This tour is all about visiting El Peñol, a rock in Guatapé with an amazing view. To get to El Peñol, Tours Guatapé will take you to several villages on the way over there. There were two tour guides, one that speaks Spanish and the other one translates everything to English. Since we do not speak Spanish very well, we... More

If I would have known that it is quite easy to go there on your own, I think I would have been better off. The tour took 12h and we stopped in 2 cities..in my opinion not really worth the price. Also the lunch we had was not exceptional and also not a lot in terms of quantity. I would... More

Joined the tour on Sunday. First of all, the tour costs less than US$25 for the entire day, including breakfast and lunch. I don't speak any Spanish, so it is a plus for the tour to have an English speaking guide on top of the Spanish speaking guide. We stopped by at a restaurant for breakfast for a simple breakfast...

It really depends on what you are looking for but in our view, the entire trip before we got to the rock was a complete waste of our time. We were told to be at the park no later than 7.30am because the bus was leaving then. The bus left at 7.55am or 10mins after schedule due to the decision... More

Tried to boo this a week in advance through what I guess was a broker. That was not easy and decided we will figure it out ourselves when we get to Medellin. We called the Tour directly the night before and made a reservation without any issues. Bus picks you up at the Park at 7:45 About 1 hour and... More

The town is small and touristic. It has a nice Colombian feeling. It is by the lake. There are many nice streets to walk around. There are colorful houses. What a lovely place to stop.

Great tour for myself and another buddy. We speak little Spanish and opted for the English translator. Our guy Nicolas was outstanding! We felt like he really loved his country and was thrilled to tell us about it. The tour lasts every bit of 12 hours but take into account that it's a 2 hour ride each way. The air... More

Guatape tour is a must if you are in visiting Medellin. This tour was informative, visited three towns, breakfast, lunch, boat ride and of course visited the rock. It's long starts at 7:45am - 7PM. Absolutely ridiculous value. A MUST DO!!

We really wanted to climb the rock in guatape and this was the cheapest option however, it was a full 12hour tour! Breakfast and lunch were included but we made unnecessary stops at two towns before we climbed the rock. there was two tour guides one speaking Spanish and then an English translator straight after, which we found tedious to...
