We had SO much fun on this tour with Edwin and Kevin! It felt like hanging out with our friends who we knew forever. Took us to the coolest spots and we really got an authentic experience of Comuna 13. Highly recommend!

My guide Luis was very knowledgeable about the Comuna 13 and all of the symbolism of the murals and street art. Even though he was born and raised in Venezuela, it seemed like Luis knew every single person in the Comuna which was really cool to see. Luis was perfectly happy to speak in both Spanish and English (I asked for a Spanglish tour so I could understand all the explanations but still get the authentic experiences. Likewise, Luis willingly took my picture at any piece of art that I wanted - which was great for me as a solo traveler so I didn’t have to break out the selfie stick. Finally, if you ask really nicely, Luis might take you to hear from Jamerson’s grandmother about what it was like to live in the Comuna 13 during the darker periods of Medellin’s history.
