I took this tour two months prior. It was equally as impressive. My tour guide this time was Carolina (Caro). She is very personable and I enjoyed hearing her details about Medellin. She gave amazing advice on places to eat and other things to do around the city. Since I've taken two tours with this group, I can honestly say they are wonderful.

This tour was perfect. We went back in February 2020 with some friends. Pablo was so informative, charming, interesting and friendly. You could ask him anything. The tour was approx 3 hours or so, so wear suitable clothing for the weather and appropriate shoes but there are a lot of stops on the way. There is so much history and great stories that Pablo recalls. Highly recommend.

This tour was recommended to me by fellow travelers and ex-pats living in Medellin and it absolutely lived up to the hype. Our guide, Julio, was energetic and incredibly knowledgable. I also appreciated his honesty when describing darker parts of Colombia's history, and his own experiences during those times. Highly recommend!
