    What an amazing visit this was! Guatape is such a beautiful town! The zocalos on every building are so colorful and vibrant, and they tell often the story of what goes on inside, such as a shoemaker. The guide was phenomenal!

    Great tour for the price as it included lunch, transportation and the boat ride. The guides were very friendly but I believe that we may have lost some of the details with the English guide as he was a little hard to understand sometimes but he was super friendly, enthusiastic and accommodating.

    Maybe add one more house to visit Guatape town, and 30 more minutes to the rock. Too short the time to enjoy the most

    Town wonderful-lake and rock are meh
    Yolanda_G
    , Jul 2022
    The tour guides were super friendly and helpful. Thanks Elena and Alejandra!! The tour itself we felt was too fast moving, if you really must see the rock, the lake and the town all in one day then go ahead and and do the tour but really we felt the town was incredible but we only had about an hour and half to walk around here. The rock was a bit underwhelming and the lake was also a little meh. Especially if you live in an area with lakes and mountains. The art and streets of guatape are amazing. So if its the colorful town your after, rather take a bus to guatape yourself and stay overnight. Or a private car. If you don't mind bus tours then you may be fine with this one.

    This tour along with Communa 13 was the best part of our Medellin experience. Excellent organisation, you get to cover it all (Penon, lake, incredibly charming town of Guatape). Lunch is also good and Alexandra is a wonderful guide, really amazing at what she does. I appreciate a lot her story about zocolos. Fantastic value for money.

    Worst Disorganized Tour
    Itri_A
    , Jul 2022
    We have been to 75 countries. This is one of the worst organised tours that we have ever encountered in our lives. Some unnecessary boat tour that we had to take which made us lose almost 1 hour for nothing. Then the lunch which was absolutely horrible that we had to leave our dishes because it was full of oil. We had no enough time to see the town of Guatape because of this disorganised tour. We didn’t have even enough time to drink coffee at the Guatape town. This is not the mistake of the guides but the mistake of the tour company.

    This trip was great! Luis was great as our bus driver and Sandy was an awesome tour guide and Elizabeth was a great organizer. Sandy communicated with us the day before to make sure we would meet on time, and actually a little bit early so we would beat the traffic since the day we went was a holiday. This worked out really well because we were able to avoid most of the traffic. Sandy and Elizabeth also adjusted our schedule so we would be able to enjoy the Piedra de Penol and Guatape town when it was a little less crowded. The lunch was great and everything was organized -- get the Bandeja Paisa! Guatape town was beautiful and Sandy gave a great tour and both him and Elizabeth made sure the whole group had everything they needed. They even waited for us when we got stuck in the crowds at the Piedra del Penol. If you are staying in Medellin, definitely take this tour -- it's worth it!!!!

    We were very pleased with this tour— EXCELLENT value. The price is very affordable for the length and what it includes. The tour includes lunch, bus, a guided tour in Guatape, and free time. The lunch included was excellent with three choices —chicken, fish and bandeja paisa. Elizabeth was also very good and definitely did her job, but a little more enthusiasm would have been great, as the day was long! Please be advised that you need to be in good health to climb the stone. It was 740 steps each way and they were narrow. You can opt to stay downstairs and walk around, plenty to do.

    Great tour for a very convenient price. Our guides Helena and Sandy have been really good at showing us the places, telling interesting facts and interact with the group. The rock is worth the visit and the town of Guatapé is interesting to see. I would definitely recommend it during your stay in Medellín.

    What an amazing and breathtaking experience! We spent the whole day learning new things and places. El Peñol is absolutely intimidating , but so worth doing. My legs were shaking by the time I got to the top , but man, that view just leaves you in awe. Our tour guide, Sandra, was so educated and helpful too. We definitely had a great time on this tour; I would probably take the trip again to Guatape for the views, lake, and town.
