Only a few years ago, the Comuna 13 neighborhood was the most dangerous community in the city of Medellin but today it's the most colorful and vibrant communities in the city. After the government and private sector invested in social and youth programs the local residents and artists reclaimed the neighborhoods and contributed to the miraculous transformation which we see today, the streets filled with incredible street art, music, street performers, vendors selling tasty local snacks A great opportunity to explore the lively streets in Comuna 13 while meeting local residents and artists, a unique cultural and memorable experience.

İ recommend this tour. İ was lucky that just 2 others joined the tour so we had enough time to enjoy it. The guide called Walter was also great... cable car experience was just great with the view. Same for the top of comuna 13. The grafitti art and the dancing & rapping artist was also great! Had a lot of fun...

Walter was knowledgeable, easy going, down to earth, and fun to walk around with. Learned a lot about the culture, history, and everything in between.

The guide did not show up in the meeting point in the morning without any confirmation. It's very sad they ruin people's plans like this. Gladly I was able to find another company that keeps up to their schedules and was much more professional. DON'T BOOK THIS

Fantastic tour and tour guide. I am generally quiet and when I showed up and found out I was the only person on the tour that day I was dreading an entire day of struggling through Spanish/English and forced conversation. Walter and the Comuna 13 was anything but. We spent 3.5 hours exploring and walking and talking and sharing a genuinely fantastic time. From help with transportation to questions about life in Medellin to personal knowledge about the artwork and community, the entire time flew by and was by far the best thing I did in Medellin. If you have the chance to book this, do it.
