Nov 2021 • Solo
I greatly enjoyed the tour. The logistics were smooth and easy, the guides - Elizabeth and Alejandra - were wonderful, they gave plenty of information about what we were seeing and made the whole experience cheerful and relaxing. Seeing the rural communities gave me a different perspective on life in Colombia. And it goes without saying, the natural environment there is gorgeous, as can be seen on the bus ride (special thanks to señor Luis), the boat ride and of course from the top of the Rock in Guatapé which were all part of the tour. Highly recommended.

Guatape is so beautiful. The view from the top of the rock is gorgeous, and the walk through the beautiful and colorful town is absolutely a must. Our guides (Elena and Sandy) were amazing.

Excellent Value - Great Guides
Nov 2021 • Solo
First of all if you are from Western Europe, the United States, or Canada you need to be tipping the guides at least 50% +25% to the driver. The tour is bargain but doesn’t feel like it. Bus is clean new and comfortable. The guides were great. Alejandra was the English speaking guide and she was impressive at herding the group and making sure everyone was enjoying themselves. If there was one negative it would be the lunch in Guatape. They have partnered with a restaurant across the street from the boat launch so you eat then cross the street and get on the boat. But honestly you could cut lunch out and the trip would be better. The food just wasn’t good. Bring some snacks, the eat a little something at a different restaurant later when you have an hour on your own. Definitely don’t count on lunch as your meal. The trip does last 10 hours but it goes fast and it’s fun. Guides are well trained and knowledgeable. If I wanted to go to Guatape again this is how I would go!

THE BEST TOUR EVER w/ SANDY & SANDRA ‼️
This tour was amazing from start to finish Sandy & Sandra were amazing hosts who if have not received a raise definitely deserve one due to their high energy, insight on Colombia and great attitudes. They definitely catered to everyone and were extremely helpful in answering any questions we had…they were very knowledgeable in the history and culture of Guatape. Highly recommend booking with them & Tours Guatape Just prepare yourself for the 742 steps to climb at Piedra Del Penon 😂👌🏽.

The best tour from Medellin to Guatapé.
Fantastic day trip from Medellin. This is without doubt the best for company around. Affordable with excellent service. Sandy and Sandra were our excellent guides. They could not have been more helpful and informative. Everything was on time and our driver, Luis was kind and careful. Highly recommended. 5 stars!

Great tour to Guatapé
Alejandra was great. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the bus and boat. Lunch was pretty good, to be expected quality

Only negative feedback is the bus has no toilet and they do not stop for breaks
