It was an amazing and very well organized tour. Our tour guide Mateo was great and the tour was also bilingual, which made it so easy for my son who only speaks english to understand and also enjoy the tour. All the landmarks were very well explained, tour bus was very comfortable with reclining chairs and clean with A/C, and the landmarks and towns were absolutely beautiful! They also provided us with a very traditional and delicious breakfast and lunch. I recommended the tour to other family members and friends and told them it’s a must do tour especially with Viaja Medellin!

This tour was one of the best I have had! The breakfast and lunch were delicious! Mateo was AMAZING he was super nice, respectful, professional and passionate about what he does. Everything was great!!

Great tour. Allows for enough time to explore each part. Bus driver was a wild driver but seemed like he knew what he was doing. Overall, recommend booking this tour.

Great tour. Ginna is very good and helpful tour guide and also polite and positive person. She knows english well, so I would recomend this tour to foreign tourists.
