My girlfriend and I enjoyed the tour very much. Very informative about the process of making different types of coffee and how to recognize good quality coffee. The tour is bilingual, Don Carlos, the owner of the farm did the English part and he is a very cheerful and amicable person, taking his time to explain things and making sure we understood everything. The Spanish part was done by a girl, my girlfriend was attending that part as she is from Colombia. She was very amicable and funny and explained everything very well too. Me and my girlfriend were the only people in the group that did the additional horse ride, I've never ridden a horse in my life but Don Carlos made sure to explain everything and his employee helped me throughout the horse tour. Overall it was a great experience and we would really like to do it again when we return to Medellín in the future.

It was all perfect, Veronica's guide was very nice and she explained the whole history of the coffee to us very well. In addition, the almuerzo was very rich. 100% recommendable!

The whole experience was top notch - pickup, tour, coffee and food were all great and the farm is gorgeous! Carlos is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommend!
