About me

I fell in love with the wonderful people and beautiful country of Colombia in 2009. I was visiting my sister (a missionary in Bogotá) and was lucky enough to spend 3 full months traveling around and discovering places like the Amazon, the Coffee Zone, Caribbean, Pacific Coast and the fantastic culture of Bogotá. This was also when I had the great fortune to met and fall in love with Paula Parra; a beautiful Colombian woman from the Coffee Zone who I was to marry 15 months later. During this time I found it very difficult to find English speaking guides, so it was up to the people I was with to translate everything for me. If you've ever been in a situation like this you'd understand how tiring it can become for everyone involved, and how it can take some of the enjoyment out of the experience. But despite this my instant love affair with Colombia began and I felt compelled to share it with everyone I could. It was for this reason the first ideas of creating a travel agency offering English Speaking tours throughout Colombia was born. Now I have well over 100 tours available lead by bilingual local expert guides that can take you anywhere you would like to go throughout this amazing country. Whether your desire is to relax on a tropical beach, visit local indigenous villages, travel through the flawless beauty of the coffee zone, discover the deep culture of this amazingly diverse country, or all of the above. I'll help you create your dream tour and provide you with your trip of a lifetime, filling you with experiences, feelings, and memories that will last forever.
