I booked private guided tour with Daniel. Before I booked it I have done my research, compared different offers and decided to take this one. And I am glad I did!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 The guide was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He would always explain a lot of things and meanings behind them, especially when we visited communa 13 he explained exactly what every art work meant in terms of history of this area. He explained a lot about Escobar and his influence. There was a lot of historic details. I felt very safe throughout the whole trip! If I had to take a guided tour in Medellin again, I would take it with Daniel. Thank you so much!!

The overall tour of Comuna 13 was excellent!! I learned so much! Daniel by far has to be THE BEST tour guide I have ever had! He was very knowledgeable and personable. He took his time to explain the history in a way that was very easy to understand. 10 out of 10 would definitely recommend!

Bottom line experience: better to hire a driver for a day to see these beautiful sites.
The guide spoke English and delivered us to all places, and agreed to make an extra stop on the way back. We avoided a line to buy tickets to attraction. The information provided however was sparse and neither correct, nor reliable. We were told to explore at our speed and leisure, but were politely forced to do, go, eat what when and how the guide wanted and our eagerness to see and explore these attractions felt politely unwelcome.

Dear lana, I am sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations, we accept it with respect and professionalism. The guide agreed to make not only one but more stops on the tour (they were not included), if you had hired a regular driver, this would not have been possible. The guides at the coffee farm were not happy with your attitude, because in one hour of tour, you only paid attention for 10 minutes and went straight to the house to brew your own coffee (seems made up, but please text us if this is wrong) without any respect for the privacy and time of our guide. Another person from your group wrote us (Bernie) to thank us for our time, patience and disposition with you, but sometimes we have clients who think that just because they booked a private tour, it gives them the right to treat us like servants and dispose of our time, please note that the tour lasted almost 11 hours, you even took your shoes off and put your feet up on the car dashboard, what else did you want from our guide? I am glad that even when you did not show any consideration, respect nor interest for our tour, you still highlight the guide's politeness and education, and to every customer who reads this: that is what defines us: even when we feel the customer is not right, we still go the extra mile to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. Thanks for the review, and next time you might clarify which information was not accurate so we can reply with arguments and accuracy. Daniel, Camilo, Cesar, Juan & Mauricio...

Daniel is a great guide. He contacted us prior to the tour to confirm and arrived on time. He speaks great English and showed us all the sites in the tour with lots of information. He gave the perspective of the locals from different points of view. He gave us recommendations. Most importantly he is a fabulous person and we both thoroughly enjoyed our day with him.

Excellent tour guide (Mauricio) is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about all the sites we visited. Also had very insightful conversations about traditions and politics in Colombia. Very enjoyable journey!

There are so many companies that offer tours to El Peñol and Guatapé but if you prefer a personalized experience, you should book this tour.
My driver and tour guide, Juan, was fantastic- he communicated with me before he came to pick me up, spoke very good English and tailored the trip according to my needs. He drove safely and carefully.

I decided not to climb the rock, but we went there to see it and take photos from the beautiful surroundings.
I am fascinated with Guatapé and its colorful, unique zócalos, and wanted to spend more time there simply to roam the streets and take photos. Juan showed me the most important sights and told me interesting stories about them, and then let me explore on my own as I wanted.

It's true, Guatapé is the most colorful town in the world. Next time I visit Colombia I will stay there for a few days there.

I am so happy to have booked this tour with Discovering Medellin and to have had Juan as my tour guide. Thank you for a memorable experience!

We visited a coffee farm, interesting to see how much work it was to produce coffee. We also visited Guatape. It was definitely the highlight of Medellin! Beautiful views from the top of the rock. Our guide was Andres. He speaks English and we could understand him well. We have enjoyed the full day tour thoroughly.
