Why a dutchie started Callejeros Tours in Cali Colombia
I am Niels Nieman, and I am from the Netherlands. In 2010, I was traveling through South America for a year. My trip started in Argentina and I slowly made my way up to Colombia. When I entered Colombia I had about 3 months left to travel. The second place in Colombia I visited was Cali. I planned to stay here for about 3 nights, but I fell in love with the city and ended up staying for 2 months.
To make it even better I met a Caleña in the last 2 weeks of my stay and fell in love. The 2 following years I traveled from Holland to Colombia and back until I married and got a job in a hostel were I worked for about 1,5 years. I noticed that even though there is a lot to do and see in and around Cali most travelers felt there was nothing to do in the city exept for dancing salsa.
I saw a great opportunity to start my own company and do what I like to do. That is, show people around Cali, the city I fel in love with a few years before. So I started Callejeros Tours, a small tour operator, that offers alternative tours in and around Santiago de Cali in Colombia. With our tours we try so show you Cali, one of the most authentic cities of Colombia, and its amazing culture. So if you really want to see something from this special place, and enjoy this city like I do. Callejeros Tours is the way to go.
