When you come to Medellin, it is very important to do the graffiti tour, because you get to know how this part of the city (Comuna 13) is trying to come out of the violence through art, music and dance. My friends and I got in contact with the guys from Casa Kolacho (+57 3113473131) and they gave us a tour from the Metro Station (San Javier) to the Graffitis and stairways. The best part about this tour is that you get to know the story of violence of the place by kids that grew up in this place and how they have been part of the transformation, also they take you to a place where you can eat a Crema (a kind of ice cream of Mango) and to a coffee shop that are doing things to help develope the economy of this part of the city. Come to the Graffiti tour and experience the transformation of these place and enjoy the great street art that is there.

We had a guide called Sergio he was one of the friendliest guys ive ever met and seemed to be connected to like almost all the lovely people in medellin. He told us so much about the graffities and the storys behind it. It was fascinating and very exciting. If your in medellin you defnetly have to take a tour to comuna 13 and ask for Sergio!!! Thank you so much i really enjoyed the trip.

I had originally planned to see this area on my own, but ended up booking this tour at the recommendation of a few friends and I am VERY happy that I did. I would have never seen the entire Comuna 13 neighborhood on my own or known the true history of the transformation. I especially liked the relationships that Oscar, our tour-guide, had made with the neighborhood folks. And the artwork, story, and views were truly remarkable. The tour price included all transportation fees and a few local snacks so well worth it! My two suggestions for improvement would be to: (1) make the tour groups smaller as it was hard to hear everything Oscar was saying or invest in a small microphone/speaker if you must have larger groups; and (2) collect the tour fees at the end of the tour on the bus rather than at the metro station in open public.
