Why Colombia?

Essential Colombia

It’s always nice to investigate and inquire a little deeper into the place that you’re going to visit. Not only does it get the excitement and travel juices flowing, it goes some way to preparing you for what lays ahead…

What makes us different?

We’re not your average tour operator in the sense that we love exploring, investigating and developing our own cutting-edge experiences. That’s what keeps us ahead of the rest, and gives us the capability to offer breathtaking experiences unlike any other…

Testimonials

“… I couldn’t have asked for a better experience…the tour was pretty much nothing short of a dream for both the tour elements but also the highly personal aspects I had mentioned. Camilo and Alejandro really facilitated a very personal experience for me and you and The Colombian Project in turn facilitated the whole experience; and for that I’m eternally grateful. Thanks again! – Simon Winograd, June 2016, NYC USA.
