What people are saying about Hiking | Colombia



Me and my girlfriend took 4 day ascent to Nevado de Tolima. Our guide- Alex Torres was very friendly, helpful and responsible. I can highly recommend him as guarantee of safe and enjoyable hiking.



We did the Nevado Santa Isabel trip in Los Nevados (not listed specifically on exploreshare, but we asked if we could do it). It was really spectacular and the service was great.


Trip was perfect. Amazing landscape I've never seen before in my life and great adventure. Alex is a perfect guide you want to have in such trip. He knows region very well. Alex is attentive to details and adjust route and speed to your conditions. If I go to mountains in Colombia again, it would be with Alex. Thanks for such amazing trip.



Our tour was great and Alex is an awesome, well prepared and experienced guide. He told us a lot of interesting information not just about national park and its flora but also about Colombia culture, history and etc. My wife and I can definitely recommend him and the tour itself.



The trip was great and Alex did a fantastic job. Everything worked out fine and we had a great adventure!
