  • This is a great way to see downtown Medellín. Maribell is an excellent guide who not only showed us around, but she provided a lot of insightful information about the history of the city and was very ...  more »
  • Carolina, our local guide, has given US an excellent walking tour prepared. Starting with the history of the city through the dark time up to the social urbanization all information to the respective main points of the city centre were compact over taken and best shows. Hats off to the successful manner. It is believed not mince words, all questions are answered and above all a part of the city visited, the otherwise not any tourist would commit. The tour has a good size with 20 persons per group. Also, there are still ample tips and recommendations at the end.

  • The Real City Walking Tour - What a fantastic way to start your visit to Medellin!! I just can't say enough good about this tour. Entertaining, informative, funny, sad, good steady pace, kept everyone in the group involved. Our guide was amazing. So passionate and informed. This was by far the best way to see the central district of Medellin, with its various plazas,and at the same time to hear more history on each stop. Recommended tip of 20,000 to 35,000 was too light - for me 50,000 was more like it ($18). Having had tours around the world, this was an amazing value.
  • A wonderful tour of some of the most exotic fruits you've never had. Our tour guide, German was wonderful. Not only was he fluent in English, he was also patient, engaging and very friendly. We tried fifteen different exotic fruits during the course of the tour. It ended with a review of all the fruits we tried, in a fun and easy going setting. This market also has a very interesting past and German does a great job in explaining that history. Highly recommended.
  • Very interesting tour! We enjoyed every second of it! Hernan, our guide, was great. His English is perfect and he knows so much about this city and politics in general.
  • We absolutely loved the real city walking tour. Our guide Pablo was wonderful. This tour is not like other generic walking tours- here, they answer all the taboo questions about politics, conflict, crime, etc. Nothing is off limits. He did an amazing job of explaining issues in an understandable way, but without oversimplifying complexities. Our guide was extremely animated, spoke in a captivating way that kept everyone totally involved the whole time, and made each person feel respected/their questions valued. He also made specific stops for us to be able to try some DELICIOUS buñelos and empanadas. As for the one star review about showing up late and being rejected from the tour-- that is 100% their own fault. There are multiple warnings in the booking to show up on time and there is a wait list for no shows. Although the tour is free, real city keeps the groups small enough to be personal and give a more valuable experience this way. Our guide knew the name of every person in the group and we even ran into people from previous tour groups who's names he still remembered.
  • Monsa was our guide and was excellent. Very funny and informative. It’s about 3 miles round trip and we learned a lot about the history of Medellin good and bad. Monsa recommended a great spot for us to get a traditional Colombian lunch. I suggest reserving a spot for a tour on your first full day in the city.
