Short Description

Experience the diversity of Colombia with this 17-day trip that covers some of our favorite areas in the region. Discover a Sunday in Bogota, where the streets are shut down to motorized vehicles and the whole city moves about on bike or foot enjoying various markets and arts, crafts, and fresh food stands, and, of course, the company of neighbors! Visit Valle del Cocora, known for its 60-meter tall wax palm trees, also the national tree of Colombia. Experience a coffee farm and local life in the heart of the coffee region. Spend two days relaxing in the fairy-tale walled city of Cartagena, studded with spectacular architecture, leafy plazas and ocean breezes.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Garrett Korn at Lost World Adventures is a top notch adventure planner. Every detail was taken care of and nothing left undone. Each guide was an expert in the field and provided amazing one on one daily interaction. THe food was over the top and they catered to our every need.

This is my second time traveling with Lost World and once again they did a great job. Somehow they manage to use reliable, helpful people who show up exactly on time and are a pleasure to be with. Our flight was delayed 14 hours and we landed at 1am unsure how we'd be getting to our lodging, but the driver and guide were there waiting for us. Working with Andrew planning the trip is easy as he listens to what you want and also offers his own suggestions. Our family trip entailed a quick stop in Buenos Aires then 6 days in Patagonia and we loved all of it. We had guides two days and the rest of the time we were on our own. I will definitely use them again.

Lost World Adventures helped me plan an amazing trip to the Peruvian Andes. Working with Andrew was a breeze, and our trip was perfect in every detail. Tour guides let us know each day what to expect the following day and when/where to meet them, and our luggage was transported for us when we went off on an overnight adventure. Highly recommended!
