Comments for The Colombian Amazon Tour

    I have not been on this particular tour but I have been to Leticia and the Colombian Amazon. It is a beautiful, unspoiled place to go. I recommend this trip before this part of Colombia becomes too popular with tourists. I have also been to the Salt Cathedral which is a wonderful and exciting experience. I hope many travelers will sign up for this trip. It was full of adventure and the best way to see the Amazon. Bogota is a beautiful and safe city to visit, too.
