January 20-30, 2020!
This 10-day, small group (12-24 passengers) tour is a new offering which has the allure of a red-hot culture steeped in history, art and tradition. Colombia is south America’s Andean oasis, a technicolor amalgam of culture, history and romance from Bogota, Colombia’s capital, to Cartegena. We’ll visit colorful markets, offering a sensory explosion of exotic produce and flowers, the Museo del Oro, where 55,000 pieces of gold from pre-Hispanic cultures are exhibited, mystical valleys and rolling jade hills in Colombia’s coffee zone, mural art in city neighborhoods, and a traditional flower farm where lush arrangements serve as Medellin’s cultural symbol. Traditional musicians and dancers in colorful costumes and selling fruit from the tops of their turbaned heads will entertain us, while the majesty of the Corcora Valley will be experienced aboard equipped 4x4 jeeps known as “Willys.” Throughout, we’ll indulge in menus highlighting traditional ingredients, taste Colombia’s delicious coffee, and explore historic sites. This is the cultural adventure you have been waiting for!
