Great way to see the city

Very cheap and easy way to get views over the city. Very frequent service. We had a guide which helped as not a tourist service

The cablecar is already included in your metro ticket (except for the tourist line to Parque Arví). And this system of public transport is a great idea - for locals and tourists alike. It is clean and organized, and the views are great. I wish we had such cable cars in my hometown.

My first day in Medellin I decided to go to parque arvi. I took the cable cars. It was very scenic and I met a nice Colombian family that invited me to picnic with them. It was safe and nice for walking.

If I had to do it again I would have just stopped at the last station before Arvi not much to see past that.

a must see! Probably my favorite thing in Medellin. Unique and beyond description. It is inexpensive as well. I dont suggest going into the barrios unless a tour guide is with you.

For the cost of a Metro ticket, about $1.00 US., the cable car is a wonderful way to get a bird's eye view of the steep neighbourhoods that crawl up the sides of the Medellin river valley. Street life from above, rooftop art, long views up and down the valley, and a comfortable ride all add up to thirty minutes... More

Riding the metro cable is a wonderful experience. You get a beautiful view of the city up and down, a view of the barrios, and a great idea of how wonderful the public transit system is in Medellin!

Definitely has great views as you get higher. We made friends with some lovely tourists/locals here and spent that day and the next together. Also, it goes over the poorer neighbours which is eye opening

We started our cable car journey downtown. The views of the city are stunning. The car themselves are modern and very clean. We got off at the last stop and walked around the neighborhood. It’s clear from the housing that the people area don’t have a lot of money but everyone seemed fairly happy going about the business .It felt... More
