Hola amigos, my name is ANDRES and I'm looking forward to living the COLOMBIAN COFFEE EXPERIENCE with you.

I was born in these BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS and although I have had the opportunity to travel to more than 24 countries, I still think Colombia is the most beautiful place on Earth. I started working as a tour guide taking groups of Colombians to different destinations around my country; this is why I have extensive knowledge of all of Colombia. After some time I started taking these groups to other countries. This made me want to show the world all THE GREAT WONDERS WE HAVE here in Colombia, so I decided to study and become a local guide! I have learned a lot from guides in other countries from taking part in their tours.
If you want to know everything about Colombian coffee culture, see how we grow and cultivate THE BEST COFFEE IN THE WORLD and follow the process from the seed to the cup, I'M YOUR GUY! And if you want to fly, whether it be in a hot air balloon, paragliding, or zip lining, over plantain farms, citrus and coffee plantations, we'll do that too! Anything from a relaxing river day floating on a bamboo raft to hiking WITH THE MOST TERRIFIC VIEWS, meeting the tallest Palm in the world or walking along charming towns, you must come and spend some time with me!

Very informative guide. He was also flexible about time spent at the sites we wanted to see. Price was very reasonable. Totally private tour with fun extras.
