Owner description: It motivates us to go all over the city we love with those who visit us, to be able to assist them, to show them every corner and to give them to try the best of our gastronomy. Thinking about making your stay more pleasant, we have designed a series of experiences, all inclusive, to the places we consider reflect our true soul. We are aware of the positive change we have had as a city, but we also understand that thereare still many challenges. We saw in the increase of tourism, an unparalleled opportunity to face one of them. To show the world the real Medellín, the Medellín of today. Committed to change, we have joined the national program of Community Tourism Friends of Tourism Schools. With this, we hope that the communities we visit will be favored, and all our hosts will be those who have suffered directly from the prejudices of growing up and living surrounded by violence and poverty.

Awesome tour! Definitely the highlight of my trip. David was so knowledgeable about Medellin and the tour was small so I got a lot of individual attention. I wish I was staying in Medellin longer so I could do another Soul Tour!

Johnny, thanks so much for allowing us to guide you through our city and humble neighborhoods. No matter what happened in the past in Medellin, people from different countries around the world is opening the mind and deciding to visit new places in a different way and when they choose Aburra Valley they simply get impressed with our unique manner to sorted things out. We went from negative to possitive and you are part of this amazing change. Hope to see you soon, my friend!

WOW! This tour was absolutely amazing!!! A must do if you want to see the real Medellin and truly experience the people, food and culture of this awesome city. David, our guide, was the best. He picked us up in the morning and took us all around the city. Everything was taken care of from beginning to end. We (my boyfriend and I) were able to get details and history of the city while taking in the sites, sounds and taste of Medellin. We spent the first part of the day in Moravia, a colorful neighborhood in the city. We experienced fresh fruit juices, coffee and snacks while in Moravia. The people and views were fantastic (make sure to get some churros while there). We then were taken to a local market where we sampled local fresh fruit (delicious)! We took in lunch while at the market and then headed to Communa 13. We met up with another tour while in Communa 13 and got detailed history of this transformed community. There was super cool graffiti art along the way. Overall, we would highly recommend Soul Tours. David was excellent and we were so lucky to have him guide us during our vacation to beautiful Medellin. It really made our short stay magical!

Lexi, it was a pleasure meeting you and Jesse.
Showing you the actual situation of the city makes me happy. Taking you to traditional places; places that a tourist won't have in mind for a day in Medellin nourish our minds and souls (specially the ones of our young leaders; Miller, Stiven, Yes, Chota).
If your day was remarkable, mine was meaningful!
