Explore Medellin and a coffee farm on the same day
When time is of essence and there's only one day to explore the best of Medellín and one of Colombia's biggest prides, then this is the tour that gets the job done on the same day.
We will focus on Medellín's most important attractions but adding a visit to a small working farm and learn about the different steps that are needed for going from picking coffee berries to brewing a great cup of coffee.
The order of this itinerary might vary depending on the availability of the coffee farmer.
We can start with the Medellín City Tour covering the Poblado area, Parque Lleras, Vía Primavera, Provenza, Golden Mile, Pueblito Paisa, Wishes Park and Botero Square and after that head out the outskirts of Envigado where the coffee farm is located.
We could also start with the coffee farm and then go and do the City Tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

We started out trip with a visit to a coffee farm (Fabian, the proprietor, was a hoot) - there were actually some ripe beans on the trees and we got to do some picking, navigating the challenges of picking coffee on a hilly landscape. Afterwards, we visited District 13 for the graffiti tour - while interesting, there is better graffiti to be found in other parts of Medellin. If you like Botero, the square (our last stop) is worth seeing, but otherwise the downtown area does not have much to offer.
