What you'll do

Medellin, a city that until a few years ago nobody recommended, much less thought to visit, is today a destination recommended by "The New York Times" and "National Geographic", for being a city that has been reinventing itself from an extremely violent past, to being today one of the leading cities in terms of urban planning and social innovation.

In this ONLINE EXPERIENCE we will redefine the way to discover a city and it's culture; you will learn which are the most relevant places in Medellin and also you will be fully prepared to move as a local when you decide to visit our city.

To develop our dynamic, we will use a map of Medellin as a board game, where you will find all the public transport lines with their respective stops drawn. We will use photographs to take a virtual tour, in which YOU will be in charge of navigating, moving around the city and discovering each of the places that marked different events in the history of Medellin.

We are a great team made up of two brothers, we are Sebastian and Julian, both born and raised in Medellin. I'm 28 years old, I'm an architect, urban planner and passionate about Medellin. With my brother we have been fortunate to experience first hand the fascinating transformation of our city and go through all it's neighborhoods, that until a few years ago it was impossible to access. It's incredible to see how Medellin went from being the most violent city worldwide in 1.991, to being today one of the reference cities in terms of urban planning and social innovation worldwide.

In the last three years we have received more than 5.000 people in the experiences we develop, always obtaining very good ratings, now through technology, we want to reach more places and show the inspiring history of Medellin.

Sebastián is a great storyteller and an excellent ambassador for Medellin. The pacing was perfect for our small group. Our private group came away from this experience better informed and inspired to visit Medellin in person some day.

I highly recommend this online experience. The story of Medellín's transformation is fascinating and inspirational on its own, but Sebastian further elevated it by serving as an excellent tour guide. Not only is he friendly, warm, and a great storyteller, his vast knowledge as a local and an architect helped to make the experience that more engaging.

Highly recommended. I loved participating in this experience. Sebastián is a superb host and I learnt many interesting things about Medellin and Colombia. I had such a great time that I didn't notice until afterwards that we had gone over time by almost an hour.

This was my first virtual Airbnb experience and it surpassed my expectations. Sebastian was very knowledgeable, the experience was laid out well and afforded you the opportunity to focus on topics that were most of interest. The only way it could have been better was if I was actually there in Medellin!

It was great learning about the transformation of Medellin through the social projects from Julian. He is very passionate about giving me a good overview of what made Medellin what it is today. Would recommend for anyone who wants to learn about Medellin.
