The jungle trek is a challenging 3 day hike through the jungle, and one of the best treks I’ve done having done similar trips in other parts of South America and Europe.

Diana is the best guide I have hiked with and takes the time to explain the history of where we were and actually stopped to show us fruits, plants and animals. The families we stayed with each night were very accommodating and generous with their homes and cooked excellent meals.

Would highly recommend doing this hike with Diana.

My friend and I did the 3 day Jungle Trek with Diana as our guide. We really had no idea what to expect but it came highly recommended from the Expedition Colombia Group. My friend and I have hiked throughout Europe and South America and we would put this adventure up there with anything we have done. We didn't see a single tourist and it was a first hand look at how many of the farmers within Colombia live. Every family we stayed with was very welcoming and fun to be around. They have pride in their country and culture and they made our trip that much more enjoyable. I would recommend this trip for anyone looking for an active vacation away from the norm.

Lastly I'd like to say the Diana is awesome. She is so friendly and finds a way to make you feel comfortable right away. She was always teaching us about the ecosystems, fruits, history, culture and the language. I'd consider her a friend and I hope to see her again in the future.

We did 2 tours, both with the same guide. Our guide spoke wonderful English and did a great job telling us the history of the area, explaining the culture of Colombia, and answering questions.
Our first tour was to Guatapé to visit the town and climb to the top of the rock. The view from the top was spectacular and well worth the climb.
Our second excursion was the zip line canopy tour to the waterfall. WOW! The view of the waterfall from the half mile zip was amazing and then we still got to go on the hike. The waterfall was beautiful, and not just a little trickle - water was gushing over (expect to get wet from the spray). Keep in mind that hiking down to the waterfall meant that we had to hike back up, which was not hard from a footing standpoint but it was rather steep. This excursion was certainly a highlight of our stay in Colombia!
All in all, we had a fanstastic time and would definitely recommend both excursions. Our guide did a great job of pointing out interesting birds and plants and he even gave us a quick lesson in coffee as we passed by the bushes.

Our two adventures with Expedition Colombia were absolutely incredible and life changing experiences! Colombia is such an amazing place and this company really helped bring us culture to the people, culture, landscapes, and hidden gems of the region.

My wife and I selected two tours one white water rafting and the second a coffee plantation tour. Both were truly some of the most memorable experiences both my wife and I have ever had overseas (we've visited over 25 countries together).

First the whitewater rafting was exhilarating, educational, and safe. We rafted through a beautiful landscape and in-between rapids were educated us on the local eco-system, culture, and history of the area. Our day was long, but Julian and Fernando never ran out of energy. As we learned more about the owner and our guide, Julian, we found his appreciation for the environment refreshing. He is an authentic conservationist with a true passion for exploration, adventure, and nature. We highly recommend taking a trip with Expedition Colombia, it is a one of a kind experience that you not forget.

A couple days later we spent the day with Marcos and visited one of the most beautiful places on earth at a coffee plantation near San Fransisco, Colombia. The day was amazing and included some amazing food, horse back riding, site seeing, food, and culture. Marcos really made the trip. He was full of life and interesting. We hope to return to Colombia soon and have him take us to another area.

This company is worth every single penny. The experiences will never be forgotten and this company will help you fall in love with a country that is at the forefront of a blossoming tourism economy. Colombia is just amazing and I cannot say this enough. Enjoy!
