About The Avocado Tour
We have been in the Avocado business for over 16 years and we feel happy to open our farm to the public so everybody can learn more about this farm-to-table heavenly fruit and the creation of the the famous guacamole and other dishes. When visit our farm, you will learn the history, cultivation and distribution of hass avocado in our plantation. Starting with a walk through the nursery, then the tree formation, continuing with the transfer to a larger pot. And finally an avocado tasting at the end! The tour ends with 15 spare minutes for your enjoyment around the coffee-garden and the mountain view. Smoothie included!

My fiancé and I did this tour almost immediately after arriving in Antigua. Due to an issue with booking the trip, we started about 30 minutes late, but Jennifer made sure we got the full tour and experience, going well past our original end time. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything, and answered all our questions. The smoothie and guacamole at the end was some of the best food we have had in Guatemala. I highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting the area.

Beautiful surroundings. Lovely tour guide who took the time to answer all our questions. A great family run organic farm. Loved making guacamole and drinking the avocado smoothie at the end. It tastes great, but you will have to take the tour to discover the secret recipe to this delicious drink.

The Avocado Tour is a great - I would definitely recommend it to any person, young or old. The tour gives you great insight on how to be a successful avocado farm that strives to be organic. The family, that owns the farm, is very passionate and hardworking. It is nice to see how their hard work is making a positive difference. Support the farm and enjoy the avocado smoothies! <3

A very interesting and original tour, for two Europeans with limited knowledge about the fruit but with a hearty appetite for avocado all year long! Having only heard about the tour on our last day in Antigua we were pleasantly surprised and lucky to have been accommodated at the very last minute. Fernando (we’re assuming is the owner) was very thorough, clear and answered all our questions, making extra sure all was understood (he gave the tour in Spanish, but tour is also available in English with a number of other guides). As he has been in the business for a great many years his knowledge about organic agriculture and produce was very impressive. We very much enjoyed walking around the plantation, and a delicious free avocado smoothie afterwards! We were also taught how to make the perfect guacamole, which we then ate with some freshly baked tortillas. Very much recommended!
