Absolute best tour of our trip. Andres our tour guide was phenomenal. We had so much fun and got to experience so much. The food and the cooking was excellent. Was nice that we could add on a beer or a wine.
The only thing richer than the experience was the coffee and chocolate

Amazing tour with a guide who is more of a friend showing you his favorite parts of his home town rather than than a tour guide giving you facts about the area - Andres definitely knows how to show you a taste of the culture. The tour starts with him picking you up then going to a local coffee roaster who only has four options, light roast, medium roast, dark roast and a bourbon roast; the smells tell you all you need to know and why they don't bother with more options. After that there's a short walk to a coffee producer in an old colonial house and a tasting and a history of chocolate then another walk to the kitchen where you spend the bulk of the time. The kitchen and the chefs altered the menu slightly since someone in the party has gluten allergies and the required twist on the authentic dishes was delicious and well worth the trip. Combined with the coffee and the intimate familiarity with every step that you gain doing the tour I cannot recommend this highly enough.
