TJulio and his team were amazing. Julio set up transport in Medellín, a city Tour, a flower tour in Santa Clara, a hiking trip in Parque Arvi, a visit to Communa 13. In Cartagena he set up our transport, a city tour. […] If you plan to go to Colombia I give Julio and his team my highest recommendation.

Overview of your tour
The mountains’ luscious green is just within reach as soon as we leave Medellín. After just one hour in the car, we arrive at this natural place. Among the old train tracks we’ll stumble upon an old traditional arepa restaurant. Arepas are the very basis of Colombian cuisine, and today, you’ll learn just how we make them — old-style! With the cornmeal between your fingers, experts will guide you in making your very own breakfast. After we squash our hunger, we’ll continue through this gorgeous locale toward the old train tunnels. Another traditional stop awaits us, and it’s time to sample mazamorra, a traditional drink made with corn and milk. Though it may remind you of Corn Flakes, trust us — this is far from it! Savoring these flavors is an appetizer you’re sure to never forget.

My family of 4 (including my parents and sister) did a Pablo Escobar tour with Ana Velez, followed by a city tour of Medellin. Ana is one of the best tour guides I have ever worked with…
I traveled to Medellin with my parents. I arranged all tours and services such as airport transfers with Colombia Travel Operator previous to my arrival and everything was amazing!…
We took a private tour with Juan Carlos. Everything was perfect! He has an excellent knowledge about Medellin and speak perfect English and Spanish. We took the metro, metro cable, we went to Botero Plaza and comuna 13. Thank you Juan Carlos and Colombia travel! Now I’m in love with Medellín.
Julio was incredibly knowledgable about Escobar and the history of violence in the city. The message of change and transformation given with the tour was really heartfelt and inspiring. Communal 13 is a must see for anyone travelling to Medellin.
