Esteban was wonderful! I wasn't super excited about this tour, but went because my husband really wanted to go. It turned out to be so much better than I expected. Esteban knew Everything about the history and shared different perspectives of the story, which I appreciated. I learned a lot and all of the stops were very informational. It also gave us a chance to see parts of Medellin we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Definitely recommend!

Excellent guide, nice driver, a well developed telling of an amazing and complex story. Good use of time and very interesting conversation with the guide.
