The guide was very nice, open and well versed in English. We walked to a chocolate shop where the owner was already waiting for us. First there was a short lecture about the family and their chocolate and then the production was explained. 5 different chocolates, various local fruits and the raw cocoa bean were tasted. You could make 3 pralines from the chocolate and fruit. We finished off with a hot chocolate and two Colombian pastries. I really liked it, also because I was alone with the guide :)

Great variety of coffee flavours and preparation methods. We tried 4 different beans made with an aeropress, Turkish coffee maker, pour over, and coolest of all, a coffee Siphon. The cafe space itself was super stylish and staff did a great job explaining the whole process

Marcella was a PHENOMENAL tour guide! We are so grateful we signed up for this amazing tour. The coffee farm is unbelievable and the drive out there is absolutely gorgeous!!! A must see!!!

Gabriela the guide took us to 6 really delicious shops and always explained what the different dishes are all about. Vegetarians get more side dishes, but they're really good too!

I had a really nice time. It was nice to hear about the history of the city and to visit all the different parts. Our guide José was absolutely brilliant.
