Excelente manera de explorar y aprender sobre la historia y la gente de Guatapé. Realmente disfrutamos nuestro recorrido y aprendimos sobre la historia y la gente de la ciudad. Disfrutamos de las fotografías que nuestro guía turístico compartió con nosotros para ver el antes y el después del pueblo. El ritmo del recorrido fue excelente para nosotros y la comunicación para reservar el recorrido fue fácil. No se pierda este recorrido, es una excelente manera de honrar la historia de la ciudad y aprender verdaderamente de un local. Incluso me dio unos minutos para detenerme y realizar una compra. *traer paraguas por si llueve como nos pasó.

As if this small company needed anymore 5 stars but Beatriz is truly a gem for this town. Explaining the history behind the town but also the current struggles that the town as a whole faces. If you ever wanted to experience a local af tour. Look no further; support the local economy and especially locals who are so very proud.

I appreciate being able to support a woman entrepreneur, and we had some great conversations together about Colombia's challenges, as she is a campaigner for sustainable tourism. She picked us up at the hotel and we went to a small family's coffee finca. We learned a lot. 240,000 for my boyfriend and me ($84 cad for the 2 of us). It's better to speak directly with the guide on Watsapp to know the prices than on the website.
