I am a native of Cali, Colombia and enjoy traveling to new places and learning about different cultures. I have been leading tours to all parts of Cali for over 20 years, and I am passionate about Colombia's culture, natural beauty, and its friendly people. I have led tours to various parts of Cali that are rarely seen by most tourists including the beautiful town of San Cipriano, which is only accessible via the "motobruja" rail car. There are no co-hosts at this moment, so the tour would be lead by me.
