This was one of the best experiences my partner and I had in Medellin. It was amazing to learn about this neighborhood, the history and transformation. There was music dancing art and amazing photos. 10/10 would recommend anyone who visits to do this. Our guide was great and it felt like a very unique experience.

We had a tour with Esteban and it was a fantastic experience. His knowledge of the area was fantastic having grown up there. It was personal too to learn of his grandmothers connection to the neighborhood and the graffiti recently placed in her absence. We enjoyed the mango ice stop and the great story telling throughout. Highly recommend.

It was important to me to go on this tour with a guide from the community and that’s exactly what we got. Jamerson was personable and knew so much history. He shared personal stories and answered all the questions we had. He also recommended this amazing Afro-Colombian food spot after and it was my favorite meal of my whole trip. Highly recommend!

Gran experiencia que con la historia y los lugares a los que janneth nos hizo pasar, ayuda a entender mucho más como la comuna 13 ha logrado salir de ese pasado oscuro y ver cómo con el arte y la cultura han salido adelante, sin duda alguna recomendado.
