Full description
Meet your guide in the metro station to begin the tour and experience Medellín like a local. Learn all about the stations and key points in the city as well as how the metro system helped shape the new Medellin. When arriving at the connecting station, hop on a cable car up the hill. As you go, admire the panoramic views of the city and find out about its evolving history and troubled past. At the top, stop to sample local snacks and take a short ride on the bus toward the Comuna 13 district. At the Comuna 13, the real fun begins. An enthusiastic guide will explain all the positive changes made to transform what was once one of the most dangerous communities in South America into a symbol of the new Medellín. You will have time to take in all the amazing street art and ride the electric outdoor escalators to the top observation deck, which offers incredible views.

    Walter did an amazing job in sharing a brief history of comuna 13. He is very energetic and informative; he made the tour absolutely worth it! Experiencing a little bit of the neighborhood showed us a different perspective of Medellin. Highly recommend this tour as it comes with snacks and transportation!

    Arturo did more than what we expected. We had a great time, enjoyed the tour and had plenty of time to get some great shots of the city. I definitely recommend this tour. We went for the 3:00pm tour and I’m glad we did, we got the best of both worlds as it got dark by 7pm and the city looked absolutely beautiful at night. Cable cars and murals were my favorite part of the tour.
