“One of the best walking tours i've been in”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

I took this walking tour because i like to know the cities' history and undertand the origins of ita culture. I have taken this kind if walking tours in other cities of Europe, such as Paris, edimburg, berlin, rome, hamburg, among many others, and i can say that this is one of the best if not the best. The guide's enthusiasm and passion fir his own city, telling the country and city's history are just outstanding. He is able to keep your attention during the 4 hours of the tour, and you never realize that 4 hours have passed. You get to know Medellin's downtown, which is not the most beautiful place in the world, but is full of history and contradictions.
I truly recommend that every tourist and even locals take this tour, which will open your eyes about the real medellin.

“Fantastic Tour Guide”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Pablo is incredibly enthusiastic about his city and that enthusiasm is infectious as you wander the streets of Medellin for 3 - 4 hours (the time flies by) listening to animated, fascinating stories about the history of the city and Colombia. I highly recommend that all visitors to Medellin do this tour....simply brilliant fun.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Pablo is an amazing teller of Colombia and paisaland (way that he call Antioquia) history, culture and reality. Also he give interesting information, make you laugh, but in my opinion the most important thing, he give an inspiring speech of hope about the transformation of the city.
