Recommended Colombia Travel Agencies & Tour Operators

This website,, 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

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.

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.

Aviatur - 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.
