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 I am now an ambassador of Columbia as most folks have a very negative concept of this country which is very outdated.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. :)

It was a great introduction to Colombia.

Operator G Adventures



Because it really made the most of your time in a country and having a local to show you around gave the best insight. I went on to do solo travel in Brazil and I really felt that I got so much more from my time in Colombia as I was on the tour. May 2015

Fantastic 12 days. Really felt like we saw the jewels of Colombia. So glad we had a Colombian guide too - having Carmen's mix of great organisation and wonderful local insight made it a truly unforgettable trip.

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.
Hotels (2 nts), camping (4 nts hammocks/rustic bunks).
Accommodation on the Lost City trek varies from day to day. In the campsites, the majority of the accommodation is in hammocks or bunks, with a mosquito net for cover. In the campsites, there are cold showers, flushing toilets and seating areas. Some of the campsites have lighting and power sockets, although these are not always guaranteed to be available. Because of the humidity, we do not suggest bringing a sleeping bag, as it would be too hot. Recommended is a sleeping sheet or a sleeping bag liner that can provide a level of comfort at higher temperatures.

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.
