What you'll do

You're going to be introduce to the unknown and fascinating history of Colombia, a country where reality exceeds fiction, full of color, passion and life. That's the real Colombia, considered one of the happiest countries in the world!

But we cant' deny that our history has been written with blood, like it's said: "God made our land so beautiful, it was unfair to the rest of the world, so to even the score, God populated our land with a race of evil men"

Corporate teams, friends, families, date nights, individuals and birthday reunions are great for this experience and anybody that likes to learn and discover new things!

I'll share Colombia's amazing geography, multi-cultures, history, diversity, landscapes, crazy facts, bizarre stories, personal experiences, we'll discuss a few things, pop some quizzes and make a it challenge!

- Why Colombia? What's a megadiverse country?
- Cultural and historical?
- What's the difference between guerrillas and paramilitaries? Is drugs the problem?
- Pablo Escobar?
- The most happiest country?
- And any question you have, I'd be happy to answer.

This event could be very helpful when planning your future trip to Colombia and Medellín.

Don't hesitate to contact me regarding new dates and times, I'd be happy to accommodate you

I love what I do! I love Colombia as a whole, the diversity in every aspect, the different climates, landscapes, geography, cultures, ethnicities and the amazing and crazy history that "blows" everybody's mind.

I am professional guide with over 10 years of experience in the city of Medellín and the Department of Antioquia, the region I live, the city I love and the culture I feel absolute passion for. I was doing tours every day before this crazy pandemic, but now technology has showed us the way. Fluent in english since I live a big part of my childhood in United States and built a unique point of view being grown with both cultures.

It is really recommended to hear from an expert about culture, history of Colombia and about a topic very difficult like the history and suffer of Colombia because of Pablo Escobar. I learned to know new aspects and also new regions to visit in Colombia.

This was such a great experience. We got to hear a lot about the rich columbian culture and are now convinced that we must make a trip soon! Daniel was exceptionally entertaining and a great story teller. He was also extremely passionate about his country which made the time more enjoyable and easy to follow. Super friendly too!

It's always delightful to see a country through the eyes of a local, and Fernando is clearly not only knowledgeable and passionate about Colombia's history and culture, but truly enjoys sharing that in an enthusiastic and engaging way. While he had a planned "itinerary," he was open to any specific direction I wanted to pursue or questions I wanted to ask. He covered a great deal of information in a short time, but kept it interactive via polls sprinkled throughout and via the use of a variety of media (photos, maps, videos). Good sense of humor was an added plus. Terrific experience!

I Wil definitely reach out to him when we will be able to travel again and when I have the chance to visit this amazing country. Thank you for making me and my friends travel with your words and the images that you have shown us!
