Great small-group tour just for my party. The guide is yours for the day, so you can follow the normal itinerary or customize it according to what you want to see! The main sights in Medellin are impressive - the Botero Plaza, Metropolitan Cathedral and Pueblito Paisa. I would highly recommend booking the MetroCable option as it's the only cable car system in the world that was built for transportation purposes only (not for tourism). Great views of the city and fantastic photo opportunities.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2014

Horrible guide. He was old and took us on HIS memory lane of growing up in Medellin. He drove us around trying to fill the time. Did not know lunch was included in the trip and we had to tell him. He parked the car on street in Prado to look at street map as he got lost!!
