It was an amazing and very well organized tour. Our tour guide Mateo was great and the tour was also bilingual, which made it so easy for my son who only speaks english to understand and also enjoy the tour. All the landmarks were very well explained, tour bus was very comfortable with reclining chairs and clean with A/C, and the landmarks and towns were absolutely beautiful! They also provided us with a very traditional and delicious breakfast and lunch. I recommended the tour to other family members and friends and told them it’s a must do tour especially with Viaja Medellin!

Our experience was more than great thanks to our amazing tour guide , Mary , she was enthusiastic and willingness to help. I truly recommend to book a tour to Guatapé with her, all the activities were just as planned according to the itinerary and gave us a very comfortable time to enjoy.
