    We had Sandy, Alejandro and Luis for our tour and we really enjoyed the tour! It was a true team effort to manage over 30 people on one tour and they did a wonderful job. The only unfortunate part is other tourists causing inconveniences for the whole group by wandering off or showing up late but this is not the fault of the tour guides. They all did a great job trying to be flexible with everyone and still get us back in time. I am so glad we chose to do this tour!

    I have been to the Piedra del Peñol before, but this trip was awesome! They picked me up in Medellin and I was able to just have fun with my daughter and not worry about transportation or traffic. This trip was so amazing, that my daughter asked if it was real. I was very pleased, and the price can't be beat.

    Sandy our guide was very energetic and knowledgeable about the sites we visited…Alberto, the bus driver is a true professional. Take as early a tour as possible as it gets busier throughout the day. Don’t be intimidated by The Rock of Guatapé climb as it’s very easy and most do it in under 20 minutes. Lunch is an added bonus and the boat ride is quick but enjoyable. Great value overall.
