We had a group of 7 in a private tour with Silvio and “the white beast” (his van). Our experience could not have been any better! I would highly recommend Silvio and this experience to anyone and everyone!! He was so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He also helped us with recommendations for the remainder of our stay. His English was perfect and he had a great sense of humor. On top of it all, a member of our group was celebrating their birthday and Silvio went above and beyond and even set up a little surprise with a cake and balloons for her at a local shop! I don’t think I can say enough kind words for how awesome our experience with Silvio was! Thank you for making our trip so memorable!!

What a way to start off a trip! Our guide, Silvio, made the entire trip worth it. He was friendly, funny, knowledgeable and everything you would want from a tour guide. He went ABOVE and BEYOND what we expected. The Pablo Escobar Tour was very cool, especially if you've watched the Netflix show Narcos. La Catedral provides a great overview of Medellin. Climbing Piedra del Penol provided another beautiful view of Colombia. Silvio provided such a great experience and stayed in contact throughout our entire trip (even outside Medellin) to ensure everything went well. He recommended other tours and linked us to other individuals to get to and from places. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour or a tour with this provider. Get Silvio if you can. Guatape is a beautiful city as well, I wish we could have spent a bit more time in the city to explore.

This was a great start to all of our first time in Colombia. Our guide Silvio was our highlight of the trip and made sure we had THE BEST DAY EVER. His enthusiasm and knowledge made the day even better than we could have imagined. The Pablo Escobar sights were very interesting and Guatape was simply incredible. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Medellin.

The highlight of our day was seeing the local art in Communa 13. There is art, music, drinks and dancing!! Also the views are remarkable. As far as the Pablo stops, I think it really depends on your tour guide. Unfortunately, we had a rookie. It was his first day doing this Pablo tour and we got turned around quite a bit trying to find the jail. As huge Narcos fans, we wanted more story telling and history regarding Pablo. He was a nice guy, but overall we wanted more.
