Tremendous experience, but it took longer than estimated. This was partially due to stopping to take in the beautiful scenery and take pictures and partially due to the age of the older participants (ourselves!). The guide (Nick) was great - he didn't pressure anyone to pick up the pace. It was truly at a pace you are comfortable with. Due to the amount of time it took to complete the hike, lunch was delayed. This wasn't a big issue, The food seemed to have been prepared for our originally estimated arrival time and "kept warm" until we arrived. If there was a negative to the tour - this was it.

Beautiful hike with a view of the Bogota mountainside and waterfalls were breathtaking. Breakfast and lunch were amazing. Julie, our tour guide, was incredible. This was my first visit to Colombia and this hike reveals the the beauty of Bogota. Definitely worth recommending!

Nick was an amazing guide, really attentive and knowledgable. The waterfalls were breathtaking, likewise were the views through out the hike. I would really recommend taking this tour.

Beautiful scenery and experience! Overall a very nice tour and Youlie was a great tour guide eager to explain everything. Would highly recommend!

Julie was a great guide. She is knowledgeable and friendly. The trek itself is strenuous so wear good shoes and be prepared for wet conditions!
