First up in 2017 is the highly anticipated "Expo Artesanias Colombia: The Crafts of Colombia: Bogota & Cartagena" tour runs December 5-13, 2017. It will feature a two-day, deep-dive immersion into the Expoartesanias handcraft fair. Entering its 27th year, the fair focuses on the finest in Colombia's diverse traditional and contemporary crafts. This special access tour offers travelers insider opportunities to "meet the artisans" and learn about their culture.
Included are one-on-ones with the Wayuu, Aruaco, Zenu, Waunaan, and Amazona people, so you can actually purchase works after engaging in meaningful interactions with the artisans themselves. Taking place at Corferias in Bogotá, travelers will explore the highlights of Bogotá, in addition to attending the craft fair. From Bogotá, the tour moves to and continues in Cartagena on the Caribbean coast, where cumbia, salsa, vallenato and other rhythms flow into the night!

The Expo-Artesanias tour is part of a series of "Craft and Culture route" tours in Colombia organized by Tia Stephanie Tours. These experiential trips invite travelers to learn about both the culture and bio diversity of the country.
