Our first stop is in the town of Guarne for a light, typical Antioquian snack. Our next stop will be a short visit in Marinilla to enjoy the history and sights of this small town. Following that, we will stop at the Piedra del Penol and you will have ample time to climb the stairs to the top and enjoy the spectacular views of the Guatape Resevoir and surrounding hillside. Lastly, we will visit the town of Guatape in the afternoon.

    a great overall tour and amazing value for money. The only constructive criticism given was that on the relaxing boat ride the boat driver was playing heavy party music which is great but not when trying to relax on the lake. Views from ontop of el penol are amazing...

    The experience detail says up to 10 people so I wasn't impressed when I got on a coach full of over 30 people. It's simply not the way I like to travel. The young guide was very passionate and enthusiastic if you like that kind of thing. Penol was touristy and busy. I would have liked a longer boat trip, without the awful music. Despite this, I really enjoyed the day and it was still so much easier than trying to do it all independently.
