    What to Expect
    Meet your private guide at your hotel in Medellín and hop into an air-conditioned car to start your tour. With just your guide and your private party, drive two hours to reach El Peñol, a well-known boulder with a great view of the surrounding area. Throughout the ride, listen to commentary about the history and culture of the area from your guide.

    Upon arrival, climb the 700 steps to the top of the boulder with your guide, who will entertain and inform you the entire trip. After admiring the view, come back down to tour the town of Guatape and eat lunch on the waterfront (own expense). You can optionally ride a boat around the lake, depending on time.

    Pass through a number of small towns before returning to your hotel (drop-off is later for passengers who choose the waterfall option).

    Hello and thank you very much for your candid review! I'm glad you mentioned that our guide was pleasant and that you had a good conversation with him. This is very important, as most guides from other places sound very mechanical and go by a script. We are all about having a blast on our tours, our customers are like family! Absolutely, we will be here with open arms when you come back to our beloved Medellin! Cheers, Alex from Medellintravels.com

    Julian is an amazing tour guide. We learned about the history of the places we visited and the sights were spectacular. The minivan has nice comfortable seats for the drive from Medellín and back. This is truly a gorgeous country and tour.
