Medellín: Private City Tour with Metrocable and Comuna 13

1. Medellín: Private City Tour with Metrocable and Comuna 13

Get an insight into Colombia's troubled past on a private guided tour of the formerly dangerous district of Comuna 13 in Medellín.   Discover a replica of an old village at Pueblito Paisa on Nutibara Hill, and get stunning views over the rooftops from one of the city's few conserved ecosystems. Make your way to Comuna 13 to learn how the most notorious neighborhood in the country has reinvented itself. See stunning examples of street art and graffiti that puts the political and socio-economic story of the area into context. Once the center of the gang wars and guerilla activity, the area has been transformed by the local community with the help of government projects such as a giant escalator that runs up the hill. Visit the Botanical Garden and other sustainable city projects such as the charismatic Park of Desires, and the iconic sculptures by Fernando Botero on Botero Plaza.

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.

Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar and City Tour

3. Medellín: Private Pablo Escobar and City Tour

Following your pick-up at your hotel at 9:00 am go to the metro station to take a smooth ride with pleasant views of the city, river and surrounding Andes Mountains and valley. Head to downtown Medellín to marvel at the magnificent sculptures by Fernando Botero. Take souvenir photos with the help of your guide. Then, continue on foot to experience the true vibe of the city and learn its rich history from your native English-speaking guide. Get information about the old colonial churches, city plazas and the Palace of Culture. Next, board the Metrocable for an aerial ride to Spain Library Park in Santo Domingo Savio. Donated by the King of Spain, the modern edifice provides breathtaking panoramas of the city. Continue to the picturesque town of Pueblito Paisa to discover what Medellín looked like in the past at a replica of an Antioquian settlement. Get more captivating views of the city from the top of Cerro Nutibara. Admire Pueblito Paisa's lovely church, charming museum, cute shops, and handicraft items for sale. Taste the succulent cuisines of Colombia during your lunch break, and sample savory dishes from the Paisa region in one of the many restaurants. End your Medellín experience by exploring the life and times of Pablo Escobar. Hear about real-life events involving the notorious drug lord, who went from being a common car thief to the second richest man during his lifetime (after the Sultan of Brunei). Revered by many as the "Colombian Robin Hood" for building hospitals, schools, churches, soccer fields and a barrio (neighborhood) for the underprivileged, he was equally hated by rivals such as the Cali cartel and "Los Pepes" ("Persecuted by Pablo Escobar"). Investigate the facts behind the myths and mixed messages from expert guides who will provide true information and some stories that you won't hear anywhere else. Learn the story in a non-biased manner so that you can formulate your own opinion. Then, benefit from a drop off at your hotel or accommodation at the end of the day.

based on 35 reviews

The tour was above and beyond what we expected! Tour guide, Luis was very friendly, patient (we took a lot of pictures and did a little shopping) and made our trip very enjoyable! The tour lasted a little more than what was estimated in the description but we didn’t mind at all. He was very thoughtful in taking our group places a little out of the normal tour and met some of his friends around Comuña 13. Everyone is as very friendly and welcoming!

Luis was our guide and he was incredible! He had so much to share about the history and answered all our questions. He was very friendly, flexible, & accommodating to what we wanted our tour experience to be.

We come from Puerto Rico to meet. Héctor was our guide, he was always ready for everything we wanted. A great person and a great guide. We have loved this tour.

Luis was such a cool dude - a relaxed informative tour. Everyone seems to know him. Great guy

The experience and treatment was excellent. Our guide Julián exceeded our expectations.
