Full description
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.

The tour exceeded our expectations. Andres is an experienced guide who is proud of his country and likes to talk about the country, the people, but also the problems. In Comuna 13 he knows a lot of people himself. The zest for life is contagious. Thank you for the wonderful tour, which allowed us to learn a lot of new things.

Wow, wow, wow. This was by far one of the best tours we’ve had in Medellin. John (our tour guide) took the time to explain the reason Comuna 13 holds a place in Colombian history. He was careful to explain the infamy and bad notoriety of this community and coupled that with what the Comuna 13 residents have done to turn things around and make it a “must visit” place. John went out of his way to accommodate every request we had and gave us plenty opportunity to ask questions, shop with the locals and eat some great food. I highly recommend this tour, but more importantly I recommend John

Manny was amazing! He didn’t just show us Comuna 13, he took us all over the city. He was informative and enthusiastic. I was an abnormally rainy day but that didn’t stop us from having a great time! He had umbrellas for us and everything we needed. After taking a ton of amazing photos and exploring we finished with a nice lunch all together at Mondongo’s. You won’t regret booking a tour with him!!!
