    Wow we are so glad we booked with this tour! Our English guide Sandy was impeccable, excited, kind & so knowledgeable. He is a gem! Juan Pablo helped us as well and was very kind and they worked so well as a team. Our driver Javier navigated through some crazy traffic and mountainside to get us safely and comfortably to and from. Overall the time was perfect, the day was long and the price is unbeatable for the experience you will get. Cheers!

    This is a good way to see Gautapé and the neighboring village if you don't feel like planning the trip yourself. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I felt I had enough time at the rock in Guatapé even though the group was rather large. In the final town you visit the tour guide might give you an option to see a special place via tuk tuk. If your really into photos and need more views of the rock then you should go. If not then the tuk tuk side trip can be skipped. The boat ride however is totally worth it! Make sure you get a big group so it can be cheap.
