It was a perfect day! Manuel was very timely from start to finish. Manuel speaks great English and was very friendly and knowledgeable. The arrival to Piedra Penol was amazing, the climb exhilarating, the lunch was yummy! Get the fish soup! The walking of the town was super cute learn about the history and the resilience of the Guatape people. For a solo traveler was a great value and wonderful time! Highly recommend

I had a great time with Manuel. He picked me up at the appointed time and we chatted lots in English and Spanish on the way. Everything for the boat trip, El Peñol and the guided tour of Gautapé went seamlessly and Manuel delivered me back safely to the hotel.
