After seeing the price at other tour companies in town, 70$ per person, I sought out other options. My wife and I took the tour of Selva Negra and it was great at, 20$, per person. The tour guide Hines the property intimately and had answers for every question I could think of. Also the time of the tour was perfect at about 3 hrs. I don't see what more I could have learned at that point. There was a tasting and a walk through of the entire coffee making process. They also offer bird watching, nature, and farm walks. I would highly recommend this option over using a tour group.
