Not theater great for the money.
Dwight_R, Jun 2022
Was rushed through the experience in which it said we had an hour to be but it was less then 30 minutes. The gentleman spoke three hours on el Pablo which most of that time could have been spend in the local.
Juan is theeeee Best!!!
Jamilya_B, Apr 2022
This tour was everything!! Juan our tour guide was very personable and down to earth which us Floridians appreciated. We felt safe with him, he showed us around his city Medellin with Grace, every request we asked of him he was very accommodating. The food spot he took us to in Comuna 13 was enjoyable. Most importantly, we never felt rushed on the tour with him! Thank you Juan soooo much for making this tour a non-forgettable one. P.S. Juan can sang lol we sung a lot of duets while walking and driving lol

Informative tour, secure and safe
Steven_B, Mar 2022
Knowledgeable guide- a grand tour of the city due to various locations included on the tour. Gondola ride provided great city views but also areas of poverty. Graffiti escalators were a godsend. The graffiti was more beautiful murals than typical graffiti.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hello Steven Thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the tour, this tour is very complete you get to see a lot of the city in half day. Best regards Carlos paez City Vibes Tours
Loved Comuna 13!
Malik_M, Feb 2022
This was a great tour. Comuna 13 was the highlight of it. It was great learning about the history of the community and how they have turned negative things to positive. As far as the Escobar portion, there are areas where tourists are not necessarily wanted. The country obviously tries to put that past behind them so take that in mind. It is interesting seeing where is former property was located, however, now, it is a nursing home they have really tried to erase the history. If I were to repeat, I would probably do the comuna 13 and skip the escobar tour.
Great Medellin Experience
Aaron_G, Feb 2022
Had a wonderful time learning about the history of Pablo Escobar and seeing some of the key sights around Medellin. The tour of Comuna 13 was absolutely amazing, great way to experience the real Colombian culture. Andres was a great guide, was nice to be able to speak with him in Spanish and English. Would definitely recommend this tour!

5 stars tour and care even for a 6 stars.
Rafael_P, Jan 2022
Highly recommended private tour. All well organized since the contact before a tour. Since we had to postpone our trip 2 days becouse of stomach problems and give this information 15 minutes before tour starts we had to pay a little additional price. But we could also lost the money becouse we didn't cancel 24 hours before experience starts. So the company is the best and were very understanding to our last minute situation and helped to find a solutoon for our problem. The tour completely give us an answers to all our question and sightseeing was very interesting. We get a lot of information about history of Pablo and Comuna13. 5 stars tour.
