Get to know one of the most important and relevant cultures in the history of our country: The paisas!
The historic center of Medellín is the best living example we have to show what we were and who we are. Come with us and discover the stories of its streets!
We will immerse ourselves among the streets of Medellín and its people to understand the history, development, conflict and the social commitment of an inclusive and innovative city!
From the hand of local "Paisas" guides, you will understand how we reverted our dark and violent past, product of the drug trafficking of the 80's and 90's, into a bright future that made us stronger.
Thanks to the collective resilient effort and social investment that today allows us to walk, and live in the city of "Eternal Spring", we will visit the unmissable places of the city such as the "Plaza de Botero" and "La Libertad", "Parque de las Luces" and "Los Pies Descalzos".
During the tour, we will move between passages, we will cross the famous Junin street, and we will discover the essence of the center of Medellín. Do not miss our unique and original tour where we continue to write history together!

We took the “City Center” free tour with Daniel and it was great! He is a passionate guide who is full of information, who gives meaning to the tour he offers, who does not hesitate to discuss controversial subjects!
Amazing tour! ! Very informative, easy to understand and very engaging! ! I will recommend it 100%! I will definitely use this tour again when I visit Colombia. Very polite and energetic tour guide. Santiago was our tour guide and he made this tour so much fun!
I loved the Medellin Free Walking Tour with Beyond Colombia. Super interesting all the stories and the setting of the city center. Deisy was super descriptive with all the details of the history of Colombia since colonial times and recounted the moments for us in a very authentic and personal way. She felt like being guided by a great friend who knows everything about Medellin. We always feel safe, entertained and happy
A very interesting tour through the center of Medellín, Deisy is very nice and makes time fly by, you can tell that she likes her job and telling the story of her city :)
One of the best tours I have been on. Manuel was very attentive and explained everything in detail. Very good to see the emotion and happiness in the speech. He makes the tour so much cooler. I recommend 100%!
