      Highly recommended Communa 13 tour
      We had a great time. CJ was a really really good tour guide. Think it’s the best walking tour we’ve ever been on. We’ve never seen anything like communa 13 and it’s honestly amazing seeing the history, hope, and sense of community. Thoroughly recommend

      Awesome tour
      The tour itself was perfect! Met all of out expectations, the tourguide Gustavo was also very attentive at all times. Definitely worth it! I do have to mention that when booking they told us we would be getting pictures from the tour later on, but me and my friend never got our pictures which is a bit disappointing

      BIG MONEY GRAB/ TOURIST TRAP
      I did this tour because I wanted to learn more about the story of Pablo Escobar from a local perspective. I am Colombian and live in bogota and I am familiar with the story. THIS IS A TOURIST TRAP!!! I was VERY disappointed with the whole experience. First of all the places you visit, edificio Monaco, Pablo’s old jail (which is a regular church is bad shape now) and the cemetery are underwhelming. There is nothing special or educative to see, it is a big money grab. The only thing that you are really paying for is ride bus and again, the locations have been renovated and there is nothing special to see. The only place I recommend is Monaco and you can easily get there by car. Our tour guide, Jose Abreu was not engaging and skipped a lot of facts. He rushed the tour and the way he told the story was very wrong. I asked him a few questions and he answered very rudely and in one occasion he even called me out in front of everyone and told me I wasn’t paying attention and that clearly I was not listening. He was clearly upset because I asked him to include parts of the story he was skipping. He went a bit far in terms of talking badly about of Lara Bonilla who was killed by Pablo in a horrible way. He gave his personal opinion about how he deserved it, which is so UNPROFESSIONAL!!! I think this company is greedy and prefers to sell a cool tour rather than educate the people and give a meaningful and insightful story about Pablo. Do not waste your time, we spent 6 hours doing the sites and driving. Use your time and money better in Medellin, this tour is not worth it! NO DOT USE THIS COMPANY

      Awesome ATV tour in Medellín!
      Another awesome ATV tour that was our first highlight in our Medellín trip. Gustavo, Duban, and Martin were our lead guides for this ATV tour and they did a wonderful job giving us a pleasant and memorable experience so big thanks to them! The tour was going to go regardless of rain or shine but thankfully it was sunny and clear! They gave us a great starting tutorial like run on the ATV before we went on to the route. The route was beautiful and pretty relaxing, it brought us up into the mountains a little bit where there were rain forests. We made a stop halfway to see a waterfall and eat a local Colombian fruit before heading back towards the start point. The ATVs worked great and they provided us with helmets and boots for in case there was a lot of mud or rain. Overall we enjoyed this ATV Tour in Medellin and we highly recommend it! - Nolan

      Outstanding experience!
      We had an amazing time! The tour guide was great and he made sure everything ran smoothly. Trying the fresh local fruit during the waterfall stop was our favorite part. Highly recommend.

      Highly recommend Communa 13 tour
      The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his neighborhood. He shared the history of Comuna 13, from its dark past to its bright future. We saw amazing street art, met some of the local artists. The tour was eye-opening and inspiring. I left Comuna 13 with a newfound appreciation for the strength and resilience of the community. I highly recommend taking a tour with a local guide - it's the best way to experience Comuna 13 and learn about its incredible story!

      Laura helped us even when we were arriving late and explain the history of Comuna 13 with so much detail that was imposible to not be sensitive

      Comuna 13 tour: A gripping and eye opening tour through the vibrant and (nowadays) safe neighbourhood of Comuna 13.
      Nothing compares to walking around the neighbourhood and hearing first hand from someone who grew up in the barrio through good times and bad. Laura really made the tour special. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to hear a side of Medellin's history that goes way beyond what you might see on Neflix.

      Great way to escape the city
      An amazing experience. Definitely need to be in decent shape if you choose the "extreme" hiking option. The guides and "Sasha" are great.

      The Tour was well organised and the Tour guide was very great. She knows so much about the history and life of the residents. The view up in communa 13 was amazing. It was interesting to see how they build the neighborhood.

      Great tour of Pablo's effects on Columbia given by a local
      Our tour guide, Daniel, was amazing! Nothing beats a tour given by someone who lives in the community. Daniel answered ALL my questions (no matter how unsavory), and gave a great education on the brutal effects of Escobar's reign in Medellin. Pace was easy, with lots of time for pictures, etc, and I wouldn't change a thing about it.

    Juliana was great, very accommodating. Transportation from and to your hotel is included via private chauffeur (I don't know if taxi is the right word to use), and you paraglide over Medellin. Recommend taking dramamine before hand. They'll ask you if you're feeling ok when you're descending, and if so then they'll do some near upside-down acrobatics with you which is pretty neat if your stomach can handle it, otherwise they just take it easy on the way back down. If you don't have a gopro you can rent one and they'll give you the micro SD card when you're finished.

    Highly recommended!

    I did the paragliding tour which was great and the graffiti walking tour straight after. Since I was late coming back from paragliding Julia rang me while on the way back to tell me to get off the bus and meet the rest of the group so I wouldn’t miss out. She gave me exact directions and instructions on what to do how to get the train and where and stayed online on WhatsApp until I was reunited. Made me feel very safe and comfortable in a city I’m not familiar with! And the tour itself was excellent too. Laura is very passionate and knowledgeable and kept checking up on me since I felt sick while paragliding which was also greatly appreciated. Would definitely recommend!

    Loved the paragliding! It was so relaxing, the view was scenic. It was the first time for my boyfriend who is afraid of heights, the instructor put him at ease so my boyfriend had a great time. That’s him in the photo;-)

    Booked this paragliding trip after a great experience with the same company for the Guatape day trip. Juliana made the booking process super seamless - she helped arrange the private transfer (to and from my hotel), provided link for online payment and promptly answered some side questions I had. I paid 40k pesos to rent their go-pro; they gave me a microSD afterwards to take home.
    Our private transfer driver, Favio, went above and beyond - he walked all the way up to the paragliding location and took videos of us taking off and landing!! My fly-mate, Antonio, was very professional and tried to point out places of interest for me - wish I’d spoken better Spanish to converse with him more in the air!

    Overall, excellent experience - thank you for the accommodation, Tours Guatape! Would do it again in a hearbeat.
