Itinerary:

Once our bilingual driver has met you at the hotel or the location you have suggested Medellin City Services® for pick up, tour heads north on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. First stop takes place at Minorista market place, an exciting market with plenty of vendors and even a Flea market where average Colombians purchase monthly groceries. Customer can use bathrooms and/or purchase extra drinks at his own expense before the guided visit around the market place starts. You can make stops along the way to take pictures, sample fruits and/or ask questions to the guide. There are convenient facilities where to use bathrooms or grab snacks at any time and is recommended to bring cash and/or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards. After a guided visit, our Medellin City Services® guide will show you fruits you have never imagined, besides vegetables and other ingredients that are main part of the local diet.

Journey continues to Flower market sitting in downtown, where an impressive selection of florists and farmers display their best plants amidst celestial fragrances and essences. Finally, tour heads to Antioquia’s central market place, Mayorista, for a closer approach to the most exotic fruits and their natural properties at Colombia´s second largest market. All samples are provided by Medellin City Services® so that you can fully experience all the new fruits and/or vegetables unknown. At the end of the tour, you can choose to be dropped at your hotel or another location you feel like.
