Your licensed and knowledgeable tour guide will pick you and your party up at your hotel.You will 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 good camera, because your guides have taken photography courses and will be delighted to take postcard perfect images of you embracing these large sculptures for your memories.

From here we continue on foot to really feel the vibe of the downtown area and experience rich historical content from a true certified, native English-speaking guide, regarding old colonial churches, plazas, the stunning cultural palace, and much more.

    Increíble experiencia de sensaciones en los distintos lugares que hemos recorrido.Agregamos el tour de los graffiti en comuna 13, a este tour, en donde las personas que nos acompañaron no fueron solo guía (Daniela ) y conductor (Don Jaime ) solamente, fueron unos amigos de Medellín que hicieron que estos días lo pasáramos de maravilla entendiendo su cultura y todos los datos históricos en cada uno de los spots que visitamos Quiero destacar la calidez y la increíble predisposición para solucionar cualquier pedido o necesidad nuestra en estos días,tanto de Daniela, Don Jaime y Lina (Propietaria de la agencia ) Super recomendable

    We took the private Medellin City, Pueblito Paisa and Pablo Escobar Tour in early September 2018 to cover some of the highlights of Medellin as well as the story of Pablo Escobar, who had such a great influence on the recent history of the city. We were picked up on time by our young but very knowledgeable guide Pedro and our fantastic driver in a comfortable van. We went first to take a ride with the spectacular cable car in Santo Domingo up to the Spanish Library, which unfortunately is closed due to structural problems. We saw the community over which Escobar had great influence. The views from the cable car are spectacular. We took the modern Metro to Downtown and visited there different points of interest, including the Cathedral and Plaza Botero. Afterwards we went to Pueblito Paisa, had a great lunch and enjoyed the great views over the city. The rest of the tour was about Pablo Escobar, visiting the house he was shot, the cemetery with his grave and that of other family members and his house, which we had a chance to see two weeks before it’s destruction. Altogether it was an extremely satisfying tour which we can only highly recommend. Many thanks to Pedro for all his explanations and stories about the city and Escobar, we definitely learned a lot of new information. The right way to get to know this fascinating city.
