Medellín: Private Comuna 13 Street Art Tour

1. Medellín: Private Comuna 13 Street Art Tour

Start your day with convenient hotel pickup. Meet your guide and begin your tour to experience Medellín like a local. First, you'll be introduced to the graffiti and their meanings on the Poblado neighborhood's walls, which you might have walked by and never noticed. From there, you'll be driven to the downtown area of the city to experience a vibrant part of town. There, see the street art that transforms the gray walls into colorful spaces with stories, and start to learn about some of Medellín's evolving history and troubled past. After downtown, head toward a parking lot close to the Comuna 13 district to park the car before your private group takes the famous cable car up the hills. Make sure to take in the fabulous panoramic views of the city on the way up as your guide tells you more about the surrounding area and its history. At Comuna 13, the real fun begins. Your 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. Enjoy time to take in all the amazing street graffiti and ride the electric outdoor escalators to the top observation deck, which offers incredible views. Listen to insights about Medellín, interesting stories from the guides, meet the locals, and try a famous local popsicle before returning to your hotel.

We had a really great time on this tour! We learned so much and enjoyed a breathtaking VIEW of Comuna 13 and other parts of the city! Not only did Manuel show us around, he also told us about the history of Comuna 13 and his own experiences living there. What we liked most is that he was friendly, open and willing to share his personal experiences with us. It didn’t feel like a tour guide was showing us around but a friend. We would definitely recommend! 10/10. Thank you, Manuel. — Denshir y Joy

Manuel aka Manny was great! He is the manager of Epic Tours Medellin and is so knowledgeable of everything Medellin/Comuna 13. He loves his city and will go out of his way to teach you the history behind the murals, introduce you to the locals that still live there and bring you to the best photo spots. We can't thank him enough for the attention he gave us. It was a true EPIC local experience.

I really enjoyed the personalized tour conducted by Manuel. He explained everything thoroughly and was very knowledgeable about the history and current events and development of the area. The pride he has in his city is infectious; it would be difficult not to love Medellin after spending the afternoon with him.

One of the best tours I’ve taken. Manuel was a wealth of information and took me to all the best locations. He shared incredible stories and even was nice enough to drop me in a different area of town when the tour was over so that I could continue exploring. Would highly recommend

Manuel was exceptional and gave us an amazing tour of Comuna 13
