Totally recommend this tour . It’ Gives you free time to explore on your own! Beyond what I expected! Thank you Patricia for this amanzing tour
The tour beginning was confusing. I showed up at 7am for 7:45 start but bus didn't show till 8:35am , no one speaking English till then . After that awkward start the tour went well, breakfast and lunch were good and tour guide spoke good English.
Great tour - really good value for money you see quiet a few things, breakfast and lunch is included and you get plenty of time to take pictures.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful touring experience! Two pick up locations were offered for convenience and we met the bus/staff at a park. We selected an English tour guide, but there was also the Spanish guide there as well that spoke directly to our Spanish speaking tourists. Check in was easy and the bus was very comfortable. We made a couple of stops before and after the "main event" at lovely little towns. Here our guide gave us guided tours and then allowed free time. Two meals were also included in this; an arepa with local cheese for breakfast and then our choice of one from 3 or 4 dishes for lunch. The food was very good. Once at the guatape rock we also had the choice of paying extra and climbing the stairs to the top or just to remain at the bottom...we of course had to see the view from the top! The stairway was built outside of the rock, so there was plenty of air flowing and beautiful views along the way, in case you needed to stop for a breather. It was a great workout, but one that any able bodied person can do if they pace themselves. The view was incredible! Really, a once in a lifetime experience. Would definitely recommend this tour for any one traveling through Colombia!
Great tour overall for the price. Includes some breakfast , good lunch , and a great tour ! Would definitely recommend this tour
