Dear customers and friends of Colombia Private Tours by willisbestguidemedellin.com

With the confidence that all of you and your families are very well amid the uncertainty of this difficult pandemic, our team wants to greet you by sending a message of hope and optimism to all of you.

As surely many of you will have heard during our tourist experiences, “Medellín is a city with a resilient population, which has been formed and strengthened from adversity.” Those who have known and been part of the history of our tourism entrepreneurship company also know that challenges and adversity have been the basis of the growth achieved. May this be the moment to make the world a better place to live together, trying to make of ourselves better after we overcome this unfortunate, but at the same time enriching, world experience.

We also know and appreciate the love and trust that you have placed in us. Your messages of support and solidarity have come strongly to further encourage us to move forward. That is why now, in the face of this situation that is hitting our labor sector hard, we are here to tell you with great faith and enthusiasm, that from the past we retain the experience to continue improving. From the present, we assume with humility and strength the challenges that we have. And in the face of the future that confronts us all without exception, we project ourselves with the clear teaching to the entire world that the only thing we have is the now. So now we cannot stop dreaming, fighting and persevering. Giving up is not an option, on the contrary, we accept and understand the current global situation as an opportunity for renewal and rearrangement of the order of things to reinvent ourselves in new social and market scenarios in which we want to have all your valuable support and at the same time confirm that we are here and will be to continue with all our efforts and love for what we do. Actually, during this time we are working on some ideas that help us, and you as well, to go through the quarantine by taking advantage of the free time and turning it into something productive. Soon we will let you all know about it.

We say goodbye with a see you soon and a phrase to keep in mind now and always…

What some customers say about our services

Willi zeigte uns an einem Tag auf sehr persönliche Art die Sonnen- und die Schattenseiten Medellins. Zudem hörten wir viel über die Geschichte der Stadt. Höhepunkte waren die Plaza Botero, die fantastischen Murales, der Besuch eines lokalen Marktes und die Fahrt mit Tram und Gondelbahn (Cable)zu den Armenvierteln. Willi nennt sich “the Best Guide in Medellin”. Das weiss er auch und vermutlich ist er es auch. Wenn Sie persönliche Wünsche während der Führung haben, müssen Sie dies sehr deutlich sagen.

This tour was the best tour of Colombia we have EVER been on! We went to many places that he recommended such as a secluded restaurant which was so good because we love going to places that aren’t well known! We also went El Penol which was so much fun because of the views. We visited many places in Medellin such as the city where we all got to ride the metro cable which was full of amazing views; while on the cable car William gave us a very detailed history on the cities we were passing over. It was clear he knew what he was doing on this tour, there was never a point where we were lost or confused about anything. My family and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a private all inclusive tour.

Estuvimos del 1 al 4 de setiembre del 2016, en Medellín ,y fuimos atendidos por el señor Willian, el cual consideramos un verdadero Paisa, ya que el orgullo y satisfacción que siente de ser colombiano , motiva a cualquier persona , conocimos bastante de la geografía e historia de Medellín, gracias la amabilidad y gentiliza del señor Willian, y como decimos nosotros es un PAISA enamorado de su ciudad ,gracias señor Willian usted es de las personas que hacen ver un Colombia bonito, servicial, siga adelante saludos familia Meza.

As an american expat with limited spanish language skills I have often found it difficult to negotiate my way around Medellin. To this end William Zuluaga has been of great assistance to me. We met by chance as he drove me to the golf course in El Rodeo. I was very impressed with his profesional manner and his easy understanding of english. These are two traits not readily found in Medellin. Through the course of time I have come to rely on him and his extensive contacts in all walks of Medellin life. He was instrumental in helping me obtain a visa, connecting me to competent legal services, translating documents, and offering suggestions on safe accomodations in which to live. We have gone on excursions out of the city and I have the utmost confidence in his integrity. Through the course of time we have actually become good friends and I have met his lovely wife and two beautiful daughters. William is intent on promoting all things good about Medellin and he is an excellent ambassador for the city. If you only have a short time to stay in Medellin I highly recommend his services to enhance your enjoyment of the city. If you are staying long term you will find him a good friend and resource.

I am happy to recommend William’s Tourist Service and support . While my husband received medical treatment in Meddillin, William’s guidance, practical assistance and friendship, made this difficult time as pleasant as possible. Our many day trips helped us relax and learn a great deal about the country and the Pais culture. judyhoc@gmail.com
