This was an excellent tour. Our guide was super friendly and took us to all the listed towns and even took me by another area I wanted to see Park Llarus spelling that is lit up at night. When in Medellin over Christmas time frame I would highly recommend this tour. I was blown away by how all the towns go all out with lights, festivals, street food vendors etc. Everyone, I mean everyone the streets are jammed packed with locals and visitors enjoying the lights was so friendly and in a festive mood.
Thank you Julio for making our tour a delight. We were picked up on time and were warmly greeted by our guide. His English was very good. We visited the old town of Poblado, the light show at the university, walked around the lake at Parque Norte, and and down to Centro to walk along the lighted street. Was a wonderful time. Thank you Julio for being friendly and answering all our questions
This is the second year in a row, we booked the Christmas Lights Tour in Medellin with Viator. We were so thrilled when our guide for last year showed up at our hotel for pickup. Not sure I am spelling your name correctly but El ber you made our tour! Hopefully we will see you again next year. Thank you for making Christmas Eve special for us! Frank and Margie Grillo
This year there was no lights over the river due to construction. We also took the tour too late as some of the venues had already started to take down the lights. The driver was very good but the congested traffic slowed the tour down.
