    Experiencia única dentro de la Sierra Nevada. con exigencia física que se sobrelleva muy bien. Muy buenas las actividades del cacao y el café. Entiendo es necesario tener en cuenta los requisitos de vestimenta, especialmente calzado adecuado dado que el recorrido implica caminos con mucho barro y agua

    Die Tour war sehr gut organisiert. Wir wurden pünktlich von unserem Hotel abgeholt und auch wieder zurück gebracht. Wir waren etwas verunsichert, da wir von einem Taxi geholt wurden welches uns direkt nach Minca gefahren hat wo wir die anderen Teilnehmer sowie den Guide getroffen haben. Die Tour wurde auf Englisch geführt, daher hat die Kommunikation einwandfrei funktioniert. Das Mittagessen war sehr gut, es gab auch eine vegetarische Variante. Bargeld dabei zu haben ist sehr empfehlenswert wenn man Kaffee und Kakao erwerben möchte.

    Really enoyed myself on this junglewalk annex coffee and chocolate trip. Well organized, friendly and very knowledgeable guide. Definitely recommend, value for money. Just beware, this was sold as an English tour, but 13 of the 15 participants were spanish speakers. The guide was very willing to assist in translation, but in the end it was a spanish tour . Not a problem for us as we speak some spanish, still five stars
