Things turned out better than expected. Our guides were all fabulous, very knowledgeable and friendly. Laura is very sweet, we met in Bogota and took us to the Salt Mines which is impressing, among other things. Roberto in Cartagena was great, beautiful city. We had another guide that talked about Gabriel Garcia Marques who was great and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed very much our visit to Medellin with our guide Froi who was fabulous.

Laura is very sweet, we met in Bogota and took us to the Salt Mines which is impressing, among other things. Roberto in Cartagena was great, beautiful city. We had another guide that talked about Gabriel Garcia Marques who was great and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed very much our visit to Medellin with our guide Froi who was fabulous. We went to Peñol and Guatape which I personally loved the most. We also had a great experience in Comuna 13 seeing all the art, grafitis and music. The hotels selected were spectacular. The Drivers were all very nice and patient.
I used this company for the first time and will definetely use it again. They took excellent care of all the details.
My next trip will be Italy and hope it is as amasing as this one.

Dinner Reservation at Leo Cocina y Cava - Please confirm on your side
Bogotá

Here was the only dinner I did not enjoy. Super, and I mean SUPER expensive. It is an experience but I did not like hardly any of the entries. They even gave us ants as part of a dish. I asked for the pairing which I thought was wine pairing but they gave us all sorts of hard licor. I finished drunk and forgot to check if they had subtracted the amout we had to pay when we made the reservation. I would not recommend this restaurant.
