About
It is a guided tour of places where we will talk in detail about the history of the inhabitants of commune 13 and how art, graffiti and culture completely changed the territory from being known as one of the most violent places in Medellín to be one of the most important tourist points. The tour includes bus transport and three snacks that will be given along the route, these are a pie, the drink known as guarapo and mango ice cream. Another of the most special aspects of the tour is that you enter the house of an inhabitant of commune 13, Rosalba one of the first people to reach commune 13, a person full of history and experiences with violence, Culture and change.

A wonderful engaging tour! Our tour guide Esteban was helpful and accommodating. He started our tour at an earlier, more convenient time. He was informative about the history of all the graffiti work (and patient with all my shopping stops and photos). He was fluent in English and patient with all our follow up questions.

We had the best experience with Esteban. The tour had the perfect blend of rich historical insights and Esteban’s own first hand personal experiences. He was incredibly open, taking us to his grandmothers house for a lemonade where he shared his family’s story. Would 100% recommend!

Esteban was a wonderful tour guide and gave us a great historical tour of Communa 13 (beyond just the graffiti, although we saw quite a bit of that as well). He grew up in Communa 13 so was able to talk about his personal experience. We got snacks along the tour and got to hear a lot about Esteban's personal family story (including meeting his grandmother). Overall, it was an amazing tour and I would highly recommend it!

Great vacation to Colombia going to Bogata, Madelin and Cartagena.

This trip was awesome, but Madelin was exceptional. I had a trip going the Comona 13 was incredible with my tour guy Esteban. This guy is amazing he knows about the history, show you around and take to every historical point. It was great to meet his grandma who she was the first 20 person who moved to the Comona 13 back the 80’s.
This is a must to see with Esteban.

Esteban is the person you want to guide you trough the Comuna 13. He is a local of the neighborhood with a deep understanding of the history of Colombia and rich history in Medellin. We even got a chance to visit his grandmother's home where she provided refreshments to the group. The views of the city is amazing. Everything I was looking for plus more.

This tour was everything I expected. Esteban was an amazing guide - he was extremely knowledgeable and well-informed about the comuna’s history, and happily answered our questions. His intimate experience with the neighborhood lent the tour more weight than usual, and it was great to have his commentary and guidance throughout the few hours we spent on the tour. Highly recommend both the tour and Esteban as a guide! Easily one of the most unique experiences in Medellin

This tour is an excellent tour, not to mention the tour guide Mr. Esteban. He is an excellent guide with a passion about the history of the community. His English is superb and his first hand experience makes it feels as if you were present during the time of the rebels. A very touching part of the tour is when he takes you to his grand mothers house who is still alive. They provide you with a nice refreshment and tell you more stories of the rebels and the unfortunate demise of his uncles by the rebels. This tour is a must and I recommend you ask for Esteban. He is very kind, patient and humorous at times.
