What to Expect
Once your bilingual driver has met you at the hotel or the location you have suggested for pick up, the tour heads north on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. First stop takes place at government center where the first important buildings were built. Feel free to stop anytime and use bathrooms or purchase extra drinks while you make yourself comfortable and take pictures or ask questions to the guide. There are convenient facilities where to grab snacks at any time so is recommended to bring cash or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards.
As your guide leaves this area narrating the history of the founders, the tour gets deep into downtown for a look at San Ignacious chapel and its majestic architecture which is now cultural heritage of the country. Continue to the oldest cathedral in Medellin which took almost 40 years for completion, a great way to understand the early days of the city. After having discovered this fascinating gem of architecture, tour heads to the marvelous San Pedro cemetery museum, another great piece of heritage that holds mausoleums for the wealthiest families in the city including former presidents, writers, and celebrities.
After approximately 3 hours of a fantastic journey, you should be already familiar with Medellin and how it was built as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
