What an utterly amazing tour! The private tour with Epic Tours Medellín is the way to go! Today’s tour was of Comuna 13. Manny was my guide and took me through the city of Medellín explained the history of the city, their on going social programs, and with the bonus of sampling local cuisine along the way. Next up a ride on the metro cable which was thrilling and then on to Comuna 13. It was like exploring with an old friend. Comuna 13 was the crown jewel of this experience. Finding out about the violent past and the significance behind the artwork in the murals and listening to the explanation. How the people of the community embraced change and created a “new Medellín”! It is something I will always treasure. Also, being able to interact with the residents was a fabulous treat. This is a tour you must undertake if you come to Medellín. When I come back I will certainly do this tour again.
Great, all-day tour! I was a bit nervous about booking this because it seemed so long, but the day went by quickly. Our guide was on-time and we set off for the day with a group of about 6 others. I was glad that the van wasn't overly packed due to covid. All of the stops were really pretty and scenic. The town in El Penol was cool to see and had great views, climbing the rock was fun and the city of Guatape was so beautiful. Overall, the food was fine, but lunch was definitely better than breakfast. The only thing I would change was I wish we'd went to Guatape earlier instead of as the last stop. It was so cool there, but I was exhausted by then and didn't really have energy to walk around or shop. It was great though!
Esteban was wonderful! I wasn't super excited about this tour, but went because my husband really wanted to go. It turned out to be so much better than I expected. Esteban knew Everything about the history and shared different perspectives of the story, which I appreciated. I learned a lot and all of the stops were very informational. It also gave us a chance to see parts of Medellin we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Definitely recommend!
Had the best time in Guatape. My tour guide is very knowledgeable.Jessica sanches was able to translate for me in English all The things she tells to other Spanish speaking people in the group. We used bus going to the place. Very spacious and comfortable. Food was also great. Would recommend this to my friends
Esteban was the best tour guide - super friendly and so knowledgeable. He made the experience so interesting and was willingly to answer every question we threw at him (we had a lot!) I would 100% recommend to any traveller, this was great value for money.
