About the tour

During the last few days my country has experienced an extreme wave of violence at the hands of the public forces, who, sent by Alvaro Uribe Velez, a silent dictator who has ruled for the last few years, are massacring those who oppose him. Join me in a talk about politics, drug trafficking and the truth that does not appear in the news but is lived by the people, discover why a country with all the resources and that for so long has fought a fight against drugs still lives on its ravages. Let's walk and talk, I live in San José del Guaviare, one of the places most affected by these phenomena and, to be frank, even I am surprised at the way people lived here. Let's talk!

In the spirit of the people, who are tending the land, giving life by any means for their young and loved. A true reality reflected in the people reaching for hope growing alongside the that which has taken over.

Nathaly is an awesome guide. She’s very knowledgeable and gave us very valuable information. Sad about the drug trade and its effect on so many people. I pray that she stays safe. Great tour. I’d like to book more tours with her.
