We had an awesome time on this tour. It was a total of 6 hours; 4 bird-watching and 2 at the coffee bean farm. Highly recommend!

Spent an awesome morning with Juan who was very knowledgeable about all the Colombian birds (and also knew lots about plants too!). The weather was really nice which definitely helped our luck - heads up that Salento is quite a rainy place and I think that would impact what you saw so check the forecast before booking if you can! We were delighted to see a hummingbird within the first 5 minutes and we also got to see a female andean cock of the rock! Thanks to Juan knowing where she was nesting. Juan also managed to spot a spectacled owl nestled deep within the trees which was awesome. Overall a great day. Maybe consider packing swimming stuff in case you get the chance to swim in the Santa Rita waterfalls!
Knocked a star off as it was the most expensive thing we did in Colombia by a really big margin! I've paid a similar amount for a similar tour in Extremadura in Spain so it could just be that this is what it costs but it just felt a little incongruous with everything else we did (coffee tours, a three day trek which cost a tenth of one we did in Chile, thermal springs, etc). But absolutely no disrespect intended to Juan's wonderful bird expertise and good sense of humour 😊

We loved this trip. Ivan was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and very good at pointing out the birds to us. We saw approximately 35 different birds and had a wonderful walk round Salento too.

We went on the Yellow-eared parrot tour (not on Tripadviser, but the Advistando Aves Andina website) that went to Carbónera. Awesome experience. We saw a lot of fascinating and beautiful birds with the easily usable equipment that was great for my friend with little experience with binoculars. Our guide, Ivan, was fantastic. Clearly loves his job and sharing his passion for birds with the people on the tour. Our driver Jorge was also great with driving the Willy. I recommend standing when in the back of the Willy and getting close to Carbónera. It’s just like being on a roller coaster, but with better scenery and you feel very safe with Jorge driving. The breakfast and lunch at the finca was delicious—even the vegetarian option—and can’t beat the scenery there. Just make sure to bring a wind breaker or jacket/sweater because it can be chilly up there with the wind. This tour was definitely the highlight of our two-week Colombia trip!

One of my favorite experiences on our trip to the coffee region! We had a wonderful morning in Santa Rita with John, who helped two beginners see nearly 80 species. He knew the answer to every question I could think of, about the specific species as well as the ecology of the area — and lots more I would have never thought to ask about! He was also great company for a half-day excursion. The hike itself was also enjoyable and we took a quick dip in the waterfall. The team that puts together this tour is very active in conservation efforts and their enthusiasm is infectious. Highly recommended!
