If you come to Colombia, to see how coffee is produced, from planting to roasting is simply a must! And this tour did exactly that, we could see and touch(literally) the whole process on hacienda. And the final coffee and rum tasting was also excellent. We also saw variety of other plants, waterfalls and fruit market, where we could buy fruit.(along the way) Minibus in which we traveled from and back to Bogota was also quite spacious and comfortable, but the ride was quite long (take a book or something) especially during the peak. Overall, I totally recommend.

Loved this experience! It was a fascinating mix of both local cuisine and interesting info at a relaxed pace. There was lots and lots of tasty food, it was definitely great value for money. The guide was absolutely wonderful, really enjoyed his company. It was raining a little but that didn't dampen our spirits. This was without doubt the highlight of my trip to Colombia. I highly recommend, thanks to A Chef's Tour!
