Daniela and Julian are fabulous guides, very flexible and knowledgeable! Daniela's English is excellent and I got to speak Spanish to get more practice, great fun. After a brief consultation with her boss, we changed the program. I can only recommend instead of looking at the Gran of a drug dealer to visit the amazing Comuna 13 and the amazing graffiti, like we did! Thank you Medellín Travels and Get Your Guide!

We’ve had an amazing day with Daniela and Heime. Both are very nice, friendly and charming person. Daniela was an excellent guide with lots of knowledge and expertise. A guide with those 2 is a must when you’re traveling to Medellin! Thanks again for this awesome day!

The tour was the perfect blend of city + Pablo Escobar! It's not easy to find a combo tour and when strapped for time this is the perfect blend. Would (and have) highly recommend!!

Very good tour. Operator Julio was very nice and shared relevant information about Paisa customs and cultures. 100% recommended

Carlos was extremely friendly, very educated and accommodating!! Unreservedly recommend Carlos as a city guide
