Where you'll be

We will take a boat ride through the dam, where we can relax and enjoy its beautiful landscapes and we will tell you the most representative stories of the people and culture.
Then we will visit the stone of the peñol and climb its 707 steps, which will give you a reward for the most unique and beautiful view of the peñol dam with a 360-degree view of the dam.
And finally we will visit the town of Guatapé full of magic and color

Excellent tour, all parts of it. Sergio was a great guide and knows all the ways to get in and out of the tourist areas efficiently, and the knows the best places to grab coffee or a snack. Highly recommended.

Unbelievable experience! Sergio is so kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. We loved spending the day with him and felt so taken care of and learned so much! There are so many nice surprises along the way and everything is planned amazingly well. The boat ride and stories, the coffee stops, the local artesans.. The pan de queso!! All was incredible. Would recommend this 1000000%!!!

I had a wonderful day exploring Guatape and the surrounding area with Sergio. Sergio was punctual, flexible, attentive and a great storyteller with a passion for his region. He offered treats throughout the trip, showed me the best coffee and chocolate and took me to a great lunch spot (all included in the price). Would highly recommend this tour.

Let me start off by saying this is the SECOND time I completed the same tour with Sergio, this time taking along my boyfriend. I was so happy on my tour with him two years ago, that I took the chance of doing it again, and I am so happy we did! I wanted my boyfriend to experience the wonderful time I had the first time I visited Penol and Guatape. I swear it was even better! Sergio is a kind person that is passionate about sharing the country's history... he has so much knowledge! I love the extra stops we made along the way... and the special insights and passion he has regarding Colombia as a whole. Feel free to ask him for ideas on places to explore and things to do during your trip. COVID tidbit - Sergio has great sanitation practices to ensure guests are sanitizing frequently from the beginning to the end of the trip. I recommend this as your FIRST tour when visiting. Just make sure you are ready to climb all those stairs LOL believe me it's worth it!

Super ! Je recommande à 200% . J'ai beaucoup appris sur Guatapé. La journée était bien remplie sans être trop fatigante. Sergio est incollable sur Guatapé, il saura répondre à toutes vos questions. Important pour les voyageurs en solo : il n'y a pas de minimum de participants :). Le trajet fut hyper agréable, je n'ai même pas senti les deux heures de route. Nous avons déjeuné dans un super restaurant une vue Magnifique (une chose est sûre, vous n'aurez pas faim durant cette journée). Une chose à dire, si vous voulez visiter Guatapé, Foncez ! Great! I recommend 200%. I learned a lot on Guatapé. The day was full without being too tiring. Sergio is great on Guatapé, he will be able to answer all your questions. Important for solo travelers: there is no minimum number of participants :). The trip was very pleasant, I didn't even feel the two hours of driving. We had lunch in a great restaurant with a wonderful view (one thing is sure, you won't be hungry during this day). One thing to say, if you want to visit Guatapé, go for it!

Sergio put a notable amount of extra passion, effort, and attention into this entire trip. Sergio is very polite and informative. He is a local with decades of experience in these areas, and has done this journey many times. Everything from being at the starting point on time, the comfortable air conditioned ride, taking pictures for you, the tasty treats in Penol and Guatape (the climb was great with rewarding views), the delicious coffees, the boat ride past Pablo Escobar's lake house, and explaining the rich history of areas involved............bravo Sergio, bravo. This tour is a must do if you are able to attend.
