We will begin in hacienda El Paraíso which is the place where our most influential romantic novel takes place and we will explore its setting which is full of nature. The second place is the Hacienda "Piedechinche" where we will learn all about the sugar cane production and its history in the region. All transportation fees and entrance fees are included, as well as a typical lunch.

We learned lots more about the early 1800's and the beginning of the sugar cane industry in Palmira. The German Jewish family James Martin Eter and the fusion of several cultures; indigenous Colombians, African slaves, and German Jews resulted in an unusually rich culinary,

Hello Judy!. Thank you for the recommendation about the tour you did with Valley Adventours. On this tour we visit the main haciendas of our region including one which is the inspiration of a romantic novel and another that is the icon of our sugar cane abundance. The Hacienda El Paraíso and the Sugar Cane Museum or Hacienda Piedechinche that holds years of culture and knowledge. These two tourism icons rich in architecture, art, flora and fauna receive every year an important number of visitors looking for a quiet walk surrounded by beautiful landscapes and history. Both haciendas keep the memory alive of what life was like in the XVIII and XIX centuries, maintaining the pleasant freshness, adorned with rose bushes and illuminated by the radiance of the first rays of sun every morning. Until a next time in Cali....Greetings from our team.

The two locations we visited was beautiful and our driver/tour guide Gabriel, was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was just the two of us plus one other person, so it was almost a private tour. The lunch was just so-so, but part of the experience is trying Colombian food

Our expectations of the tour were exceeded. Not only did our guide know all about the history, but he could tell our little group quite a bit about fruits, trees and plants. We were accompanied by a second guide who was learning her trade and spoke perfect English so that she
