About the tour

Hi,

My name is Francisco Garzon, from Medellin. I’m in love with this beautiful city, and I want to how you a small part why I’m Love with it, and why are you going to fall in love with it too.

On this tour, I will show you the historical background behind the Botero’s square, as well of Berrio park. Then we'll go to Botero’s museum where you will be able to get to know his watercolor paintings he gave to the museum.

The entrance to the museum has a cost of $18.000 COP (U$6) that will be covered by your own expenses.

The meeting point is in Parque berrio metro station at the south exit (salida sur) in front of Dunkin’ Donuts upstairs.

I can’t wait to see you on this tour with me!

PS: Tips are voluntary and are highly appreciated !

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

It was a great tour, Francisco told us interesting things about the artist and the city and country history - all in two languages for different people in the group. He gave us time to explore the plaza and the museum. Thank you, Francisco!
