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.
It was fun and I learned a lot. The views were beautiful! It was my first time horseback riding and I was terrified. I wanted to get off right when we first started but our guide helped me relax and I was glad I didn’t quit! If you don’t eat pork bring something to eat. There was a sausage on top of the food and even though I took the sausage off, I think some of the juices from the pork saved into the rest of my food all wrapped up together and my stomach was sick for the rest of my trip. That was my fault though. I knew better . It was delicious though ♀️. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Let me just begin by telling you that Don Carlos is one of the most genuine person you will meet on this tour. You will learn so much and go back home as a coffee snob..he will teach you the ways and you would be amaze what you’ve been drinking is not the best coffee you thought. Be ready and enjoy this tour absolutely would recommend and I will return for sure!
It was a really nice experience. Carlos is very passionate about his coffee and showed as a lot. And his coffee is really nice :). Thanks for this great experience and also thanks to Silvio for the great drive to the farm.
Walters is an amazing guide. I loved to discovery this part of the city. Unique vibes and crazy pictures! Highly recommend
