Medellin Professional Private Tour Guide
I went to Medellin Colombia on July 22, 2021 with my partner and hired Carlos Perez with Wingman Adventour to take us on multiple tours.
Wow! Was I glad I did.
Carlos is exceptionally knowledgeable and professional.
He is passionate about his country and it's history.
He grew up in Miami so he speaks perfect English and Spanish.
He drove us in a private car, but has availability to go in larger vehicles and buses for large parties.
He picked us up from the airport on time and ready. The prices he charged were much less than taking a taxi from the airport. (By half)
We stopped and saw a waterfall and had lunch at a restaurant he recommended.
The food was FABULOUS and cheap, cheap, cheap. Like $3.50 a plate for steak cheap.
The next day we took a city tour including Communa 13 and a Pablo Escobar tour.
His knowledge of the area and events was amazing.
I met other travelers on the plane who took the same tours with other operators and was telling them about the history that Carlos told me and they had no idea. Their tour operator did not tell them a fraction of what we learned from Carlos.
The following day we went to Santa Fe de Antioquia, a charming colonial city just outside of Medellin. Cobblestone streets, tamarind candles, 500 year old buildings and Metropolitan Cathedral. Again he found an incredible restaurant where we had the bandejas paisas, the typical meal for lunch consisting of steak, chicken or chicharrone, salad, rice, beans and fried banana. Delicious.. and CHEAP!
The next day wen went to Guatape. Guatape is an adorable little city on the lake about an hour outside of Medellin. Cobblestone streets, tons of tiny shops and restaurants and bars, all decorated and colorful. One street had umbrellas hung overhead! What a great photo op!
But the real reason to go there is for the Piedra de Guatape. The rock!
At 7,000 feet, it's high! But once there you can climb 760 steps to the top!
Amazing views, great, great trip.
At all points, Carlos was professional, helpful, friendly, accommodating and I think quite reasonable for his services.
I'll guarantee you that my trip would have been much less interesting without him.
Carlos Perez and Wingman Adventours is a must have if you are visiting Medellin.
