Traveler Tips

A bit more time for the walk up to the top of Guatape would be better as it's not easy and you want to appreciate the views longer.

An active relaxing day
Francesca_B, Jul 2022
It was a very good excursion. Considering the amount of time , we saw a lot and I recommend everyone to visit these places - and if you’re short on time , this is the best day trip. I personally didn’t like being with such a big group on a big bus - everything slows down and becomes somewhat impersonal. Because of this size I also couldn’t hear most of the time what our guide was explaining. I loved the boat trip but didn’t appreciate the loud music (but that’s personal again because I prefer silence in nature). Maybe we could’ve had lunch on our own in Guatapé-it’s such a lovely town and I feel like we could’ve spent more time there. Overall though , it was a well organized excursion that gifted me a relaxing day as I didn’t have to plan anything- they even pick and drop off at the hotel, and breakfast and lunch are included.

Our hosts at the Guatape tour made every effort to show us the beauty of the area. We enjoyed the tour, especially the food and the boat ride. Would recommend this to our friends!

A Marvelous All-Inclusive Experience
Connie_M, Mar 2021
We saw so much in 1 day: Penol, the Rock, Guatapé, a boat ride on the lake. All with plenty of time to shop & explore. And the trip included both breakfast & lunch which were delicious. Our tour bilingual guide gave us a lot of great information & was available for any questions. The bus driver drove very safe. We had a great time & would recommend this tour to everyone.
Guatape and the peñon
Jose_P, Nov 2020
The experience was spectacular! I enjoyed so much, I loved the places, the views, and the spirit of those small towns. Also, the tour guides were fantastic! She helped me in everything she could I think her name is Juliana. I will totally recommend whoever willing to take this tour.

Julie did a phenomenal job. Despite being the only English speaking customer, she translated everything for me and ensured I was given proper information
Must do if in medellin
Matthew_B, Oct 2020
Very great. Arturo was awesome. Very kind, friendly and knowledgeable .Transportation was excellent. Tour was offered in English and even got to practice a lot of Spanish. The view from the big rock was great and guatape was beautiful little town. Got very lucky with being so few people on the tour. I would do this tour again. Very cheap price and the food included was great.
English speaking people should avoid
Arijit_S, Oct 2020
the tour was very good. Only problem is that if you are taking the English tour, there will be only one translator to translate the details shared by the guide in Spanish. Our translator was friendly, but we could understand that he was not translating all the information shared by the guide. Overall a good value for money, but english speaking people should better avoid it.
Highly revommended
Vukoslav_C, May 2020
Recommended for everyone from Medellin. Guatape rock and town are highlights but lake ctuise is also very interesting.
Great experience overall.
silvanam8, Feb 2020
Our tour guide was wonderful and spoke English perfectly. She was friendly, courteous, and shared great information about the history and the people of the area. The breakfast was good. However, lunch could have been a little bit better. I ordered chicken and it was good but my husband ordered beef and it was too tough. We still recommend this tour.
Fun filled day!
Brianna S, Jan 2020
This tour was excellent! Our guide, Juliana, was friendly and knowledgable and--best of all--very clear about what to expect in terms of our schedule, what we would see, and how long we would have at each stop. I would highly recommend this as a day trip if you are in Medellin!
Great great day
Jaime_S, Dec 2019
This was an awesome tour with one stop better than the next. Good time periods at each stop so there was enough time and not to short. The only downsize was the dropoffs. 40 people on the bus with about 25 different hotel stops. It's a long day but well well worth it.
Guatape tour
Susan_C, Oct 2019
Great tour just a bit dissapointed with the commentary. Asked for English tour and there were only 6 or 7 english speaking people out of 40 and we were given not as good a commentary as the Spanish. We understand a little spanish and the country side was explained in more detail than what was explained in english. Marlon was a good guide and his english was good but he tended to speak quiet over the microphone and we couldn't understand him alot of the time. A bit more time for the walk up to the top of Guatape would be better as it's not easy and you want to appreciate the views longer.
