    Si visitas a Medellin no dejes de escaparte por un día para un Tour a Guatape. Recorrido por carretera agrícola con vistas muy bonitas. Vala la pena subir los 740 escalones de la piedra.

    We did the tour with Sandy and Elizabeth, who were well organized and very friendly with the guests. Sandy was an excellent tour guide, speaking facts that were interesting but not overbearing, his delivery was great, and he was great to listen to. We went to Peñol, had lunch, went on a boat, and went to Guatapé. 10/10 would recommend this tour!

    Tours Guatape was a great way to visit La Piedra del Peñol and Guatape from Medellin! The tour buses arrived at the meeting points promptly and divided each bus by tour language (~35 people on our bus). Sandy was a particularly excellent guide and provided historical and cultural context to Medellin, towns we drove through, the Guatape reservoir, and La Piedra del Peñol. He also adjusted the order of our activities in Guatape to avoid excessive crowds, which was greatly appreciated.
