KimKim took the worry out of planning our trip to Colombia. Our local specialist, Wendy, was always accessible and did a wonderful job coordinating all of our city-to-city flights, ground transportation, and excursions (including local English speaking guides at each destination). My family visited Bogota for two days (visiting Museo del Oro, Museo Botero, Cerro de Monserrate, Catedral de Sal, and Andres Carne de Res Chia), Eje Cafetero for 3 days (visiting Cafe La Morelia coffee farm, Valle... read more

KimKim took the worry out of planning our trip to Colombia. Our local specialist, Wendy, was always accessible and did a wonderful job coordinating all of our city-to-city flights, ground transportation, and excursions (including local English speaking guides at each destination). My family visited Bogota for two days (visiting Museo del Oro, Museo Botero, Cerro de Monserrate, Catedral de Sal, and Andres Carne de Res Chia), Eje Cafetero for 3 days (visiting Cafe La Morelia coffee farm, Valle de Cocora horseback riding and hiking, Finlandia, Salento, and Panaca) and finally, Cartagena for 2 days (visiting Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, Convent of Santa Cruz de la Popa, Getsemani, the walled city, Baru & Isla Rosario). It was a FABULOUS trip celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary -- and we will never forget it!

Our only two complaints were (1.) visiting the "Encanto House" in Finlandia --which was not a house at all & was very under-whelming!) and (2.) Our trip to Baru and The Rosario Islands which took far too long to get to (over 5 hours). We let our specialist, Wendy, know about these two complaints and she was very apologetic & did her best to rectify the problems.

We will definitely use KimKim again inthe future and recommend to family & friends!

Hotel Reviews
AC Hotel by Marriott Bogota Zona T
Bogotá

Hotel was fantastic; however, it was in an extremely congested area (took almost an hour to get a few blocks in the car!)

Ecohotel Monte Tierra

Our 1st time "glamping" -- what a spectacular location/view. The hotel had a very friendly dog, Rocky, which we ALL loved. Leave yourself some extra time to go/come - as the road leading to the hotel is not finished!
