Programma

On this tour, we understand the transformation Medellin has experienced through the eyes of the farmers or peasants: the ones that made the city grow by migrating from all over the country because of forced displacement or looking for new opportunities. We start by taking the tram to visit La Placita de Florez one of the oldest farmers markets in town.

Later, we will go to Comuna 8, specifically to a neighborhood called El Faro (The Lighthouse) named like this because of its stunning view over the valley and "imaginary" because the city says it doesn't belong to Medellín. Here we take a tour with a local guide that works on the continuous development of the community, supporting art and social projects. We will learn how they created the neighborhood by themselves and how has been the process of integration with the city. The best thing about this is that by doing this tour you're contributing to these projects.

After having a walk through the colorful alleys of El Faro we enter a beautiful forest and in 25 minutes we reach the peak of the Cerro Pan de Azucar, one of the most emblematic mountains and the highest peak of the city to enjoy the best view you can have in Medellín.
Other things to note
We will walk through a good amount of stairs so I recommend to wear sport shoes. This tour is not suited for people with physical disabilities.

After traveling for a while I realized the potential my city had. I started to study a lot and have been working as a tour guide for over a year now with more than 3 companies and now I'm starting my own called Nomad. I just finished a Technology on tourism guidance to become a professional on the field and I have assisted to 3 boot camps to learn how to develop touristic experiences. I'm convinced that sustainable tourism can make Colombia a better place. I know I can help bring progress to communities I visit with my guests and that benefit can be for both sides.

Luogo

La Placita de Florez, a historic farmers market.

El Faro: mostly inhabited by farmers from all over Antioquia and some other parts of the country. Many of them keep working on the field, so the contrast of being through coffee and corn fields while having an incredible view of the city is just the perfect way to understand the contrasts, configuration and reality of the city.

Cerro Pan de azucar: the highest mountain of Medellín.

This was a very interesting and unique tour, definitely a highlight of our trip. We met with Andres’s partner Gabriel, who lives in El Faro and took us around. He was an excellent guide, and of course knew everything about the neighborhood, which is a complex situation for outsiders to fully appreciate. This kind of authentic and educational experience was exactly what we were looking for. It really helped us better understand the city and it’s history. Highly, highly recommend this tour.

I didn’t know what to expect when I booked this tour. I’m glad that I booked it. It was refreshing seeing/experiencing an untold community in Colombia. The view at the top is spectacular. The guide Gabriel lives in the neighborhood and is great.

This was an awesome tour of a comuña that is not often seen. Definitely worth going with Andres and Gabriel as the area is definitely local and they know so much history about the place. The views at the top are incredible! A must go!

I learned a lot on this tour and had a great time connecting with Andrés. I was able to visit a part of the city that I never would have been able to visit on my own.

This tour is a must for anyone wanting an off-the-beaten-path experience in the hills high above the City of Medellin. We toured with Andres' partner, Gabriel, who led us through his own neighborhood of El Faro, where he and another local resident Oscar guided us through the winding streets, steps and paths of the town and shared with us their community's story. We then continued on a beautiful walk/hike up to an incredible viewpoint where we could see the entire City below us. This was an amazing experience that showed us another side of the city that most tourists will sadly miss out on. Don't miss this unique opportunity to see the challenges and the achievements of the people of El Faro. Recommend good walking shoes, water, and sunscreen.

Gabriel is a great guide, very relaxed and he showed us different sides of Medellin. The visit to his part of of tbe city was interesting and confronting and it makes you realize how good and easy we live in the modern world. Oscar, a partner in the tour tells you a lot about the comuna 8 and it’s surrounding nature. Maybe time wise they can make the tour 5 hours instead of 4.
