The Basics

Lina with Medellin Travels was the best guide I could have asked for. She took me to all the sites on the tour, and shared with me what the city is really like for its residents, along with important history and insights. It felt like an outing with a dear friend. I especially liked the trip up the MetroCable and a typical hillside neighborhood. Thank you, Lina. You're the best!

Private Pablo Escobar, Pueblito Paisa and Medellin City Tour
Bring a note pad and pen. Better yet bring a recorder. The amount of information Alex gives you regarding the Escobar years as well as personal family experience is more than one can remember. He has exact details on names, dates, who is who, who did what, etc. His English skills are excellent so you don't need to worry about a strong accent and not being able to understand. The travel accommodations he provides are very comfortable, convenient, roomy, and relaxing. Alex knows the layout of the city and how to quickly move around. He is also good at providing in-depth background on the Escobar topics for a more complete understand of the history. Good job, Alex. Thank you

The Conception of Pueblito Paisa

The 1976 construction of El Penol, a hydroelectric power plant, meant that many traditional paisa homes were demolished. Distraught at such an integral part of colonial history being destroyed, a Colombian architect salvaged parts of the village and reconstructed it on top of Cerro Nutibara (Nutibara Hill). Although fabricated, the village gives an accurate idea of colonial life in Medellín.
