About the tour

Medellín, also known as the City of Eternal Spring, hosts an impressive Flower Fair every year on August. It is a whole week full of art, music, nature and of color and is a UNESCO cultural heritage festival. Come with me to visit the essence of the flower festival ¡the Silleteros! We won't be able to see the full parade until August but for now let's go inside a traditional family's home from Santa Elena who will show us live the assembly of the huge flower bouquet they carry on their backs during the parade. This is perfect for flower lovers, culture addicts, Colombia enthusiasts.

The Flower Parade Silleteros tour was such a fun tour! I'd never heard of this tradition and the discussion and demonstration was fascinating. And the flowers and scenery were beautiful. I highly recommend it and hope it gets repeated for others to enjoy.
