Not Just a Tour - an "Experience"
This was my 5th visit to Medellín and for each trip I try to find something unique to do that I haven't experienced yet. I came across the graffiti tour of comuna 13 and I think this is one of my favorite tours I have done. Enjoyed trying local foods of the area and the "cremas" were my favorite! This tour is a must if you want an authentic local experience in Medellin!
“Anyone who vistis Medellin should go on the Comuna 13 Tour” Its an important story that everyone who comes to the city should learn about. Ciro and Ana were our tour guides and did an awesome job. They knew everyone we ran into which made all of us feel welcome and part of the community.
“The graffiti tour is brilliant” Absolutely worth the money. Yes, you could go to communa 13 on your own, but you won't understand the background and meanings of the graffiti. We had an english speaking guide and a local colombian guide from communa 13 who grew up during the guerilla time. Breathtaking graffitis and great tour.
"AMAZING" The graffiti tour was absolutely amazing. I absolutely loved every second of it. Comuna 13 is beautiful and I highly recommend going there with these guys cause the stories and the history of the neighborhood is something you definitely need to listen from people who lived there. It was beautiful and very moving.
I would like everyone to come to this tour. First of all it's a really beautiful place with a lot to see, but second - your visit helps to make the change in those neighborhoods.
We could not stop talking about the graffiti tour and I think it was the best thing we did in Medellin. The art and history behind comuna 13 will give you a different aspect to Medellin that you would never get if you just stay around all the touristy destinations/tours. Definitely worth it!!!!
“Awesome Graffiti Tour!” it's so much more than about the art, we learned so much about the history and people of the community, from our local guide, Jeihhco. It was really an eye opening experience.
