Jamer definitely puts a lot of effort into giving you a great experience while teaching you about the history and culture of Comuna 13, past and present. He is definitely dedicated to teaching you about the area and not just showing you pretty pictures. Glad we were able to take his tour before he becomes too rich and famous!

Very interesting tour with a lot of history. Our guide, Janeath, was very informative and a local of the Comuna. She explained much of the history of the comuna; it’s origins, it’s growth, it’s people, the issues, and the graffiti and hip hop renaissance that makes this such a colorful place.
