Sustainable Tourism Bogotá
This tour combines two unique experiences into one, allowing you an immersion into the real lives of Colombian coffee and cocoa farmers. Learn how to produce coffee and chocolate the artisanal way as you participate in the process from start to finish, play a traditional game of tejo and enjoy a refreshing dip in natural river pools. Abundant natural landscapes await!

"Andres was so amazing and patient answering all questions that our little curious group had about Bogota, coffee, people, culture, history and the towns. The trip included all the elements one would want - learning, fun, meeting the locals, home-cooked meal, playing a game, sipping and making coffee from scratch. We went around towns and drank some amazing local fruit juice as well. For those who are interested in exploring the remote towns of Bogota and knowing the coffee farmers this is the best choice. I can say hands down that this tour in Bogota with the group and Andes was one of the most memorable days I had in Colombia. Sipping coffee, staring at the mountains, watching the hummingbirds, playing with the local kids and talking to the innocent farmers. It was serene and lovely!" - Prathibha
