Where you'll be

Our first stop is in the town of Guarne for a light, typical Antioquian snack. Our next stop will be a short visit in Marinilla to enjoy the history and sights of this small town. Following that, we will stop at the Piedra del Penol and you will have ample time to climb the stairs to the top and enjoy the spectacular views of the Guatape Resevoir and surrounding hillside. Lastly, we will visit the town of Guatape in the afternoon.

It’s mostly getting on a mini-bus and driving to “the rock” and Guatape village. Plus a 40-min scenic boat ride, and a modest lunch. Our English host Sandy made an effort to be helpful… but we didn’t really communicate with other guests on the trip

Honestly, for the price, you can't afford not to do this tour. It was such a fun filled day. And what made it even better was the meeting the different people and excellent service from the guides (Sandy, Elena, and Alberto). Glad I got to experience Guatape with this company and would gladly return.

This Tour is a MUST if you want to go to Guatape/El Penol. Everything about our experience was very professionally done and genuine. We had two guides; Elana for spanish and Sandy for English. Both do a fantastic job of explaining what you are seeing. Also Sandy's english was excellent and very easy to understand! The itinerary was perfectly timed where you did not need to rush, but you also were not waiting around all day for the next thing to do. It is an early start to the day but, it was a thing because we got to El Penol before the crowds of other groups that decided to sleep in. Finally, the expereince listing does mention that we would not get back until 7:30, but we got back at 6:00 which was perfect timing! Can't recommend this experience enough!

My friend took ill and we had to take a taxi back to Medellín, but Jesús and Elena were super nice. I wrongly assumed that there would be an ATM at the entrance to Guatape, but Jesus offered to lend me the entrance fee until I could take out some cash. Super nice people and I’m very sad I missed time with them.
