Schlechte Organisation der Abholung. Fahrer kam 30min zu spät. Sprach nur Spanisch obwohl wir eine Englische Tour gebucht hatten. Auf Grund der Verspätung konnten wir die Plantagenführung in San Alberto nicht mehr machen. Wir wurden mit dem Kaffee-Tasting abgespeist und niemand hat uns richtig informiert. Auf eigene Initiative hin mussten wir den Operator (Impuls-Travel) kontaktieren. Nach 1h Diskussion hat man uns in eine andere Hacienda gebracht für die Plantagenführung. Schlechte Kommunikation und Preis-Leistung war es nicht wert. Buenavista ist jedoch ein herziges Dörfchen und die Aussicht von der Terrasse in San Alberto ist einzigartig. Für diesen Teil hat sich die Tour gelohnt. Der Service war jedoch mehr als schlecht.
