Monsa was a fantastic guide. She had a lot of energy and enthralled us with her enthusiastic story telling. She shared her own personal experiences. She also did a good job at telling all sides of the story and Medellin's history.

A very knowledgeable guide provided tons of useful information with insight into the history and politics of the area concentrating mostly between 1950s up to present. A+ quality.

We were taken around Medellín central by Pablo (not Pedro) on the afternoon tour. He brought the city to life with great stories and knowledge, and a good dose of humour as well! Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Medellin as a must-do for their trip

The guide discusses the past and modern history of Medellin and takes you on a fairly extensive downtown walk. Our guide, Natalia, made the walk outstanding but I suspect all the guides are excellent.

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.
