Willi’s Best Guide Medellin – Medellin Travel Guide

I found Willi’s Best Guide Medellin on a sex forum called International Sex Guide.  Many of his past travel clients posted comments about Willi’s excellent sex tourism services in Medellin. He lived in the U.S. and he speaks very good English. Willi’s real name is William Zuluaga Echeverria. He conducts his business from his taxi and cell phone. He has no office or official business license to conduct tourism services in the City of Medellin.

After speaking to him before my arrival, he assured my safety and introductions to many beautiful women in Medellin. I told him that I was interested in meeting women for marriage. Willi said that is was no problem and that he knew many women that wanted to meet foreigners and marry them.

I decided to give it a shot and bought my airline tickets and made hotel reservations.. [continued below]....


Overall, Medellin is a very nice city that is rich in culture. But keep in mind it all depends on who you meet and the type of people you surround yourself with.

My experience with Willi was horrible. From the moment I met him, his constant sales pitch is his sex tourism services in Medellin. He knows every brothel, whorehouse and strip club in Medellin. Keep in mind, that he tells me the legal age to have sex with a women in Colombia is 14. That is the main reason why he has so many clients come for the United States and use his guide services. He boasts knowing high profile attorneys, doctors and successful business men that fly in to Medellin using him as a sex tourism guide, as well as, introducing beautiful women who will spend they day, weekend and week with foreigners for a fee.

I decided against using Willi for his sex tourism services and decided that I wanted to meet someone who was interested in marriage. His sales pitch to me was $500 dollars for the introduction which was for a 2 hour date which was chaperoned by Willi personally. He showed me a few pictures of the women he had on his ipad and I declined again to use his marriage services because I thought $500 dollars was to much to pay for a 2 hour date. Again, Willi states that he has many clients that fly in from all over the world to participate in his marriage introductions. Well, that is great and I decided not to be one of the them without any referrals which he was unable to provide me.

At the end, I did purchase his wing man service which included transportation, translation and guide services. It runs about $12 an hour. But again, you pay for what you get.

Willi introduced me to two beautiful women at a upscale cocktail bar at Parque Lleras. After a few hours of drinking and chatting, we all decided to go to my hotel room. Once I walked in to my hotel room, my memory is blank. I woke up 24 hours later and Willi and the 2 women were gone. My ipad, iphone and $3,000 dollars in cash were gone as well. I called hotel security and was later taken to a hospital clinic. The doctor told me after some blood tests that I was given some type of drug to knock me out.

I desperately tried to call Willi and he never answered his cell phone. He too disappeared probably with my cash, iphone and ipad.

Medellin is full of very good and shady tourism guides. Be very aware if you use Willi’s Best Guide Medellin because at the end of the day it may cost you everything you have. Willis website slogan is “ Your One Stop Solution For Anything You Are Looking For”. Everyone who calls him is looking for a sex tourism guide. His website should be called “Willis Best Sex Guide Medellin”

I contacted some ex-pats that live in Colombia to shared my experience. Overall, my negative concensus is accurate.

Here are some of the scams William Zuluaga Echevarri has pulled off in the past.

1. International organ transplant travel agency

2. SEO & Reputation Management

3. International Marriage Agency

4. Telecommunications Agency

5. Internet Dating Website

6. Real Estate Office & Property Management

7. Medical Tourism

8. Website Design

9. Hotel Developer

At the end of the day, this guy is an expert sex tourism taxi driver that runs multiple scams on a daily basis. He even goes around town showing off a picture of himself with high ranking government officials. He definitely knows how to use photoshop.

If you are looking to get scammed in a third world county and throw away your hard earned money, contact him!!!!

Buyer Be Aware.

Willi is the best and most honest guide in Medellin


It seems unlikely, but if you are at all inclined to believe the malicious review about Willi's guide service, I encourage you to read the many rebuttals to that comment, as well as the numerous other reviews available online.  I have now been to Medellin three times. Due to a stellar recommendation from an expat friend of mine, I took a tour with really on my first trip. It was immediately obvious that Willi is in love with his country and the city of Medellin. After one tour, so was I. I have no visited twice more, touring with WillI each time. 

On our tours, We saw many national landmarks, authentic restaurants, quaint villages, and the like. Not once did Willi offer nor suggest any illicit activity. To the contrary, when I changed money at a questionable looking establishment,  Willi  made it abundantly clear that he abhors places that operate outside of the law, and he recommended that we change our money in banks or other established locations to avoid the possibility of money getting into the wrong hands.

When you take a tour outside of the city, you are placing a lot of trust in your guide. I would trust Willi with my closest loved ones. My name is Stephen Lezcano. You are welcome to find me online and ask me any question you'd like about Willi and his tours.

Sounds like a smear campaign

AUTHOR: Joe - ()

To begin with I find the credibility of this rip-off report very questionable.   The author starts off by mentioning that he found Willi by perusing through an International Sex Guide forum yet when he hired Willi he claims to only be interested in real marriage and not any sort of sex tourism .......hmmm.

I understand everyone has their own experiences but after reading this report in particular it sounds like it's just a smear campaign against Willi.  Perhaps the author's love interest did not pan out and now he needed someone to blame for his pain.

My buddy and I had the pleasure of hiring Willi for our first trip to Colombia last month and my experience with Willi was totally opposite of what is claimed in this rip-off report.  We are a couple of young to middle aged guys and would be perfect candidates for Willi to push any kind of sex tourism service on.  Will never once mentioned any kind of sex tourism to us nor did he try sell or push any of the other listed services from the Author.  Willi was a real standup guy and in fact actually warned us and gave us pointers in what to avoid about women there that might try to scam us.  

Willi is an honest, hardworking, trustful guide that takes pride in his work and enjoys having satisfied customers.  We hired Willi for an entire week and never once did we hear about or have any questionable behavior from Willi.  In fact, there was one day we were on the road going out to Guatape with Willi and one of his former customers called him needing urgent assistance.  The guy rented an apartment through another site and got scammed and was stuck at the airport with nowhere to go.  Willi assured him he would help in any way he could and quickly went through several contacts until he found a place for this guy and then followed up to make sure the guy got there ok too.

I could go on and on about how untrue I think this report is about Willi.  I think for everyone reading this all you need to do is check out Willi's reviews on Trip Advisor and come to your own conclusion.  The reviews should speak for itself.    Here is the link  http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g297478-d6513892-Reviews-Willi_s_Best_Guide_Medellin_Private_Day_Tours-Medellin_Antioquia_Department.html

How Many Willi's can there Be

AUTHOR: Kerry - ()


I recently travelled to Medillin on vacation.  it's been my first international vacation in a long time.  I'm former USNavy, so I am use to being in other countries.

I was in Medillin the week of Oct 6th and it was a bit rainy to say the least.

Without Willie to take us through the city and narrate on so many topics of the past present and future of Medillin i would say our trip would have been unfulfilled. 

I've gained a boatload of knowledge and history and met so many great and down to earth people throughout the city and surronding places because of Willie and his willingness to insure we had the best time possible in the limited amount of time we were there.

My time and money are trully valuable to me and Both were well spent with Willie.  I have no idea why a person would type such a negative article.  Whereas my experience with Willie is drastically different than the guy who came looking for a wife i have to say his story sounds believable, but just not with Willie.  I have no doubt that you can be hustled in Medillin if you so choose that path.

My thing is, this is the type of behavior that Willie warned us about.  Women are all over the place and just like in any city, if you make a poor decision it can come back to bite you.  I wish the best for the Marriage guy, but i can not let him drag Willie through the mud.  I think he may have gotten into some trouble, but i believe the true blame lies elsewhere.

My advice is to take Willie up on his 10% Discount offer and find out for yourself!  There are many people back here in Houston Tx that have enjoyed my photos and stories of the time i had in Medillin Columbia.  Willie is now a household name amongst family and friends and any of them who wish to travel, will be calling him.

To tell you the truth I actually miss Willie....that's how much i enjoyed the places, food, the atmosphere and professionalism of the journey he took us on....Kudos Willie!!

Answer to the report posted on 06/04/2013

AUTHOR: Willi -Medellin - ()

My full name is William ZULUAGA ECHEVERI. Not Echeverría. As has been mentioned by the anonymous, aka New York. All my clients, in its vast majority foreigners, they call me Willi.

From there was born the name of my web page. That website is direct representative of my rates, portfolio of services and is my letter of introduction.

Not only my clients, but also my family and friends know very well the nature of my services as a guide. They also know that due to the characteristics of my trade, in some occasions I must attend clubs for adults, widely recognized in the city.

I am not a pimp, or get involved in things that are illegal or against my principles. It is obvious to me that the anonymous in this report only seeks to damage the good image of this successful company of just one employee, "me”, with all kinds of lies and manipulating the information that I provide on the website.

Today I can proudly say that by the good performance of my job I have been mentioned in TV programs, both national (see in the video gallery of my page "I'm from Medellin City" ), and foreigners. I participated in a radio program for a German station. I've been in articles in the press (see photos), etc., and there are countless people who can attest of my behavior of the social work that I have with my job.

I can easily disprove or clarify each of the accusations that on this subject makes about me, in this internet blog that is open to anyone and in any way to say freely what he/she likes. But as a serious, honest and mature man, I’m not playing the games that any malicious Sam ... , or whatever his real name is intending to do.

For this reason, if you have read these reports and is considering the services of someone like me, I invite you to use my services and draw your own conclusions about the defamation that a coward anonymous has made to me. At the same time, enjoy an unforgettable experience in the city of eternal spring. And in addition, if you present to me a printed copy of this report I will be very happy to award you with a discount of 10% in each of the services that I provide.

Thank you for trusting me and giving me the opportunity to take care of you. Be ensured that you’re not going to be disappointed. PD:  thanks Lord  because I love, dream and live, while there are others who hate and wallow in their nightmares ... Thank you,

 William Zuluaga Echeverri. Www.willisbestguidemedellin.com

Willi's Guide

AUTHOR: DB Cooper - ()

I have to admit, I have been coming to Medellin for a while now for business. I have used Willi as a guide all but once. 

Whoever wrote this report either doesn't use the guy that is in the picture, or has a vendetta, or did not remotely experience the person that I did in this report. I have even met the man's family. 

What is odd about this report is the fact that you start out by saying that you read about him in an online sex guide, then say you were looking for marriage. I think there are many different ways to arrive at what you are trying to get at without going to an "international sex guide". 

My experience was that Willi is bilingual from having lived in the United States. I told him I would like to see Medellin (and I have), stay out of trouble (which I did), and avoid getting ripped off (which I also did). 

He NEVER made mention of a brothel or whorehouse. He mentioned a strip joint when I was sitting with a fellow gringo at a bar in parque lleras. And that is because the gringo directly asked about the name of one. 

He never boasted of having high profile attorneys, etc. as clients. In fact he asked me if I could give him advice on how certain things on web sites go over in North America (I am a Canadian but live in the States). 

I personally do not believe for a second the story of him going to a hotel room and then everything was missing. I met girls in Medellin. He did nothing but caution me on the possibilities of getting ripped off in the city and how careful I need to be. 

International Organ Transplant Agency? I am shocked that the ripoff report even now allows this after this ridiculous assertion. 

If you only had one interaction with Willi, then how do you list all these other things? 

I found him to be honest, hard working, and above all reliable. 

I don't believe this ripoff report for a second, and I have been a customer multiple times.
