This was a great tour. Jorge was our guide and he honestly made our trip to Medellin amazing. Lots of information and stories from someone who lived it. He made an extra effort to make sure our tour was phenomenal and did not disappoint. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend!!

Sarah did a great job, it was exciting and informative. Your English is very good. Sarah and Gustavo the driver are very personable and very punctual :-). Gustavo is a great driver and the car is sparkling clean. We enjoyed the morning and will be happy to recommend this tour to others. Thank you again and all the best.

An in-depth, personal and exciting tour I would recommend to all!

Line, our tour guide was absolutely amazing! This was more than just a Pablo Escobar tour, but rather an in-depth cultural lesson of the history of Colombia and Medellín. There was not a single question Lina didn’t have an answer to and then more. She was very in tune to our interests and even shared a light lunch with us at one of the spots. This was a tour I was looking forward to prior to my trip and I don’t usually book tours, but this time around I’m glad I did. It did not fail to impress and by far a highlight of my trip! Thank you and especially thank you Lina!!
