Traveler Tips

El Peñol is an amazing attraction, don't be put off by the stairs because there are cold drinks waiting at the top.
Great tour - really good value for money you see quiet a few things, breakfast and lunch is included and you get plenty of time to take pictures.
El Penol costs 20,000 cop extra to climb to the top.

Amazing and well organized day trip to Guatape!
Vanessa_B, Sep 2022
Great day trip to Guatape! Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who has limited time in Medellin and wants to be able to see Guatape and the surrounding area. Our guides - Sergio and Maria were amazing, warm, funny and caring. They made the experience that much better. Even though the day was long, it was well organized, great value for money and the lunch we had was great! All in all it was a great day :)

An experience
Diana_T, Sep 2022
It was a full day tour...literally. Was happy to climb all 708 stairs I believe. The view was fantastic. Lunch was amazing and the walking tour was interesting. It was really hard to follow and immerse myself though because I could barely understand my tour guide. He was trying so hard to speak english but the accent was just too hard. The tour ended with a nice boat ride. I would recommend this tour.
Best trip to guatape
Nikki_K, Sep 2022
Sandy, Mario, y David were amazing hosts for an equally amazing trip! The value was insane - between climbing the rock, the lunch, boat time, and the town, it was a full day. I had my favorite lunch of my trip so far on this tour and I'm vegetarian. Everything ran on schedule thanks to our guides, pickups were easy, and we fit everything in. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic value! Highly...
Clarice_B, Sep 2022
Fantastic value! Highly recommend! It was like 3 tours for the price of one - the rock at guatape, the cruise and the town itself. Gorgeous sites!
Love It!
Natasha_L, Sep 2022
Such a great time with amazing tour guides! I'd def recommend this tour to friends and other solo travelers. The bus arrived on time, the guides were very friendly/helpful, Guatape was beautiful (of course), and it felt like ViaTor was really trying to give us a feel for the small town. I don't have any complaints really but two suggestions: 1. I think a handout (digital or physical) to go along with the walking portion of the tour would be great. Or maybe something giving more history on the town. 2. I would have liked the walking portion of the tour to be longer. Maybe only me but I really wanted to learn more about the history and the community. Besides that, this tour was chef's kiss!
Alejandro_M, Sep 2022
It was an amazing tour our travel guide Sandy and Elena were the perfecto match for this experience. They were super polite and gave us all the details needed to have the best experience.
Unmissable day trip with an excellent tour company!
Lauren_D, Sep 2022
We were hesitant to do a trip to Guatape because we only had three days in Medellin and this takes a full day. We had heard from friends that this is an unmissable experience. And we had no regrets at all - this was totally worth it! The tour company was so so organized and professional - it was a really good mix of a guided tour experience (history on the bus, walking tour of the Pueblo) and free time to do your own thing. My tour was basically all Americans and Alejandra’s English tour was perfect. Angie and Mr. Javier also did an amazing job keeping everything organized! Not to mention the value for money - you can’t beat this price. All in all, we usually don’t go for tours like this, but I would highly recommend this one while you’re in MED.
Challenging Climb with Spectacular Views
Rita_W, Sep 2022
We loved the beautiful countryside and lake. The walk to the top of Peñol was challenging but the view was worth it. Our English speaking tour guide Sandy was awesome, funny and friendly. Our tour organizer Sandra made the day go smoothly. And Luis our driver was efficient and safe. Our lunch had variety, including traditional was tasty and served promptly. It was nice seeing Colombian countryside outside the city of Medellin to enjoy a different perspective.
Entertaining, relaxing, and informative.
Timothy_F, Aug 2022
The tour was a lot of fun, and very informative. Sandra and Sandy (with a "y") were excellent tour guides. The entire day was well planned and full of activity. A nice pleasant drive through the mountains, an exhilarating climb up the mountain, a pleasant lunch, relaxing boat ride, and instructional walk through Guatape made for a very full day.
Great tour for a very affordable price.
Izabela_B, Aug 2022
Both of the guides were great. They spoke very good English, were friendly, and energetic. The only thing I wish was a little different would be to have more time to explore the town of Guatape.
Guapate is AMAZING!
Chris_P, Aug 2022
What a beautiful place! I have been wanting to do this tour for a while and so happy that I finally did it. Our guides Alejandra and Mary were awesome and our bus driver Luis got us there and back safely. Highly recommended!!!
Amazing trip to Guatapé!
james_k, Aug 2022
Amazing trip to Guatapé!! Loved going up the giant rock and having our own time to explore the town. Didn't have to worry about anything as everything was set up for me. Sandy and Elena were amazing tour guides with great energy and Luis was an amazing driver for us. Thank you all!!

Fun full day trip
Olivia_S, Aug 2022
Fun day trip outside of Medellin. The views from el piedra del Peñon were very cool, the lunch was authentic, and the town of Guatapé was colorful and beautiful to tour. Our tour guides, Sergio and Angie, were very friendly and accommodating. The only complaint is that sitting in the back of the bus could be hard to hear the guide’s descriptions at times, but other than that, very fun!
