Silleteros (flower carriers) are famous over the world and participate in many parades and festivities. One of the world`s most famous parades is the annual Feria De Las Flores in Medellin and hundreds of Silleteros participate. Medellin City Tours® shows you closely how Flower displays are built and constructed in nearby Santa Elena and the finca of Don Aristides is perhaps the most famous in the world. This tour is designed to let you see how these elaborate flower displays are made, provide a brief history and tradition of the Silleteros as well as introduce you to nearby Santa Elena. Bring your sweet tooth. Their pastries and desserts are famous throughout Latin America.

Once our bilingual driver has met you at the hotel or the location you have suggested Medellin City Services® for pick up, tour heads east on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. After a beautiful ride through the country side, tour arrives to a local farm where one of the most representative silleteros of the region will give a personalized visit to his estate. There is free time to enjoy this pleasant location in amidst of orchids, sun flowers and many others. Courtesy beverage is offered before the walk around this magnificent flower crops. Feel free to stop anytime and use bathrooms or purchase extra drinks while you make yourself comfortable and take pictures or ask questions to the guide. There are convenient facilities where to grab snacks at any time so is recommended to bring cash or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit or debit cards.
