We had the time of our lives on consecutive days touring Guatape (with Alejandro) and a coffee farm in Concordia (with Andres). They provided everything you would want in a tour company: reliable, knowledgeable, friendly tours with comfortable and safe transit. We are a family of four (12 and 19 year old sons) who have visited Colombia several times but this was our first trip to Medellin. The Guatape trip cannot be missed. This was a full day trip in a spacious van with 12 total passengers, about an hour and half each way, but the time flew thanks to Alejandro’s discussion of the fascinating history of the region. The climb to the top of Guatape is vigorous, especially given the altitude, but the stairs are concrete and manageable, and if you really can’t make it, you can easily turn back and the view from even half way up is worth the trip. The next day we toured with just our family and Andres, visiting a coffee farm, learning about the process from growing to picking to roasting to marketing. Both days, the experience was equally fun and enlightening for all members of our family. You can be 100% certain that you are in good hands with these guys. They are organized, educated, patient and fun. The driving was very safe, and the time in the car was generally spent informally discussing everything from Colombian New Years customs, to the politics of the peace accord, to the birds and trees along the way. I miss these guys. I’d rate LandVenture a 6 out of 5 if I could.
