Tour description

Welcome to Medellín, the city of eternal spring!

Get to know one of the most important and relevant cultures in the history of our country up close: the paisas! And the historic center of Medellín is the best living example we have to show you what we were and who we are.

We will immerse ourselves among its streets and its people to understand the history, development, conflict, and social commitment of an inclusive and innovative Medellín.

From the hand of local Paisa guides, you will understand how we reversed our dark and violent past, product of drug trafficking in the 80's and 90's, into a bright future that made us stronger thanks to the resilient, collective effort and social investment that today allows us to walk, visit and live in the city of “Eternal Spring”.

On this guided tour we will visit must-see places such as:

- Botero Square
- Freedom Square
- Park of Lights
- Barefoot Park
- An authentic market
- And much more!

We will move between passages, we will cross the famous Junín street and we will discover the essence of the center of Medellín.

Do not miss our unique and original tour where we continue to write history together!

We have been traveling for eight months and done a lot of walking tours. My husband commented that he’d rate our tour with Daniel as the best one. It was a great balance of history, local cultural exposure, and a blend of beauty and truth that spoke to the richness of the city and resilience of the people of Medellin.

Daniel was an amazing tour guide! We learned so much about the history of Medellin and loved the immersive experience of walking, learning about the city, and stopping by local vendor stalls. Would recommend to anyone who is visiting!

Davon abgesehen, dass das Zentrum von Medellin nicht viele Sehenswürdigkeiten zu bieten hat, konnte Daniel das Beste aus der Tour machen. Von Anfang an hat er einen super sympathischen Eindruck gemacht und er hat uns während der Tour alle Fragen beantwortet die wir hatten. Wir haben vieles über die Geschichte von Medellin erfahren und sogar noch einiges darüber hinaus. Daniel war ein super Guide und wir würden die Tour mit ihm definitiv weiter empfehlen!
