    The tour guides were friendly, helpful and informative. Great mix of activities between the Piedra, the boat ride and the Guatape city tour, all of which are beautiful and a must-see day trip from Medillin! Ultimately, one could set up this day trip on their own but this tour is a great value and makes all the logistics of the bus ride, multiple stops in different locations, plus lunch and the boat ride, very easy.

    Highly recommend ! It was such a fun trip. Don’t let the 11 hours scare you away, you’re never feeling bored or feeling like too much time was spent in one place. It was all perfectly planned out. And it’s nice to have someone take care of the driving for you (we had Alberto- great smooth driver). Our tour guides were awesome. Sandy was the English guide and his English was perfect, he was very friendly and knowledgeable. Sandra was the Spanish guide and was so sweet and friendly. Going up the rock was my favorite part of the trip for sure. It’s gorgeous up there.

    It was such an incredible experience! The guides were informational and friendly. We went through the Andean mountains, the local towns, and the scenery was beautiful. The lunch was the best we had so far! The walking tour was perfect also, Mario was so funny and attentive to all of us. Would recommend this!
