Recomiendo a Pablo totalmente. El tiene todos los detalles y curiosidades de cada tour. Fue a dos con el y Pablo ha sido muy amable, educado, entregado y entusiasta. Agradezco muchísimo cada explicación de los pueblos que me llevó, el cacao, café y vinos. Muy muy interesante. Lo mejor es poder conocer la zona con un local que ademas es historiador

Pablo's tour was excellent in giving us an authentic view of the local villages and the production of cocoa and vino. He had a lot of great knowledge about the places we visited. It was also fun to ride the chicken buses with someone who was familiar with them.

We loved Pablo!!! The tour was three hours but it flew by. We did three official stops, a winery, a chocolate factory and a jade museum and learned some history on some walks in between. It was nice to get out of the busy city and go off the beaten path. We made some good purchases but didn't feel obligated to buy anything. Pablo was super friendly and he shared a lot of history with us. We feel like we made a new local friend! It was a fun experience riding the chicken buses as well.
