Depart Medellin early in the morning. Enjoy a scenic drive to the Piedra del Peñol. You’ll have 1.5 hours to climb the 742 steps to the top of the historic rock and return to the base.  If you do not want to climb to the top, there is plenty to do at the base, with many shops selling local artisanal goods and many cafés as well. Enjoy a traditional lunch at the Piedra del Peñol or along the boardwalk in Guatapé. Take a guided tour of Guatapé, and then board a boat for a cruise on the Guatapé Reservoir.

    Excellent trip. Excellent value for the price! We were lucky enough to have Sandy as our guide, who was amazing, did so much to make it informative and enjoyable for everyone. The tour was excellently organised and gives plenty of time for self exploration as well as giving helpful info about what we were seeing. I would highly reccomend & encourage everyone to take this tour. Organiser, Eleanor, driver, Alberto & guide, Sandy were all Excellent.

    Well balanced tour. Just long enough for everything and not rushed either. Guides tend to get long winded but I felt our English guide, Alejandra, kept the pace proper and us tourists not standing too long, while still sharing enough. Imo this is a must tour and I’m a travelling guru who has grown to generally dislike tours. PS: The meal is among the best I have had on a tour. But frankly, do it. Advice: Nothing wrong with the bus. Standard good coach. But it is sardine seating. 6 foot plus and you should go early and get one of the few strategic seats that offers more knee space. The only upgrade I’d suggest is investing in a more luxurious coach that sacrifices a couple rows for more knee space for everyone.

    Our experience was more than great thanks to our amazing tour guide , Mary , she was enthusiastic and willingness to help. I truly recommend to book a tour to Guatapé with her, all the activities were just as planned according to the itinerary and gave us a very comfortable time to enjoy.
