Did the tour with Gio and absolutely loved it! We got to see the rock and a boat trip around Guatape and Gio was so informative and friendly. I'd highly recommend this tour for anyone that is interested in seeing Guatape while in Medellin.

Ricardo and Aeroturex had come highly recommended to my friend and I traveling to Medellin as a safe and efficient way for us to get around the city in addition to offering us a private tour guide to see some of the city's amazing sights. Our experience in Medellin would have been a miss if not for having had Ricardo to show us around, explain the city's amazing culture and history and overall, to take a general interest in the quality of our trip. He provided us with excellent recommendations on where to spend our evenings and I truly feel like we left that beautiful city by gaining a friend in Ricardo. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

This is a great tour if you want to visit Comuna 13 and the Metrocable. Our guide José Camillo was very nice and patient and explained everything very calmly and well. He tried to make sure alle the different needs of the group are being met.

Took both the Guatape and Communa 13 tours with Aeroturex. Transportation on both was on time and comfortable. Jio, our guide for both tours was very friendly, informative and kind.

The Guatape tour was a full day with quite a drive out and back but the boat ride and the Rock of Penol are great but really need good weather to be enjoyed (which we had).

The town of Guatape is also fun but we recommend trying a different restaurant than the tour recommended for lunch. Great food at better prices and with more personality is only a couple blocks away.

The Communa 13 tour was fun, and inclides a cable car ride over the Communas and a walk around Communa 13 which has incredible graffiti art. They also take you to Pablo Escobar's tomb, his house (apartment building) and the place where he died. Interesting if you're into his personal history but it did seem to take time away from the city component of the tour. I did wish we had spent more time walking around Communa 13 itself.

They sell this tour as a trip in the transformation of Medellin. They clearly stated that the tour is focussed on la Comuna 13 and the street art , in reality you spend 3 hours in traffic listening about Pablo Escobar and they even take you to the cemetery to visit his grave.
It was embarassing. There was a funeral and they brought a bunch of gringos to visit the grave of a criminal.
Incredible that Medellin tour operators still glorify this criminal. In our group we were 20 and only 2 people wanted to go to the cemetery but the will of the majority was ignored.

Only positive thing the kindness and availability of our 2 clever guides Jio and Thomas (grazie).

To the boss of the Aeroturex team that was hiding in the bus I can only hope he understands this feedback and stop bringing tourists to visit Escobar' s grave.

Colombian should not glorify this sad page of their history.
