THE WORLD’S SECOND MOST BIODIVERSE COUNTRY IS WAITING FOR YOU

COLOMBIA PRIVATE TRIPS

 

We decided to offer private trips to Colombia because we were getting requests from prospective travelers to help them plan their trips. We published our own Best of Colombia guide, but it just wasn't enough. They wanted to travel “the El Camino way” but didn’t fit within the boundaries of our Small Group Trips. Some were traveling with children, while others had specific dates of travel that didn’t align with ours. Whatever the reason, we understood that Private Trips were needed to close the gap. 

While we are committed to the beauty of traveling with a group, at the end of the day our mission is to bring more people to the kind of destinations that maybe they wouldn’t have considered otherwise. By helping travelers find their way to Colombia, we can continue to strengthen the local economy and help dissolve negative stereotypes.


We are proud to share Colombia's rich culture with you by taking you to the kind of places that and instill a sense of wonder and awe. We have years of experience under our belts curating the best of the best under-the-radar experiences, all the while with a commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism. 

We’ve done the hard work for you: We’ve sifted through the clutter, we’ve tested the experiences, walked the streets and sampled the meals. All this so that we can say with the utmost confidence and sincerity: You are going to love this experience.

colombia PRIVATE ITINERARIES

 
 

Below is our selection of Colombia Private Trip set itineraries that you can book for any date of your choosing. Every itinerary has been designed by our Colombian-American founder, Katalina Mayorga, who passionately sources new experiences with her finger on the pulse of the emerging creative scene. Accommodations will be customized based on budget and interest, and all travelers will be provided with a hand selected list of restaurants, shopping and night-life recommendations direct from Katalina.

 

Please note that the experiences listed cannot be changed. We have worked really hard to curate what we think shows off the best of the cities that you’ll be visiting. This is also how we are able to maintain accessible costs for such a highly curated experience.


The Bottom Line: We make it easy for you to have an unforgettable trip without having to spend countless hours sifting through TripAdvisor and the like. You can expect the same calibur of experiences and attention to detail that we have become known for in our classic, Small Group Trips.
