This tour is everything a perfect tour should be: informative, fun, and engaging! Our guide Yander was amazing! He was positive, friendly, respectful and his love for Medellín was apparent. 80% of the tour is on a bike path which made me comfortable. I highly suggest the E-bike if you get tired easily pedaling on a regular bike. Fortunately our guide was patient with us considering we hadn’t rode a bike in years. We are grateful to have explored a beautiful city full of life, energy, and amazing food!! Thank you Yander for your time and patience!! Muchas Gracia Green bike tour!!!

we really enjoyed the tour, Mateo was our guide he was very knowledgeable & explained the process of making coffee, what makes a good coffee, best practices for buying & preparing coffee. the lunch was also good, quite tasty & filling.

Carlos Valle is such an exceptional teacher and coffee guru. Not only he was punctual and professional - his finca and the way he teaches coffee to the general public is worth of filming a documentary series.

Tour guide was excellent and told us the story of every place we visited. Patient and helped us take all the pictures we wanted.

Great Tour with a great Guide (he speaks excellent English)
