“DE UNA” is a typically Colombian expression that is difficult to translate directly into English. It is very popular among friends and is best defined as “let’s go” or “right now”. You don’t have to think long about it; instead, everything sounds so good that you don’t hesitate a minute. We called our travel and tour agency DE UNA both because of the meaning of the expression, which describes our tours very well, as well as due to the fact that “de una” is a typically Colombian expression.
During our trips to South America we were surprised that such an amazing and beautiful place as Colombia is rarely visited by tourists. Colombia has all the ingredients that are necessary for having a wonderful vacation. It is a land of varied geographical extremes and an amazing diversity of flora and fauna. With coastlines on both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, the desert of La Guajira in the northeast which extends into the Caribbean, three Andean mountain ranges dissecting the country, Amazon, savannah and rainforest plus assorted mountains and islands; Colombia offers an environment to suit many tastes.
In contrast to other South American countries, however, the absolute highlights of Colombia are not to be found within its natural and geographical boundaries. Rather, here it is the people that make the difference. If something should be said about Colombians and Colombia, it is that everything here is done passionately: living, partying and arguing. "Intense" might be a word that describes not only 44 million warm hearted people but that also applies to the whole experience of visiting Colombia.
DE UNA gives you the opportunity to really get to know Colombia. During our tours we show you Colombia how it is, and we don’t just want to visit the most beautiful sites but also encourage interaction with the local population. Frequently during our tours you will find yourself taking part in the local way of life. Our style of traveling, the sites visited, the modes of transport and the places of accommodation are chosen in accordance with our philosophy of traveling mentioned above.
As guides we don’t just want to serve as “the guide” or as the person who organizes and accompanies the tour. Instead, we also strive to be active participants in making the travel experience of the group the best in can be and provide the best information possible. We'll give recommendations about good places to eat and drink locally, and we'll advise about the best places to go out, to show you why we like Colombia so much.
Besides our tours, we can also offer general information on a variety of topics like visa requirements, Spanish classes, safety and security, where to go, information about hotels, etc. We are a good source of information for anyone who would like to know more about this fascinating country.
