Pablo is great and his tours are super interesting. He's a geologist, specialised in volcanos, so he is the person you want to talk with in Manizales! Absolutely recommended it!

Pablo is an excellent tour guide. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about the city and volcanoes. He matched the pace of the walk and hike to our abilities. We did both of his tours.
