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).
The views from the top El Peñol rock are beautiful. We climbed the 750 steps with our kids and it was totally worth it. Our guide, Luis Fernando was great; knowledgeable, with great energy and great sense of humor. Don’t forget to grab some “pan de queso” in the drive up to Guatapé. The town of Guatapé is pretty cool. It was nice to walk around the town square full of crafts and local shops and bars.
We booked the Guatape private tour from Viaje Medellin. Beforehand we received all information to optimally prepare for the trip. We were picked up at our hotel on time, toured with an experienced driver/guide and had a wonderful time. We got a lot of personal attention from the owner Mr. Sergio Gomez. If you want a safe and pleasant private tour we can recommend Viaje Medellin.
I took this private Guatape tour today and I must say it was amazing! Sergio Gómez did an amazing job of coordinating everything and making sure I had a good time. I definitely recommend this to others.
Very good tour. Would always recommend to Sontheim private one. Guatapé was just amazing and it was well organized. Pickup was on time
