I promised to provide feedback about the trip to Colombia that you arranged for us so here goes:
This was a superb holiday with everything going perfectly to plan. Arrangements were delivered as promised and we had a fantastic time. Every one of our drivers and guides was professional, generous with their time and interesting: we enjoyed their company very much. I was pleased that my Spanish was comfortably up to the conversations with non-English speakers:-)
This kind of holiday is always a balance between trying to do everything and having enough time to see the places visited in depth. For us, the balance was just right although we could have very happily spent more time in every location. The smoothness of the transfers meant that we did the maximum possible without feeling that we were constantly on the move. I would hazard a guess that for many people the trip might have been slightly too fast-paced but we knew what we wanted and what to expect. We were also very happy with our choice (with your help) of whether we needed a guide, just a driver or went off on our own.
So, Chris, thanks to you and Jimmy for putting together this magnificent trip – and indeed for recommending Colombia very firmly. We both found it the most special place we have visited in Latin America and the low level of tourism (hurrah!) brought back happy memories of what travel was like when we were first visiting places like Mexico and Guatamala 25 years ago. If you need any more specific feedback on any aspects of the trip, I would be happy to provide.
I’m sure we’ll be back in touch in the coming years next time we head to this part of the globe.
