Tour and Travel Guide
Born and raised in the Colombian city of Medellin, Wilson is a man of colorful character with a story that is heartfelt and true. Growing up during turbulent times in what what once considered one of the world’s most dangerous cities, within a culture of cartels defined by dreams of earning respect, money, and power, Wilson was a product of his youth and of his time, and lives with an authenticity that is palpable. As a sibling among seven and part of a family on a constant search for better opportunities and new beginnings, he experienced a reality that was common to many; a boy while with ambition and dreams, was as his mother would say, naughty and in love. After marrying and becoming a father, Wilson emigrated to the United States, working his way up from dishwasher to chef at a restaurant in the city of Boston, a ten year journey joined by much effort and sacrifice. While returning to Medellin in 2013 with the hope of launching his own restaurant, his life took an unexpected turn with the opportunity of working in the transportation and tourism industry, where he has been providing guided tours and transport within the city of his youth. Having been featured by television personality Andrew Zimmern, Wilson’s depth of knowledge of the ins and outs of Colombia coupled with his vibrant personality and bilingual skills makes any experience led by him to be one that is memorable and worthwhile.
