Tour description

This full-day tour is designed for those who want to get a comprehensive idea of the city, including the dark mafia days and the well-recognized Christmas lights. From city renovation after the drug lords to the famous Christmas lights, get the most of your visit while getting a taste of the local gastronomy along the way. Tour may be steered around according to your preferences and stops can be made during your journey. 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 pickup, tour heads south on a customized journey by an air-conditioner car just minutes away. Our first stop takes place at El Poblado to take a closer look at the origin and evolution of Medellín's top boss and his empire. There is enough free time to walk around and get the best postcard pictures. There are convenient facilities to grab snacks at any time so 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 to discover how Pablo Escobar ended up caught and what was the impact to the city. Just let your guide know when you start to feel hungry so you can enjoy a tasty traditional lunch at one of the well-recognized local restaurants. 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.
