Full description

Discover Guatape on a private, customizable tour by car from Medellin. Visit a coffee farm, walk up the mighty Rock of Guatape, and walk through vibrantly colorful village streets during your tour. Your guide will explain the culture and the history of the region, so you end your day full of local facts.

Meet your guide at your hotel in Medellin and sit back and relax on the roughly 2-hour-long car ride to Guatape. Once there, stretch your legs with a walk through town. See the Main Square with its intricate white and red Cathedral, the colorful Plazotela de Los Zócalos, the Street of Memories, and more.

Then, go on a 40-minute coffee tour, where you get a better understanding of the whole process of Colombian coffee, all told by the same farmers in the region.

Next, climb up the 700 stairs to the top of the unmissable, 220-meter-high Rock of Guatape that looms over the town. Enjoy panoramic views of the Peńol reservoir from its peak.

Best of all, as this is a private tour without any time restrictions, you can stop whenever you want and tailor the tour to suit your needs and preferences.

This would have been a wonderful day trip. Our guide, Cesar, was terrific - very personable and knowledgeable. HOWEVER, we drove most of the way to Guatape, but near the end spent 2 1/2 hours to travel about 3 miles due to traffic being held up because of a landslide that damaged the road! We ended up turning around when we were told that the return trip would be just as bad. So BEFORE booking and heading out on this trip, make sure the road is clear all the way to Guatape!!! We learned later that night, when we were back in Medellin, that the road just completely closed that evening and would remain totally closed for repairs for another 2 weeks or so! (Apparently this situation made the tv news in Medellin!). Luckily, we were able to enjoy being in the car with Cesar, who was extremely informative about the history, politics, and culture of Colombia.
