Tour description provided by Viator

This tour travels by Metro or Cable Metro and will let us make stops at certain locations that show the evolution of Medellin as a global city. Experience a completely new and improved city, boasting the only metro system of the country, a symbol of the Paisa desire to excel and bring quality of life to locals. The system has been bringing service for a couple of decades already. Discover how this magnificent transportation system integrates main cultural icons of the city with the highest technology in order to incorporate amazing structures like the cable car or the recently added Tranvía (LRT) in downtown.
Once our bilingual driver has met you at the hotel or the location you have suggested, the tour heads north on a customized journey by an air conditioned car. First stop takes place at downtown to contemplate the 23 statues donated by our most popular local artist Fernando Botero. At Botero Plaza, there is enough free time to walk around and take the best postcard pictures so just get ready to discover the rest of Medellin and enjoy the only metro system in Colombia.Along the way we will find convenient facilities to grab snacks at any time. It is recommended to bring cash (Colombian pesos) since not every store takes credit or debit cards. After the guided visit, our local guide will wait for you for at least 15 minutes before we go on to the next stop at The Botanical Garden where you will experience the most amazing variety of local flowers, birds and butterflies. After a few minutes of a pleasant walk around The Botanic Garden, the tour gets back on the Metro train to continue to the amazing library of Santo Domingo Savio. A donation from the kings of Spain in order to improve the quality of life in this comuna. Feel free to check out this modern library or just keep going up towards the very top of the mountain.This is a fascinating experience that not only shows the real Medellin, but also provides amazing views when moving from the urban area to the other side of the mountain to visit the natural reserve of Parque Arví. Just fly over the three tops and enjoy the pleasant scenario of the country side. After approximately 4-hour of this fantastic journey around the only metro in Colombia, you should be already familiar with this very innovative city and main cultural icons as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
