Best parts:
we had a great time and were pleased with all the arrangements. Tabea at the travel agency was very attentive and available. all of the guides were wonderful. we enjoyed our walking tour of Bogota with Giovanni who provided a great deal of insight into the history and politics of Colombia. We highly recommend Calanoa for anyone interested in the Amazon. Their commitment to the enviornment and the people in the surrounding villages made it a more genuine experience. We can't say enough about our guide Daniel who was such a delightful and knowledgeable individual. Our three days with Louise in Medellin and the surrounding countryside were also great. We particularly enjoyed the town of Guatape and were fortunate to be there mid week when there weren't many tourists. San Carlos was also worth visiting to get a feel for the countryside and it's recent history. We also liked the accomodations at La Cascada, the hosts Gabriella and Carlos were very welcomng. Language skills for all of the guides during the trip were fine.
Worst parts:
overall we were very happy with the trip. unfortunately we had some issues with the airlines (luggage diverted and flights cancelled and rescheduled). Our first hotel in Bogota the room was shabby with stained carpets and uncomfortable beds. They did however have a very nice restaurant off the lobby and the best breakfasts we had in Colombia. The location was also convenient. All the other accomodations met our expectations.
