Awesome bike tour trough a less touristy area of Medellin. Wonderful ride to a viewpoint and then through the city with some stops, where the guide explained lots of historical things. Yan was the perfect guide: enthusiastic, competent and funny! The only negative thing was maybe the size of the group (15 + 2 guides). 10/10 would recommend!

Jan was great! I was expecting a nice ride through the city but was pleased with his knowledge of the history and landmarks. As the others didn’t show up I was his only guest. It felt like a friend was showing me his city. I loved that there were a few times we stopped and had to to explore too.

a great way to see some of the city sites, tour guides were helpful and informative, quite a steep climb at the beginning of the route then virtually flat ride on cycle paths. Good value for money.

It’s really great to explore the city by bike - you see so much more than if you just follow the known tracks of your travel guide.

Good with some climbing. If not a cyclist get an ebike.
