What a wonderful afternoon!!! Pablo was amazing!!! From "lots" of "planning" email questions from us to him and Pablo's prompt to finally meeting Pablo and his sharing a wealth of information about Manizales. There is so much interesting history in this city! And to think, we almost didn't visit as it was not on any of the usual "must do" lists!!! We can't wait to visit Manizales again, to just have time to explore and learn more!!! We definitely wouldn't hesitate to recommend ANY tour with Pablo!!! He went out of his way to help us with anything we needed while in Manizales!!!

We also took another day with Pablo, for a paid trip to visit the Nevado del Ruiz volcano area. This was a special request from us to him!!! As Pablo is a Geologist, this day was even more amazing! As we walked along the road, we saw remains of the lava and lahar flows from the 1985 eruption (the cause of the Armero tragedy), and learned how to identify the different rock formations, etc. We learned about the origin of rivers and the importance of the Frailejones in the Paramo. If you have any interest in nature or THIS visit with Pablo is a must!!!

Pablo helped me arrange my tour with less than a days notice, and though it was raining, we still decided to go. After a short bus ride, we headed up to Chipre with its marvelous views. It stopped raining, and the rest of the tour was dry! Loved our walk and talk, perfectly timed, good combo of history and answered all my silly questions about life in Manizales. He was professional and kind. Was the perfect introduction to my visit in Manizales. I would recommend him to anyone!

I am giving one star only because unfortunately our walk with Pablo didn’t happen. He rescheduled night before from 8:00am to 9:30, and then was running late from his medical appointment. I totally understand that, but we had only one day in Menizales and did not want to spent it waiting.

Unfortunate for us because he has great reviews and we were looking forward to learn about Menizales history.

I was fortunate enough to meet Pablo of Guru talks in the city of Manizales. https:///-find-the-awesome-history-and-culture-of-beautiful-manizales-city It is not easy to find guides in Manizales but I got lucky and found Guru walks and Pablo. Our time together was in January of this year.

Besides doing city tours, Pablo is a geologist and loves nature. He does tours in the surrounding nature around Manizales. For our time together, we visited one of the biggest volcanos in Colombia, Nevada del Ruiz. It is an incredible site and over 14,000 feet in elevation. We stood exactly where the lava flow was in 1985, the last time of its eruption. The lava killed over 25,000 people within 2 hours of its eruption with the lava flowing down the valley. It was beautiful and magnificent to see.

Pablo has climbed 15 volcanos in Colombia. He climbed the Nevada also. There is a climbing route in which you start at 3:00 am, many times in the rain, with ice storms as you get to the top. Needless to say, these are not great conditions, but Pablo is used to it.

After viewing the volcano, we traveled down the mountain and completed a loop. The car ride was beautiful but, on a dirt, and bumpy road.

Pablo does all kinds of nature If this interest you, Pablo is a passionate and excellent guide.

Pablo was a great guide. We met very far from the center, but it was really important! We took the late walk at 4: and it was perfect! We watched a beautiful sunset and he explained very detailed a lot of things.

Thanks Pablo! If I come back, I will take the nature tour for sure!
