The hike up the rock's great, bit weather reliant but we got lucky with a warm clear day. Guatapé pueblo is pretty with many nice spots. Gabbi was a great guide, funny and knowledgeable. she knew all the good spots around town, too. Well worth the money!

Our guide Ginna was wonderful! She was always on top of things, friendly, organized and gave good clear instructions for times and meeting points. Julian our driver was great. We had some traffic issues but he still got us back in good time.
