This tour was great, private,personalised and full of charm. We got to see the best bits of the city and it felt like a family member was taking us on a tour instead of a paid service. We did not go to places that were of little interest to us and were therefore able to focus on what held our interest.

Our tour guide was personable, friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanted to see the city from their point of view.

Very much enjoyed my tour of Jardín. After driving through the mountainous Colombian countryside we arrived at a little farm where we were shown the process from seedling to dried coffee beans. As everyone in the tour (hi mr. And mrs. Betancourt!) walked into the town square of Jardín I remembered it was Ash Wednesday after seeing more than a few people with an ashy cross on their forehead going here and there or hanging out on benches. Elver, who ran this tour, was an able guide, telling is all about the cable car and a bit of town history. A very chill trip to a picturesque pueblo.

During our month in Medellin, we wanted to visit some sites that might be a bit off the "beaten path," and for that we needed someone to be our driver and guide. Camilo was highly recommended to us by friends who live in Medellin, and he lived up to all the hype. We left the decisions mostly in his hands, and he found some fascinating things to share with us. First, we rode the free and spotlessly clean escalators (yes, escalators!) up the mountainside in Comuna 13. This area was basically a war zone during the days of Pablo Escobar, with snipers shooting at each other and a 7 pm to 7 am curfew. Today, it is a safe residential area and these amazing escalators, covering a total of about 300 vertical feet, enable residents to access services and visit friends and family easily and safely. The houses that climb the side of the mountain in Comuna 13 are now painted with wonderful graphics and bright colours. The "barrio" is cheerful and clean. On that day-long trip we also walked across an ancient wooden bridge designed by an engineer who worked on the Brooklyn Bridge, and we rode in a cable car from mountain top to mountain top, looking down at exquisite views far below. Our second trip with Camilo was equally wonderful: we visited a charming man who grows gorgeous flowers for the annual silletero festival that takes place in August, and we spent time in the small towns of Santa Elena, La Ceja and El Retiro. Our lunch on that trip was a special treat at a restaurant with the unpronounceable name of Queareparaenamorarte and delicious food in unusual (to us) combinations. Camilo speaks excellent English and he is full of fascinating bits of information. We greatly enjoyed both trips with Camilo and highly recommend him to any visitors to Medellin!

We had an absolutely brilliant time with Camilo of Medellin City Tours; he picked us up in his shiny new SUV, officially one of the nicest cars I have ever been in and whisked us off into the mountains for panoramic views of the city. He was an absolute fountain of knowledge, spoke some of the best English I have ever encountered (perhaps even better than mine!) and really knew everything there is to know about his city. He drove us around, pointing out local landmarks, explaining the turbulent history of Medellin and taking us on foot to visit some of the poorer neighbourhoods; at no point did I feel threatened, everybody was extremely friendly and I felt like we got to see a part of Medellin many travellers miss out on. We finished off the day with a ride up Medellin's famous cable cars for stunning sunset views. Do NOT miss the chance to book a tour with Medellin City Tours, it is well worth it! :)
