    Marlo was an excellent and caring tour guide. One of the best tours I have ever done in my life. He always made sure we were looked after, satisfied. He was extremely kind to everyone and tour was very well organized. He gave us enough time to explore each stops. And always greeted us with a welcoming smile. He even gifted us hand sanitizers because we really liked the one he was using. He went above and beyond, went to a shop and bought us 3 bottles of the same one he was using. We wanted to pay him but he didn’t accept the money.

What people are saying about Antioquia

Excellent trip, very well organized. Even though I don't speak Spanish and joined a Spanish-language tour, it was worthwhile to join for transportation to Hacienda Napoles in a comfortable bus, with good meal stops. The guide spoke some English, so I was able to follow along, but generally relied on my own research and park maps to get around. It would have been much trickier to arrange independently, so I was glad to have pick-up and drop-off by private bus. It's a very long day, but plenty to see and do at Hacienda Napoles.

We had a great experience in the Sabrita Dinner Cruise. We got chosen to sit at the front of the boat which served a very special experience for us! The food was amazing and filling and the service was great. We will recommend

The team were very attentive and willing to help out in every aspect of the trip. Every activity was prepended by the guide giving recommendations as to what to expect and what was going to happen
