Thanks for showing interest in one of my favorites combinations in Venezuela​
After 19 years "retired" as a Tour Guide and being a prisoner at home during the COVID19 confinement, I ​missed​ my days ​traveling in Venezuela​ so much that I decided to get back to where it all began back in 1994. In this ​unique​ ​journey​, we will ​witness the Catatumbo lightning phenomenon over the Maracaibo Lake ​and head from there to the highlands of the Venezuelan Andes full of beautiful landscapes, national parks, outdoor activities and authentic people that live in this region of the country. We will also visit the amazing Llanos where we will have intense wildlife observation tours in the immense savannas. We will also visit the "terribly dangerous" Caracas city, the place where I was born, currently live and raise my kids. I think I will change your point of view in a drastic way. Let me show you why Caracas becomes one of the best parts of all my clients' experiences. You will be amazed by this eye opener visit.
Angel Falls...we will do it in the "Old School" style: my way! Forget about those boring "lodge tours" that you nowadays find in instagram, let me get you deeper in nature and show the best around Auyan Tepui in Canaima National Park.

​Will you join me?
