What an utterly amazing tour! The private tour with Epic Tours Medellín is the way to go! Today’s tour was of Comuna 13. Manny was my guide and took me through the city of Medellín explained the history of the city, their on going social programs, and with the bonus of sampling local cuisine along the way. Next up a ride on the metro cable which was thrilling and then on to Comuna 13. It was like exploring with an old friend. Comuna 13 was the crown jewel of this experience. Finding out about the violent past and the significance behind the artwork in the murals and listening to the explanation. How the people of the community embraced change and created a “new Medellín”! It is something I will always treasure. Also, being able to interact with the residents was a fabulous treat. This is a tour you must undertake if you come to Medellín. When I come back I will certainly do this tour again.
This tour was something that I really wanted to do while visiting Medellin. It started with a relaxing boat ride at the lake, next, a visit to the rock at El Peñol where we climbed the 750 steps to a beautiful view, then a delicious lunch where we sit overlooking the beautiful scenery. After that, we went to Guatapé for a quick walk around the beautiful town. The tour itself was good as we visited beautiful places but I was expecting more information from the tour guide as it seemed more like a driver than a tour guide. Also, I would have preferred a longer time to explore in Guatapé as the time spent was short and accelerated.
The views from the top El Peñol rock are beautiful. We climbed the 750 steps with our kids and it was totally worth it. Our guide, Luis Fernando was great; knowledgeable, with great energy and great sense of humor. Don’t forget to grab some “pan de queso” in the drive up to Guatapé. The town of Guatapé is pretty cool. It was nice to walk around the town square full of crafts and local shops and bars.
This was a great tour. Jorge was our guide and he honestly made our trip to Medellin amazing. Lots of information and stories from someone who lived it. He made an extra effort to make sure our tour was phenomenal and did not disappoint. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend!!
The tour was the perfect blend of city + Pablo Escobar! It's not easy to find a combo tour and when strapped for time this is the perfect blend. Would (and have) highly recommend!!
