    Me and my daughter were picked by a guide at the hotel exactly as agreed. We had a good day expanding our knowledge about the visited location thanks to our guide.

    It was a great experience. El penol was worth the 700 steps as the view from the top is spectacular. Guatape is the most beautiful town I have seen ever. The guide knowledge was very good and she and the driver went out of their way to assist us.

    Fantastic tour with very friendly and informative guide. Cannot recommend this tour enough--it was one of my favorite parts of my 10 days in Colombia.

    This was a great tour! Alex, the owner of Medellín tours was great! He knows the shortcuts and the locals so he can bring it all together nicely! He has a great wealth of knowledge and he is very friendly. Would highly recommend this tour with his business.

    The private tour of El Penol, Guatape and the waterfall was fantastic. Lina, who started the tour company, met me right on time and was a phenomenal guide. She is smart, knowledgeable about the history, culture, people and landscape of Medellin and the places we visited and was fun to talk to throughout the day. The locations were beautiful and the history and stories about them were fascinating. I highly recommend this tour.

    If you take only one tour during your visit to Colombia, this should be the one!! El Peñol and Guatapé was the second tour we took with Lina from Medellin Travels, and once again she did not let us down! We left in the morning, stopping for local pan de queso along the way. We got to El Peñol, where she gave us lots of time to climb the rock and enjoy the view along the way. At the top we relaxed for a bit, took lots of photos, and had a drink and a paleta before climbing back down. Then we headed into beautiful Guatapé for a traditional lunch at an amazing restaurant and a little bit of walking and shopping around town. Overall, this tour was absolutely wonderful and should not be missed!

    Fantastic tour and excellent personal service provided throughout.

    I am late making this review as I thought it had been submitted!

    Taken in May and from the beginning was a fantastic experience, with full personal service on this private tour. Pickup from the hotel was prompt and my driver/guide Alexwas superb. This tour is highly recommended for personal service throughout the day, from start to finish.
