I am an active person, I love art, languages, music, culture of all worlds and fun. Everything I do with perseverance and respect. If you allow me I can help you to know everything in Medellin, even if you have special affinity for some places or preferred environments I will always be open to locate them, help them and have fun in my city. It is a beautiful city full of colors, flavors and different and surprising places. I am pleasantly committed to changing the mis-sold idea that some people have about my country, although I can not lie and hide the dark and battered part of the war that my country suffers (I will show some sculptures and museums that show figures and faces of the Colombian war) I will show and show the biodiverse culture of Colombia, its beautiful landscapes and its cheerful and enterprising people. I hope to offer you the best of mine, but above all of my country to make you feel welcome and as if you were in your second home

About the tour

The center of Medellín is a place that has space for everyone and everything, architecture, culture and fun in the same area! Everything depends on your tastes, if you are calm and do not want to walk much we can know places, which I call zone 1, such as Plaza de Botero, Rafael Uribe Uribe Culture Palace, the Basilica Menor Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, the Museum of Antioquia, Museum of the Bank of Antioquia and finish in the National Palace architectural jewel of Medellin that became a commercial center, must-see if your time is short but you do not want to leave without knowing. o go to zone 2, we must walk around 10 minutes from zone 1 to be able to observe typical places like the Metropolitan Cathedral and its San Alejo where you can buy handmade souvenirs of Antioquia both located in Simon Bolivar Park, park of historical importance and cultural remembrance by important characters such as the famous writer Fernando Vallejo in his best-known novel the Virgin of the Sicarios. We can also do a quiet walk that

It goes from the Junin passage to the Barrientos house, the current children's reading library, followed by the Palace of Bellas Artes, the Pablo Tobón Uribe Theater, and the House of the Memory Museum where you can see the different perspectives of wars and armed conflicts in Colombia. Zone 3, 15 minutes from the previous area, has places of architectural and cultural importance as the Vásquez building formerly the tallest building in Medellín was restored to teach music, plastic arts, dance, yoga and programs to enjoy in family; the Carré building, old business center and hotel building for the wealthy and restored to be the Secretary of Education of Medellin; The Plaza Cisneros, the EPM Library, Alpujarra Administrative Center, the old railway station, the Water Museum, the Intelligent EPM building, the Pies Descalzos Park, the Metropolitan Theater and the Plaza Mayor de Exposiciones.

This is just a general review of the places we can meet but Medellín has many things to teach many more places and everything depends on your vision, if you want to know places to party and fun in the center I can take you to places historically rumberos, thematic, everything depends on you, you like salsa, reggaeton, tango, electronics, rock or punk in the center of Medellin there is a space for everything and I can teach you from the perspective of a common inhabitant the places you can not miss in a Visit the center of Medellín.

Caro nos pareció una chica muy simpática pero de todos modos le falta informarse acerca de su ciudad. ya que es eso lo que le interesa al turista y ella no estaba a la úlltura de las circunstancias. fue un tour muy improvisado y con muy poca información ya que nos llevo al palacio de la cultura y nunca había entrado allí, así con muchos lugares más. cabe destacar que nos dijo que era uber y que nos podía llevar al aeropuerto. para nuestra sorpresa cuando nos pasó a buscar por el hotel fue acompañada de un hombre y dijo que era su jefe. ella fue de acompañante y el hombre manejaba. nunca antes nos aclaró de que iba a pasar con él y que ella no manejaba.

también cabe aclarar que habíamos confirmado el tour a las 13 30hs y recién llego al tour 14 45hs. no fue puntual y el tour fue de muy mala calidad.

es cero recomendable como guía pero se podría juntar en un bar a hablar de la vida con ella.
