour company is their availability to their guests and Michael and his team at Chaska took excellent care to make sure we were put somewhere else - Casa Lola. Terrific!
