Don't Take Our Word For It...
Once Of A Lifetime Experience! The Best!
We booked Medellin travels for a tour of El Piedra Penol. We were picked up on time and greeted by Alex who spoke perfect English (he lived in the US for years) and was very friendly and informative. The car was a brand new SUV and made us feel very safe. His love for the land and his country was inspiring. We became friends over the day as we climbed La Piedra and he was taking pictures for us the whole time. He made the experience just perfect. He went above and beyond to make sure this trip was unforgettable. Because of Alex and Medellin Travels, we have a shared love of Colombia and the people. The trip was supposed to end at 4pm but Alex took his time showing us the land and the culture and didn’t rush the trip one bit and we didn’t get back till 7, which was fine by us. We didn’t want it to end! That kind of service is unheard of back in the US and we will always remember this trip and be forever grateful to Medellin Travels, a family company for the lifetime of memories. Thank you!
A Fantastic Experience!
This was a fantastic tour. We now alot more about the man Pablo Escobar. We did a bit of research on TripAdvisor and decided in Medellin travels with 80 excellent reviews. We were delighted we did.Alex and his wife were just amazing on the 2 tours we did with them.Day one Lina collected us at the hotel and first we visited the house where He died (most people believe he shot him self )Then we went to Pablo’s grave.Then we visited His mansion in the city.It was so big like apartment block.Lina drove us to other sites associated with Pablo Escobar.Lina’s knowledge of the whole Medellin Cartel was mind blowing.She told us things that we never heard before. Day 2.Alex took us to The prison Pablo built in the mountains.Its a long drive but well worth it.Alex really took care of us and the trip was very easy as we were traveling in a really comfortable new jeep.Alex was like our own body guard for the day.He made sure we were safe at all times.The prison was like a hotel in the mountains with football pitch and helicopter pad.Again Alex gave all the facts in great detail.I can not recommend this tour highly enough.We also like to wish Lina & Alex great success with there foundation help kids from the barrios in Medellin.
5 Star's Simply Isn't Enough For Medellin Travels
Any tour company can drive you to Gautape, show you the rooftop where Pablo was killed by police (or was he?) and take you up to Comuna 13, but Lina and Alex can give you the inside scoop, the little details that really knowledgeable can do. But that’s not where is ends. They are super helpful people the way only a family business will be even replying to text messages well past closing. Their tours are great, thats a given but they are great people, always willing to help a trailer in need. Going so far as to help me get an appointment with an eye doctor, who spoke English. Need a suggestion for dinner, they will (and not because of a kickback) or a massage. They treat you like family and that’s why 5 starts isn’t enough.
Tour of Medellin
Medellin Travels is one of the best tour companies I’ve encountered over my 30 years of traveling. Alex was very informative of Colombia’s history (particularly Medellin) – it’s not the kind you read about from books, website, etc. He actually knows more of the inside stories that other tour companies don’t. We did the Pablo Escobar tour and Guatape tour with Alex last May (2017). I was blown away by how much he knows about Pablo Escobar’s history/story. From beginning til end, he was professional and impeccable with his service. He kept in touch with us from the time he left his office to pick us up from our hotel and made sure we have all the essentials we need for our tour. Customer service was SUPERB!!! I ended up using his company again when I came back in September and, as expected, the Graffiti tour of Comuna 13 was awesome. He introduced me to one of the best Graffiti artists (Chota) in Medellin. I loved his art so much that I commissioned him to do 2 Graffiti arts on canvas for me. Alex and Linda go beyond what normal tour companies do. They gave me an experience I will cherish and remember. It was tailored specifically for me and I truly appreciate it. They are the warmest, professional and hospitable couple I’ve encountered in my life.
Amazing Coffee Tour Around Jardin!
Our group of 5 did a full-day tour with Lina as our guide – and we would recommend it to any coffee fanatic, as well as anyone looking to see the countryside of Antioquia. Lina was a great guide, and she was a wealth of knowledge about the history and current developments of the region and Medellin. We stopped in the beautiful town of Jardin and had a typical Paisa lunch, and got to do a taste test at one of the local roasters. The tour of the coffee farm was not only beautiful given the scenery, but very informative into the process of how coffee actually gets to the table. The family was incredibly generous and welcomed us to their home. Overall it was an authentic experience that I would highly recommend, and one I will never forget.
