The tour started with fresh fruit and an overview of the history of the farm. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised that this was a whole-farm tour. We got to see and learn about chickens, goats, pigs, banana trees, vegetable and herb gardeners, and more. We also saw a number of cool technological innovations, including a... More

My husband and I visited this coffee farm in San Luis, about a half hour ride from Santa Elena. Our tour guide was very personable. Half the tour involved his showing us how they have made their farm a sustainable operation-using goats, fish, and pigs for fertilizer. The pigs are also used for methane gas. We toured the vegetable garden... More

I decided to go for this tour as this sounded like a much more intimate small group experince compared to the big tours. I dislike big groups as often there are one or two smart or too inquisitive ones who ruin other people's experinces. We had ten people in our group. Costs 30 Dollars per head. They will pick you...

We went on this tour because we really love coffee and are also interested in agriculture. I'm not sure if someone would enjoy the tour if they aren't big coffee drinkers as it's very detailed. The guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. The coffee tasting at the end of the tour was very nice to enjoy the different types of... More

We had a great time visiting this coffee plantation. The kids didn't want to go thought it was going to be boring, but it was so educating and they explained so much of what they do to help the environment that my kids were impressed and really loved the tour. Tasted some great coffee and ended up buying some. Can't... More

I signed up for a tour here because I really wanted to see a farm that was all about coffee - not including chocolate or sugar as some other tours in town. I was not disappointed! The tour lasted about 3 hours and our guide really took the time to educate us on how coffee is produced from the inception... More

This was a great way to see a small plantation. We were picked up at our hotel by the cafe monteverde folks, and we and 8 others enjoyed a small tour of the plantation that concluded with tasting many of the varieties of coffees that they had on offer. We also got to taste the coffee beans before they are... More

My two sons and I booked a tour at the Center in Monteverde next to the CASEM and the WholeFoods. We were picked up where we were staying and driven to the farm outside of Santa Elena. Our visit was very informative and enjoyable. The tour took about two hours as we walked around the farm with one of the... More
