What you'll do

We'll visit the old railway station, the first step of progress in Medellín.
Close to the largest fired brick building in the world, we will walk along Junín Street, whose route was the grandparents' family walk.
I will show you how Medellín survived drug trafficking, guerrillas, paramilitaries, and criminal gangs.
Fernando Botero and many other artists in the city will let us enjoy their works throughout the walk.
We will finish with a Tango flavor coffee, which has been served for more than 60 years in my enigmatic city.
Other highlights
It is a hike and it can be demanding, however, we will not rush our pace too much and will stop when appropriate to tell stories, eat or rest.

Where you'll be

The baroque style of the Church of San Ignacio, the Roman of the Cathedral, the colonial of the Candelaria, accompanied by the famous sculptures of the Alpujarra and the Plaza Botero will show you the love for art that we paisas have.
The stories of the old railroad, the Plaza de Cisneros, the invasion neighborhoods (seen from the Metrocable) and the teachings of development (from the Tram) will link them sentimentally with my Medellín.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 22 reviews.

En esta experiencia no sentí que iba con un guía sino con mi mejor amigo, Jerónimo es muy atento, alegre y cuando narra cada lugar se ve que lo hace con pasión por su trabajo, fue una gran experiencia, y además es un excelente fotografo

I did the tour with a friend upon first arriving in Medellin Jeronimo did a great job introducing us to the sights and history of Medellin. The tour moved at comfortable pace and he was flexible in going along with our varied interests. Jeronimo was a WEATLH of information and his enthusiasm and insights made the tour interesting. I highly recommend this tour to any visitor to his remarkable city!!

This experience is well thought out and well planned. This was my second time in Medellion and I saw parts of this beautiful city that i would never have the chance to experience on my own

Esta experiencia fue muy enriquecedora, ya que nos mostro una vista de Medellín desde su perspectiva como habitante, nos contó anécdotas que el ha ido recopilando con gente mayor, nos dió un recorrido por sitios emblemáticos de la ciudad que también se han ido modificando por el paso del tiempo, dimos un tour por el metro y el metrocable, en todo momento nos tuvo mucha paciencia y abierto a preguntas. Muy recomendable

Jeronimo was a good guide and provided a historical background of the many places we visited in our walk. I wouldn't have been able to do this on my own, and I'm really grateful for the experience. Thanks for the walk, conversation, pictures, and souvenir Jeronimo!
