I really wanted to do a city tour but I noticed that some of them didn't cover some areas that I wanted to go to, such as Pueblito Paisa. My husband was very interested in doing a Pablo Escobar tour. We were about to pay for two separate tours until I found this deal with Medellin Travels. It covered everything we wanted to see at a good price. The tour usually starts at 9 a.m. but after communicating with Lina through their Facebook page (who was always polite and quick to respond) she made the exception of starting at 1 p.m. because I thought we wouldn't be ready until that time. (We had just arrived to Medellin but wanted to do the tour on that same day). We were ready around 11 a.m. so I let Lina know. Due to the traffic near our hotel it was taking a while for our guide Oscar to get there after I had contacted Lina. (Not their fault, I was the one who thought we wouldn't be ready until later) What really impressed me was that Lina took the time to personally go meet us at our hotel to let us know that Oscar would be there in a few minutes. It was very professional on her part. Oscar was friendly, energetic, and knowledgeable. He explained how the city works and the development it has had in the last few years. We went to all of the places described. The tour was so detailed that the next day we didn't even know what to do or where to go because it felt like we had already done everything! It is a great way to go to Medellin and not feel like you're missing out on something. Would recommend to whoever goes to Medellin- especially if you are only there for a few days.

We were picked up on time by our young but very knowledgeable guide Pedro and our fantastic driver in a comfortable van. We went first to take a ride with the spectacular cable car in Santo Domingo up to the Spanish Library, which unfortunately is closed due to structural problems. We saw the community over which Escobar had great influence. The views from the cable car are spectacular. We took the modern Metro to Downtown and visited there different points of interest, including the Cathedral and Plaza Botero. Afterwards we went to Pueblito Paisa, had a great lunch and enjoyed the great views over the city. The rest of the tour was about Pablo Escobar, visiting the house he was shot, the cemetery with his grave and that of other family members and his house, which we had a chance to see two weeks before it’s destruction. Altogether it was an extremely satisfying tour which we can only highly recommend. Many thanks to Pedro for all his explanations and stories about the city and Escobar, we definitely learned a lot of new information. The right way to get to know this fascinating city.

Lina with Medellin Travels was the best guide I could have asked for. She took me to all the sites on the tour, and shared with me what the city is really like for its residents, along with important history and insights. It felt like an outing with a dear friend. I especially liked the trip up the MetroCable and a typical hillside neighborhood. Thank you, Lina. You're the best!
