Great experience. I couldn’t leave Medellin without experiencing a tour of Comuna 13. The story telling was great from the raw pictures to all the art murals. I felt safe and satisfied. I’ll remember the experience forever!

Must do if you are in Medellin. We had a wonderful time with Kevin. Went off the beaten path a bit and got to see a different side of Comuna 13. It was nice to see everyday life in Comuna 13 away from the the main attractions.

This tour is literally a must do!! We had Christian as the tour guide. He was beyond excellent. He showed us areas most tours didn’t go to. I would even do this tour again.
