    Dear jaffass, We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience, unfortunately Medellin City Services® does not employ taxis for its highly qualified private bilingual tours. In case a taxi collected you and service was poor we will honor a full refund no questions asked, it`s our quality guarantee for all visitors. We have tried to locate your records and there is nothing on your name so we can confirm you are existing customer of Medellin City Services® and proceed to refund. Also, tried to contact you via trip advisor and there has been no reply from your side during the past 2 weeks. We understand service was terrible this time, but dont just make a statement about taxi service that does not make sense and then disappear. Please provide your booking reference number so we can proceed with full refund. If you are not customer of Medellin City Services® please relocate your review accordingly. Look forward to hear from you, Camilo Uribe Medellin City Services®
