My name is Juan David and I am a historian of the University of Antioquia, so in the tours I seek to explain how the city has evolved, what problems it has and what solutions have been implemented. I also try to show you places outside the tourist circuits that include visits to the high and central districts, viewpoints, library parks, universities, problematic areas of the city, alternative gastronomic centers, etc. Although all this I can adapt to the expectations, places and stories that want to know Medellin.

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!

Angela displayed a whole new side to the city- both literally and with her vast knowledge of its history! She was incredibly helpful with questions and the tour felt like it flew by. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour!
