My parents went on this...
PaulaAndrea_A, Apr 2023
My parents went on this tour and they loved it. Ceasar (the guide) was amazing, very knowledgeable, kind and professional. Everything was perfect. The guide and driver were very flexible and adapted to my parent's preferences. My mother enjoyed learning about Simon Bolivar and my father loved the little snacks (deditos de queso and jugo). Thanks so much Ceasar for looking after them and making this day so special.

Hola Paula, we're very happy to know your parents had a great time in Santa Marta. We'll make sure to tell Cesar they had an amazing experience during the tour, he'll be happy to know his flexibility and service were appreciated. Deditos de queso is one of our favorite snacks too, we're happy to know your father agrees. Thank you so much for choosing Gran Colombia Tours and for leaving your comment.
Wonderful guide

Jose was one of the best part of our vacation. He tailored everything to us helped me find ear drops at the pharmacy and even arrange a short boat ride in the best scuba diving area. He was so knowledgeable and quick to explain what we wanted to learn not just the standard tour guide info Thanks Jose!!!
