*WARNING: Please don't arrive to our tour after having eaten a large breakfast. There will be a variety and an abundance of food to sample. Should you choose to arrive on a full stomach, you may not get the intended experience and enjoyment from our excursions.*

**While we endeavour to do our best to stay within schedule, all departure and arrival times given are approximate. Medellin traffic can be very busy at times, so we strongly advise that you don't plan schedules around our tour guaranteeing you will be at a certain location at a given time. We do not take any responsibility for our customers missing any connecting travel or events. All bookings made with us are to be done with this clear understanding in mind.**

***Please bring Colombian Peso cash with you. Your tour is all inclusive apart from our stop in Octava Maravilla who do not accept foreign credit or debit cards.

The fruits you may want to sample include melon, papaya, granada (pomegranate), manday mango, tommy mango, uchuva (golden berry), chirimolla (cherimoya), guayaba feijoa (pineapple guava), guayabe pera (guava), guayabe manzana (apple guava) and mangostino (mangosteen). While all of the above are grown in Colombia, many are known to be grown in tropical climates around the world! 

Following the tropical fruit tasting you will take a very short walk to join us for a typical Paisa (Antioquia native) light lunch. See the images below for what will be offered.

3rd Tour Stop - Pueblito Paisa

Pueblito Paisa is a small scale picturesque replica of a typical turn of the century Antioquian village. Located right in the center of the Aburrá Valley where Medellin is built, it offers spectacular panoramic views of the entire city of Medellin. Unfortunately the main viewing area is closed right now but you can still see the same sights from the top floor of the city museum right beside it. Your tour ticket includes entrance into the museum.

4th Tour Stop - Cementario Jardines Montesacro in Itagüí

Situated in the Medellin suburb of Itagüí we visit the picturesque location of Cementario Jardines Montesacro where you will get to visit the graveyard of the notorious drug lords Pablo Escobar, Gustavo Gaviria and Griselda Blanco. Our local guide will give you some insight into what it was like living in Medellin during the height of the power of the Medellin Cartel. You will also hear why there is a constant watch being kept over Pablo Escobar's grave as seen in the 4th image in the slides below.

5th Tour Stop - Octava Maravilla in the beautiful hills of Sabaneta

Octava Maravilla boasts one of, if not the most spectacular view over the entire Aburrá Valley and Medellin itself. Although Sabaneta is not technically a part of Medellin, the metropolitan area has grown to such an extent that it's almost impossible to tell the difference where Medellin stops and the numerous suburbs begin. We will stop here for roughly an hour, or however long it takes for everyone to get served, finish their meal and get the photos they desire. The cost of your meal in Octava Maravilla is the one thing your tour ticket does not cover! The prices of the different dishes varies too much for us to offer a one price fits all cover cost in our pricing. You will need to bring cash with you for this final experience as they don't accept foreign credit or debit card payments!

6th & Final Tour Stop - Sierra Blanca IPA Brewery (Cerveceria) in Envigado

Here we stop for about an hour in the relaxing leafy suburb of Envigado to visit Carlos and Ana Maria and their innovative IPA micro-brewery. They usually have at least six different types of beers brewing at any given time with the number rising up to ten depending on the time​ of year. You will get a tour of the facility and learn the process of brewing the different variations of beers they have on offer. And of course, you will get to try at least six small glasses of the different types of beer they have available.
