This was, honestly, one of the best walking tours I have ever taken. I was informed, questions answered, saw places I would not have known about on my own and wasn't exhausted at the end of it. Transit was included (a welcome surprise).

Time was taken for the group in both English and French and I don't think anyone was left out. Thank you for an excellent morning in Medellín. I only wish I had a map to mark some of the points to revisit or spend more time.

We believe in all-curated and hassle free experiences, so for us a pay-what-you-wish tour is not a synonym of a cheap thing. We love taking good care of our guests, glad you had a blast: come back and spread the voice!!! Onygotours Founder

Braulio led my tour today which was really informative and super fun! My family is from Colombia and I wanted to get a better idea of Medellin’s gems. The group was intimate and allowed for lots of questions (all of which Braulio was super informed on) and fun dialogue. We rode the new tram, learned about some of the street art, took the metro cable all the way up, got a sick view of the city, tasted some of Medellin’s most delicious fruits and finished at the house of memories. If you’re /Spanish speaking, this tour is def for you. Braulio is a masterful polyglot.

Awesome! Not touristy but yet touristy fun. Braulio has been the excellent english speaking native tour guide to make your first half day a good introduction to Medellín transportation and historical society background.

Braulio was a great guide who brought us on a tour that had a slightly different itinerary from the rest. He was also one of few who had a walk on a Saturday afternoon. We used a variety of public transportation which was pretty cool for a someone who’d literally just arrived in Medellin. We took the cable car up to La Sierra, walked around San Antonio station, visited Museo Casa de la Memoria, amongst other locales, leaving Plaza Botero and other more “mainstream” sights to do on your own.
