    1. Medellín: Private Comuna 13 Street Art Tour

    Start your day with convenient hotel pickup. Meet your guide and begin your tour to experience Medellín like a local. First, you'll be introduced to the graffiti and their meanings on the Poblado neighborhood's walls, which you might have walked by and never noticed. From there, you'll be driven to the downtown area of the city to experience a vibrant part of town. There, see the street art that transforms the gray walls into colorful spaces with stories, and start to learn about some of Medellín's evolving history and troubled past. After downtown, head toward a parking lot close to the Comuna 13 district to park the car before your private group takes the famous cable car up the hills. Make sure to take in the fabulous panoramic views of the city on the way up as your guide tells you more about the surrounding area and its history. At Comuna 13, the real fun begins.

    What an utterly amazing tour! The private tour with Epic Tours Medellín is the way to go! Today’s tour was of Comuna 13. Manny was my guide and took me through the city of Medellín explained the history of the city, their on going social programs, and with the bonus of sampling local cuisine along the way. Next up a ride on the metro cable which was thrilling and then on to Comuna 13. It was like exploring with an old friend. Comuna 13 was the crown jewel of this experience. Finding out about the violent past and the significance behind the artwork in the murals and listening to the explanation. How the people of the community embraced change and created a “new Medellín”! It is something I will always treasure. Also, being able to interact with the residents was a fabulous treat. This is a tour you must undertake if you come to Medellín. When I come back I will certainly do this tour again.

We had a really great time on this tour! We learned so much and enjoyed a breathtaking VIEW of Comuna 13 and other parts of the city! Not only did Manuel show us around, he also told us about the history of Comuna 13 and his own experiences living there. What we liked most is that he was friendly, open and willing to share his personal experiences with us. It didn’t feel like a tour guide was showing us around but a friend. We would definitely recommend! 10/10. Thank you, Manuel. — Denshir y Joy
