I am planning a trip with my girlfriend to Venezuela in the last week of April for a week and was hoping someone would help me out with some suggestions. We are looking for a trip with a lot of culture and adventure. That is also safe. We are willing to pay for a tour guide. Are there any suggestions for places and any referrals for tour guides?

I was looking into the Angel Falls area but it will be in its dry season and didn't hear much about it during that season. I also didn't find anything about the 7 day adventure that a tour offered. Do you think 7 days would be better spent traveling to different areas?

Any help is much appreciated!!! Thanks

Can't help much I'm afraid, but unless you are a jungle bunny, 7 days at Angel Falls will drive you insane. I recommend trying to include Los Roques in your plans. Check out the Venezuela travel blogs http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-count...zuela/tpod.html. Also click on "tours" at the top of the page. I know a Brit who lived in Venezuela and has an agency in Atlanta. Look up his site. http://www.lostworldadventures.com/countri...zuela/index.htm
Good luck and Cheers

Hi,

The Gran Sabana would be a good option to explore, also in the Bolivar state of Venezuela. You can do a 6 day hike to Roraiama, or do a tour exploring the beautiful tepuys. Also in Bolivar are tours to the Rio Orinoco and Kaura, where you can stay with small indigenous communities (although I am not sure if they would be running in the dry season). Another option to explore for 7 days, if you want a bit more variety and adventure is Merida in the Andes. Nearby there are loads of small, traditional villages to explore (would recommend Los Nevados)...and a lot of adventure activities such as canyoning and paragliding. There are several good tour agencies near Parque Heroinas in Merida...From Merida you can catch a 4 day tour to Los Llanos (the grasslands of Venezuela), which by April should have a lot of wildlife. I have some pictures of these places on my blog (all except the Gran Sabana - haven´t made it there yet!) Hope that helps at least!!
