Incredible Adventure

Traveled around Colombia independently for 5 weeks. Thanks to Paula and the whole team at IMPULSE, we had a fabulous time. They took care of us every step of the way -- from the initial planning stages to the last day of our trip. Always available and always ready to help. We found this agency to be courteous, friendly, and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend IMPULSE Travel to anyone who wants to experience the real Colombia.

Maria the Naturalist (5 days in the Tayrona and Minca) and Catalina The Outdoorsy (6 day in the Coffee Region) (October/November 2016). Organisation was very professional. On both trips we had great guides. Their enthusiasm for Colombia, its nature and its people was palpable. We got to see amazing places, accommodations were at high level and local food was always delicious. We can defenitely recommend Destino Bogota (Now Impulse Travel)....they showed us Colombia off the beaten track.

I do not have enough words to describe how fortunate my boyfriend and I feel to have discovered Destino Bogota (now Impulse Travel). We did our first tour with them a couple days into our trip, a hike to Chorrera, the tallest waterfall in Colombia. The waterfall is a hidden gem that not many touring companies in Colombia cover, but Destino Bogota (now Impulse Travel) had the most amazing adventure tours which was exactly what we were looking for. There was a small mix up in our reservation but the second it was discovered one of the owning partners (Rodrigo) contacted us and actually decided to join us as our guide on the tour. Overall, my boyfriend and I agree that without Rodrigo, Alejandro, and Fabio, our experience of Colombia would not have been as entrancing. When I go back, I will book every tour with this company. They really know how to combine adventure, history, and great personality into one wonderful experience.

Destino Bogota (now Impulse Travel) did an amazing job organizing my family's vacation to Colombia! We were traveling throughout Colombia with two children, ages 6 and 7. Sebastian did everything for us from creating our itinerary, to booking our hotels, flights and transportation. He also arranged for fabulous guides that really helped us to get to know the cities and places that we were staying. During the entire planning process and our stay in Colombia, Sebastian was available to answer questions and make suggestions. Our trip was awesome! The hotels were fabulous! The guides were knowledgeable and helpful with the children! The transportation was always on time with clean cars and helpful drivers. This agency provides superior service. I am grateful for all of their hard work to make our trip to Colombia so amazing! I highly recommend them for their professionalism, organization, knowledge of Colombia and great service.

I cannot rate this company highly enough! The passion they have for showing you their country is contagious! I have used them 3x already for two separate trips! Last year for a city tour of Cartagena - which has a fascinating history and is just beautiful! Bitten by the Colombia bug I went back in April this year and explored Bogota on a city tour as well! I then received excellent advice for a roadtrip from Cartagena to Tayrona national park and stayed in the most beautiful recommendation...... whilst the coffee region tour is simply spectacular! This is firm that cares, is incredibly professional and so very helpful. I also love the fact it is run by locals, rather than being a multi-national with an outpost!!! Rodrigo is fantastic!

I recently used Destino Bogota (now Impulse Travel) for both tours and airport transfers when I visited both Bogota and Cartagena. All of the guides and drivers were extremely personable, professional, informative, and reliable. Rodrigo was always there to answer any questions I had and to make sure that I received all of the tours and services that I booked. The tours I took with them were the highlight of my trip and gave me a great insight of Colombia. I would definitely use their services if I ever had the opportunity to visit Colombia and would strongly recommend Destino Bogota to anyone visiting Colombia.

We spent two days touring Colombia with Destino Bogota (Now Impulse Travel). In that short amount of time, we managed to visit a coffee plantation, rappel down waterfalls, raft in level 3-4 rapids, explore various districts in the city of Bogota, visit local culinary attractions, shop, and more. I'm still blown away by the number of activities our tour guide was able to fit into our trip without making it feel rushed. In addition, our group wasn't very fluent in Spanish, and our tour guide went above and beyond to make sure he translated everything for us and answered all of our questions. Our trip with Destino Bogota (Now Impulse Travel) was one of the best in the entire trip and I look forward to touring with them again when we return to Colombia!

We have had a wonderful wonderful (I say this twice, because we took their services twice in two weeks) experience. David has been our guide in two of the tours, and we have been so lucky to have him and the Destino Bogota tours (Now Impulse Travel) to arrange for our weekend trips. The entire trip was so well planned, that we just had to sit in the bus and enjoy ourselves. The weekend trips were the highlight of our stay in Bogota. I highly recommend them for any of your travel needs. They do a great job at taking care of their guests, and their service attitude speaks for it...

Diego from Destino Bogota (now Impulse Travel) helped me go on a great trip in Colombia! In addition to Bogota, they found several activities for me in Medellin and Cartagena. My favorite was the paragliding adventure my girlfriend and I had near Bogota. I would highly recommend Destino Bogota (now Impulse Travel) for your travel needs in Colombia.
