Juan was amazing in providing us the history go Guatape. We ate at a local restaurant and it was wonderful after climbing all of those steps. This tour was booked last minute and our travel agent was able to reserve Juan to be our tour guide. This is how much we enjoyed him and felt comfortable that we specifically asked for him.

Amazing experience! Julio is one of a kind. Super friendly and helpful with any questions you may have. Guatape was beautiful and the hike up Penol rock isn’t bad. If you are looking for a smooth and fun experience I would highly recommend!

We started a tour earlier on a request of our tour guide, which was a great idea because we could enjoy amazing views from el Peñol rock with moderate croud and avoid very long queues which appeared when we were leaving.
Pay attention on what is included in the tour and do not count on a guide. We had to pay the entrance fee to the rock on our own.

Cristian was our guide and did a great job. Was very punctual and informative. Getting to see Guatape was amazing. One of the most beautiful places on Earth. It is a heckuva climb. We went on a boat ride and that was also worth it. Cristian knew all of the best shops and restaurants. Definitely worth it.

Wow! Can I just say, Wow? Guatape and La Piedra are my new favorite places on Earth. I had an amazing day with Juan David, he is very helpful and easy to talk with. It was the perfect day out there. The tour never seemed rushedand he had a lot to add. Best day and highly recommend everyone should visit Guatape and the top of La Piedra! Wow!

What a great day.

Daniel picked us up at our hotel on time, drove us in a comfortable SUV to see everything we could have possibly wanted, and was knowledgeable, friendly, and just a great time. These guys handled everything- start to finish- for us, and we got to see/hike/experience everything we wanted to. A really great day- and Daniel was the perfect tour guide.

Thank you Andres for a great tour. Andres arrived at 8 am on the dot as arranged and drove us with great care and attention, in rainy conditions, to El Peñol where two members of our party climbed the rock and the third was kept entertained with local history, by Andres. Then on to Guadapè where Andres showed us the sights while filling us in on local lore. He brought us to a good restaurant which served local food at a good price, then on to the lake where we enjoyed a boat tour, all the while Andres filled us in on Pablo Escobar's connection with the lake. Andres also pointed out local landmarks. Andres approach is calm, measured and informed. He was a wonderful companion for the day and navigated the 6 lane highway with aplomb, before dropping us home. Thank you Andres.
