Fantastic tour with very friendly and informative guide. Cannot recommend this tour enough--it was one of my favorite parts of my 10 days in Colombia.

This was a great tour! Alex, the owner of Medellín tours was great! He knows the shortcuts and the locals so he can bring it all together nicely! He has a great wealth of knowledge and he is very friendly. Would highly recommend this tour with his business.

The private tour of El Penol, Guatape and the waterfall was fantastic. Lina, who started the tour company, met me right on time and was a phenomenal guide. She is smart, knowledgeable about the history, culture, people and landscape of Medellin and the places we visited and was fun to talk to throughout the day. The locations were beautiful and the history and stories about them were fascinating. I highly recommend this tour.

If you take only one tour during your visit to Colombia, this should be the one!! El Peñol and Guatapé was the second tour we took with Lina from Medellin Travels, and once again she did not let us down! We left in the morning, stopping for local pan de queso along the way. We got to El Peñol, where she gave us lots of time to climb the rock and enjoy the view along the way. At the top we relaxed for a bit, took lots of photos, and had a drink and a paleta before climbing back down. Then we headed into beautiful Guatapé for a traditional lunch at an amazing restaurant and a little bit of walking and shopping around town. Overall, this tour was absolutely wonderful and should not be missed!

This private trip is amazing, amazing staff and amazing view. The Gatape town is colorful and beatiful, and the view of the islands is majestical. The guide is also the driver, she let me to take my time and gives me a good recommendation for the lunch. I really enjoy it.

Our tour guide was very professional. He picked us up on time from the hotel and his car was clean. During our tour he stopped at a nice place on the road for us to get some Colombian coffee and cheese bread. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and gave us really good explanations of the area and the town's history. Beautiful views from the top of El Peñol!....just prepare yourself for climbing over 700 steps...Definitely a must see if you are in Medellin for a few days and have time to leave the city for a day.
