Your professional guide will meet with you at your accommodation in late morning, then embark on a personalized tour by an air-conditioned transportation.

The tour heads to one of the most fascinating scenarios just outside the city. In El Retiro you can admire amazing views of the outskirts and appreciate amazing mansions as the journey takes you to a more rural section with exotic tropical forest known to be one of the first massive liberation of slaves in America by Miss. Javiera Londoño in 1757. Upon arrival to this first stop you may walk around to take photos. There are cafeterias and restaurants and we suggest you bring cash since not all shops take credit cards.

The tour then goes on to El Peñol, a village that was relocated during the past century in order to create a spectacular man-made lake called Guatapé. This quick stop will show you a replica of the old Peñol village before its relocation. At Guatapé, the Zocalo village is the ideal place to enjoy lunch while sharing outstanding views of the lake.

At the end of the day, the tour heads back to Medellín passing along beautiful towns around the region. A perfect way to contemplate amazing scenarios of Antioquia and take a closer look to local customs and traditions, and stops can be made at your discretion to take photos, get souvenirs, or try local snacks, etc. Head to the main city boulevards to contemplate the spectacular Christmas lights that have made the city one of the top worldwide destinations for the holidays. This final part of the journey takes a couple of hours and stops are made along the way to take photos and walk around the lights.

After this fantastic journey, you should be familiar with the city and its main icons as your private driver/guide takes you back to your hotel or any other location you feel like.
