Take this! Great introduction to downtown Medellin and the tour guide (Edgar) was awesome. Also very well planned bathroom and food breaks.

Overall the tour was well organised and our guide, Juan, was quite accommodating and answered all the questions. The only reason why I’m giving this a four star is because we felt the the last two stops were not needed and could have been skipped...More

You can only book the tour online. I believe the tours open up online at 6 pm two days before... So for example, a Thursday tour would open at 6 pm on Tuesday. ;)

At the tour, the guide explained that the tips received was their salary and recomended 35 to 50,000 COP. I paid 40,000. It is done discreetly so pay what it is worth to you. Well worth 50,000 if you can afford it.
