We really enjoyed our tour with Julio. The tour was a good combination of historical facts and Julio’s own experience. You could tell that he was passionate about Medellín, and it made the whole tour very engaging.

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.
