The tour costs 45.000 Pesos, excluding lunch. You get picked up at your hotel/hostal and after 25 minutes you reach the Hacienda. The place itself is quite nice. The coffee tour is ok but not worth so much money. The guide on the hacienda explains a bit about coffee and its origins, you get to drink coffee. There is no real coffee tasting, where you can actually get to taste the differences. After about an hour of talking you get shown around on the fields and you get to see the machines they use. The tour is over and you can get lunch for 12.000 Pesos. The food is very little, almost everyone on our tour was still hungry afterwards. We decided to stay overnight and the rooms are really nice, but dinner costs again 12000 Pesos and this time they cooked so little, that everyone was again hungry. Also it was just rice with a little bit of chicken. Next morning we had the breakfast which was included. It was a little bit of toast, cheese and Arepas with mantequilla. Fun thing also to know is that when you stay overnight the transport back to Manizales is not included anymore and you will be charged extra, even though you paid at least 24.000 for food, more than 30.000 for the night, 45.000 for the tour and maybe even more for some beers and souvenirs. If you just do the tour in one day the transfer back is included in the 45.000. This means:If you pay more, you get less. Awesome concept! There are plenty of other and better haciendas close to Salento. My advise: skip hacienda venecia and go somewhere else.
