Jeannette – August 2016
What a fantastic country!
Such warm-hearted people; and what a varied and perfectly organized trip! We still can’t believe how much we saw and experienced in a mere three weeks. Every day was a new adventure, and we could fully enjoy it because everything was arranged to perfection. Small-scale hotels, each with its own charm, and more than adequate transportation. All the guides we had were authentic and involved in their own way. They took their time, and we often parted as friends by the end of the day.
Veronique – with extended family
The six of us (an active grandma and grandpa in their sixties, middle-aged parents, and two teenagers) had a fantastic trip through Colombia. Better Places’ local travel expert designed the trip completely according to our wishes, and came up with some great suggestions of his own. It was a travel experience of a lifetime, even more special than we hoped for! We stayed in some stunning places, from small-scale, authentic hotels, to beautiful ecolodges. The whole trip was very well organized; all 32 days went pretty much according to plan – no small feat! The nature is beautiful in Colombia; there is so much variety in climate – from desert, to the high Andes, to the green coffee-triangle along the Caribbean coast. All our tour guides were professional and enthusiastic.
Probably some of the most open and friendly people on earth; we enjoyed our stay in Colombia from beginning to end! (and would love to go back with Better Places!).
Caroline – with partner
We stayed in places that could only be reached by horse or boat. Fantastic ecolodges. All the hotels in the cities were in great locations. Good local guides and transport service that was consistently on time.
I would recommend Better Places to everyone!
We really enjoyed the diversity of the country (nature and culture) and the incredibly friendly people.
Hacienda Combia was fantastic because of the swimming pool with stunning views of the coffee plantation.
