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.

Mauricio was a great guide. He picked us up at our apartment in Medellin on time and spoke great English - told us great stories and explained everything the entire day. We had a nice breakfast closer to El Peñol and then we went on a 45 minute boat ride on the Guatapé dam. Next we went to climb the Rock. It has stunning views of the area and it’s totally worth it. We were exhausted and stopped for a nice lunch right after of typical paisa food. Yummy. From lunch we went into the town of Guatapé and it’s famous zócalos. My wife is a photographer and Mauricio took us on a walking tour for several hours. It’s a gorgeous, whimsical place. We stopped for great café at the plazeta and bought nice and very reasonably priced arts and crafts. By the end we were exhausted but very happy. Guatapé must be one of the prettiest towns we’ve ever visited. We highly recommend this tour (Sergio, the owner, runs a very tight ship snd checked in with us before, during and after. Fantastic experience).
