One of the best guided tours we’ve been on, Kevin was very knowledgeable and a great story teller. This was my second tour atComuna 13 and it was much more authentic and personal than my first visit. Highly recommend!

Great tour and friendly tour guide! I learned a lot about the history and struggles that the community in Communa 13 had went through to get to where it is now. Kevin was are tour guide who was a local and was super informative about the place. Definitely recommend doing this tour for anyone that wants to learn more about the culture/history of Communa 13.

Kevin gave us the tour and he was great. He gave us a detailed description about the history of Comuna 13 as well as his own personal experience from it. Great description of what life was like during the unsettling history of the area. Beautiful graffiti along the tour way as well as a view of the city. Highly recommend this tour!
