Our guide Carolina was great! A passionate local with good perspective, and also perfect English. She told great stories and provided a good review of Medellin's recent history, along with useful tips for tourists (like how to buy tickets to the football game!). I highly recommend this tour for newcomers to the city.

If you know when you'll be arriving, I recommend booking this in advance for your first day, as we found the trips filled up.

Hernan was an amazing guide - probably the best we've ever had! Nothing beats sharing real memories of growing up in a troubled city, then witnessing its transformation. He really helped usunderstand and appreciate what Medellin was like before and what it is now - still a little bit rough around the edges, but full of optimism! Absolutely recommend this tour to everyone!

I did the free walking tour with milo as a guide. Although the tour takes up about 4 hours, time really flies. A lot is told, but it’s definitely not boring. Medellin has a very dramatic past, but you really get the feeling of a positive future. Definitely take a tour with real city tours in the beginning of your trip, they will give you a lot of tips for the rest of your stay in Medellin

The walking tour of Medellin is a must if you are visiting the city. Our guide Monsa was fantastic. As she's from Medellin she told us a lot of really interesting stories and tips about the city, history, culture, language etc. Definitely opens your eyes and mind!
