La mejor experiencia que he tenido en un viaje, desde el momento en el que reservé hasta el momento en el que partí . Todos fueron muy amables y atentos , me hicieron sentir como en casa. El dueño Sergio siempre muy interesado en cuanto a mis necesidades, el conductor Oscar siempre atento y con una sonrisa , hasta la guía Ginna que tenía todo el conocimiento ,todas la ganas y alegría de enseñarnos y compartir todo lo hermoso que tiene para dar Colombia . Una ves más gracias por la gran experiencia y por el maravilloso recuerdo que me llevo de ese hermoso país . Michelle

The overall experience was great, fully packed day, very organised, our guide Ginna was lovely. The only small disappointment (or improvement point), if you want to search for it, was the food. Lunch was nothing special, breakfast was mediocre. But than again, you are not going on this trip to fine dine, and there are enough calories through out the day to keep you going. Recommended trip, very nice full day activity and city escape. Go for it!

This tour to Guatapé was amazing!!! You have plenty of time to take photos and appreciate everything. Ginna is the best tour guide!!! She explained everything in Spanish and English and even cooked typical Colombian food for all of us. Definitely, I would book another tour with her.

Simplemente valió la pena el tour! Excelente la información brindada sin ser abrumadora, el viaje sobre el lago de Guatape fue muy agradable y seguro, definitivamente lo volvería a repetir

it was super great, very perfectly organized, everything was on point. Food was fantastic. Marlon did a tremendous job entertaining us and interacting with us. Highly recommend
