Sí! Nuestra logística esta diseñada para operar tours en inglés, sin embargo tenemos la flexibilidad para ofrecer tours privados en español.

Yes we do! Due to the current restrictions related to COVID-19 we have adapted our business model to offer private tours as well.

The Free Walking Tour covers the main sights in the city center: Old Railway Station, Alpujarra Administrative Centre, Square of Lights, Carabobo pedestrian street, National Palace, Veracruz Church, Botero Square (Sculptures Square), Pedro Nel’s Murals, Berrio Park, Junin pedestrian street, Bolivar Park and San Antonio Park.

Short answer: No. Longer answer: Our Free Walking Tour does include the topic of drugs, but we go far beyond the times of Pablo Escobar, as we explore Medellín from its foundation up to the current days. Although we may mention him it can definitely NOT be considered a Pablo Escobar tour.

Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, hat/cap, water and a lot of questions – we love those! An umbrella or rain coat during the rainy season wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

The Free Walking Tour takes up to 3½ hours and finishes at San Antonio metro station. The Exotic Fruits Tours takes about 2½-3 hours and finishes at Minorista Metroplus bus station.
