          Amazing City Tour
          Joe was the best tour guide we’ve had! His vibrant personality & knowledge of Medellin made our experience unforgettable. He took us to some amazing spots, including Comuna 13, the Botanical Gardens, and Plaza Botero. We also took the metro-cable, which led us to a beautiful nature reserve. We truly got to see the city like locals. Would highly recommend!

          Worth visiting
          So glad we got to see this with our own eyes and to hear stories of the transformation of Comuna 13. There was plenty of walking up slopes, so the escalators we're a nice change. Kind of like a metro station with no trains

          BEST TOUR EVER WITH JOE
          We had an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING time with JOE POSADA as our tour guide!!! He made the trip SO much FUN, and translated seamlessly between English and Spanish. The drive to the Horse ranch was beautiful and Joe shared history of the area along the way. Once we arrived at the horse ranch we were greeted by the sweetest family and so many beautiful, MAJESTIC, well cared for horses. We set out on our tour along the countryside and through mountains and saw so many gorgeous birds, flowers, eucalyptus, bamboo and got to experience the fresh mountain air with such great company. The VIEWS at the mountain top were stunning and we grabbed a drink at the local spot on top of the mountain. Joe was the highlight of the tour. He made the experience so memorable. It is a time we will always cherish. We enjoyed it so much we booked another tour specifically with JOE to visit Guatape. Joe is incredible and the horse tour was such a beautiful way to experience the Colombian countryside. HIGHLY recommend and ask for JOE!!!! You will be SO happy you did!!

          Personable, ease, and memorable!
          I cannot recommend this experience enough! Our guide, Joe Posada, was extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and intentional in curating our experience. Full day event and Joe made sure we had time to prioritize everything we wanted to do. He knew so much about Colombia history as well as specific history to Guatape. This experience made getting to and from Medellin to Guatape easy and seamless. The drive was beautiful as well as Joe found and recommended incredible food spots for breakfast and lunch on the journey. This way of experiencing Guatape made the whole activity very personable and enjoyable to see things at our leisure. Book with Medellín City Services and even better if you can get Joe as your guide!

          Authentic, intentional, peaceful, and an experience you will treasure
          Absolutely incredible experience! What made it truly special was our guide Joe Posada. He picked us up and took us to the location and helped with translating since we only speak English. He’s a joy to be around and went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience, so much so that we ended up booking another (different) tour later in the week because the impression he made on us. The staff at the horse farm were also extremely friendly, accommodating, and welcoming. You could tell the horses were well cared for. The whole experience beginning to end was very thoughtful, intentional, and the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend this experience or any others by Medellín City Services ESPECIALLY if you get the option and privilege to be shown around by Joe!!! He will make it a memorable experience you’ll never forget while sharing his wealth of knowledge about Colombia. Truly a gem

          Great guide, hacienda is under construction
          Ivan Builes was our guide and he was amazing. He was friendly and had a nice vehicle which is important since it’s a 3 hour drive each way from Medellin. The Hacienda is not worth the trip its self right now. It’s under a bunch of construction. In about a year the place will be amazing. They are building roller coasters and other attractions. We did not do the water park.

          ATV Tour Experience
          We had a great experience with our guide, Joe Posada. Joe is a genuine person who cares about your safety and guest experience. He is wealthy with knowledge of the history and current state of Medellin. He went above and beyond to give us a great experience on our ATV Tour. I would highly recommend Joe to be your tour guide for any experience in Medellin!

          Fantastic private tour of Santa Elena!!
          Luis was awesome!! He did a great job at translating Spanish to English as I went on the Santa Elena Silleteros tour with my wife and mother. We had a great time! We really enjoyed meeting Don Joaquin who was third generation of Silleteros and his wife. We liked learning about the Silleteros tradition, lifestyle, and history. Additionally, we enjoyed making a silleta and experienced wearing the traditional clothing and carrying the silleta. Luis provided us with a reliable vehicle that had AC which made comfortable ride from Medellin to Santa Elena where is was much cooler. I recommend taking a wind breaker or light jacket as the climate does change at higher elevation. Luis picked us up at my family’s house where we were staying a dropped us off near Comuna 13 were we wanted to walk around and shop. I highly recommend this tour with Luis he as fantastic and we had a great time with our guid Luis. Thank you for a wonderful tour and experience!! 👍🏼👍🏼

          Tour was amazing with Luis Reyes. Luis really explained the history and story of everything we saw. He was thoughtful and answered all of our questions. The culture and people of Colombia are wonderful and Luis is a great global ambassador to his country.

        Steven was an awesome tour guide. Friendly, funny, engaging and extremely knowledgeable. We had a blast with him.
        easy online reservation and he arrived few minutes early to pick us up from Marriott Medellin which was good.
        Everything was just as described and the information provided during the tour was super, extra ordinary and above my expectation. Steven being bilingual was great,he was more than tour guide but like a friend and family member. We would definitely recommend this tour company

        Nothing about this tour was extraordinary in terms of the places they took us. There were other tours at every spot we went to for the most part.

        The thing, though, that set this tour apart was our tour guide, Carlos.

        Carlos, a former policeman during the Escobar-era was able to give unparalleled insight as to what it was like to live and serve during those times. He is one of 3 policeman from his academy class of 130 that is still alive! So surreal and humbling.

        Admittedly, i have not taken any other tours of this type, but it is really hard to imagine any tour being better without Carlos as your guide.

        Dear E, Thanks for your words, they mean a lot to us. Great to know you have had a great time with Carlos, unfortunately local government has been shutting down lpaces related to Pablo making it harder for us to send the world a message of the new Medellin. Look forward to visiting more places with you in the near future. Sincerely, Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services

        I was so excited to take this tour and felt like I knew more than enough to lead it myself. I was blown away by the excitement, energy and knowledge of Carlos. Not only did he think of every comfort for this trip but with his history as a member of the Search Block he brought the history alive and added such a personal touch. I have been on numerous tours on my travels and I can not say enough about how this exceeded my highest of expectations. I would easily have paid 10 times more for this experience. Carlos you made my entire trip to Colombia with this trip amazing and I can not thank you enough for your time and thoughtfulness. Charge more you are worth every penny and then some.

        This tour was a great all-around experience. Wilson took us to various sites of significance in Pablo Escobar's life, including Pablo's prison, the Monaco building, the neighborhood where Pablo was killed, and Pablo's grave. He provided us with in depth information throughout the tour. He was very knowledgeable about each topic and taught us a lot about Pablo's life and his impact on Medellin today. Wilson made the tour a lot of fun as well and gave us a much better understanding of the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Medellin!

        We went on a tour with Kevin and visited: Monaco Building (Pablo’s Penthouse)
        Envigado, La Paz (Pablo´S Hometown),La Miel (Pablo´S Prison),Pablo/Griselda Blanco’s Graveyard, Downtown Medellin, Los Olivos (Pablo’s Final Hideout) and La catedral (Pablo’s Prision). It was a great experience and we learned a lot from Kevin. It is nice to have a Colombian's perspective rather than an outsiders. We did not idolize Escobar, but we learned about his upbringing up unto his death and the impact he had on Medellin. Kevin was great because he was knowledgeable and even went the extra mile to help us get futbol (soccer) tickets. He knew the city inside and out! Thank you Kevin!!
