What You Can Expect
Appreciate the monolithic magnificence of the rock before beginning your strenuous journey up more than 700 steps; reach the summit, which stands at 7,000 feet (2,100 meters) above sea level and reward your hard work with the exquisite views. Gaze at the vibrant and verdant islands that decorate the deep blue lake, capturing the unearthly landscape on camera.
Return to land and refuel with a delicious Colombian lunch (own expense) before taking to the shimmering surface of the Guatapé Lake for an idyllic boat ride; cruise Colombia’s largest lake and observe the landscape for fascinating flora and fauna. After the sail, return to your minivan and enjoy a relaxing journey back to Medellin.
This tour was amazing!
This tour was absolutely fantastic! I am a 20 something who usually travels solo and usually hates doing tours. This day trip was an amazing exception! My guide, Camilo, was interesting, listened well and was very helpful. I would absolutely recommend this tour to others and plan on booking with the same company next time I come to Colombia. 5 Star experience!
Fantastic trip with an outstanding, English speaking guide who taught us a great deal. This set a high standard for the rest of your trips. Just one thing, when we returned to the hotel and read the itinerary, we should have had a boat trip included....

Excellent trip. Our driver/guide picked us up at our hotel at 9am, stopping along the way for a regional take on arepas (included). Then to the replica of the old El Penon town (before it was flooded) and a view of the lake. Next, up to La Piedra del Peñol and the rough, but rewarding, climb up. This was followed by our tour of the beautiful village of Guatape and an hour's boat ride before the drive back. Guide was excellent as well--personable and informative. Certainly a highlight of our Colombia trip.
This was a great trip. Views at Guatapé were superb, and we loved the climb. Had a great lunch in a picture perfect colonial town on the lakes. Camilo was a wonderful host for our family trip. We would highly recommend him to other travelers! He knew his history, he was very proud of his country and its accomplishments, and he had a great sense of humor -- all this kept our family, including our early 20s young adult children entertained!
Jose was a great tour guide! Beautiful town - recommended!
Nicely run tour from Medellin. Tour guides were on time, courteous, and allowed met set the pace for the activities. Sights were nice and the tour guide had a good knowledge of the area and could accommodate english for me.
