Amazing! From meeting Alejandro and our driver Wilson, to having breakfast at a local cafe, to the hike. Alejandro is sooo smart and even knows a lot about plants. I love the whole experience. It's peaceful despite the trek. The dogs, the locals. A+++. It's a rural, lush side of Bogotá. I highly recommend it.

Cristian García se asegura que la experiencia en Bogotá sea enriquecedora, amena y sobre todo, segura. No podemos pedir mejor guía que él. Su conocimiento en historia, medio ambiente y lugares interesantes no tiene par. Gracias por hacer de esta experiencia, una inolvidable!

My trip was so amazing that I bonded and became friends with my guide Ivonne who is half Irish and half Colombian and I am Irish. We had an amazing day together, two friends hitting the city of Bogotá and I would highly recommend her.

All very good. The excellent guide and quality. In the farm, excellent reception and everything well organized to learn the entire cycle of coffee. Improve: driving is not kind to the passenger in the last row. You end up dizzy.

Great trip. My guide and driver were super nice. I enjoyed the day very much.
