I took the Free Walking Tour with Carolina and it was fantastic. She had both great humor and knowledge of the city. She was able to show us around and make us feel welcome to ask any questions about Colombia and Medellin's history - no topics were off limits. I highly recommend!

Diomer was our tour guide on this Barrio Transformation Tour and he did an incredible job. We thought we were going to get the story of how the Moravia barrio rose from a literal mountain of trash, but we were treated to so much more! We walked away with an intricate understanding of Colombian social programs like the welfare, health insurance and education systems. Also, the Moravia residents are some of the warmest you will come across in Medellin (and that's saying something given how friendly most Paisas are).

Our tour guide was a Medellin woman named Monsa, and she did a wonderful job of discussing history and culture and tying it to the rebirth of Medellin. She said Medellin wants to be remembered for art and optimism, not the drug related parts of its history. This tour put our visit into perspective and is a great thing to do right away when you get there.
