The tour was amazing, our tour guide Oscar was really knowledgeable about the places we visited, and kept informing us the next activity. Coffee plantation was interesting, we learnt much about coffee and tasted it, too. Volcano is breathtaking. The garden and the waterfalls are worth visiting, you can see lots of animals, too. Buffet style lunch was delicious. I would recommend this tour for everybody! You can enjoy all activities without rush in one day!
