What you'll do

We will use the different ways of transportation that Medellin offers to make all our trips between the different areas of the city and we will complement our tour with different walks that will lead us to better understand the transformation that the city has experienced in recent years. Initially in our tour we will go at Downtown Medellin; we will recognize it's history, it's culture, we will explore the most emblematic buildings, parks and squares, to finally taste a delicious cup of the world best coffee in one of the Medellin's most traditional places. We will start our trip in the Metro System; first we will take the train to the Comuna 13, then we will transfer to the cable car that will take us over the houses to reach up one of the highest mountains of Medellin, there we will understand how the situation is in the highest neighborhoods and we will enjoy one of the best views of the city. Then we will go to the famous Electric Stairs, a unique project in the world also located in the Comuna 13, previously one of the most dangerous areas in the city, we will talk about the incredible history and the transformation process that it's inhabitants experienced, we will make an urban tour full of magic and color framed by the greatest amount of graffiti in all Medellin, we will return to the train station and there we will have concluded our tour.

Your hosts

Let us introduce ourselves, we are a great team made up of two brothers, we are Sebastian and Julian, both born and raised in Medellin. I'm 27 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 1991, to today being one of the reference cities in terms of urban planning and social innovation worldwide.
