I really liked this tour and I think I was very lucky to have Denis as my guide as he did a great job. Denis was very knowledgeable about the places, shared tons of information, and was very communicative throughout the tour. I definitely recommend him as your guide! The coffee farm shows history of the coffee making process which I found very interesting; the coffee they served there was very delicious and the lunch was tasty and a huge portion! I really enjoyed the cheese farm - Celia and Luisa were wonderful hosts! Their story of how they started it was very interesting and inspiring! Their handmade cheese from cow and goat's milk were super super delicious!! It is definitely worth the visit, and I am sure that you will not leave with empty hands. :-)
