THREE REASONS TO TRAVEL WITH PALENQUE TOURS
FIVE REASONS TO LOVE PALENQUE TOURS
Several years ago, Markus decided to live in and for Colombia. How come? He set his sight on protecting the environment and taking a stand for social equality, while beating the drum for Colombia’s beauty and uniqueness. He has found the perfect solution for doing it all and, ladies and gentlemen, the solution has a name – it’s called Palenque Tours. If you ever happen to see a vegan rider sweeping across Antioquia’s mountains with a skateboard fastened to his back, you most probably witnessed the travel agency’s Manager and Product Director giving full scope to his adventurous, free spirit.
When chasing his dream, Maxime took a detour through the financial industry in France, Australia and Switzerland. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to Colombia, where he is now – not chasing but – living his dream of sharing his passion for Colombia through ecotourism. He really enjoys – guess what – traveling and is magically pulled towards the sea. When spending a relaxed Sunday in one of Antioquia’s traditional towns, he almost seems Colombian already. Invite him to a glass of wine with cheese though, and his French origin is impossible to hide.
Our Administrative Director Andrea really puts her heart and soul into protecting the environment, ever since she started studying Environmental Engineering. After University she put herself out for various environmental projects throughout the country. When getting to know Markus, she immediately knew that Palenque Tours was THE way for her to support Colombia’s local communities and protect its rich biodiversity. Does Andrea ever take a break from fighting for environmental conservation? Rarely, but every once in a while she does find some time for long hikes, yoga and sometimes even a good movie.
Luise has always been fascinated by Latin America. Check her CV – her master’s degree in Latin American Studies proves it. She loves contributing to leading Colombia towards a more sustainable economy through eco- and community based tourism. In her role as an environmental advocate she defends Palenque Tours’ principles. Her dream is to travel the world, while making it a better, fairer place. In order to have what it takes to accomplish that, she only needs three things: learn something new every day, her loved ones by her side and some delicious, tasty food.
