Colombia - Medellin to Bogota
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Colombia - Medellin to Bogota cycling holidays...
Roland Moodie, Horsmonden, England, UK
The tour was extremely well planned and the tour guides were excellent, going over and above what they needed to do and extremely professional in everything they did and always very helpful. My 13 year old son loved it and was treated extremely well by the tour guides and the other adults in the group. It was far more than a cycle ride as we went on a coffee tour and saw how sugar cane was processed. Can't recommend this trip enough if you want to see the Colombia that most tourists don't see.
Evelyn Mullins, London, England, UK
The team where fantastic, also there to help with all problems and queries. Please thanks them for making it an amazing trip for everyone.
Janet Rose, Colorado, USA
Colombia was everything I expected and more - great scenery and interesting culture. The roads were steep, long and challenging and the views outstanding. There is no such thing as "flat" in that area of the country.
Adrian brought the culture alive. He was always finding places where he could give us a taste (literally) of the local culture including sugar cane juice and fresh cakes of sugar cane to put warm on crackers, bonuela (deep-fried cheese balls), arepa (corn tortilla at every meal) sometimes with salsa, cocoa beans, and a variety of juices from fruit we had never heard of. We also saw a family drying grass and making brooms and sombreros, a hat museum, a coffee plantation, and a farmer protecting rare and unique palm trees. Julian always made sure he knew where we were on the tough climbs and on busy city streets. Javier was always ready with fresh water and to take your jacket once the day warmed up.
Sandra Morris, Ramsgate, England, UK
This cycle trip is a fantastic introduction to the highlands of Colombia - getting off the tourist trail to experience 'real' Colombia. This cycle trip was exceedingly well organised and led by a fantastic team - Adrian, Javier & Julian. Lots of support and laughter and the bicycle van was always parked ready with snacks just when you needed it up a hill. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone with a sense of adventure - it is indeed quite hilly, but the landscape, the downhills, the friendly people, the music, the fruit - make it all worth while. Visit Colombia!
Andrew & Yvonne Lindsay, Otford, England, UK
Really enjoyed trip. Excellent group. Great tour staff. We enjoyed Colombia.
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.)
Cheryl Hyslop, Ottawa, Canada
Another excellent redspokes tour! The Colombian people were incredibly warm and welcoming. The scenery and cycling terrain were amazing. We do not have that many shades of green where we live!
Adrian, Julian, Javier, and Geovanny Jr went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly and that we had opportunities to experience the best of the area. Many thanks for a great trip.
Eli Baron, Texas, United States
The Colombia trip was outstanding with extremely beautiful scenery and a great support.
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.
Robert Travers, Maryland, Baltimore, USA
I thought redspokes did a great job for its clients in the cycling adventure in Colombia. This is for the experienced cyclist as well as the intrepid traveler. I truly enjoyed seeing the beautiful countryside while riding my bike and the staff was wonderful
