Overview of your tour

Explore Medellín in a private vehicle and tick off the must-sees in just 4 hours. Prepare to be wowed throughout the tour, especially at the three main stops we usually make. The pueblito paisa (traditional Colombian village) sitting atop Nutibara Hill offers not only breathtaking panoramic views of Medellín, but also numerous artisanal shops for you to find the perfect memento. No trip to Medellín is complete without a visit to Botero Plaza, where we’ll find sculptures by the Medellín-born artist Fernando Botero, famous for his depictions of figures with exaggerated volume. Medellín is a steep city with several uphill inclines — but don’t worry, we’ll do as the locals do and use the awesome Metrocable network to conquer the hills and ensure we get the best views around.

Though this is the classic route that we recommend, please do not hesitate to let us know upon booking what interests you! We are more than happy to alter the itinerary to incorporate sights that you would like to see or places you would like to visit.
