          City tour
          The city tour with David was an incredible experience. He was very flexible with our time and took us to the spots we have never seen before. David was very kind, courteous and knowledgeable of every place we went. What made this tour great was David’s experience and flexibility for us, if we were tired he would find a small place to enjoy a beer or water and brought us to try Colombian style smoothies which were refreshing and fantastic!

          Amazing food tour!
          Our food tour was an amazing experience. All because David made it wonderful. We went to the Plaza Minorista tried a bunch of different kinds of exotic and delicious fruits. David was very kind and informative with all the information needed. We also went to Envigado to have a yummy topical Colombian lunch. Not only was an amazing tour but also have the opportunity to explore the beautiful city.

          Would definitely do it again.
          Booked a very last minute tour and they were very accommodating . I was mostly interested in the Griselda Blanco sites so Daniel the tour guide was able to tweak the tour a bit to visit some of the places relevant to the Griselda Blanco story. Daniel was very informative and definitely knew the history very well.

          An excellent Pablo Escobar tour with our guide, Daniel
          Daniel provided an excellent tour for our group. He had a profound knowledge of the history of Medellin as it relates to Pablo Escobar. There were 4 stops and all of them were fascinating and great picture spots. Daniel was down to earth and highly relatable and made us feel apart of the culture. He even gave us time to have authentic Columbia cuisine in the Pablo Escobar neighborhood. Would recommend 100% thank you!!

          Amazing City Tour
          Joe was the best tour guide we’ve had! His vibrant personality & knowledge of Medellin made our experience unforgettable. He took us to some amazing spots, including Comuna 13, the Botanical Gardens, and Plaza Botero. We also took the metro-cable, which led us to a beautiful nature reserve. We truly got to see the city like locals. Would highly recommend!

          Worth visiting
          So glad we got to see this with our own eyes and to hear stories of the transformation of Comuna 13. There was plenty of walking up slopes, so the escalators we're a nice change. Kind of like a metro station with no trains

          BEST TOUR EVER WITH JOE
          We had an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING time with JOE POSADA as our tour guide!!! He made the trip SO much FUN, and translated seamlessly between English and Spanish. The drive to the Horse ranch was beautiful and Joe shared history of the area along the way. Once we arrived at the horse ranch we were greeted by the sweetest family and so many beautiful, MAJESTIC, well cared for horses. We set out on our tour along the countryside and through mountains and saw so many gorgeous birds, flowers, eucalyptus, bamboo and got to experience the fresh mountain air with such great company. The VIEWS at the mountain top were stunning and we grabbed a drink at the local spot on top of the mountain. Joe was the highlight of the tour. He made the experience so memorable. It is a time we will always cherish. We enjoyed it so much we booked another tour specifically with JOE to visit Guatape. Joe is incredible and the horse tour was such a beautiful way to experience the Colombian countryside. HIGHLY recommend and ask for JOE!!!! You will be SO happy you did!!

          Personable, ease, and memorable!
          I cannot recommend this experience enough! Our guide, Joe Posada, was extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and intentional in curating our experience. Full day event and Joe made sure we had time to prioritize everything we wanted to do. He knew so much about Colombia history as well as specific history to Guatape. This experience made getting to and from Medellin to Guatape easy and seamless. The drive was beautiful as well as Joe found and recommended incredible food spots for breakfast and lunch on the journey. This way of experiencing Guatape made the whole activity very personable and enjoyable to see things at our leisure. Book with Medellín City Services and even better if you can get Joe as your guide!

          Authentic, intentional, peaceful, and an experience you will treasure
          Absolutely incredible experience! What made it truly special was our guide Joe Posada. He picked us up and took us to the location and helped with translating since we only speak English. He’s a joy to be around and went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience, so much so that we ended up booking another (different) tour later in the week because the impression he made on us. The staff at the horse farm were also extremely friendly, accommodating, and welcoming. You could tell the horses were well cared for. The whole experience beginning to end was very thoughtful, intentional, and the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend this experience or any others by Medellín City Services ESPECIALLY if you get the option and privilege to be shown around by Joe!!! He will make it a memorable experience you’ll never forget while sharing his wealth of knowledge about Colombia. Truly a gem

        We started a tour earlier on a request of our tour guide, which was a great idea because we could enjoy amazing views from el Peñol rock with moderate croud and avoid very long queues which appeared when we were leaving.
        Pay attention on what is included in the tour and do not count on a guide. We had to pay the entrance fee to the rock on our own.

        Cristian was our guide and did a great job. Was very punctual and informative. Getting to see Guatape was amazing. One of the most beautiful places on Earth. It is a heckuva climb. We went on a boat ride and that was also worth it. Cristian knew all of the best shops and restaurants. Definitely worth it.

        What a great day.

        Daniel picked us up at our hotel on time, drove us in a comfortable SUV to see everything we could have possibly wanted, and was knowledgeable, friendly, and just a great time. These guys handled everything- start to finish- for us, and we got to see/hike/experience everything we wanted to. A really great day- and Daniel was the perfect tour guide.

        Thank you Andres for a great tour. Andres arrived at 8 am on the dot as arranged and drove us with great care and attention, in rainy conditions, to El Peñol where two members of our party climbed the rock and the third was kept entertained with local history, by Andres. Then on to Guadapè where Andres showed us the sights while filling us in on local lore. He brought us to a good restaurant which served local food at a good price, then on to the lake where we enjoyed a boat tour, all the while Andres filled us in on Pablo Escobar's connection with the lake. Andres also pointed out local landmarks. Andres approach is calm, measured and informed. He was a wonderful companion for the day and navigated the 6 lane highway with aplomb, before dropping us home. Thank you Andres.

        The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Sebastian, was very knowledgable, kind, and of course, funny. He explained the history of the area, quizzed us on our Spanish (we now know the words for many more vegetables), and showed us the best places to eat. He even took a drone video of us climbing the rock! Would definitely recommend this tour to all interested!!!!
