What to Expect
Meet your private guide at your hotel in Medellín at 9 a.m. and hop into an air-conditioned car to start your tour. With just your guide and your private party, drive two hours to reach El Peñol, a well-known boulder with a great view of the surrounding area. Throughout the ride, listen to commentary about the history and culture of the area from your guide.

Upon arrival, climb the 700 steps to the top of the boulder with your guide, who will entertain and inform you the entire trip. After admiring the view, come back down to tour the town of Guatape and eat lunch on the waterfront (own expense). You can optionally ride a boat around the lake, depending on time.

Pass through a number of small towns before returning to your hotel at roughly 4:45 p.m., or later for passengers who choose the waterfall option.
