Not Just a Tour - an "Experience"

“Anyone who vistis Medellin should go on the Comuna 13 Tour”

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!

"AMAZING" The stories and the history of the neighborhood is something you definitely need to listen from people who lived there. Very moving.
“Awesome Graffiti Tour!” it's so much more than about the art, we learned so much about the history and people of the community. It was really an eye opening experience.
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. Definitely worth it!!!!
“The graffiti tour is brilliant” Yes, you could go to communa 13 on your own, but you won't understand the background and meanings of the graffiti.
