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!
A Recent Review of this guide
I have only limited time in Colombia and really wish to visit Salento and Cocora Valley, so I decided to take the private tour with ToursByLocals. I have to say that I made the right decision. The tour was well organised from logistic, food and everything. Not forgetting my excellent guide Andres. He is so knowledgable and patient. Explained all the questions and doubt. Giving me insight about the local life. I like how relax he was, not rushing through the tour. Highly recommended! Thanks again Andres
