Know More about this tour

Your licensed English-speaking tour guide pick you up in the morning from your hotel or apartment in a new comfortable vehicle. You will then be transported to the metro station where you will enjoy a smooth ride along with pleasant views of the city, the river, and of the Andes mountains that surround the valley.

The first stop is in downtown Medellin, where you will be mesmerized by the magnificent sculptures of maestro Fernando Botero, one of the world's most renowned sculptors. Bring a descent camera as your guides have all taken photography courses and will be delighted to take postcard perfect images of you embracing these larger-than-life sculptures for your memories.

From here the tour continues on foot to really feel the vibe of the downtown area and to experience old colonial churches, plazas, the stunning cultural palace, and much more.

Next, climb aboard the Metrocable, an aerial cable car system, constructed for the purpose of alleviating traffic, improving overall city transport, and accommodating citizens, enabling them to enjoy connectivity from their respective barrios to the metro, and other means of transport. This sturdy, well-maintained cable car will take you to your next destination, the Santo domingo Savio library, a modern edifice partially donated by the King of Spain. You will have the option of getting off here for a walk to see the real life in a comuna with your guide who knows the people and the neighborhood well.

Lastly, guests will be dropped off at their accommodations in the same comfortable vehicle they were collected in at around noon.

    it was expensive in my opinión for what it was, it should include the acuarium and botánical guarden

    The tour was informative, it was fun to ride the Medellin subway, and the cable car was a unique experience that took you approximately 1000 meters above the city for amazing views. You shoukd be prepared though, Arvi Park is not what mist Europeans or North Americans would call a "park", but rather a conservation area. Overall it was an enjoyable tour.

    Me encantó la Comuna 13 y la resiliencia de su gente, para mí el top 10 de Medellín. Es increíble que el segundo lugar más peligroso de Latinoamérica se haya convertido en una atracción turística y que todos sus habitantes trabajen en equipo para que sea un lugar fantásticamente atractivo: arte urbano, trova, baile, comida y mucho más son los atractivos de este colorido y encantador espacio urbano.

    This tour was amazing! it was just me and my husband with our tour guide & we wouldn't have it any other way. I'm not sure if I heard her name correctly so I won't bother to state her name, but our tour guide was knowledgeable and knew how to interact with us. BOOK THE TOUR, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

    Carlos was a very knowledgable guide and, with our tour group being only two, he was able to cater the afternoon to our specific interests! He showed us how to take local transportation and did an excellent job of explaining all the sites we visited and the local culture.
