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!

I has a great visit with my guide Veronica. We toured the gardens and she was super knowledgeable about plants and the history of the gardens. They have such a nice restaurant in the Gardens...we stopper for cappuccinos. Veronica waa very upbeat and lively and had a fellow passion for plants and birds.
