Amazing full day tour! Gracias Mateo y Verónica, todo fue perfecto! This trip is 100% worth it, the town and the viewpoint are beautiful, breakfast and lunch were great, and I had a fantastic time. I can’t imagine coming to Medellín and not going to Guatapé. If you’re choosing between tours you can’t go wrong with this one! 5 starts ⭐️ (warning that the bus is super cold!)

Great tour. They picked us up on time, it was a large group but Mateo and Christian were great guides and guide is through the day, Penol and Guadape were beautiful.

Best trip in Colombia
Georgia_L
, May 2022
Probably one of the best day trips we did during our stay in Colombia! Our guide was called Mateo, he was so friendly, knowledgeable and spoke very good English (the tour was in Spanish and English so he explained everything twice). We first stopped for breakfast, then visited the rock, then the town of Guatape, then lunch, then in the afternoon we took the boat across the river and got to see one of pablo escobars burnt down mansions. The trip was so well organised and we got a lot of free time to just wonder and explore on our own with clear meet up times etc. The 2 meals included were very tasty- a traditional Colombian breakfast and lunch! Mateo even gave us all a Colombian bracelet on the way home, he really made it special! Definitely recommend this tour- was also one of the cheaper ones we saw!

Georgia, thank you for taking the time to leave us your review, and tell us your pleasant experience, we love to know that Mateo, made everything work very well, we can only thank you for having trusted us, and give us the opportunity to move forward with our work, greetings.

Amazing value and Experience
Devron_G

First we board the bus to get breakfast at this streetside restaurant: a simple paisa breakfast with scrambled eggs, bread, arepa and hot cocoa. Then we get to the rock Be ready for that climb it's definitely a workout; bring bug spray because at the top of the lookout some vicious bloodsucking bugs will attack you. Amazing views though. The base of the rock has restaurants and bars; have cash for the restrooms. Then we head to Guatape; beautiful town with colourful umbrellas and houses. Great for pictures; lunch is here with three protein choices. Then its on to Penol replica with a nice church for pictures and great country side scenery. Then we boarded a double decker boat for a river tour passing even Escobar's burned our Finca. The whole trip is amazing and well worth it just have water, comfortable shoes and dress for the day of cardio. PS. The AC has to remain on in the bus so have a pull over or jacket handy... Also: pay attention to the departure times for the bus during the various stops and save the tour guides cell number just in case you're late you run the risk of being left behind.
