Leandro didn't do the tour - his colleague JP was our guide for the afternoon. He was great and had a lot of information on the various graffiti. He also made us feel very safe which is something travellers might worry about. We stayed in the comuna even when it was dark and completely felt safe and comfortable. The tour is extremely interesting with all the history this area has and I highly recommend JP for visiting comuna 13.

I really really enjoyed JP's company. He has a lot of knowledge and was very patient with us. :)

Our tour guide was Ferney. He seemed very aloof and did not provide a lot of information unless prompted. The tour seemed very short. He didn't wait to make sure the entire group was assembled before moving from place to place. We lost a couple of people along the way. I was really looking forward to this tour and it was a real disappointment.
