Book your tour in or around Samaipata... IN SAMAIPATA !
by Susanne Lijmbach
I just came across the Bolivia Bella website and feel the need to send you a message. It is nice to read the positive information about Samaipata which is written in a pleasant way.
Samaipata IS a beautiful village with a very good atmosphere and is welcoming to its visitors. There is a lot to do and see around the village as well. One could come for a week and do or visit something different every day.
We have our travel and tour agency Kaleidoscope Travel S.R.L. (before Ben Verhoef Tours) established in the centre of Samaipata since 11 years already.
What I do regret is that I don’t find any name or link to a tour operator in Samaipata. You advise a tour operator from Sa. Cruz to go on a tour in Samaipata, though there are quite some tour operators in Samaipata itself!
If there are not enough tourists to form a group in Samaipata, for sure there will not be enough tourists in one tour agency in Sa. Cruz to form a group for a tour in Samaipata.
Because of the distance, it is more logical to undertake the tour from Samaipata instead of Sa. Cruz (120 km from Samaipata).
Tour operators and guides in Samaipata want to have work as well!
Many Samaipata tour operators work together; if a group is not full they will call a college to ask if he has some clients for the same tour.
Here follows a small list of the better tour operators in Samaipata, but there are more than these.
I mention our own agency first, since I’m writing you.
Kaleidoscope Travel S.R.L. arranges travels throughout Bolivia (we specialize in custom-made trips) and we do tours in and around Samaipata: El Fuerte, Las Cuevas, La Pajcha, N.P. Amboró, the Condor Hike, Laguna Volcán, the Ché Guevara Tour, the Old Trade Road from Samaipata to Sucre, etc.
Kaleidoscope Travel S.R.L., Calle Campero s/n esq. Gral. Saavedra, tel. 3 944 6365, cel. 726 10 416, www.kaleidoscope-travel.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
So there are:
Michael Blendinger Nature Tours;
Tierra Madre Tours;
I’m sure that tourists can find the tour they like to do in or around Samaipata with one of Samaipata’s tour agencies.
Thank you very much for your attention.
