Pedro & Nohemi were amazing. This was an excellent day driving down to Guatape with many stops along the way to sample the local delights. That big rock was amazing, Guatape was a delight to walk around, and all the lakes really make this a very unique and beautiful part of Colombia and the world. Never experienced anything like this in a truly relaxed atmosphere.

The bus was very comfortable. The food stops tasted amazing and delicious. Our guide mahami and our bus driver Pedro were very professional and friendly. They gave us enough time to climb the rock and down as well. However I wish there was more info about the food we were eating. There was some but a little more info would have been nice.

This was a nice day trip to see the countryside outside of Medellin and the amazing natural feature of La Piedra at Guatapé! There were around 7 different stops throughout the day. All or most of these stops included a snack or lunch. Everything was delicious! Our guide Miguel provided just the right amount of detail in English and Spanish. My only regret is not being able to take out cash to pay to go up the rock (25.000 pesos). Everything in Guatapé including the shops and restaurants outside of the rock were cash only— even the bathrooms. So definitely bring plenty of cash.

This is.a great tour! I ate a lot of food and our guide, John, did a great job of leading out group and providing us with a lot of information while also giving us space to explore on our own. Guatape is not to be missed and this tour made it easy to see both the monolith and the nearby town. Our driver, Pedro, was a safe driver and made the trip run smoothly.
