    What to Expect
    Get picked up by a private vehicle from your hotel in Medellin and travel to a city metro station, where you’ll be dropped off for a ride into the downtown area. Sit back and relax on Medellin’s modern public transport system as you enjoy views of the Andes Mountains, the city, and river.

    Arrive at a station in the city’s downtown area and begin an exploration on foot. You’ll stop by a collection of sculptures created by Colombian artist Fernando Botero, and have time to admire the neigborhood’s plazas, colonial churches, and the striking cultural house. Then climb aboard the aerial cable car for a ride into the mountains surrounding town.

    Enjoy the views as you ascend above the city below, traveling up to Santo Domingo Savio Library, a modern building donated to the city by the King of Spain. Feel free to take a short walk around the library grounds at your leisure. Leaving the library, head to El Pueblito Paisa in central Medellin. Get a look at what life was like in colonial-era Colombia as you wander around this attraction’s recreated village featuring a church, museum, and a collection of shops selling traditional Colombian handicrafts.

    After the El Pueblito Paisa visit you’ll have two choices. Those visitors who select the optional upgrade visit to Arvi Park will proceed on a second aerial cable car ride (extra cost), while all other visitors will receive a ride back to their Medellin hotel.

    Very informative while getting lots of physical exercise. George was an excellent “ambassador” for Medellin & thankfully spoke excellent English. The van was clean & comfortable, it would have held additional passengers but we were the only 2 on the tour. I would recommend this

    Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our guide George and our driver Gustavo. I am more than elated that you guys had a spectacular time. Also, I appreciate you making emphasis that we speak "fluent" English, this facilitates the core structure of the conversation and enables way more dialogue to be created in a smooth manner without playing charades or guessing games. We love and appreciate our clients dearly. Thanks again! Alex from medellintravels.com

    Our Tour Guide told us that Parque Arvi was not included in our Medellin City Tour, however we check again the details of the tour and it clearly shows that Parque Arvi was included.

    You know very well that you booked the city tour without the tour upgrade. You wanted a free tour without paying tripadvisor an additional fee. This is unethical. You tried to induce our tour guide to give you a free upgrade, remember? Did you forget that our tour guide called the office and we spoke to you, reminding you that you did not pay for an upgrade, plus we sent you another copy of the inclusions and spoke to you on the chat, we sent you another copy while you were on the tour so you could see it in fine print, (even though you had already received that when you did the booking and were well aware), remember on the phone you said "Ok, I know", and you were fine with that??? It makes no sense to be incoherent and go back on your word. On the booking details, booking information, and booking Inclusions, it specifies in both English and Spanish clearly stipulating in detail that it is an upgrade that is NOT included in the normal tour. We are straight shooters that have the absolute highest ethics. What you are doing is shameful, petty, and embarrassing. Your review will not affect us.
