Customer Feedback

A family from India traveling through Colombia in one of our cars

Everything was just perfect, we had a great time. The kids loved it, we loved each day of the trip, thank you so much for all the help

On and off-road through a green desert

It was by far the nicest and most impressive travel that we have done with our kids (4 and 6 years old) – we started with our 4x4 vehicle from Bogota west to the Magdalena river and then south into the Tatacoa desert, continuing to the monolithic statues and UNESCO world heritage site in San Augustin before crossing the Andes to reach stunning colonial Popayan and lively Cali.

What to say - these five days and almost 1200 kms on Colombian roads and tracks were great fun. Exploring the area around Cali with a 4x4 is for sure a great way to make the most of your time in Colombia and to enjoy the variety of landscapes and vegetation. It also allows you to get off the beaten track and to have a unique adventure - definitely recommended!

Get the most out of your trip

Tourist guide recommendations, spending the night in just one place or the constant question of which means of transport best to get to the next place – forget the standard and make it easier for you: Thanks to our 4x4 vehicles, you can experience Colombia's nature up close and have your accommodation right with you.
