This was our first time visiting Colombia. The Jardin coffee tour was the highlight of the trip. Jardin is a charming town with a beautiful old church. The visit to the coffee farm was absolutely amazing. We gained a deep appreciation for the incredible amount of work that goes into coffee growing and production. The owners of the farm were so welcoming and kind, and Oscar was the perfect guide. The scenery in the coffee region is some of the most beautiful in the world. Next time I'm in Colombia, I will definitely plan to spend more time in this area. A truly unforgettable experience.
I have been to colombia many times over the last 20 years and always wanted to visit Jardin..It was certainly worth the wait. Medillin Travels guide Wilson showed up early and was eager to show us an interesting trip to Jardin. We had great weather and the vistas along the way made the 2 hour plus drive not seem to long. The caretakers at the coffee plantation were very kind and welcoming and showed us around the coffee making process for over an hour and ended with endless feshly roasted coffee. fresh fruit from the nearby trees was a treat as well..I recommedn using Medellin Travels and if you are lucky to get Wilson as your guide it will certainly be a memorable day in the countryside of colombia..
This was a fantastic experience. My wife and I had a personalized tour to Jardin/waterfall/coffee farm. Oscar was our tour guide and he was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. His English is also excellent and he taught us some Spanish along the way as well. The trip from Medellin to Jardin is long 3 hours but the ride is scenic and the trip is well worth it. Jardin is quaint and beautiful with picturesque green hill farms and waterfalls. We had lunch in the town center and then walked throughout the town, seeing the richly painted homes/shops. We went to the large church in the town center which is worth seeing. We then proceeded to a beautiful waterfall, which involves some driving/hiking but is well worth the trip. From there we proceeded to a local coffee farmer's home Augustine and watched the process of making coffee from the coffea plant to delicious coffee. From there we returned to Medellin. The day was long 9am-7:30pm but we felt so satisfied at the end.
We thought about arranging our day in Jardin by ourselves bus, but it would have been very difficult to access the waterfall and the coffee farm. This was the most efficient way to see what Jardin has to offer and was well worth the expense.
Alex was great! He was prompt to pick me up. The tour included a few extra stops in Jardin, which was a nice surprise. Alex is very knowledgeable and has a passion for what he does. I know I will be back in Medellin and will book another tour with him. Thanks Alex for a great day!
Alex is a top notch English/Spanish Medellin born guide...very careful safe driver..extremely knowledgeable about Colombia and Medellin..very personable....new comfortable SUV...exceeded our expectations...unbelievable coffee plantation ..the drive to it is spectacular and u really get to see Medellin countryside..
I had an incredible day and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Alex was honestly the best guide I have ever met. He had an in-depth understanding of not only the coffee production process, but Colombia in general. Nothing was too much trouble and his main priority was that I had a great experience during the day.
I would highly recommend this Alex as a guide and the coffee lovers tour.
Alex is absolutely amazing! If you want the tour of your lifetime, book with Alex! He is extremely knowledgeable and wants to make sure you have the best trip possible. I have taken many tours all around the world they were good and they don't compare to the service and personalization of this tour with Alex. He picked me up on time and we headed to Jardín. On the drive he explained to me about the history of Medellín, of Colombia, and of the culture differences. We explored the city of Jardín, went to a coffee farm for a tour and lunch, and then headed to an extremely excluded waterfall for a private viewing and swim! Alex isn't just a tour guide to me, he is my friend. He has so much passion and joy for his work, and it shows! If you are in Medellín take a tour with Alex, any of them, and your life will be changed for the better! Alex, thank you for the most amazing day!
