First let me be honest. I rated a 4 because Olinto was speedy in answering all my questions about the Jagular Footprint hiking trail. I could not make the hike due to some changes in my schedule with my Colombian friend who lives there. When I contacted Olinto he said that I did not complete my age on the form. He texted me about the age cut off at 70 yrs old. I was disappointed that your company assumed that anyone older than 70 couldn't qualify for the hike.. I am 72, traveled the world, climbed up to 15,000 feet above sea level in Tibet... The highest country in the world. Zipped line in Costa Rica and so on. Please don't put a finish sign on age. There are many people like me who are healthy, vibrant, energetic living life to the fullest! Just saying! Embrace people at any age and stop thinking limitations on people because of your beliefs as to what seniors can be and do at certain age! Professor E. Shaifer MSN, Ed, RN Mich USA

If you are crunched for time, and want to see everything the Sierra Nevada mountain range has to offer, literally from the sea all the way up into the mountains, then you can't pass up this 2 day tour! My sister and I were accompanied by wonderful tour guides, Olinto and Marina on a fun-filled journey through the Sierra Nevada. We covered so much ground and by the end, felt like we had seen it all and hadn't missed out on anything. On day one we took motor bikes to crystal blue and turquoise waters in Tayrona National Park, enjoyed the beach, had lunch, took a boat ride, and went snorkeling and saw a garden of fish and coral. The views of the highest coastal mountains in the world was absolutely breathtaking. We then saw some waterfalls (although it rained a bit, it was still peaceful and beautiful) and headed to Sweet Harmony for the night, a cute and tranquil boutique in the middle of of the mountains. On Day 2 we took a tour of an organic coffee and cacao farm and learned so many interesting things about how those two crops are grown and harvested. There were even some fun surprises afterwards and we got to sample the coffee and cacao. The drive is long, but it was well worth the trip. The time went by fast because you got to see more of Colombia outside your window on the drive. Olinto and Marina made this tour extra special. They are so kind, were extremely accommodating, and by the end felt more like friends than our tour guides. I HIGHLY recommend this tour.

We had a great day with Olinto and Rodrigo on this excursion. His pre-departure email prepared us for the gear we needed, and he provided us with much appreciated poles for water crossings. Oli provided us with breakfast from his favorite arepa stand, and then drove us in his comfortable LandCruiser to the Montes de Maria for our hike. Olí is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, and the local guide, Rodrigo, can spot wildlife like a true expert. We saw monkeys, several birds, mushrooms, and he literally grabbed a small alligator out of a poll adjacent to the stream to show us. The sounds of the forest are amazing, and we loved seeing the petroglyphs which included the jaguar’s footprints. Rodrigo gave us fresh coconut water after the hike, which was so refreshing. Then, we had lunch in San Jacinto, and the musical performance by some members Los Gaiteros de San Jacinto. We learned about the origins of cumbia music which is popular throughout South America, and the performance was amazing too. This excursion is a great contrast to the sights and sounds of Cartagena. We loved our time in Cartagena, and we’re so glad we took this excursion.

Olinto was very knowledgeable and passionate about the forest, he taught us so much about the ecosystem and biodiversity as we hiked. We saw howler monkeys but also butterflies and amazing plants. Olinto took care to make sure the hike met our expectations and it was an amazing experience. Would highly highly recommend!

The hike itself was awesome and certainly the highlight was seeing all 3 types of Columbian monkeys. Our guides were amazing in not only leading us to the various animals we found but also taught us about the various plant and tree species! Rarely does something you’ve built up in your mind deliver the dream in you mind…this did and then some. If you are in good shape this is an absolute must do for any lover of nature
