What you'll do

If you think Colombia is all about drugs, violence and Pablo Escobar, well, you're going to love this tour!!

I'm going to show you the real Colombia, the one that they never show on the movies, is much more than just drugs, our country exceeds fiction, inspires it, its fascinating, complex, diverse and full of contrasts.

Colombia is considered one of most beautiful and happiest countries in the world, but ironically it's been on of the most violent, why is that?

We'll figure it out through our whole experience.

Corporate teams, friends, families, date nights and birthday reunions are great for this experience and anybody that likes to learn and discover new things!

I'll share Colombia's amazing geography, multi-cultures, history, diversity, landscapes, crazy facts, bizarre stories, personal experiences, we'll discuss a few things and pop some quizzes!

- Why Colombia? What's a megadiverse country?
- What's the difference between guerrillas and paramilitaries? Is drugs the problem?
- Pablo Escobar?
- The most happiest country?
- And any question you have, I'd be happy to answer.

This experience could also be very helpful when planning your future trip to Colombia and Medellín.

Don't hesitate to contact me regarding new dates and times, I'd be happy to accommodate you

I love what I do! I love Colombia as a whole, the diversity in every aspect, the different climates, landscapes, geography, cultures, ethnicities and the amazing and crazy history that "blows" everybody's mind.

I am professional guide with over 10 years of experience in the city of Medellín and the Department of Antioquia, the region I live, the city I love and the culture I feel absolute passion for. I was doing tours every day before this crazy pandemic, but now technology has showed us the way. Fluent in english since I live a big part of my childhood in United States and built a unique point of view being grown with both cultures.

So much fun! Informative, colorful, and the love of his country, Colombia, was obvious. Colombia is definitely on my travel wish list once the world opens up again!

Daniel is so knowledgeable about Colombia, it's history and people. He was an ideal tour guide as he was well prepared, engaging, and was able to speak to so many topics that my friends and I brought up. Thank you so much!

Daniel is warm and friendly, and quite knowledgeable about Colombia. He *loves* Colombia, but also has a realistic view of it, in all its beauty and its troubles. It was an interesting presentation, and left me wanting more, which is a good thing, and determined to travel to Colombia when international travel is possible again. A wonderful way to spend part of a Sunday afternoon.

It was wonderful to be introduced to Columbia in a way that shows the passion of Columbians and the beauty of the landscape. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and open to discussion about the struggles of Columbia.
