Full description
Start with a pickup at your accommodations in Medellín, where you’ll meet a private guide with a new, comfortable vehicle. The first stop of the day is El Centro in Medellín: visit Botero Plaza to see a series of 23 sculptures by the local artist Fernando Botero, and tour the historic center on foot. Take in Medellín’s gracious plazas, colonial-era churches that were built in the 1600's, and architectural highlights. Jump on board on an aerial cable car that hovers over the neighborhood and see one of a kind panoramic views from the top. Next you get to experience the most magnificent street art that Medellín has to offer at the Comuna 13 barrio on the far west side of town. Check out the colorful graffiti and landmark outdoor escalators. Guests will have fun and be safe, as we know the residents, artists, and neighborhood well. Last guests will be dropped of at their hotel in Medellin.

I had the tour with Carlos. First we drove to the Botero Plaza with 23 skulptures of this great artist. After that we had a break with Mega Cholado which tastes really good. The second stop was at the metro cable where we took one stop. At the end there as the formerly etremely dangerous commune 13 which was freed many years ago. It was overcrowded with tourist but still very beautiful with the paintings, small shops, a beautiful view on Medellin and the escalator over 348m in 6 steps.

The tour was perfectly organized, Daniela our guide was very personable and gave us a good understanding of what we saw with many details. Of course you can also explore Medellin on your own, but we recommend a tour. Some things about this extraordinary city are simply not self-explanatory...
