Great tour for those who wants to get a better feel of the city and walk around Communa 13 with the local guide who knows it all! Our guide was Hector, we got lucky we had him, he knew everyone in Communa 13 and we felt very connected. He also drove us around the city, took up the cable car and down town. It was a great tour, two thumbs up!

Excellent tour with Hector. He was very patient and made us feel safe. He knows a lot of people in the areas he takes you so you almost feel like a local. Would recommend it to anyone
