Really fantastic all day trip out to Guatape. It's a lot of driving, but the scenery around the town and lake/reservoir is really nice. We did a walking tour of the town and then paid a bit extra for a boat ride across the lake. We had a four-year-old with us so we did not try to climb El Peñol

We had a fun time going to Comuna 13, it was a drive across town and the whole experience was a great experience to something outside of our home base in El Poblado. We do have two kids, including a four year old, and the tour was probably just a bit too much for a kid that age. Our nine year old loved it

Very easy - we were tired after a long day of travel from the US, and what a relief to have Andres there waiting for us. Speaks excellent English and made an extra stop en route for a few groceries

Andres was an excellent guide, sharing with us his personal experiences of his life in Colombia along with interesting facts and descriptive commentary to accompany our day tour to Guatape. He has a deep passion for agriculture and the natural word, which really brought the Colombian countryside to life. He was very accommodating to our personal interests, adding in a coffee tour, and we never felt rushed. I highly recommend Andres for your tour!

Andres was an excellent tour guide. He was punctual, professional, informative, and flexible with our needs along the tour. We felt immersed in the culture during our stops to taste local Colombian coffee and learn more about the process. Our stop at Guatape and the climb to Penol was excellent. The lunch stop we made in Guatape had one of the best bandeja paisa's we had during our entire visit. I would highly recommend this tour with Andres to anyone visiting Medellin who wants to visit Guatape/Penol.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jennifer for such nice words. It was really nice to travel with you and your friends.

This was a wonderful, informative, inspiring day of gorgeous scenery, wildlife, small towns, and intense learning about coffee, ending with a lovely lunch in a private ranch in the area. Our guide, Andres, was one of the best guides we've ever had - for anything! He is personable, very knowledgeable, a great conversationalist and teacher, and made us curious about everything!! Highest recommendations!!

Andres was a wonderful guide. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic about Medellin. His tour of Comuna 13 was perhaps the most inspiring and informative travel experience we have had over six continents. Just wonderful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter for your nice words. This is actually very encouraging and will definitely continue to show Comuna 13 as the perfect example of resilience.

Andres gave me a great tour of Medellin! He is very knowledgeable about the city, and for tourists like me, who don't speak any Spanish, he is fluent in English. Andres is also a very amiable and pleasant fellow, and I can heartily recommend him to anyone who would like to visit Medellin! Warren

Andres was simply the best. He fit us in last minute, catered the tour perfectly to our interests, and packed our time with as much information and locations as possible. He is also a front of information about the culture and history of Medellin. Would definitely recommend him to every friend visiting Medellin.

Andres was in time with a wealth of knowledge throughout the three tours we took with him the only suggestion I have is that he should supply water and wet rags for his guests an suv should be used for a group of 4 grown adults as planned but a pick up truck it was a bit tight through the rides of Medellín

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the nice words and for the suggestions. All the best!

Tour: #116042, Medellin City Tour plus Coffee Tour, Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia    view tour
Date: Dec 30/18

We started out trip with a visit to a coffee farm (Fabian, the proprietor, was a hoot) - there were actually some ripe beans on the trees and we got to do some picking, navigating the challenges of picking coffee on a hilly landscape. Afterwards, we visited District 13 for the graffiti tour - while interesting, there is better graffiti to be found in other parts of Medellin. If you like Botero, the square (our last stop) is worth seeing, but otherwise the downtown area does not have much to offer.

The countryside surrounding Medellin is beautiful and Andres provided many insights into the culture and history of Colombia during our two hour journey to Guatape. Climbing the rock is optional but worth it though it can get crowded and one needs to be careful navigating the steps both up and down. The view from the top is spectacular. Make sure to stop for pan de yuca during the journey as Andres knows the best location to get that treat - just calling it a cheesy bread doesn't do it justice.

Excellent. We had 4 passengers and had a 9am flight. Andres was early and arrived at 5:07 am for a 5:15am pick up. He had a nice comfortable truck with a covered bed. This made it easy to load and unload. I am about 6'4 so this was great in contrast to an earlier cab ride during the day where we all squeezed into a Nissan Sentra which is on the larger side of standard taxis. We had a wonderful conversation on the way to the airport and it was cool seeing how lively Medellin is in the early morning.

Excellent tour. Andres is a true professional. He communicated well, paid attention to the details, was on time, had a comfortable clean vehicle, and knew how to gracefully navigate through a busy complicated interesting city. More importantly, as we shared experiences we gained a deep respect for him and the resiliency of the Colombian people.

Andres has a fund of information about Medellin's history, politics, general culture and safety points. He patiently answered all of our questions with in depth explanations. He was easy to communicate with and altered the tour to our requests. In addition to the downtown area, we explored Comuna 13, which is a visual showcase! It was a treat to spend time with Andres and gain an appreciation of the Country of Colombia. I highly recommend Andres.

Andres was fabulous- not only extremely knowledgeable about all things Medellín, he is quite a traveler himself, thus really understands how to adjust a tour to fit individual needs ... not just the packaged script so manu guides fall back on. We Had a blast spending the day together and parted as new friends!

We spent two wonderful days with Andres, as he was able to combine the Concordia Coffee Tour with the Finca Tour. We stopped first at the coffee farm, where we were led through the process from beginning to end, followed by a visit to the town of Concordia, and then we were off to the finca, which was a paradise up on the hill some distance from Concordia. Andres was responsible for the most exciting part of our Colombian trip. He is a gem! I highly recommend any tour with him.

Andres is a very articulate and thoughtful tour guide. There were four of us traveling together, and he was able to meet our every need during the city tour. He was very flexible about our touring, including the Commune 13 Graffiti and Cerro el Volador. He even took us to the huge central market for a very authentic lunch. Simply said, he was a marvel.

The tour to the countryside and coffee plantation with Andres was fantastic. He is a knowledgeable, thoughtful, accomplished person. It was wonderful to be able to share the day with him and learn so much about Colombia and coffee while enjoying spectacular scenery. The tour was far beyond our expectations. We cannot recommend Andres enough.

Andres was excellent. He was totally, and I mean TOTALLY flexible. At the last minute we asked him to take us to Comunas 13 rather than doing the general tour of Medellin that we'd originally booked. He readily agreed, made all the changes and we had a fascinating 4 hours. Andres knew a lot of the residents of Comunas 13 which made it all much more enjoyable.

Andres was a fabulous guide as he took us on the scenic route, shared lots of history, guided us through the town and found a fabulous lunch spot. The view from the top of the rock was stunning - worth climbing 700 steps.
