What people are saying about Medellín

I’ve always wanted to go to a soccer game in Colombia. This was a very cool and entertaining experience. After booking the tour I was sent a message asking what size soccer jersey I needed. I’m a big guy and they didn’t have a jersey that would fit me. However they went out of their way to find one that fit me. Simon met the group at the Metra and then we went to a local bar to have some drinks and meet our fellow travelers. Great way to meet fellow world travelers from all over. After about 1 1/2 hours of hanging out we walked over to the stadium. The atmosphere was very lively.. Sebastian and Simon the walked us into the stadium and got us to our seats. Simon and Sebastian described some of the chants and answered any questions we had. It was a very interesting experience. After the match they walked us over to the Metra to make sure everyone got to where they were going. I recommend to take Metra. Ubers are hard to get because of all the people. Great time, recommend.

We took the tour with our 2 daughters. It was very exciting to learn more from our amazing guide Juan. He was very well educated and took the time to answer any question we, or the children, had. Very nice tour about the good, the bad and the ugly with an amazing view at La Cathedrale. Thanks again Juan, we had a blast!

Daniel was a super nice guide, he gave us some extra information that wasn't actually included in the tour. So if you have the opportunity, book a tour with him, no matter which one 😁

Great tour of a fascinating community in Comuna 13. Great to have a guide who has grown up in and lived the history of this area, thanks Esteban!

Great tour thanks to our guides Huan Hoze and Hoze
