Very nice tour from a young company, started after the COVID period. Mr Santiago was our guide and he did a marvellous job. We’ve seen things we otherwise wouldn’t have. If you’re in Medellin, book this one. You’ll enjoy it. They leave from Botero square, do two versions: English and Spanish with a honest and open conversation about history and future of Medellin at the and of the tour. Well done 👍🏻

The activity was great. The group was very warm and friendly. The guide Walter and the driver Cristian were very professional, they provided a lot of information, attentive to each person's requirements. Excellent. Highly recommended. The guide Paola from Comuna 13 is very kind and committed.

Our tour guide Danny went above and beyond to make sure we had a safe and enjoyable tour. Our group learned so much from Danny, and we're all very grateful for a great tour!

Manuel was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and very animated. He gave a wonderful overview of the history of el Centro, and talked about social issues. A wonderful tour.

Good guide, told us a lot, in our opinion, from our own experience. Recommended!
