Join our tour do discover what makes Antioquia’s capital a city of innovation and why in 2013 Medellín was named “The World’s Most Innovative City of the Year”, beating out even New York and Tel Aviv. Have a look at impressive buildings, enjoy the cable car ride and get to know the warmth of Medellín’s people.

After picking you up at your hotel we’ll start our tour near the Metro station Universidad, at the Parque de los Deseos, the Wishes Park. Here we’ll get a first impression about how building a place inviting people of all ages to relax and spend time together can improve the community’s spirit and appearance.

Next, we’ll walk pass the Metro station and arrive at the Botanical Garden where we get a chance to admire Colombia’s huge variety of plants, especially inside the fascinating Orchideorama with beautiful orchids, bromeliads, and fern.

Now we are ready to board the Metro and the Metrocable and experience how easy it became to reach other parts of the city without having to drive through heavy traffic and without having to walk for hours through narrow alleyways to reach a destination when there is no room for building streets. We’ll take the Metro all the way to the end, change into the Metrocable and enjoy a ride over colorful painted roofs, another of Medellín’s innovation which made the city more attractive for both living and visiting.

Reaching our next stop - the Santo Domingo Library - we indulge in a magnificent view over Medellín before we learn about what the library has to offer. We get to understand why projects like providing access to computers as well as offering daycare for children with opportunities to do sports or being creative helped a lot to make a popular area out of this neighborhood and made its inhabitants proud to live there.

Back on the Metrocable we’ll ascend into the mountains and continue our tour to Arví Park. Breathing in fresh pure air we are amazed of spectacular views of a vast beautiful fog forest, a paradise full of wildflowers and butterflies. We also get the chance to visit prehispanic constructions such as platforms and antique buildings.

Feeling energized we return to the city and you can decide to explore the city furthermore, have lunch at one of the excellent restaurants our guide can recommend, or you let yourself be driven back to your hotel.
