Hacienda Coloma was an INCREDIBLE experience. Their products are also very well worth the price (e.g. coffee liqueur etc.) Staff were friendly and informative, the tour guide assigned to us, Jessica, was knowledgeable and gave us more info than we expected. An amazing experience from the coffee farm itself. However, the tour company, not so much. Lunch stop was less than excellent, and tour guide decided "for the sake of time and traffic" not to take us to the tropical fruit market - we weren't impressed with that decision.

The tour of the Hacienda is very well explained, the route is easy and the place in general is fine. The transfer is quite long, I do not recommend going on the weekend, as it takes from 90 minutes to 3 hours each way. The place of the waterfall is quite crowded so you can go down just for a moment. We didn't stop at the fruit market. So if you don't have much time in Bogotá, I don't recommend it. Although the tour of the Hacienda is well worth the transfer, it makes you lose more than half a day.

This ia an excellent tour with the meeting point in a very nice location. The trip was thru typical Bogota traffic. The tour guide was a very good driver. The stop at the waterfall was very beautiful. A little chilly bring a jacket. The tour of the coffee plantation was most excellent. The hat and basket for picking the coffee beans was a nice touch. The guides at the coffee plantation are very knowledgeable, friendly and speak good English. The coffee and liquor at the end of the tour were quite good.

The trip was fantastic. I booked this tour the night before at the last minute. It turned out that I happened to be the only person who booked the tour for that day, but the tour operator still honoured it, and provided a comfortable bus ride up to the farm. (approx. 2.5 hours from Bogota) I learned a lot about the various stages in coffee production, from the fruit to the cup. A must do tour for any coffee drinker.

Xiomana as guide and John as driver were a great duo. I only had one layover day in Bogota. The pickup and return transport worked wonderfully
