This tour is everything a perfect tour should be: informative, fun, and engaging! Our guide Yander was amazing! He was positive, friendly, respectful and his love for Medellín was apparent. 80% of the tour is on a bike path which made me comfortable. I highly suggest the E-bike if you get tired easily pedaling on a regular bike. Fortunately our guide was patient with us considering we hadn’t rode a bike in years. We are grateful to have explored a beautiful city full of life, energy, and amazing food!! Thank you Yander for your time and patience!! Muchas Gracia Green bike tour!!!
