If you LOVE Nature, you will LOVE this fast-paced, fun, and informative tour. Sebastian is the most attentive and caring guide and he is very clearly passionate about what he does. He know all about the flora and fauna of the area and communicates it all with humour and enthusiasm. Prepare ourself to GET WET!! Much of the walking (about 3 hours in total) is through ankle-knee-deep fresh water, and it's quite tough going over VERY slippery rocks, so, as Sebastian says: FOCUS!! The hard work is totally worth it though for the vision at the end - the big waterfall and pool! If you can bare the cool temperature, get right in under the torrents to get a massage from Pachamama herself!

This was such a good tour! Vero was great, she did such a good job explaining everything about coffee. I loved coffee before this tour but after leaving I love it even more. Lunch was delicious! The experience and the information will be loved by any coffee lover. My family and I loved it and will definitely be back. Mateo was really great too going above and beyond for us.

Best experience I’ve ever had ! The coffee tour was very good, I learned how to grow coffee and planted my own tree. After the tour I went to the sauna then after I got an amazing full body massage. It was so relaxing! To finish off I swam in the natural spring .The guide was amazing, they go above and beyond to explain the entire process ! I will return with my friends!

This coffee tour is super informative, you learn so much! The guides are so nice and so welcoming onto their farm. Make sure you wear tennis shoes, you will be walking up rocks and mud through the coffee farm, also bug spray is a must. bring a small bag try not to bring a backpack.

Sebastian is an awesome tour guide, very knowledgeable, helpful, easygoing and fun! I highly recommend him
