Colombia - Medellin to Bogota
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Colombia - Medellin to Bogota cycling holidays...
Aidan Prior, London, England, UK
An amazing trip; quite tough with a lot of climbing but the rewards are many.
The views, the birds and butterflies and the exotic fruits and plants. The small towns along the route are bustling with life and activity and a delicious coffee is never far away. The opportunity to explore two fascinating cities at the beginning and end of the trip in Medellin and Bogota is a real bonus. (We tried running in Bogota and forgot that it is at 2,640m! - Mui Durita.)
Andrew Pitts, Manchester, England, UK
Redspokes offers the opportunity to explore different countries and cultures well off the regular tourist trail. This tour included a mixture of uphill, off road, challenging cycling and stunning down hill swoops, through fantastic wild and beautiful places. You come back slimmer and fitter in body and mind. This is my 4th redspokes tour and I return home feeling more positive and energised.
Already planning my next one to escape the UK winter.
Minaxi Patel, London, United Kingdom
Another trip with redspokes, where I couldn't fault the organisation, care and attention to detail. The cycling was slightly tougher that the other trips I have been on but the hills are what make this part of Columbia so beautiful. There was plenty of time to explore the towns we stayed in and the excursions arranged by the guides added to the cultural experience.
Javier and his team were fabulous at looking after the group.
Nigel Fielden, Cheshire, England, United Kingdom
Definitely the best way to see and get a feel for Colombia. Wonderful cycling through a beautiful part of the country. Support crew, as usual, were spot on - helpful, smiling and patient.
Nigel Moore, Amersham, England, United Kingdom
We were so very well looked after and enjoyed a wonderful insight into a fabulous country. Everyone was so welcoming and made it a super trip!
Also many thanks to your office staff for the pre-holiday admin to ensure we got there suitably prepared – this part also worked well.
Bruce Irving, Norwich, United Kingdom
Colombia turned out to be much better than expected. The Colombians are honest and a delight. Happy dance music coming out of all the houses along the way. Lots of exotic fruit made the cycling a party!
Graeme Guilford, Matamata, New Zealand
In Colombia we got to experience City's small towns and rural environments.
Meeting local people and getting to know the real Colombia. We had a really good group and Adrian and Javier did a great job.
This is my 6th trip with redspokes and they have all been awesome experiences. Definitely will be doing some more.
Manisha and Guido Szamocki, Bristol, United Kingdom
Colombia deserves to be known for it's good side, the magnificent landscape, the really friendly, polite and gracious people we met everywhere we went. Don't let the negative cover about drugs and violence put you off. Riding in a group with redspokes is very safe and a great way to see the countryside. Adrian and Javier took really good care of us all, with Adrian whipping out delicious fresh fruit and guava jelly bars just as everyone was starting to flag going up the interminable hills! The only thing about riding in Colombia is that there's no avoiding hills! Even the flat bits seem to be at least undulating! You just have to grit your teeth and face up to them! We had a great group of riders who were all about the same level, and we had a lot of laughs!
Donal Burke, New York, United States
All guides were very helpful and make the trip fun. The scenery is incredible and the hills very challenging. As the trip covered some beautiful small towns as well as the two largest cities I felt that we got to see a good cross section of Colombia.
I would love for others to discover the magic of Colombia
Marius Krikstopaitis, Vilnius, Lithuania.
Amazing tour with beautiful views, tasty food and great guides, very much recommended.
