Our Guide Erickson was high energy and very helpful. Both guides spoke English well. The breakfast and lunch have vegetarian options and are very tasty. The boat ride is definitely the highlight — they show you Pablo’s mansion and a bunch of newly built resorts on the lake. You should expect to be back in Medellín about 7:30-8 PM. Make sure you bring cash to climb the rock.

Erikson was an extremely nice and energetic guide. He tells a lot of interesting stories about the history of the the places that you visit during the tour. The organisation is very easy to reach for any questions beforehand, during, or after the tour. The food at the restaurants you visit is also good and plenty to keep you going through the day and climb el peñon.

The tour was great! Very well organized with the stops and got to see a lot. Osi was a great tour guide as well. Only thing is you should remind people to bring a sweater :)

Brayan was amazing! Gave good insight and showed us good spots for street food! The rooftop bar is nice but drinks not included. Would recommend

Very nice day trip. Easy to do with two children aged 5 and 8.
