Lots of people just know about Medellin because of its dark past with the cartels and drugs, I love to show the real city, the innovative, the one that is full of people looking forward and in constant evolution, that's how we crossed from being the most dangerous city in the world to be an exceptional destination for tourism.

Because Oskar wasn't availiable at our date his girlfriend Sarah overtook to be the guide. She showed me some first steps with the typical colombien friendly and charming way to her rich city. Till today I still think about all the many dedails she showed me, which I wouldn't had been able to pick up beeing the first time here in such a short time. Many thanks and to all the coming tourists, do the tour and you will have some glimpses behind the surface.

Oscar es un enamorado de Medellin, su arte y su historia y te lo hace sentir. Ibamos con una niña de 10 años y supo mantener su atención e interés todo el rato. Oscar es una persona super culta, cercana y amable.
