What people are saying about Magdalena

Very fun and professional organization. They gave me a 15min window to be picked up and were there right on time. I learned so much from the tour guides, much more than any other coffee or chocolate tour I have done. It's highly recommended!

Good tour, exciting information about bamboo, coffee and cocoa.

Nice hike to the waterfall. The description is not quite consistent with the actual tour. From the 2 hour hike nothing was mentioned and the big hammocks were also missing ... The tour but we still liked it and we would book it again.

Literally the perfectly managed trip and a great experience. Went with 3 Jesuses and they were all fantastic. From info to translation to cooking! Really can’t fault any of it.
