This was a bucket list of ours and were so thankful that Alex was our guide. He made it funny and enjoyable. We learned a lot about coffee.
The Don Juan coffee tour was great. Our guide Grevin (sp?) was fantastic. He was very funny and knowledgeable on the coffee and chocolate processes. We got to see each step of the process from the planting of the seed to the roasting and making of the coffee. This also was a beautiful place. We learned so much as well.
since this was a coffee, sugar cane and chocolate in one, it was a bit repetitive from the earlier tours, but still good!
Tour was excellent and very interesting.
Really delightfully surprised by this tour and have no negatives, except the sardine packed van. Nice shop for souvenirs and gifts, especially the coffee and chocolate. The driver was willing to drop us off at a different location than our hotel, where we could explore a little on our own. We had a great lunch and enjoyed visiting CASEM and supporting the local artists.
The Don Juan coffee, sugar cane, and cocoa tour was informative and delicious. The guide was very knowledgeable. I had, perhaps, the best coffee I’ve ever tasted!
Chocolate was delicious. Very knowledgeable and entertaining guide!!
My mother-in-law did not go on the tours that involved at lot of walking but she was well able to do the chocolate, coffee and spice tours and I know she enjoyed them very much.
My wife and I were the only people booked this morning, so we got a personal tour. The tour guide, Valerie, did an excellent job of explaining the process for making coffee, cocoa and sugar cane. She spoke excellent English.
Thought this was going to be the boring activity -- get a quick tour then a lot of sampling while they tried to sell their product. NOT the case. Very good guide (Allison) and it turned out to be on par with the zip line and spelunking.
Would have liked more detail about different ways that the coffee is treated
Honestly I thought this tour would be a bit hokey and kind of a repeat of what we learned when we toured a coffee plantation on Kauai a few years ago. There the experience was about the growing cycle, a hike and tasting a ton of great blends. This tour was all about the process from sprout to roast to cup and added in a great deal about growing different kinds of fruit, sugarcane and chocolate and processing those as well. The tour had a good variety, we got to ride in a traditional ox cart AND meet the actual Don Juan and get some pictures with him. We had a great time and learned a lot and were glad we had included this tour on our itinerary.
We enjoyed this tour. the mix of information and history on the production of coffee and chocolate was really fun. the guide did a great job (turns out it was his first tour, which we discovered at the end), but he was very fun and personable.
Lots of great information and samples. I'm still eating the marvelous chocolate!
This was actually turned out to be a coffee, chocolate and sugar cane tour. A little commercialized at the start and the chocolate tour in Monteverde was a better but we did learn a lot and enjoyed it.
Unfortunately the least exciting bit of our holiday. The guide warmed up towards the end but seemed a bit uninterested at first. Wouldn’t have minded not doing this in the end.
I learned a lot on this tour!
Excellent tour and great coffee
Would have been better during coffee harvesting season, but learned a lot regarding coffee, chocolate, and sugar cane.
The guide spoke to fast, rattled off the info in a memorized, mechanical way and did not engage us.
Info and samples was great!
Thought we would actually get to see coffee fields not just the after picking process.
I thought it included a visit to working coffee plantation, but the guide was super funny, overall good experience.
Interesting information. I could have used more time.
Guide explained and demonstrated the coffee, sugar cane and chocolate process very well
We were fortunate to have both a fun and knowledgeable guide combined with a fun and interesting tour group. Our most enjoyable tour.
Even though slatted as a coffee, chocolate and sugar cane tour, this tour was more focused on the coffee aspect. Did the chocolate tour at Arenal and was glad we'd done both.
Very very nice experience.
Very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Loved the tour!
This was one of my favorite tours. Very knowledgeable staff. Lots of snacks along the way and we got to meet Don Juan
"Kristal" did a top notch job with our tour. We all loved her...she engaged everyone! Loved meeting Señor Juan.
Great info and guide. Learned a lot about coffee and coco. Beautiful place as well.
Very fun and a good change of pace.
We loved the coffee tour (also toured the sugar cane and chocolate sections). Again, it was just us and the tour guide. The guide was amazing, very informative, energetic, and very interactive, but this may have been because there were only 2 of us. I would definitely recommend doing this tour earlier rather than later in the day.
This tour was absolutely fabulous and I would recommend it highly. We had the tour guide to ourselves and he was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. I learned so much about coffee and chocolate and sugar cane!!!
Chocolate we also included in this tour. Would be good to include this in your promotional materials. As usual, the guide was fantastic - very knowledgeable.
Enjoyed it greatly!
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was great and knowledgeable. We loved it!
Great tour and we got to meet 'Don Juan'!
Tour guide was excellent . Knowledgeable, great sense of humor. Tour exceeded my expectation.
love that it is a small plantation, not a huge corporation and completely organic - should be advertised more this way!
Way exceeded expectations. Simply outstanding. Our guide Hairo was great!
Fun tour. Great coffee.
Special Thanks to this tour Guide:)
