This tour guide was provided by Medellin Travels and included prompt hotel pick up. Our tour guide was Daniela, she was very personable and outgoing. The trip started off at Plaza Botero where we were able to see some of the typical statues of the time under the Fernando Botero time period. Daniela was very knowledgeable and ensured any questions we had were answered. The plaza itself is very busy and has many people walking around including beggars. We were also able to see churches that were once designated by race and skin color, a part of history which seems to permeate all colonized countries. We were then able to take the Metro train which can be very busy in peek hours to a cable car (gondola lift) all the way up to Comunas 1 which offers expansive and breathtaking views of the city. The town is very humble and there are people from all walks of life. Daniela was very informative and made sure we know what was safe and what areas should be avoided. I would highly recommend this tour for adults and probably for groups of 5 or smaller. There is a great deal of walking (as it is a WALKING tour), stair climbing, and overall moderate physical activity that very overweight tourists, the elderly, or children might not be able to tolerate well. The price for the tour was acceptable, not a "bank for your buck" deal for sure, but it is enjoyable and does give you a great understanding of the early days of Colombia and Medellin. I would recommend doing this tour before any of the other tours as it offers a great introduction. The tour does offer a view of some of the less than glamorous parts of town which includes seeing the homeless, beggars, street-walkers, and very motivated street vendors. I never felt unsafe or overly concerned, but there can be a sense of unease for some if they are not used to traveling internationally which is why I would recommend traveling with a friend or partner. Based on my overall experience, I would recommend this tour.
