They could have done a better job with informing me about a pick up delay. Pick up was scheduled at 8:00 am yet they didn't show up until 30 minutes later. I tried calling them numerous times but they weren't responsive up to the last minute. Aside from that issue I enjoyed this tour a lot.

Great

Great and well organised trip. Loved every minute of it. Bianca who was hosting me was brilliant. I don't speak Spanish but I had Colombian girl in my house/room so she translated everything. The only negative thing I can say is that booking through this website cost me double the price than my Colombian friend paid from an agency by booking in the city for exactly the same conditions :-( Otherwise highly recommend trip and experience.
