The tour was very interesting, especially enjoyed Plaza Botero where many of Botero's sculputure are. Museo de Antioquia is very worth the visit and you can enjoy more of Botero's work.

Fun, informational tour! It was small-group too which gave it a more personal touch. Guide was knowledgeable which made it worth the money spent! I learned a lot more than I could have by just seeing the sights on my own.

Fernando Botero, arguably one of South America's best artists, has a heavy influence on the city of Medellin. Traveling to Medellin, I wanted to learn more about Botero, his life and his work. This tour was exactly that - small-group, personalized and with a very knowledgeable guide. The museum is well worth the visit and consists of three floors full of artwork. Overall, a great and relaxing day out.

This trip and our guide was extremely informative. We walked through downtown Medellin across to Botero plaza and the museum, seeing and learning about things along the way. One thing worth noting is that this is not an art tour. We thought it would be Botero-specific, but while we did learn a LOT about Medellin and throroughly enjoyed our trip, once we got to the museum our guide did not know much about art and Botero's career. Still an amazing tour, but it might be worth updating the description or name perhaps Medellin walking tour including museum visit.
