Customer Testimonials

Amazing Experience & Service for Families

We used Palenque Tours for our family’s month long trip to Colombia in December. We were very glad that we chose this company! The trip planning process was smooth and once we arrived in Colombia we were happy with the quality of the hotels, transportation and tours. We appreciated that Palenque Tours continued to check in with us throughout our trip, so when we had questions they were answered quickly (and in English). Thank you!

Great Tours & A Wonderful Guide

We recently had the pleasure to take several tours with Palenque and were lucky enough to have Ana Maria as our guide. She was so patient and knowledgeable and it really came through in her desire to show all the sights her beautiful city has to offer. We strongly recommend the Transformational Tour of the city that included a fascinating visit to the escalators and Communa 13 where she seemed to know everyone. We even got to met one of the city’s famous Graffiti artists. A great day touring Medellin. We followed that day with a day trip to the Piedra del Penol and Guatape with Ana Maria, another great tour that left us wanting more if we had the time. Very professional tour company with a great guide, comfortable van, and great service.

Excellent Tour Company

We arranged a ten day private tour. They were great to work with in customizing the trip, and very accessible. Everything was seamless. The guides in each of the three areas we visited were terrific. Nancy in particular was a fantastic guide, in Medellin and the surrounding province. All were very knowledgeable, flexible and accommodating., and we got to see some less touristed areas in addition to the major attractions. I heartily recommend Palenque!
