Testimonial

"My husband and I did the Tequendama Cloud Forest hike and it was amazing. Andres was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. It felt like we had been friends with him for years. Very easy to talk to and is in touch and has a deep respect for nature and the forest. He understands and can explain the different plants, trees, wildlife and their connection to each other. I would describe the hike as beginner to intermediate level. Not easy but not too hard. About 5 hours hiking each day. The lodge was beautiful and comfortable. We had a great time." - Aubree
