Quality Verified Registered on December 18, 2017

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.

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 !).
