Leandro was soooo caring. It was important to me to go on a tour with someone who lives in the Comuna, and he even showed us where his home was albeit, in the distance. I didn't have any change to get the bus back to the metro station, but Leandro wouldn't let me walk back and insisted he paid. The little acts of kindness like that mean the world to me. Highly recommend using World Lion Tour.

It was just okay. Our guide was nice but didn’t speak good unfortunate as it was an English tour. Some parts were very confusing as he didn’t properly explain things or events in context.

I loved this tour! Was great to understand the history of the city from someone who was born and raised there.

Muy lindo. Con gente local. Nuestro Guia vivía ahí y nos mostró la tienda de su tía y el local de su padre. Totalmente recomendable
