  • Great option to know more about the coffee culture. The park is small and you don't have to walk a lot but the guides explain the whole process and have entertaining activities to involve you in the culture. A must go in the coffee triangle.
  • Very traditional, interesting tour and beautiful sites. A place to inmerse yourself in the culture of coffee
  • I really enjoyed it, thought it was very well done. The tour guide was friendly and cracking jokes, lots of fun. Beautiful place and informative tour. It's more theatrical than the other tours, but I liked that about it.
  • Very beautiful place ! The staff were very friendly and were able to explain well the transformation from the sprout to the very end as being a coffee. I learned so much about coffee. They allow you to go out into the fields and also pick out coffee beans! They also make you dress up in the typical Colombian outfits. It was so much fun!
  • Great for Spanish speakers! Our guide was hilarious and made sure we had plenty of fun as we learned about coffee cultivation, processing, and culture. Not recommend for non Spanish speakers because you will kiss out on a lot of the jokes!
