Great way to see the Amazon!
We are a family of four (two adults and two children ages 12 and 10) and had a fantastic time touring the Amazon region with Uncover Colombia. They were able to create a tour that worked well with our schedule and interests. Sergio was a wonderful tour guide and knew so much about the local area and wildlife. Everything was well coordinated - transportation, lodging, etc. He was great with the kids and they learned so much on this trip.
Only note of caution might be that the food options are somewhat limited. Not unexpected in the Amazon or on a guided tour but if you are traveling with kids who may be more selective eaters, be prepared for this. Our selective eater managed just fine but just something to be prepared for.
Trips exploring around Colombia
Uncover Colombia organised 3 trips for us while we visited our son in Bogota. The first 12 days took us to Medellin with an interesting introduction to the city and a great tour to Guatape. The guide then drove us all the way down to the coffee region via Salamina, an interesting old colonial town set in beautiful countryside. A long journey but interesting to see much of the country rather than flying over it. The coffee region was just beautiful, the Cocora Valley, Salento and of course the coffee plantations on incredibly steep slopes. 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, which was all very reassuring
Great tour company! Reliable, exactly where they said they would be at the time, everything as advertised. They were very accommodating of special requests, and changed the tour slightly so our toddler would have a better experience. The hotel was good, the guide was incredibly good with our young daughter, and we had a relaxing, enjoyable time. I would recommend them highly.
Uncover Colombia excellent trip
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. Birding was a big focus of the trip but we also visited many other attractions including the Gold museum, the Botero Museum and the Salt Cathedral. Uncover Colombia set up all internal flights, hotels, birding guides, sight seeing excursions and guides, drivers for all activities including airport pickups and drop-offs. And everything went off without a hitch. We stayed at some lovely boutique hotels. Colombia is a great place to visit and Uncover Colombia makes it easy!
Mangroves Cartagena Fishing Trip
This was fabulous. The bus showed up at the beach house right on time, Our interpreter, Jeimmy Gomez was great and funny and really fit in with our group. She waisted no time at giving those of us who deserved a good ribbing, a good ribbing. It took us no time to fall in love with her. Juan, who was the fisherman in my boat also made us feel like part of the family. I guess laughter has no language barriers. We enjoyed the great lunch provided and it really capped off a great morning. BTW, none of us could make a living fishing if we had to throw that net but it sure was fun trying. We all had a good laugh including Jeimmy and Juan.

For the third year in a row, we have used the very knowledgeable and friendly professionals at Undercover Colombia to plan our trip to that very beautiful country. We toured in and around Bogota our first trip and for the last 2 years we have been going to Cartagena. The hotel reservations, the transfers, and the tours are always done in a flawless manner. The tour guides that they employ are always friendly ad enthusiastic: and it does not matter whether you are visiting a coffee plantation or Old Town Cartagena. We would never use any other agency when travelling in Colombia. We are very satisfied clients who keep coming back because o the excellent service.
