The tour didn’t start on time and we were made to wait in a very overpriced cafe with bland drinks. Although it’s advertised as a free walking tour, the guide made us feel obligated to pay certain amount-actually came back to us after we paid to ask for more money when the price is a suggestion and we didn’t particularly enjoy the tour

We are Germans, so our rating is quite hard 😄. The experience was very smooth. We had a small group and there was no problem walking around. Sebastian is very knowledgeable, he builds his stories in an engaging manner, so you won't be bored.

World Lion were great, and Laura was a really fun guide. Lion helped us join the group when we showed up 10m late (traffic), helpful and easy to reach on the phone and find at the meeting spot. Laura had a truly warm persona, with a charming way of informing us of sometimes-devastating history then quickly lifting us into a brighter or funny relief, or sharing insights into her own personal life and relationship with the area. The area is really vibrant, bustling, loud, interesting, and Laura and Lion did a great job showing us through it.

The tour is very touristic and standardised. The informations are the same you can find anywhere on the internet, it’s better to walk in the comuna 13 by yourself
