    We were told as a must and this is confirmed. Visit during 4 hours on foot from the city centre with a passionate guide and exciting from the vile giving a whole bunch of historical explanations and anecdotes, remaining nevertheless objective and not in the judgment. This allows to venture out in groups in places where we wouldn't necessarily and explanations on the changes experienced not this city. Very interesting. It's free but our guide earned his tip in view of its energy.

    Must do if you are in Medellin We did the morning city tour with Pablo and it's probably the best city tour we have done in South America. He's passionate about the city, has no problem answering any questions (even about stuff Colombians don't usually talk much about) and the parts of the city you visit are great! If you are in Medellin it's a must!

    One of the best free tours I've done in South America over the past 4 months. Hernan gave a balanced view of the city from its origins to present. The tour group was around ten, and lasted about 4hrs with a few short breaks. It went around the local area with famous buildings and also buildings of importance in Medellin's history but which you would probably overlook. It books up quick so book up at least a day in advance. A must if wanting to see Medellin.

    These guys do a fantastic walking tour of Medellin that was probably the most worthwhile thing I did in the city. Book a few days in advance.

    We did the Real City Walking Tour of Medellin our first morning in the city after our arrival. It is a great thing to do at any point in your trip to Medellin, but was an especially wonderful way to start off your trip with some sense of history and context. On the tour you see many of the main sites in the Centro, including Botero Plaza, Parque de los Luces, El Huerco and others. Our guide Maribel was AMAZING. A Medellin local, with so much spirit and sense of humor. She knew so much, and we loved her. Highly recommend for anyone who is visiting Medellin. And also - the tour itself is free but make sure to tip your guide!

    Very informative and well run tour. Our guide was Julio, who gave the almost 4 hour tour in outstanding English and with the enthusiasm of someone who loves what they do. He was patient, easy to listen and talk to, and, as far as I could tell, pretty objective. The tour is free and the guides only makes money from tips. The suggested amount is 20,000 to 35,000 per person.
