Amazing day tour to organic coffee farm! For the second time I got most amazing guide Andrea, who makes this tours friendly, pleasent, relaxing and so enjoyable! She is super knowledgeable, also patient and kind to answer so many questions that we had! Farm is beautiful, and view around in breathtaking! Greenery, mountains, other farms...you got relexed just by watching it. Although I started learning Spanish month ago I was able to understand majority what the lady who is owner of the farm was explaining, that's how much they are putting effort for you to understand and learn. Everything else, if I didn't understand Andrea would explain in English. If you don't speak at all you will get all info in English, I wanted to practice Spanish! Farm owners (mother and her daughter) are such a wonderful ladies, pleasent, happy, and kind. Growing coffee looks so beautiful when they are talking about it. Breakfast, lunch and their own coffee were perfect! Worth more than you pay it! Don't miss

Words hardly can explain how amazing this tour is! Beautiful nature, gorgeous waterfall and friendly, positive, constantly smiling guide Andrea! Group was lovely, so many information about the region, nature, biodiversity... Standing just a few meters from waterfall is unique experience, that you have to try. Breakfast and lunch that were included were amazing! If in Bogota even for a few days, this trip you should make!

The tour guide (Lizeth Beltran) is by far the best tour guide that I have ever had. She is a walking encyclopedia. Her vast knowledge about the history of Colombia is phenomenal. Lizeth is very pleasant and great to be around with. Keep up the good work Lizeth.

The visit to the lagoon was really great. It made the tour of the Gold Museum in Bogota relevant to see where some of the pieces came from. As well, the Salt Cathedral was amazing…and the guides gave us ample time at each spot. Well done and great value!

Exciting environment and excellent food. The service was great.
