Description

Join a personal guide and discover the monolith of El Peñol on this full-day tour. Your guide takes you to the enormous boulder, stopping at the Trojan Horse to see artisan works at Nuevo Peñol along the way. After climbing the rock, visit picturesque Guatapé before returning to Medellin.

Your guide picks you up from your hotel in the morning, beginning the drive out to El Peñol. Your first stop is at the Trojan Horse, a site showcasing the artisan works that can be found throughout the country. Browse beautifully handmade crafts and watch artists at work before moving on. Next, head to Nuevo Peñol, a city built after the old town was flooded with the construction of the dam in Guatapé. Visit the town's church and see a replica of Old Peñol before moving on.

Arrive finally at El Peñol, a natural monolithic rock formation towering 721 feet (220 metre) in height that was once worshipped by the Tahaimes Indians of the region. If you choose, climb the 740 steps to the monolith's summit, where you can take in 360-dgree views of the surrounding landscapes and the Peñol-Guatapé reservoir.

Back on the ground, continue your tour to the city of Guatapé. As you walk through the streets, admire vibrantly coloured houses with delightful painted zocalos, or wooden bas-reliefs along their bases. After a brief tour of the city, board a boat on the Peñol-Guatapé reservoir and learn about its creation in the 1970s. Following your cruise, make the return journey to Medellin.

Our guide Hector made this experience one of the most enjoyable and fun experiences that one can have from a tour. He was patient and understanding. Not once did he rush us. He allowed us to take everything in and enjoy it at our own pace. Guatape is beautiful as well as the Rock in El Peñol. I'd recommend this tour to everyone. Thank you for the amazing conversation and for introducing us to your friends in every stop. Made the experience one to remember.

Absolutely an amazing day! Nicolas went above and beyond and gave us a very comprehensive tour including samplins of Medellín food along the way. He was extremely personable yet professional. Best tour we’ve been on to date!
