3 years ago I went to NYC to live there for one year, being there I worked as a tour guide, so I know what a tourist want to avoid, lines, traffic and massive tours with 40 people, that's why, I designed several experiences to know the city by parts and walking through its streets, as a local, sharing with you, landmarks that the turists by themselves would'nt know, introducing you local people and giving you the oportunity to know the real Medellín, and seeing how we passed from being the most dangerous to the most innovative city of the world, you'll know past, present and future of the city
