Once your bilingual driver has met you at the hotel, tour heads north on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. First stop takes place at Pueblito Paisa (little town), cozy replica of a typical Colombian village sitting in the center of the city which allows you to share outstanding panoramic views of the Medellin valley. There is enough free time to walk around and take the best postcard photos or use bathrooms and 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 downtown to visit the barefoot park, park of lights, and the infamous Fernando Botero Plaza where 23 amazing statues of the most popular local artist reside.

 

Just let your guide know when you start to feel hungry so you can enjoy a tasty traditional lunch or dinner as per itinerary at one of the well-recognized local restaurants. Snacks and samples are included in price so feel free to request your guide at any time.

 

During the afternoon, you will visit Medellin´s most traditional “Fondas”, native stores with exotic decoration and typical Colombian music, a perfect compilation of common artefacts, appliances, paintings, and religious icons which display centuries of cultural heritage that represent the core Paisa values. First stop takes place near downtown at 70 boulevard to discover one of the most representative Fondas in the area. There is enough free time to walk around and take vibrant pictures.

 

After a guided visit to the warm boulevard, your Medellin City Services® professional guide will drive south for the next Fonda stop as you are informed of the hottest spots and popular places on the way, allowing you to better comprehend the city and absorb the local atmosphere. Feel free to make a sudden stop for pictures, restrooms, or to extra grab beverages. Second stop involves the magnificent Envigado Plaza where charming Fondas are quite popular among locals rather than foreigners so you can better interact with natives instead of foreigners such as the case of common tourist destinations. Last and most remarkable stop takes place just a few minutes away further south at cozy Sabaneta, a “rural” village that has been absorbed through decades by the ever-increasing construction projects that expand our city towards the outskirts.

 

It has already been a pleasure to have you around Medellin´s most entertaining Fondas and our Medellin City Services® team definitely looks forward to welcoming you and/or your family and friends in the near future so feel free to ask your guide for info and special deals as you are headed back. After approximately 8 hours of a fantastic journey, you should be already familiar with the interesting traditions of this vibrant city and its authentic lifestyle as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
