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.

This was a fantastic experience. I got this tour as a birthday present for my husband and had two other friends join. The tour was eye-opening. I was left wondering how my hometown of Albuquerque might someday be as innovative as Medellin. Sebastian did a great job presenting the info. Each topic kept our attention. Especially recommended for people interested in city design.

We were hoping to visit Medellin this year, but couldn't because of the pandemic. This was a great intro to whet our appetites for when travel is safe again. Sebastian is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Medellin and does a great job explaining the historical and cultural context of this modern city. It was a fun experience.

Sebastian's experience was very informative and fun. I learned a lot about Medellin that I had no idea about previously. Colombia has recently been on my bucket list and I can't wait to travel again to see some of these sights in person and hopefully have an in-person tour from Sebastian!
