Juan Carlos was not the guide; he is more an administrator for a team of guides. We used zippy tours. Wasn’t expecting the transformation of the comuna to be so total- It seemed to be a thriving bustling community. Interesting insights into the violent groups thst took over barrio life.

Response from Juan Carlos
Good morning.... I am not an administrator of guides, I am a tourist guide and I form a group of local guides to my enterprise. We also give work and formalize local guides. As I told you, we manage two types of tours, one freewalking tour and one private, likewise we have formed an alliance between several companies called THE TOURISM NETWORK OF THE COMMUNITY 13 which we help in a community way under a social system to improve the community 13 therefore we help each other.
