There, a local cowboy will be expecting you with tame - yet powerful - horses ready for the adventure. After some instructions and advice, you'll start the ride, in the company of a guide (if option selected). Going up to 3,200 MAMSL, you will enter an Andean ecosystem, which is very different to the stereotypical image of the tropical jungle many visitors have about Colombia. After an hour's ride, you'll reach a fantastic lookout point where you'll be able to see the Monserrate Hill and even Bogotá in the distance.

This was such a fun and unique experience. We learned so much about coffee and it's entire lifecycle. I loved seeing the organic practices used by this female-owned business! The tour was fun and informative and Nick was a great host. We appreciated his sense of humor and engagement with us as he took time to specifically translate everything for us to English as well.

The most complete tour in the city. The tour was fabulous from the beginning. We visited islands where each one shows something completely different from the others. The snorkeling was great, lots of colorful fish. I saw very beautiful waters and beaches. The guides were very professional. And finally to see the plankton at night was wonderful.

This was a wonderful experience. So educational, I learned more in the hrs on this tour then I know l knew in the 5.5 yrs I worked for Starbucks. Marcella was fantastic host, the breakfast & lunch she provided was superb. Definitely, recommended.

I love it. Breakfast, lunch, picking coffee grains, all the explanations to process coffee. Marcela’s and Karen’s energy. And what about Nico, explanation in Spanish and English was so good. Worth it! Thank you so much

Great tour with Camilla as a guide and a local who explained everything to us and took a lot of time. Can just be recommended.
