This tour is the perfect introduction to the beautiful landscapes of the Medellin valley.

You are sure to fall in love with this town and its charming colors and vintage feel, as if it is straight from a García Márquez novel. Finally, you will get a chance to explore Rionegro city, nestled amongst the Andes with its dark river that has climbed all the way up from the depths of the Amazon.
