This website, PaisaTours.com,
does not offer any travel related services - the website's purpose is
to advise independent travellers where to go and how to go there. It is
relatively easy to book individual flights and hotels yourself by
dealing directly with the airline or hotel you choose. However, if you
don't speak Spanish, you may well find it simpler to deal with a travel
agency / tour operator. Here's some personal recommendations of mine.
Recommended tour operators are
personal recommendations of mine. I am familiar with all of them,
either because I have worked for them, worked with them or am very
familiar with their brand name.
Latin America - past employers of mine who arrange both
tailormade and group tours to Colombia. Very good for booking domestic
flights and airpasses too. Fully bonded tour operator - the UK's best
Latin America specialist.
Guias - a long established Colombian tour operator based in
Bogota. They are ...ahem... Journey Latin America's
supplier. An upmarket and very reliable operator, Eco Guias can book
tailormade or group tours all over Colombia.
Worldwide - UK based tailormade holiday experts with a very
knowledgeable Colombia department. Fully bonded tour operator. Ask for Tom....
Travel - an experienced operator offering exciting tailormade
tours all over Colombia.
57 - British managed inbound tour operator specializing in
mid to high end tailormade tours all over Colombia. They are ...ahem...
Audley Travel's supplier.
- are Colombia's big tour operator with branches all over the country.
You'll often see offices at the major international airports. Reliable,
though maybe lacking the personal touch as they're so big. This travel
agency also offers outbound trips for Colombians travelling abroad, and
their website seems to only be in Spanish.
