This tour was a great way to get to know the history of Medellin and Colombia. Juan was our host and was super helpful and shared some very shocking but insightful stories about his upbringing in Colombia which added a great personable touch. He even had ponchos for all of us when it rained (for free!) Would recommend this tour to those visiting Medellin - 3-4 hours we’ll spent!

I totally recommend Real City tours for your walking tour in Medellin and if you are lucky enough to have Monsa for your tour guide, then you will walk and learn about all the necessary history of each place or monument. She will explain everything using simple words and very good English. She creates a family environment within the group and she cares to give the best description of Medellin.

I definitely expected the "And if everyone looks to the right, you'll see a church." I did not expect to get a full-fledged history lesson full of politics and the city's hardships that would have everyone in tears by the end. On this tour, I developed a true love for Colombia. For anyone looking to get a "real" sense of what this beautiful country is and has been through, I highly recommend this tour.

Absolutely loved it! Great information was provided and got to see some cool parts of the city center that isn’t very touristy otherwise. It was the perfect balance between getting information and walking around! Our guide Edgar was great, gave us lots of tips and extra info about Colombia and it’s history as a whole and also about his experiences. Great walking tour!

Excellent way to get an initial grasp of the city. Great guide so much packed in culture, politics, architecture and a chance to meet fellow travellers. Only drawback could only get a place on my last day. Should have booked earlier. Advice try and book for first full day. Also don’t listen when the guide tells you to say something for the group photo or you could look a bit nuts. Just smile so you look normal.
