An Unmatchable Value
Apr 2021
This became one of my favorite experiences in Colombia. The view from Peñol Rock was incredible, the boat ride through the lake was breathtaking, the included meal was authentically delicious and the town of Guatape was so colorful and lively that I have never seen anything quite like it. I hope to return some day. The tour operators were also very personable. They were well versed in all the info about the area and cracked some quality jokes along the way. Even though the tour was technically scheduled for english, the person I came with and one other spanish speaker in the group were happy to find that the guides took it upon themselves to relay the information in spanish just for them! Very kind of them to do so.

The Best tour with the best guide
A word "Amazing" is never enough to describe how magnificent was this tour. Lots of beautiful views, fresh breaths and great memories.
A true warm welcoming by the guides and information sharing during full trip. Claim the magnificent rock of Guatape, then delicious lunch, next was an amazing boat tour in the dragon lake and then a so nice visit to one of the most beautiful towns you could see ever. The tour is a must to do while in Medellin and truly worth it.

The company has excellent arrangements and timetable with daily operations to Guatape.
The best choice to make your trip unforgettable with lots of useful information, Please ask them to go with Mr. Jesus; the best guide tour ever. He will take a good care of everyone and will make sure that all get the right information, support, tips of best photos spots, and all support you need in Colombia.
Special thanks to amigo Jesus, you made our trip very memorable.

Phenomenal experience visiting the Rock of Guatape and the Town of Guatape. Thank you Sammy!
Mar 2021
I had a phenomenal time visiting the Rock of Guatape. Sammy, our tour guide made it all the better experience. He was well spoken (English), courteous, professional, and had a great sense of humor. The Rock is located only 1.5-2 hour drive ease of Medellin. Breathtaking views of Lake Guatape and the Rock can be seen from below and at the top of the rock. I was able to scale the Rock in 8 minutes flat! Thank you CrossFit! It was a great workout, and well worth it when you get to the top. To top off this tour, Sammy took us to the wonderful and colorful town of Guatape where he introduced us to some, if not the best tasting coffee and chocolate of Colombia! Serously you must try it! Also I should mention, please try the Zocalo beer that you can also find in the town. Very tasty.
This tour was a wonderful experience, it was full of life and culture, and we spent some quality time time in nature as well. Thank for the great tour Sammy!

Breathtaking views !
Mar 2021 • Couples
Amazing experience. Jesus and Juan Pablo were terrific. Climbing that rock, the boat ride and just touring around Guatape was exceptional. The views were breathtaking and this tour was well worth it. Jesus was our English translator and he ensured that we had a great time and a full understanding of the history and culture of Guatape and Peñol.
