What to Expect
Beginning the tour at your lodging in Medellín, your guide will drive you east direction to the outskirts of the city in a comfortable car for two hours, where you'll listen from your private guide about the "paisa" traditions, culture and history as long as you enjoy the panoramic view from the valley, the beautiful nature and immense mountains, while crossing small towns before getting to Guatapé.  On the way we'll make a quick stop to try Colombian tropical fruits, you will delight your palate with the sweetest and most bitter fruits.

Before getting to our destination, you will ride on friendly horses for almost 2 hours crossing amazing landscapes in the mountains around the city.

Then, we'll visit the replica town of the old Peñol, where you can get souvenirs of the trip and also know more about the past of this region before the construction of the dam. Continue heading to the boulder, get ready to climb the rock (Entrance included) and enjoy a breathtaking 360 degrees view to capture unforgettable pictures.

Our next stop is going to be Guatapé, where you'll enjoy lunch (own expense) before the stroll through the most important landmarks such as the main square, zócalos square, remembrance street, traditions, friendly people and corners with fascinating stories that your guide is going to share with you.

Then we'll drive back to your lodging in Medellín, OR WE CAN DROP YOU OFF AT THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WITH NO EXTRA FEE.
