Luis (Lucho) our guide, is such an awesome man with a kind soul. I just wanna thank him for everything he's done for us this evening. Please keep up the great work. Keep up the great energy. And thank you to Tanya too for going above and beyond. I boomed the bike tour twice, one in the evening and one in the morning. She gave me the option to have the other one refunded since the bike tour is the same route. You don't get that kind of service anymore in the world. They also offer other tours like mountain bike, waterfall hike, coffee tour, guatape tour, pablo escobar tour etc. I'm going to get more tours from them. Such an awesome team and company. Thank you again Luis, my brother and friend and Tanya.
