          Transporte en Colombia
          If you travel to Colombia and take public transportation or Uber, be careful to close the doors abruptly, this is taken as impoliteness and that you are rude.

          Fantastic trip!
          We spent a week in Colombia and our four days in Medellin with tour guide Sebastian Valencia Serna was the best part of our trip! Not only did we see the coolest parts of the city - Comuna 13 was definitely a highlight, but we got so many incredible insights from Seb everywhere we went! We leaned so much about beautiful Medellin and had so many laughs too! We can’t wait to go back and explore more. Thank you Colombia Travel Operator (and Seb)! ❣️

          Great company and team!
          Great service! The company was able to accommodate my party of 11 and several changes that needed to be made. They were even able to get a last minute car for a early departure.

          Excellent Tours
          We enjoyed 2 amazing tours of Medellin City and Communa 13 with Colombia Travel Operator. Our guide, Julian, was great. He was punctual, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and helpful. Julian ensured we were comfortable, safe, hydrated, and enjoying each experience. Our driver, Victor, was the best driver we had during our time in Colombia. And Ari, the young guide who showed us around her home community, Communa 13, was amazing - willing to share the history and her experiences of this fascinating community while answering all of our questions with insider knowledge. All the staff at Colombia Travel Operator were great and ensured we had memorable experiences in an amazing city. Highly recommended during your visit to Colombia.

          Great guide and see so many parts of the city!
          The name of our tour was Corner to Corner, and it is spot on. You go from one end of the city to another all in one day. Gives you the opportunity to take trains, buses, escalators, and cable cars. Got a taste for all Comuna 13 has to offer and experience the tranquility of Arvi. The guide, Sebastian was very good, especially with an overly large group (20). This excursion should be no more than 10 people per tour guide, probably better with 6-7.

          Great day in Medellín!
          I did the Corner to Corner tour with Sebastián last Sunday. It came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint! It’s clear Sebastián cares deeply about his city and the people of Colombia. I especially appreciated the multiple perspectives shared throughout the day, the history, the challenges, and the beautiful stories of transformation. I learned so much. It can’t be easy taking 20 people on a tour for a full day on buses, trains, and cable cars! Very impressive. Much appreciation. Had a great time! Awesome way to explore the city!

          Phenomenal guide and company!
          Sergio was our guide on the Social Transformation Tour, co-led by in Comuna Trece. Both were incredible and knowledgeable guides. We enjoyed their company very much - so much so that we booked a private tour of Guatapé. Sergio’s knowledge and expertise is huge and we benefited! We will definitely book with this company again!

          Excellent travel agent for a great country to visit.
          This review is not only for the Christmas Lights in Medellin but for our entire experience in Colombia. Our (three senior citizen couples from Las Vegas) nine-day trip to Cartagena and Medellin was nicely planned by Laura and Julio, with our frequent input. It was perfectly executed by their local guides, Sandra in Cartegana and Joseph in Medellin. Joseph is knowledgeable, fun, and flexible. He was a great company for all of us. We visited all the popular attractions in both the cities and found the country to be colorful, and interesting, and the people to be nice.

          Excellent Tour Experience
          My wife and I requested a one (1) week tour that covers Bogotá, Medellin, Cartagena and Santa Marta. They provided us with a detailed plan with the types of tours in each city which included the hotels and some meals. We had a excellent experience in all cities. The agency provided us with excellent personnel and contacted us in a daily basis to verify our experiences. We are planning to return to Colombia and definitely we will use again Colombia Travel Operator.

          Growing up in Medellin until the age of 10 and coming back to be part of this tour was an incredible experience.. and the way it was set up and the story it told was unforgettable. This tour is unique since it gives you the perspective of how the city has fought to change and become what it is today. Also our guide was a phenomenal young man whom I can tell has passion for what he does and his city. 100000% recommend

          4 days in Medellin
          Our family of 5 spent 4 days with Colombia travel in Medellin and surroundings. Julio provided exceptional service- professional and personable; he customized the tours to our needs. Sebastien was also exceptional as our guide for the full day city tour, coffee tour, Guatape and Silletero tour. He is knowledgable and proud of the country's history and culture ; speaks several languages and was very professional and fun to be with. Transportation, drivers and local guides were all very courteous and helpful. We highly recommend Julio and his team for exploring Colombia. We look forward to more tours with them

          Best Tour of Bogota
          Carlos is an excellent guide - he knows so much about history, government, politics, nature, and recommendations for local snacks like empanadas, fruit juices, and coffees. His English is amazing, and they pick you up from your hotel! Carlos gave a great explanation of the churches near Monserrate and also the sculptures and the plants. His knowledge of the gold museum was exceptional, too. He did a great job managing the tour for our group of 13 family members! You will enjoy this tour and learn a lot!

        Who would think to put a Cathedral in a salt mine. It traces the 14 steps of Christ plus a beautiful chapel.
