Desde el momento de hacer la reserva hasta la finalización de nuestro Tour la atención de Pablo fue excelente. Resolvió rapidamente las dudas previas al momento de la reserva y durante el recorrido nos acompañó con su concimiento sobre la historia de Manizales y la de nuestro país. Mi familia y yo disfrutamos mucho la mañana que pasamos con Pablo, quien al final se aseguró de recomendarnos lugares para almorzar y comprar recuerdos dela ciudad. Sin duda una excelente experiencia.

Conocer y aprender sobre la historia de un lugar es increíble y gracias a Pablo pude conocer algunos lugares emblemáticos de Manizales; la explicación fue clara y él siempre fue muy amable. ¡Muchas gracias!

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.
