What you'll do

You're going to be introduce to the unknown and fascinating history of Colombia, a country where reality exceeds fiction, full of color, passion and life. That's the real Colombia, considered one of the happiest countries in the world!

But we cant' deny that our history has been written with red, like it's said: "God made our land so beautiful, it was unfair to the rest of the world, so to even the score, God populated our land with a race of evil men"

Corporate teams, friends, families, date nights, individuals and birthday reunions are great for this experience and anybody that likes to learn and discover new things!

Forget about boring history classes, lets make this interactive and competitive!

Winner takes a prize!

I'll share Colombia's amazing geography, multi-cultures, history, diversity, landscapes, some crazy facts, bizarre stories, personal experiences, we'll discuss a few things, pop some quizzes and make a it challenge!

- Why Colombia? Megadiverse country?
- Is it cultural and historical?
- What's the difference between guerrillas and paramilitaries? Is drugs the problem?
- Pablo Escobar?
- The most happiest country?
- And any question you have, I'd be happy to answer.

This event could be helpful when planning your future trip to Colombia and Medellín.

Don't hesitate to contact me regarding new dates and times, I'd be happy to accommodate you

I love what I do! I love Colombia as a whole, the diversity in every aspect, the different climates, landscapes, geography, cultures, ethnicities and the amazing and crazy history that "blows" everybody's mind.

I am professional guide with over 10 years of experience in the city of Medellín and the Department of Antioquia, the region I live, the city I love and the culture I feel absolute passion for. I was doing tours every day before this crazy pandemic, but now technology has showed us the way. Fluent in english since I live a big part of my childhood in United States and built a unique point of view being grown with both cultures.

This was amazing! My boyfriend and I did this for our anniversary since we couldn’t get out and about due to Covid. Exceeded our expectations and was personalized to our interests. Very engaging storytelling!

Did the experience with 6 other colleagues - it was a great learning opportunity! Fernando was an engaging storyteller and kept things super interesting by weaving in his own personal experiences. I know a lot more about Columbia and Pablo Escobar now :)

Fernando was a great virtual tour guide. He gave a first hand perspective on Columbia, the history and culture. He tied it in well with how Pablo Escobar impacted the country and how it has changed since then. His presentation was well organized and it was fun to see pictures, videos and hear music. He definitely made us want to visit and hopefully one day get to go on his tour. I would recommend others to learn about Columbia through Fernando!

You are going to love this experience! Fernando brings Columbia to life over zoom! How does he do it? He's an amazing storyteller and has such great images and things that bring it all to life. It's way better than even a great documentary and it's amazing to be able to ask an expert about the history. I love it!!!
