“Jardin Tour With Waterfall & Coffee Farm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Cannot say enough about how fantastic my experience with this tour was. Andres was super professional, informative, and kind. Did the horse-back riding in and around Jardin and had a blast. They even let you customize to do what you want. This is the experience you are looking for!

“Awesome tour, great insights and fun lots of fun stories.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We only had 1 day to discover what makes Colombia special and Andres made the most of it. We had planned to take one of his Medellin walking tours, but he took the time to talk with us and learn about our interests. As a result he suggested a different adventure where we visited a beautiful coffee plantation and then went on a fantastic zip line ride in the mountains. Our entire day was well planned and you could tell that Andres put great care in the route we drove and each spot that we stopped to experience. The food he found for us was delicious and he even accommodated a vegetarian in our group.

I would totally recommend his services. He gave us a great Colombian experience!

“Awesome Medellin Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

My wife and I were passing through Medellin and only had about five hours to spend. We really had just hoped to get a quick look at the city since we were there. Even though we were on a very short time frame, this turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip in Colombia. Andres picked us up at the bus terminal (Terminal del Sur) and gave us an amazing tour of the city, and he KNOWS this city and Colombia too, every nook and cranny. It would not have mattered if we had a month to spend in Medellin, we would not have absorbed as much about the history, culture, people, etc. as we did in our short tour. He constantly gets feedback from you to make sure that you are getting an experience that is tailored to you. For example, when I expressed a desire to buy a hat, he took us to the best hat shop in Medellin. When we were finished, Andres drove us to the airport. We hope to return to Colombia soon and use Andres' service to experience other parts of Colombia. It is also worth noting that in addition to being an amazing guide, Andres, like most Colombians we met, is a very kind person. If your Spanish is weak (like ours), Andres also speaks flawless English. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

“Awesome tours Medellin, Jardin and Concordia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Let's start by saying that our guide Andres is THE BEST! Everything I have read in the reviews before we choose his services has been spot on.
We combined the Medellin City tour, horseback riding around Jardin and visiting a coffee farm in Concordia in a 2 full days tour, including a stay over in the pueblo Jardin.
The city (8:00am) tour included a lot of Medellin's landmarks like the Parque de los pies Descalzos, Parque Botero and Parque Biblioteca España. For this last one we got to ride the Metro system from Parque Berrío to Acevedo and than took the Metro Cable up the hills to Santo Domingo. After this tour of about 5 hours Andres brought us back to our apartment to get get hour stay-over stuff so we could start the journey towards Jardin.
During this 3+ hours ride Andres told us a lot about places we were driving through. We stopped for a very nice lunch in La Mayoría. The stay in Jardin was very nice. The next morning we started early (7:30) with b'fast and went for a 20min drive towards the farm where we we would get our horses. The horseback riding was AWESOME! We got to experience the nature of Jardin. We also got to hike towards a waterfall, it took a lot of energy but it sure was worth it.
The visit to the coffee farm in Concordia was actually unplanned. But since we finished somewhat early in Jardin, Andres offered this detour for a little extra fee we couldn't refuse. At the farm we drove around the farm land in the back of a truck. We got to see how they harvested the coffee beans and the whole process up to the green coffee. They also had a small roasting installation and we got to buy some ready to use grounded coffee.
We reached back Medellin at around 20:00 on the second day. Thanks to Andres we could even do our groceries before being dropped back at our appartment.
THANX AGAIN ANDRES!! Looking forward to the pending next tour El Peñol/Guatapé.

“Great Adventures with Andres!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Hi All,
My sister and I went on a tour of Guatapa outside of Medellin with Andres it was a great experience. Andres was so full of knowledge about the cities that we went to that day and the culture. He made visiting and touring around very easy and comfortable. We were able to climb to the top of the rock in Guatapa which was 740 steps of pure scenic pleasure. Then he gave us a tour of the town and had a great local lunch around the area. Very pleased with the attention to detail that Andres gave to everything that he did. Would do it all over again. Thanks Andres for a memorable time in Medellin and Guatapa :)
