This has been a brilliant trip, thank you for organising such a good vacation for us all. Fernando & Santi were really good & we have seen so many nice places. The house on the lake was really fabulous. So beautiful.

You have done a 5-star Job.

Thank you so much.

We travel extensively and without a doubt we would use Galavanta again, and would recommend to any of our friends. Their ability to understand our needs during the planning phase and deliver a highly personalized and meaningful experience on the ground was exceptional. Our expectations were exceeded on every level. The hosts were wonderful and everything was being thought about without the service ever feeling obtrusive or overly formal. A wonderful and very unique organization Galavanta could be a model for many of the high end tour operators that don’t always provide the level of local authenticity we experienced. Thank you again!



Travelling in Colombia with Galavanta has been an outstanding experience. The country provides a wide cultural and natural diversity, which makes each visit very unique and exotic. Thanks to Galavanta’s great planning and organization, I’ve always had the feeling to make the most of each location I’ve stayed in, while always feeling safe. On top of that, the different accommodations, the level of service and the culinary experiences have been some of the greatest in my life.

Galavanta could not have been more fantastic. They took care of everything and made our trip to Colombia an adventure of a lifetime. The hosts could not have been more helpful and great with the kids. Alexis and Christine were only a text or phone call away at all times and are also really lovely people.

A friend had given me Cristina’s contact particulars at Galavanta and suggested she could be helpful in planning a trip to Colombia that my husband and I were taking in April, 2015. “Helpful” is an overwhelming understatement! Cristina is absolutely delightful and helped out in so many ways with wonderful recommendations of places to stay, activities, restaurant suggestions and guides. We wanted to hike in the coffee region – Cristina and Alexis had been to the region and done their research to scout out good guides and good facilities. They made arrangements for us to be picked up at our hotel and taken to meet our guide. We had an outstanding day in the Valle de Corcora with our personal guide. He was knowledgeable of the area and of the many beautiful birds we saw. Cristina checked in with him throughout the day to make sure “everything was ok”. We were extremely well taken care of! Galavanta also organized an incredible day for us at a coffee plantation – again, with personal service. We didn’t have to plan – Galavanta took care of all the details, including making recommendations about what to serve us for lunch to ensure we got to try the best of the local food! We had one free day on arrival in Cartagena and emailed Cristina very last minute for suggestions of the nicest places to go to swim in the sea. Cristina gave us various options of how to spend our free day and we ended up renting a boat with a captain to take us around the islands. Spectacular! Cristina and Alexis are just as delightful in person as they are to deal with by email or on the phone. We loved their attention to detail, checking in with us and our hosts or guides and making our trip very easy for us – that’s the way every vacation should be! We look forward to returning to Colombia, exploring other parts of the country and working with Galavanta again!



Galavanta showed us corners of Colombia which were so unique and special we had to pinch ourselves. Their personal and efficient service was faultless. To go to Colombia without Galavanta’s input would be a travesty.

Galavanta provided us with an amazing opportunity to see the diverse climates, geography and people in Colombia. Thanks again for the wonderful holiday.

Having already visited Columbia on a previous visit, we had a good idea what was in store for us. Our expectations prior to arrival were very high, to our surprise they were exceeded! Thank You Galavanta.



For our trip to Colombia, my wife and I chose a Galavanta to discover the country in a personalized and intimate way. It was such a pleasure to not worry about planning and making reservations! We were taken care of as soon as we landed in Bogota by Galavanta’s team, including a very nice and passionate host that accompanied us during the whole trip. We visited Bogota, the coffee region, where we learned much about the Colombian culture and discovered some amazing landscapes while horseback riding. We finished our trip on the Caribbean coast, in Tayrona and Cartagena. I will never forget the superb beaches after we crossed a jungle full of colorful bird. All our wishes during the trip were taken into account and executed by the staff, and always with a smile. We recommend Galavanta!

Crisitna and Alexis should be very proud of the successful trip organized for our group of 10. I learned a tremendous amount about the history and culture. In addition, we experienced the culture and cuisine of Colombia through the food, dance and local experts. All in all, a 9.7 on 10 for me!!!



Many thanks to Alexis and Cristina for organizing this superb trip to Colombia! Their knowledge of the country (Cristina is Colombian) and brilliant advice allowed us to have an experience off the beaten track.

Highlights of our vacation: the visit of a coffee plantation owned by a very passionate Colombian family; the thoughtful birthday cake & candles as we were out in the Rosario islands on a sailboat; the stunning private property in the mountains of La Sierra Nevada. For our first time in Latin America, we really appreciated the kindness of the locals who welcomed us in their homes, their sense of joy (and dancing skills!), and the beautiful diversity of this country.

Seamless organization, remarkable hotel choices and top restaurants selection made this trip to Colombia unforgettable for my family. Our expectations were surpassed!
