My fiancee and I had the best time with our guide Yuly. We met at the hostel/hotel and then went to get breakfast. The breakfast was at a local spot and it was great. We had option of tamales, caldo de costilla, and eggs, coffee, juice or chocolate. Afterwards, we went to Choachi and had some stops to learn more about the native plants and their properties; we also had the opportunity to try the coca leaf to help with elevation sickness. Throughout the breakfast/lunch, car ride, and hike, Yuly was very talkative, knowledgeable, and informative about the indigenous culture, the Andean mountains, the Chorrera, and the food. Yuly was also very responsive when we slowed down or stumbled over steps and she walked at a great pace for my partner and I. We also had the best arepas with guava and cheese of our lives!
We had such a great time visiting La Chorrera and just a magical day overall. Our guide Freddy was so friendly, knowledgeable and genuine. We ended up spending extra time on the hike, getting to see some additional parts of the park, and he never rushed us or made us feel like we had to skip anything. I went on this adventure by myself, but made some new friends and we just had such a great group and wonderful day. You cannot believe this amazing natural park is just outside Bogota. Highly recommend!
The coffee tour is a must do! This was our 2nd experience with Freddy and it was a great day. I loved going to a smaller organic farm vs a big manufacturer to see how they make coffee in the traditional way. It was a great scenic view to the town where the farm was and a great learning experience. Any tour from the true Colombian experience is a great option.
Entender o processo produtivo do café colombiano com as variantes de uma produção orgânica. Oportunidade única de observar e receber uma explicação muito detalhada sobre o processo, bem como as diferenças entre a produção do café orgânico e o café tradicional. Experiência imperdível!
i'm so glad we booked this tour! the hike was a little difficult for me, but it was a fantastic experience, and we really enjoyed the day. fredy was our guide and he was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. i would definately book another tour with him!
