A Recent Review of this tour

My Mom and I had a wonderful time on this tour. We enjoyed all the activities that were planned; the reception coffee, the great homemade lunch, crushing and cooking coffee beans, and local beekeeping. The staff and our tour guide were very warm and friendly. We had a lot of fun on this tour and we have a lot of memories that we took away. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in getting to experience local agriculture and way of life.
