Full description
Explore Medellín from a local perspective on a private guided tour tailor-made to your likings. See the main attractions of the city, explore downtown, and take the metro or the metro cable to park Arvi. Your guide will happily suggest the most famous routes that vary according to tastes but feel free to suggest adaptations. The most common trails include a day to see the Botero statues, Museo de Antioquia, and a walk along the downtown area followed by a visit to Pueblito Paisa to have the most amazing views of the city. Another very common route is riding the metro to Botero park, the botanical garden, and the library of Santo Domingo Savio followed by a cable car ride up to Parque Arvi for a nature adventure. Coordinate the construction of the tour with your guide or get in touch before hand. Every tour will include suggestions of local dishes, handcrafted arts, goods or other things you are looking for.

Our tour guide was David. He gave us the most amazing tour of Medellin. Not only the beautiful spots, but also showed us the dark sides of the city. This was very interesting, though tragic as well. We drove the cable car and took te metro while mingling with the locals. We went up the escalators in Communa 13 and met some locals for drinks and a dance. It was so funny! David gave his absolute best and we can only recommend him a lot. Gracias

For us, the details behind many things we knew about, but did not understand. Enjoyed the way a simple fuel stop turned into a real learning experience with respect to LNG (air gas). Also the private tour being much more flexible than many typical guided tours.

As newcomers to Medellin and only a day to explore, we weren’t sure how to see the highlights. Our guide, Juan, came to the rescue, taking us on a fantastic tour, sharing his story with us, and making sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Can’t recommend him enough!!
