Perfect Day Trip
Jan 2020 • Couples
I was a little concerned initially with spending the money on a private tour, but I am very glad I did. Our guide Oscar was very nice, professional and knowledgeable. Transport was very smooth and comfortable and our time with Oscar was very pleasant. His English is also very strong, no communication issues at all. Highly recommended.

Amazing Tour, Excellent Guide
Nov 2019
This was our second tour booked through Medellin Travels. We were so impressed by Carlos, the guide on our previous tour, that we booked through them and requested Carlos. The vehicle provided was clean and reliable. The drive to and from Guatape is beautiful. Upon arriving you understand why so many visit this place. It really is worth the visiting. All the pictures you have seen don't do this place justice. You have to book the tour and see for yourself. Having a guide like Carlos to answer you questions, makes the experience that much better. I highly recommend you book through Medellin Travels and ask for Carlos.

Fantastic day out with a wonderful tour guide
Nov 2019
This was a private tour for two of us. Our guide Oscar met us at our hotel on time. He explained to us the plan for the day and then we set off in his comfortable, air conditioned SUV. He was both professional and friendly. The first part of the day was spent on a scenic drive through the outskirts of Medellin, the new neighbourhoods being built in Bocagrande and then through the farmlands on to El Penol. Throughout the journey Oscar told us about the area and its history. The rock was incredible- although the walk up at over 700 stairs is hard work! Having taken lots of photos we then went on to Guatape where Oscar walked us through the town of Zocalos. Again this was a great opportunity to take photos. Finally after a lunch in a local restaurant overlooking the lake, we headed back towards Medellin for the final stop - Tequendamita Falls - a naturally occurring waterfall. We arrived back at our hotel at about 16.30. This was a really interesting and active day out with a great guide - expensive, but absolutely enjoyable.

ENJOYABLE TRIP TO EL PENOL
Jul 2019
Our family had a great tour to El Penol and Guatape. The tour bus/van picked us up on time at our finca. The journey was pleasant and filled with good conversation with David. Everything was arranged when we got to El Penol. David conducted the walking tour of Guatape and was very knowledgeable. He found us a great restaurant as well to finish our tour. All in in all a very professional company that provided a great tour experience. Will certainly book with them again next time we're back in Colombia.

Hello and thank you very much for your candid review! I'm glad you mentioned that our guide was pleasant and that you had a good conversation with him. This is very important, as most guides from other places sound very mechanical and go by a script. We are all about having a blast on our tours, our customers are like family! Absolutely, we will be here with open arms when you come back to our beloved Medellin! Cheers, Alex from Medellintravels.com

Fantastic Day Trip from Medellin
We are four friends who recently went to Guatapé with David. He was a fantastic tour guide and we had an amazing experience. The private tour was very comfortable and accommodating, even changing our pickup location and offering to change our drop off location to make time for other activities. The guide (David) was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly, he’s the kind of tour guide that makes you feel like you’re meetinfba friend of a friend for a casual day out and around the city. We enjoyed our tour with David so much that we are in the process of scheduling another tour with him. I’d recommend this tour anyone looking to see Guatapé!
