    Dear Adam, Thanks for your words, we love to hear from you. Glad you noticed how educational Carlos can be, specially after being part of the brave SWAT team chasing Pablo back in the days. We are so proud to be the only company in Medellin offering his exclusive services. Please let us know about your next visit! Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services
