A really enjoyable experience. We enjoyed every day & found the mix of cities, mountains & beach just about right. Despite the concerns of our family regarding supposed dangers in Colombia, we felt perfectly safe and had only good experiences in our contacts with local people. Thanks mainly to our guides advice.

It was wonderful, I had the BEST time. Maria is an excellent and caring CEO. Loved the small towns especially and the uniquely cultural hotels we stayed in. The caring and organization of the trip was noted and very appreciated. I am now an ambassador of Columbia as most folks have a very negative concept of this country which is very outdated. I tell them about today's Columbia. :)

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
