Trip to colombia, Colombia - Jun 29 - Jul 9, 2019

Traveler: Lisa H. - Local specialist: Chio Tabakman

This was our first time using kimkim and I am very happy we did! We made a short fuse decision to tack on a family vacation to my business trip to Colombia, and Chio put together a great itinerary for us on very short notice (less than 2 weeks). Responses were prompt and we didn't have any issues during our 10 day vacation.

Highlights of the trip for us include the private graffiti tour in Bogota with Anna, Guatape day visit near Medellin and the cooking class in Cartagena. But all of it was great. We all really loved Bogota and Medellin the most. Cartagena old town was beautiful but a bit too hot and touristic for us.

My only complaint was that it was probably more than we needed to spend, but that's on me since I didn't allow time for back and forth planning/optimization. We had private transport to go almost everywhere, but it was easy enough to get around by secure taxi. Oh...and the Hotel Du Parc in Medellin had the smallest water heater ever and we could only get one shower at a time. All small things. Overall we had a fabulous family vacation in a country that I never had really thought about visiting. We all loved Colombia!

Hi Lisa, how are you?

I'm glad to hear you had a great time during your holidays here in Colombia and that you enjoy the cities. If was very nice to make your acquaintance and I'm truly happy that overall it as a great family experience.

About the transport, given that applications taxies aren't legal yet, we don't really recommend it. Also, thanks so much for your comments about the hotel in Medellin, I'll definitely have it in consideration and get the feedback to them as well!

I hope... read more
