explore colombia and positively impact local communities
Our unique and sustainable Colombia private tours give you the chance to immerse yourself into Colombian culture, connect with locals and positively contribute to their growth. Sustainable and community-based tourism is at the heart of Uncover Colombia. We believe travelling is one of the best ways to enhance personal growth and positively impact places.
As travellers, we love discovering new places and experiences. As a Colombian tour operator, we want you to experience the real Colombia and have a memorable adventure. We understand the diversity of each Colombian region and know the best hidden gems to visit. We work with local communities to create unforgettable experiences to make sure you experience everything Colombia has to offer.
what to expect during a colombia tour with us?
We believe the best way to experience Colombia is by engaging with local communities. Where possible, all our tours include unique hands-on experiences with local farmers and indigenous communities. We will also visit neighbourhoods and areas that give you a closer perspective of life in Colombia.
As more Colombia areas are becoming safe for travel, we constantly work to develop tours in new regions and add places only locals know. We go off-the-beaten-path to venture into incredible locations that very few travellers have seen before.
Colombia’s tumultuous past becomes more distant with each passing year. During our tours, you will visit areas where you can see the remarkable transformation achieved during the last few decades. You will hear from the local tour guides and communities how their life was during that dark period and how it is now. .
As the second most biodiverse country in the world, Colombia offers incredible opportunities to hike across natural parks and see its exceptional fauna and flora. We have hiking, wildlife and birding tours for you to immerse in the most incredible natural landscapes. Still, even if you only wish to have a cultural exploration, you will spend a few hours visiting at least one natural destination, so you leave Colombia with a complete perspective of the country.
From the first moment you contact us, we will answer all your questions and design the itinerary as you want to do it. Once you are in Colombia, we give you all the support required and the flexibility to add some minor changes where possible. As our tours are private, you will go at your own pace.

uncover colombia really covers colombia
My wife and I had been interested in visiting Colombia largely because my father worked in Barranquilla in the early to mid-1960s and I had not been back since then. I found Uncover Colombia online and entered into email conversations with Nidia Penagos about designing a trip. The result was an exceptional experience...

Uncover Colombia is the best travel agency we have ever used, and we have traveled to many different countries and used many different agencies... The standout person was Nidia. She organized our trip to Colombia perfectly. We asked for different things to be done in our 11 days in Colombia. She included every place using aeroplanes and cars as modes of transportation.

great colombia private tour company
I can highly recommend Uncover Colombia. I used the company for a week-long solo trip to Colombia spanning three cities: Bogota, Medellin and Cartagena. They did a wonderful job for me, providing English-speaking guides in each of the cities and arranging transportation to various sites and internal flights from city to city...

exploring around colombia
Guides were excellent and spoke good English which helped as my Spanish is, shall we say, developing! The places for accommodation were also good, but ask if you would prefer smaller hotels as the company are very flexible. We had good communication with the local representative from Uncover Colombia while we were in the country, and very quick, helpful responses while planning from England.
– John, April 2018
My husband and I recently visited Colombia for 28 days. The whole trip was organized by Uncover Colombia and they did a great job. This was a customized trip for just the 2 of us. We visited Bogota, Salento, in the Coffee Region, Cartagena, Santa Marta, the El Dorado Reserve and Leticia in the Amazon...

great trip to colombia!
We went on a grand tour of Colombia, visiting all the places my daughter (who lives there) recommended over a couple of weeks...Our trip couldn't have been any better. We were treated like royalty from start to finish - excellent hotels, guides and great places to visit. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment. What a beautiful country!

exceptional colombia travel agent
My wife and I wanted to visit Colombia. We travel independently or with an agent who only deals with one country. From our first contact to a final meeting after our 3 week trip they performed brilliantly...Colombia exceeded our expectations and anyone wishing to go should choose to travel with Uncover Colombia.
