Very good tour that more than justifies the price. Juan, our guide, drove us - 2 people - to the destinations in a comfortable car and designed the tour in such a way that we didn't reach Communa 13 at peak times, for example. So there was enough time and leisure to take pictures without crowds and also to drink a coffee. Juan explained - on request also in fluent English - factually, without glorification or trivialization. Data was ready, all questions were answered thoroughly and immediately. Since you are traveling in a small group, individual wishes regarding route, length of stay, etc. can be taken into account. Really recommended!

Really great exploring Comuna 13 and going up the cable car to get a great view of the valley of Medellin. We ended only going to a small indoor market for the exotic fruit portion of the tour, was hoping to see a bigger outdoor market but the fruit tasting was still great. Our guide David was excellent, we had a great day and would recommend this tour!

Thank you Juan and this wonderful and honest tour! We can only recommend the tour and learned a lot, very authentically and appreciatively, openly and critically. The three of us tried everything that was offered, what was interesting was the history behind it and the knowledge of someone who grew up here.

First hand experience to truly obtain another perspective into the world of Pablo Escobar.

All I know that her name was Sara and she made the tour very interesting.Thank you.
