We had gone to the botanical garden and the Pueblito Viejo had access issues so Mauricio took us first to Parque Arvi by cable car. The view of Medellin was phenomenal! The park is gorgeous and there was an awesome market for breakfast and arts & crafts. On the way back we took the Metro to Plaza Botero - the Botero sculptures juxtaposed with the checkered building are cool, though it’s not the nicest area of Medellin. Finally we drove to the Comuna 13. Mauricio told us about the history of the place and the stories behind most graffiti. Comuna 13 was the highlight of the tour and well worth it with an awesome guide. We had late lunch at the top of the Comuna in a neat house. We took the best pictures around Comuna 13 - so colorful!
Arturo did more than what we expected. We had a great time, enjoyed the tour and had plenty of time to get some great shots of the city. I definitely recommend this tour. We went for the 3:00pm tour and I’m glad we did, we got the best of both worlds as it got dark by 7pm and the city looked absolutely beautiful at night. Cable cars and murals were my favorite part of the tour.
Walter did an amazing job in sharing a brief history of comuna 13. He is very energetic and informative; he made the tour absolutely worth it! Experiencing a little bit of the neighborhood showed us a different perspective of Medellin. Highly recommend this tour as it comes with snacks and transportation!
Walter is an excellent guide, he told us many interesting things about Medellin and Comuna 13. Everybody knows him! We felt very safe and it was really a great tour!
Tour was really great and interesting. Our guide Arturo was perfect! I would recommend this to anyone.
