Full description

Get an insight into Colombia's troubled past on a private guided tour of the formerly dangerous district of Comuna 13 in Medellín.   Discover a replica of an old village at Pueblito Paisa on Nutibara Hill, and get stunning views over the rooftops from one of the city's few conserved ecosystems. Make your way to Comuna 13 to learn how the most notorious neighborhood in the country has reinvented itself. See stunning examples of street art and graffiti that puts the political and socio-economic story of the area into context. Once the center of the gang wars and guerilla activity, the area has been transformed by the local community with the help of government projects such as a giant escalator that runs up the hill. Visit the iconic sculptures by Fernando Botero along the Botero Plaza and take a walk in the Parques del Rio.

I had the best time in Medellin during this excursion. Mateo aka Mathew is one of my top guides ever. He speaks English and gave me great historical details of the city. He went above and beyond to give me the best experience. I wish I could give him more stars instead of the maximum 5 star.

What an amazing tour! I enjoyed every second of it. The Comuna 13 portion of it was to die for. I hope to come back one day and spend more time at every place that I visited. The tour guide (Hector Gaviria) was phenomenal. What a pleasant gentleman he is. It felt like I knew him all my life and he is also very knowledgeable. Great job Hector.

The tour was above and beyond what we expected! Tour guide, Luis was very friendly, patient (we took a lot of pictures and did a little shopping) and made our trip very enjoyable! The tour lasted a little more than what was estimated in the description but we didn’t mind at all. He was very thoughtful in taking our group places a little out of the normal tour and met some of his friends around Comuña 13. Everyone is as very friendly and welcoming!
