Poor organization of pickup. Driver was 30 minutes late. Only spoke Spanish even though we had booked an English tour. Due to the delay, we were no longer able to do the plantation tour in San Alberto. We were fobbed off with the coffee tasting and nobody informed us properly. On our own initiative we had to contact the operator (Impuls-Travel). After 1 hour of discussion, we were taken to another hacienda for the plantation tour. Poor communication and value for money was not worth it. However, Buenavista is a lovely village and the view from the terrace in San Alberto is unique. For this part the tour was worth it. However, the service was beyond bad.
