Book this combo tour now and discover Medellín's main icon places while saving time and money, in company of our professional guides. This full-day tour takes you from top Medellín's attractions to the famous Christmas lights while providing a sense of the local gastronomy along the way. Tour may be steered around according to your preferences and stops can be made during your journey. You may steer the tour around so feel free to start with early lunch or you may also do an early dinner instead in order to catch the spectacular Christmas lights later at night.
Once our bilingual driver has met you at the hotel or the location you have suggested for pick up, tour heads north on a customized journey by an air-conditioner car, just minutes away. First, tour stops at Pueblito Paisa (Little Town), which is a cozy replica of a typical Colombian village sitting right in the middle of the city that allows you to visualize Medellín's valley with an amazing 360º views. There is enough free time to walk around and get an overview on the whole valley and the way it has been built. Take the best postcard pictures and get ready to discover the rest of the City of Eternal Spring because the fun has only started. There are convenient facilities to grab snacks at any time and is recommended to bring cash and/or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards. After a guided visit, our local guide will wait for you to go on to the next stop in downtown, to visit the Barefoot Park, the Park of Lights and the infamous Fernando Botero Plaza where 23 amazing statues of the most popular local artist reside. At the end of the day you are headed to the main city boulevards to contemplate the spectacular Christmas lights that have made the city one of the top worldwide destinations for such holidays. This final part of the journey takes a couple of hours and stops are made along the way to take photos and walk around the lights. After approximately 8 hours of a fantastic journey, you should be already familiar with the city and main icons as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
