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.
