Excellent tour!
Steven_B, Mar 2022
A complete day with a very informative guide- a delicious lunch, we asked to skip breakfast. Plenty of time to experience the Rock and the beautiful towns by the lake. Best part of our trip to Colombia so far!

Private tour of Guatape
Dan_L, Feb 2022
Hector is a very knowledgeable and easy-going guide. He made us feel comfortable almost immediately and made our tour of the beautiful town of Guatape and the lake totally memorable. We recommend this tour and Hector to anyone coming to Medellin. We did the one day tour, but wish we had stayed over for a night. Guatape is just beautiful and so peaceful. Definitely a must-do side trip. One advice is to avoid doing this tour on a Sunday as the traffic becomes very heavy with many locals traveling out of the city. If you must do it on a Sunday, leave your hotel early (7 am or before) to avoid some of the rush. Hector explained this to us as we had to do the tour on a Sunday, so we started early and escaped some of the logjam.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Dan, thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us. I am very happy to know that our staff made this tour pleasant and enjoyable. Best regards from Viaja Medellin.

Guatape Day Trip
Sarah_I, Mar 2022
Me and my wife did the private tour and absolutely loved it. You start off with breakfast on the way, the drive itself is beautiful. The first stop is the old town and a boat tour that takes you out onto the lake. You cruise by Pablo Escobar’s old abandoned mansion and some other really nice waterfront properties. The next stop is the Piedra del Penol which was pretty busy even on a weekday. The staircase was under renovation so there was a long wait to get up. The views from the top are incredible. Then you stop for lunch at the new guatape town at a nice local restaurant. We got bendeja paisa and it was really good. After that we walked around for a bit and then drove back to Medellin. The nice thing about it being private is that you are on your own schedule. The tour was approx 10 hours for us. Mateo our tour guide was excellent and we hope you get him!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Sarah, for our team is very gratifying to read your comment, it really fills us with emotion to know that our guide Mateo did an excellent job, we can only say thank you for trusting us, for allowing us to continue growing, we hope to see you next time, greetings Viaja Medellin.
Beautiful and amazing!

Fun day trip from Medellin
David_C, Feb 2022
We took a private day trip from Medellin to Guatape. Our tour guide, Hector, provided interesting background on Penol (the city and rock) and Guatape. We took a small boat tour around the lake and visited a small replica of the Penol town before it was flooded. In retrospect, we would rather have stayed longer in Guatape (overnight) as it was a very cool town with vibrant colors, restaurants and shopping.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
David, Thank you for leaving us your comments, your opinion is really important to us, it allows us to continue with our work, that of our guides and drivers, we hope to have you back soon, we send you a big hug, Viaja Medellin.

An excellent day with an expert guide!
Daria_F, Feb 2022
Hector was an absolutely fantastic guide. He offered a unique experience, telling us not only regional history but elaborating on his experiences in Colombia throughout various periods of history. He was an excellent conversationalist in both English and Spanish and knew the best places to eat along the way. I highly recommend spending a day with Hector during your stay in Medellín.

We loved every minute of this day trip. Guatape is a beautiful town, el penol has the most amazing views and the boat trip was a great way to relax and see the stunning scenery from the water. Luiz was an absolutely brilliant tour guide. He made sure we were a step ahead of the crowd at each stop. We enjoyed this tour so much and recommend it as a must do when in Medellin!
