Traveling around and being tourist I know what a tourist want to avoid, lines, traffic and massive tours with 40 people, that's why, I designed several experiences to know the city by parts and walking through its streets, as a local, sharing with you, landmarks that the turists by themselves would'nt know, introducing you local people and giving you the oportunity to know the real Medellín, and seeing how we passed from being the most dangerous to the most innovative city of the world, you'll know past, present and future of the city

I could not ask for a better tour guide. Oscar was very knowledgeable. We didn't feel like information was forced on us. The whole tour was a great experience. He is my new go-to tour guide. Thanks, Oscar.

This was one of my favorite tours while in Medellin. We did a little bit of everything, From riding cable cars to eating bunuelos. Oscar was really cool. He knows his way around the city really well. He did a great job at explaining the history of the different sites we visited. I learned a lot of new things and had a lot of fun on this tour. I would highly recommend it.

Sara was an excellent English speaking guide (she speaks Spanish as well) and as a Columbian she knew the area extremely well and its history. I had fun tasting my way through the tour with buneaulo's, churros and a cheese arepa - delicious! It was a fun way to spend my third day in Medellin and get to know the metro and cable car system. Great value!

We had a perfect afternoon with Oscar. He is such a friendly and polite person and we felt very comfortable and safe with him. We got to see many different places which for sure we would not have visited without him. We also got to taste a variety of local food. His English was very good and his stories were very informative and interesting. We highly recommend and would definitely do again. Muchas gracias Oscar!
