Guatapé & El Peñol private Tour out of Medellín

This tour is not just driving you from Medellín to Guatapé but providing you all our insight on the way to our destination. Besides, we take the most scenic route between Medellín and Guatapé so you can enjoy the most interesting scenery while many other tour operators take a shorter route where they do save some gas but miss out on showing the most amazing sites.

Upon request, we can include a visit to the well preserved town of El Retiro which has beautiful colonial style architecture.
