Lina was very helpful when we needed to change our tour from the afternoon to the morning. Carlos was also very friendly but I was kind of disappointed due to the following: - Carlos was the guide and the driver, so we spent good portions of the tour going from parking lots to

The good: Responsive to emails and timely with pick up and instructions The bad: While we had a decent time touring with Alex, we were bothered by a few things. The depth of his information was limited. Not a lot of information was relayed to us about history, politics, and

You never took a tour with us period. We have NO record of you doing a tour in 2019 or 2020 and you never replied our message to identify yourself as a legit customer. Anybody looking at your review can see that your account seems suspiciously very new, in fact it was only created this year 2020, with 2 different names and you only have one review this one this is very strange. Did you really took a tour with us? in fact for your record the person that you mentioned in your long review has been on Vacation in Asia so it's impossible for him to be in two places at the same time. You didn't took a tour with us period!!

Very informative while getting lots of physical exercise. George was an excellent “ambassador” for Medellin & thankfully spoke excellent English. The van was clean & comfortable, it would have held additional passengers but we were the only 2 on the tour. I would recommend this

Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our guide George and our driver Gustavo. I am more than elated that you guys had a spectacular time. Also, I appreciate you making emphasis that we speak "fluent" English, this facilitates the core structure of the conversation and enables way more dialogue to be created in a smooth manner without playing charades or guessing games. We love and appreciate our clients dearly. Thanks again! Alex from

Our Tour Guide told us that Parque Arvi was not included in our Medellin City Tour, however we check again the details of the tour and it clearly shows that Parque Arvi was included.

You know very well that you booked the city tour without the tour upgrade. You wanted a free tour without paying tripadvisor an additional fee. This is unethical. You tried to induce our tour guide to give you a free upgrade, remember? Did you forget that our tour guide called the office and we spoke to you, reminding you that you did not pay for an upgrade, plus we sent you another copy of the inclusions and spoke to you on the chat, we sent you another copy while you were on the tour so you could see it in fine print, (even though you had already received that when you did the booking and were well aware), remember on the phone you said "Ok, I know", and you were fine with that??? It makes no sense to be incoherent and go back on your word. On the booking details, booking information, and booking Inclusions, it specifies in both English and Spanish clearly stipulating in detail that it is an upgrade that is NOT included in the normal tour. We are straight shooters that have the absolute highest ethics. What you are doing is shameful, petty, and embarrassing. Your review will not affect us.
