What people are saying about Medellín

It was an amazing and very well organized tour. Our tour guide Mateo was great and the tour was also bilingual, which made it so easy for my son who only speaks english to understand and also enjoy the tour. All the landmarks were very well explained, tour bus was very comfortable with reclining chairs and clean with A/C, and the landmarks and towns were absolutely beautiful! They also provided us with a very traditional and delicious breakfast and lunch. I recommended the tour to other family members and friends and told them it’s a must do tour especially with Viaja Medellin!

If you are going to visit Medellin you need to do this tour! The cable carts are well worth it for taking great pictures of the view of Medellin and our tour guide Sebastian was incredibly knowledgable and helpful before, during and after the tour! The history behind Communa 13 is something that will interest anyone!
