This tour was amazing. Andre, our guide, should run for president. He is for the people! So insightful. We were pleasantly shocked to ride a chicken bus to San Miguel (takes 5 minutes). Amazing experience. The only thing I wished I knew is the amount of walking that would be done. And walking uphill through the whole town of San Miguel to get to the coffee plantation. Wear the best, most supportive shoes you have! So much fun to discover new things I've never seen on my 5 previous trips to Antigua. Great tour guide and tour!

Had the most amazing time with Andres on this tour. This was my first time booking through Viator and I was nervous about the logistics, but everything went smoothly. Turned out to be a private tour for just a friend and I, and we both learned a ton about the coffee process from bean to cup and about food in the Antigua market. We spent a little while enjoying a cup of coffee and pan dulce with the farmer who grew the beans and met some of her family, which was a special experience not many tourists get. I felt very welcome in the community and enjoyed hanging out with Andres in the market afterward, eating great food and learning more about agriculture in Guatemala. An effortlessly great day!! There is a good bit of walking involved and you're outside for most of the tour, so be sure to wear comfortable clothes and bring a hat/sunglasses :
