This was an all-around perfect tour! Thanks to the great energy and very interesting explanations provided by Sandy on the way to all locations as well as on-site planning by Alejandro, we really made the most of this 10h+ day trip! The guides really bring added value to visiting Guatapé and it was an absolute pleasure sharing the journey with a cool international group of people! The bus was also very comfortable and our driver Mr Luis made it look easy even on the narrowest of roads, could not recommend this tour more! 10/10

This tour was a great guided day out of the city. Our guide, Sandy, gave great information each step of the way and really tried to make it a social experience by getting to know us. Alejandro, our guide, was so well organised and we got to each place exactly on schedule. We would recommend this tour for all coming to Medellin.

Absolutely do this day trip. You will not disappointed. We opted to walk up Piedra del Penol and the views were absolutely incredible. It's daunting, but doesn't actually take that long to get to the top, we had plenty of time to get to the top, get photos and relax, walk back down, and grab a coffee in the shops. Lunch was also really good value and really tasty, and we had plenty of free time to stroll around the gorgeous town of Guatape. Beautiful little place. Never felt rushed. Only pity was that the English Tour Guide was a bit difficult to understand.
