Cynthia "A good introductory tour of Colombia. Standout experiences were the walking tour around central Medellin and the optional visit to Comuna 13 in Medellin with a guide to explain the history of Medellin's troubles and the origin of the street art. Be sure to add additional time in Bogota as the trip spends virtually no time there and the city boasts a wonderful Gold Museum, the Botero Museum and mo..."

    An excellent tour which included places we would never have dreamed of visiting ourselves, but it was not a ‘9-day’ one!

    Background: I don't do tours. However, I was won over with this tour. Given how brilliant this tour was and how excellent our CEO proved to be, I'll be recommending it (and G) to everyone who'll listen.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Would it be fine to fly from Salento to Medellín instead of taking the bus?

      G adventures confirmed that it is totally fine, so long as you understood you would need to make your own way to and from the airports.

    • Does this tour include a trip to Escobars self made prison?

      The prison is not included in this itinerary.

      However, it looks like La Catedral is about an hour away from the city of Medellin. You will have one full free day here, so if there also others who want to visit it, you would be able to organise this with the CEO right there.

    • Are flights included in this trip?

      Please note that the tour does not included flights. Refer to the 'What's Included' Section of this tour to see what is and isn't covered in the tour price.
