We had a wonderful time with our guide Arturo who is knowledgeable, professional and fun. Learning the intricacies of coffee production and "cupping" was really an eye-opener, and we highly recommend this tour and Arturo as an expert in all things coffee!

Laura was a really nice, knowledgeable and personable tour guide, who led us from the entrance sign of Boquete all the way through (mainly) picturesque back roads to a waterfall, coffee plantation, and other sites all the while sampling the local snacks & drinks. Nice e-bike that offered good exercise but didn't wear us out.
