Went to buy a ticket in the morning only to be told that they were sold out for the day. Buy a ticket in advance to avoid this... Apparently it is too difficult to publish this on the website.

We got 2 day tickets. This is a wonderful hop on, hop off bus. They stop 10 -15 minutes at each stop. For some stops that's enough to take pictures and get back on. For others, you want to spend at least 1-2 hours at a stop. When you do that, just check the schedule so you'll meet the bus... More

Due to the traffic in the city, it takes the bus a long time to get from one stop to another. The metro is a much more efficient way to get around the city to see all the sites. Once the bus reaches a specific stop, they only wait at the stop for 20 minutes. The next bus will come... More

I did the Turibus tour just to make it easier to see all of the highlights of the city. Basically it takes from place to place with 20-30 minutes to look around on your own. In between there is briefly narration of the sights. This is a good blend of a guided tour and tour on your own. The price... More

A day-long guided tour to Guatape that includes Visit to the giant rock (Peñol, ticket not included), the Old town (a reconstruction of the old Peñol town), a Boat ride around the Guatape lake and a guided visit through the Guatape town. Fantastic value, perhaps the best way to enjoy this can't miss attraction.

This a great way to get an overview of the city. Stopped at most places on tour from 15 minutes to 1/2 hour so you could case out the stop and decide whether to stay or not. At Estadio we decided to go to the Metrocable. Very easy to do,three stops from Estadio station on the cleanest transit we have... More

We just did this tour today and it was great way to get a feel for the city and check out a few of its attractions. Best to do it as early as possible - I think the first pick up is at 9am - so you can have more time to hop off and view a museum/attraction and skip... More

We decided to take this tour to get a feel of the city. The bus we were on had only spanish and we would have to wait an hour for one with some english. I understand we are in a spanish speaking country but the buses should all have audio headphones that can be switched to the desired language. The... More

We were in Medellin at their busiest season, December, the world goes there to see the Christmas lights. There were 6 of us which includes 2 kids under 12 and my mother 83. For our needs this was the way to go. So now understand what the service is, this bus stops ONLY in locations that are closed to very... More
