Easy going but not much history
JensPeter
, Aug 2021
It was a wonderful day, and it was a very good driver. However - sense the Pablo Escobar places do not have much to show for - we thought the guide would fill in the missing part and enlighten us with knowledge about Escobar and the time he lived in. After we have read more about his life and realize how little we were told on the tour. Sadly, we didn't get much information and had to ask for it. The guide was very easy to be with and we had a good talk also about Medellin, but we do not feel we got any more than a few headlines from the life of Escobar.

Dear JensPeter, Many thanks for your comment, we love to hear from you. In fact, we will honor a free tour anytime in order to compensate properly. Please pardon any inconvenience. Look forward to haring from you soon! Sincerely, Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services®

Overpriced
Gerard_R
, Jul 2021
The guide was good and knowledgeable I wish I’d had more time to research before I booked Unfortunately I was just making a quick stop in Medellin The tour was WAY overpriced and not worth the price
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Dear Gerard_R, Thanks for the review, means a lot to us. In fact, instead of going up our prices have decreased by 15 to 20% in the past 5 years. However, our private tours might not seem very affordable for solo travelers such as your case. Perhaps a bus tour such as hop on hop off would suit you better instead of a private tour just for yourself. Our team contacted you for a full immediate refund, however you neglected the refund and insisted on posting the review. Just so you are aware we are a legit and professional tourism company, which as opposed to ilegal street drivers, we pay so many fees, taxes, duties and permits that by the end of the day we make peanuts. It`s comments like yours who embrace new travelers to seek for unprofessional non-licensed businesses because they might charge a lower fee, and that`s when tourists end up drugged up by a stranger or robbed. It`s a pity. We invite you to kindly accept a full refund anytime in the future when you feel like, since we really do not intend to over charge no one. Sincerely, Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services®

Great tour. Really got to see the sites regarding this unique time in Colombian history. Did a really good job separating the myth from the man that was Pablo Escobar.
