Took the Turibus in Medellin. The bus was a double decker and did not have the prerecorded tour where you could select English or Spanish over the headphones. Instead, the hostess narrated the tour in Spanish only; if i wanted an English speaking tour, i had to wait for the next bus (without guarantee that I'd get an English speaking... More

I just wanted to add a few things. First of all, if you want to stay for an hour or more at all the locations, then you'll have to get the 2 day pass. However, I don't think all the sites on the tour are worth a full hour. We started at Parque del Poblado and at the second stop... More

Let me preface our review with the fact that we seldom use tourist city tour buses. This tour takes 3.5 hours - stopping at 6 places for a maximum of 10 minutes each ( depending on traffic ) so the remaining 2.5 hours is spent driving the city traffic. It operates as a hop-on hop-off so the few minutes is... More

The city tour takes about 3 1/2 hours and introduces you to some of the main attractions. The bus stops for a few minutes at each location which is enough time to decide if you want to make a longer visit. The bus operates on a hop-on hop-off basis so you can make a longer visit and catch another bus.... More

The website for Turibus needs a little update. Most city tours are now step on step off. We stayed on the bus for the entire loop which takes about 3 1/2 hrs. You get enough time at each location to get a quick view and decide if you want to return on your own. That's what these buses should be.... More

This is truly the best way to see all the attractions that the city of Medellin has to offer. We did this tour as we only had a few days in Medellin and really wanted to see it all. Once the bus arrives at every location, it stays there for about 10 minutes. Those that are interesting in the stop... More

We really enjoy the city tour in a double decker. Stops in interesting places and you can freely get on and off according schedule and route

We were in the city for a couple of days and with the Turibus we got to see all the Christmas lights. The guide is excellent as she knows a lot of interesting facts about Medellin's history. They gave us a poncho, some traditional snacks and aguardiente. The best place to sit in the bus is at the left side.

My wife and I took the special Navidad evening bus tour from Parque Poblado in Medellin. We throughly enjoyed the experience. The routing chosen took us to many parks and areas of Medellin, Evigado, Itagui, and other barrios all of which were festiive and brightly lit with elaborate displays. The vibe of the crowds was great, a holiday atmosphere indeed.... More
