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.

About the tour

Dare to rediscover the city.

Tours include: Comuna 13, urban art, Metrocable, Málaga lounge and incredible viewpoints.​

Postscript: the tours are carried out under the modality of Walking Tour, under no circumstance is private transportation handled in this modality (please if you do not like to walk do not take this tour). In addition, the days with too much rain will not be carried out the guide, because it would be impossible to mobilize, only alternative activities will be carried out as far as possible, although there is always the possibility of reprogramming the route. We appreciate your understanding.

We had such a great time with juan visiting the comunidad 13, so interesting ! he explains very well the history, the cultural and urban issues of this special district (all in spanish, so if you don't speak the language it won't be easy). he's is very nice and flexible. we definitely recommend this tour if you want to get off the beaten track and see a less touristic part of medellin (but so much more interesting than el poblado !).
