The Guest Book

This is what our travelers are saying about their experiences with Connect Colombia
"Cartagena was beyond amazing and I know in part because it was meticulously planned by @connectcolombia. The house, the restaurants, the boat rides, the food (obsessed with arepa de huevo and jugo de maracuyá) the vallenato band brought to the house (I danced like never before) and the dedication from Linda, made our trip truly unforgettable. I fell in love with Colombia and will be using this company to explore more. Thank you @connectcolombia for your outstanding services. Medellin, Cali and Bogota, I am coming for you!"

"Connect Colombia made my life so much easier when I had to plan a trip for 12 to Cartagena. Every single detail was taken care for us, from places to visit to recommendations of where to eat. The whole time we felt relaxed, safe and taken care of--all while having the time of our lives. The house where we stayed was fantastic as well as the staff there who accommodated us with anything we needed. I look forward to returning next year to another city because I know it will be another moment in my life!"

"Just returned from a friends 30th birthday trip planned by connect colombia and I don't have enough nice things to say. Perfectly planned and executed. Highly recommended and will be using again in the near future!"
Alba, 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!!!!!"
