"I highly recommend working with this company for your next travels to Colombia. Our 5 day trip was well planned and coordinated for a co-ed group of 10. The itinerary was an great mix of what we wanted- culture, food, local fun, shopping & boat days (a must)! We absolutely loved Cartagena and will be back!"
Tatiana, USA
Monish B., USA
"Wow, there is literally no other way to travel to Colombia unless you are doing it with the services of Connect Colombia! From the moment my party of 10 arrived in Medellin, we were greeted by our driver in an air conditioned bus and the fun ensued from that moment onward. The entire itinerary was laid out for us and we got a good mix of culture, tourism, and nightlife. Planning the trip ahead of time was so seamless as the only thing I had to do was book my flight and Connect Colombia took care of the rest, even securing one of the nicest accommodations in the city for my group. It's been a few weeks since our Medellin trip and all of us are still talking about how great the trip was. 5 stars!!!!!"
Monish B., USA
Christian, USA
"Just got back from Cartagena and it was one of the best trips of my life! The villa we had was absolutely gorgeous (and huge!) and was much cheaper than the surrounding hotels/airbnbs I found online. On top of that we had an amazing itenarary filled with boat rides, private islands and live musicians! The entire trip went without a hiccup I highly recommend this company!"
