Maybe was my fault, but not exactly what i was expecting. photo to left shows a green house full of flowers, but did not see any on tour. Did enjoy learning about the silleteros and the history, but felt that i only saw half of the story. Still, was pleasant and informative. Guide was knowledgeable.
This tour was awesome and especially with our tour guide Elver as he was excellent. I requested an English speaking tour guide and he was great and was also very knowledgeable about the flower farm as well as many other facts and tours of the Medellin area. The farmer Senior Artistidez has been farming beautiful flowers in Santa Elena for almost 50 years and gave us a great tour of his property along with Elver who also knows a lot about them as well. The weather and the flowers were wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Elver as he is one of the best tour guides I have ever had.
This tour was great. We went from the earlier tour we had taken on the zipline adventure to a Santa Elena flower farm. The farmer did not speak English but the tour guide was a great translator. We walked through the jungle on his property and saw a lot of different kinds of flowers. We were given a glass of natural blackberry juice that was fresh squeezed from the berries harvested on his farm. I would highly recommend this tour. At the end, the tour guide stopped in a Mercado in Santa Elena that had been set up for La Feria de las Flores. We had time to walk around and shop a little bit.
