    El lugar es bonito y vale la pena ya que es un lugar típico Colombiano. El Guia muy amable pero fue más como un chofer que un Guia sin embargo estuvo bien y la pasamos muy contentos . Si lo recomiendo .

    This was an amazing experience with great people. Ana was able to tell me all about the places we visited and was so friendly and easy to talk to. I opted to do the waterfall and private boat tour which I would highly recommend. At the end of the tour, our driver took us to his favorite coffee spot and I had the best coffee I’ve ever had. This was a great last day in Columbia thanks to my guide and my driver. Highly recommend.

    First, we had an all day private tour to El Penol, Guatape, and at our last minute request, they took us on a side tour of El Carmen del Vibroal. Danielle was our excellent guide speaking near perfect English and going to great trouble to find us the best restaurant while helping us with our food order explaining every item and recommending dishes according to our taste. She guided us through every site with her vast knowledge and took the time to try to understand our interests and customizing the trip to our individual wants and needs. I would highly recommend Danielle and would request her for your guided tour. Second, was the transfer back to the airport to depart. We were glad to see Marcello as our driver again and he was very prompt to pick us up at 3 am. Always helpful and excellent navigating the streets and roads on both trips. We are very pleased with the level of service and attention this company provided. We have travel all over the world and by far Daniella, Marcello and Medellin Travel had been the best ... without question.

    Fantastic experience with our guide Anna and our Driver Jaime!! Decided to add on a coffee tour at the last minute which was an excellent decision! Walk to the top of El Penol was fantastic!

    We booked this last minute because we were told not to miss Guatape while in Medellin. This was perfect advice. The rock was cool and Guatape beautiful. Ana, our guide, was fantastic. Fun, smart and helpful. I highly recommend.

    This was a wonderful day trip. We started with a coffee tour which was extremely interesting and the coffee was wonderful. We didn’t end up climbing the rock because it was too crowded but the views from the base of the rock were beautiful. We did a boat ride on the lake which was wonderful We had a fantastic lunch in town and just wandered around. It was a perfect day.
