Travel to Colombia with Confidence
At Chubit Tours we have included new health and safety measures to ensure we have gone that extra step to keep you safe during the global pandemic. All tours departing in 2021 will include unlimited complimentary face masks and sanitizers. While we are expecting this tour to go without any issue as governments around the world begin to ease restrictions we understand that planning travel during a global pandemic is risky, so we are offering a 100% refund policy up to 30 days prior to departure if the United States or Colombia is closed to tourism, has an active quarantine and/or has an active curfew during the dates of travel.

As we work on finalizing the itinerary and pricing, please know that the itinerary and its pricing are tentative.
