  • Great bang for your buck. Definitely get the hit chocolate at breakfast. The rock can be super crowded (at least on good Friday it was crazy). The climb is super hard, beware. Loved the tour of Guadtape and free time there was awesome. Make sure you have cash if you want to buy things. Loved it!!

  • Great experience, with great guides!

  • Great tour. Guides are enjoyable

  • Great value for price. Lots to see and do.

  • Exceptional tour! A great way to see Guatape. Tour included air conditioned coach bus, stop for breakfast, a quick visit to a small town Marinilla, hike up to El Penon with time for a refreshing drink and to kick back and enjoy the view, then off to the final stop for a delicious lunch and free time to enjoy the colorful town of Guatape. Tour departs around 830am and returns by dinnertime to Medellin. Highly recommend this tour! Incredible bang for your buck. Not to be missed!

  • This tour included so much for such a good price! We really enjoyed the guides, the food was so tasty, and we felt like we got to experience a lot! Everything was explained clearly and ran smoothly. It was a perfect, stress free day. I especially loved the time spent in the small town before reaching the rock. It felt authentic and it was such a great experience to see Colombians living their regular lives without many tourists around.

    I would suggest that the tour take a shorter boat ride/spend less time at the dock to maximize time spent taking in the beautiful town of Guatape it was a bit rushed for us.

  • Excellent value for money. You cannot go wrong with this trip. Worth every single penny and a thousand times more! Would highly recommend it: Breakfast, lunch, tours and tour guides English and Spanish, atmosphere and most of all Guatape which is simply THE most beautiful town - not to mention the rock! A steal at the price!

  • While I could have done with a shorter boat ride, you can't beat the price for what you get: transportation to and from Medellin, the opportunity to meet fellow travelers, a structured day, and breakfast and lunch. The artificial lakes around La Piedra Peñol are stunning and the climb is worth it.

  • Great value for money. The group is big but you expect that for the price - it includes breakfast and a great lunch. The guide/translator were really good and the sites were just spectacular.

  • Espectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!! El crew del Tour súper profesional, ambos chicos excelentes!!! Los nombres los he olvidado pero era la chica de pelo rojo morena ella y el chico interprete de inglés son fenomenales!!! Me encantó!1 Tour de Guatapé son excelentes altamente recomendado!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
