Full description
Your licensed and fluent tour guide will pick you up at your hotel or apartment in a new comfortable vehicle. You will be transported to the metro station where you will enjoy a smooth ride along with pleasant views of the city, the river, and of the Andes mountains that surround the valley.

The first stop is downtown Medellin, where you will be mesmerized by the magnificent sculptures of maestro Fernando Botero, one of the world's most renowned sculptors. There is no cost to view these stunning statues. Bring a decent camera and your guides will be delighted to take postcard perfect images of you embracing these larger than life sculptures for your memories.

From here continue on foot to really feel the vibe of the downtown area and experience old colonial churches, plazas, the stunning cultural palace, and much more.

Next, jump on board the Metro cable (aerial cable car) which was constructed for the purpose of alleviating traffic, improving overall city transport and accommodating citizens, enabling them to enjoy connectivity from their respective barrios to the metro, and other means of transport.

This sturdy and well maintained cable car will take you to your next destination, the Santo Domingo Savio library, a modern edifice partially donated by the King of Spain.
You have the option of getting off here for a walk to see the real life in a comuna or barrio with your guide who knows the people and the neighborhood well.

Last, guests will be dropped off at their hotel or place of stay in the same comfortable vehicle.
