What people are saying about Cundinamarca

The tour was really cool, we managed to pick a date where only our group of 4 people were visiting this tour. I did not have any idea that producing organic coffee could be such a hustle, really appreciate work that coffee producers do more now and I definitely have more respect for good cup of coffee. Our guide Nick was awesome, he showed us some landscape on the way to the farm and explained how this part of nature ecosystem works in the mountains and introduced us to some cool plants. The coffee farm owner Marcela (apology if I miss-spelled) was so energetic, shows us her farm, made Us delicious breakfast and Lunch and gave us opportunity to work as a coffee picker and guided us through all processes Which includes growing organic coffee and processes after picking the coffee berries. Definitely recommend this tour, one of most memorable experiences in Colombia for me. Thanks Nick and Marcela and Marcelas young assistant :)

Communication beforehand was straightforward and appropriate. We were picked up at our door punctually at the agreed time by a cheerful, enterprising driver and guide. During the whole day we had attentive and informative companions. We can only give them both great praise, because even on the return trip, which took a long time due to the traffic jam, they remained calm and friendly.

The coffee tour is a must do! This was our 2nd experience with Freddy and it was a great day. I loved going to a smaller organic farm vs a big manufacturer to see how they make coffee in the traditional way. It was a great scenic view to the town where the farm was and a great learning experience. Any tour from the true Colombian experience is a great option.

Great experience visiting a local coffee farm that produces its coffee onsite. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Small group, relaxed drive, interesting tour and great coffee :)
