The Walking Tour with Juan was really good. He showed us interesting places & told very interesting stories and anectodes. He even could memorize every single name of our big group. Very impressive and it becomes more personal. I definitly can recommend this tour.

Pablo was such an amazing host. It was a great way to get a feel for Medellín and understand some of its history. Really engaging stories and also lovely to meet some fellow travellers. Highly recommend.

You can only book the tour online. I believe the tours open up online at 6 pm two days before... So for example, a Thursday tour would open at 6 pm on Tuesday. ;)

At the tour, the guide explained that the tips received was their salary and recomended 35 to 50,000 COP. I paid 40,000. It is done discreetly so pay what it is worth to you. Well worth 50,000 if you can afford it.
