I went today with my boyfriend and we thought it was a super experience! The attention of the guide (Jose) could not be better, he worried all the time that we understood what he was telling us. The tastings, the tour, the information, all super. I highly recommend the tour and the company, apart from the fact that if you already paid when booking through the page, they do not ask you for anything additional.

Really nice tour. The tour guide knew what she was talking about, answered questions and was really nice. It's a nice slow pace, so you won't get tired and have time to take pictures.

The guide was very good and the driver very kind. We enjoyed our time with them in Bogota. I recommend them

Great tour, great guide, the history was very interesting, the fruit tasting and coffee were also good

Great tour of the city, very informative and highly recommend.
