About the tour

I am a resident of Comuna 13 of Medellín, improviser of RAP and tourist guide, I will show you how a commune despite its violence, social abandonment, discrimination and internal war could through art and the HIP-HOP movement become a tourist attraction, where you will enjoy the culture and a pleasant atmosphere full of color and innovation. You will also get to know:

* The world's largest escalators installed in a commune.

* 5 art galleries.

* 2 coffee shops.

* A slide in honor of a child victim of the conflict.

* A typical ice cream from the commune included in the tour.

* Library park

* 4 viewpoints

And indeed.... the story told by a resident and resilient of the commune.

I won't tell you anymore, come and live it!

Although I book a tour in English, it turned out to be a tour in Spanish, as it appeared that Afrodisíaco - due to his limited English skills - does not run tours in English.

I was passed to his friend from Venezuela, who was supposed to be fluent in English - but it again turned out not to be true. I appreciate the effort of the Venezuelan guy and a fact that he is a nice person (that's why I gave 2* instead of 1*) but besides language barriers his knowledge about the place was very limited - he basically read a history of the place from his phone (again with language struggle).

I cannot rate a Spanish version of the tour delivered by Afrodisíaco, but offering the tour in English by Afrodisíaco is a SCAM. Even if it is a gratitude based service people invest their time, so that's why I consider it to be totally irrespectful and misleading.

Afrodisíaco es un excelente guía. Fue un tour muy interactivo, como una buena conversación. Aprendí mucho sobre la historia y los proyectos de transformación de la comunidad. Muy recomendable.

El tour estuvo buenísimo , no solo recorres el lugar para tomar fotografías sino también vas escuchando los relatos de cada acontecimiento y puedes interactuar con gente de la comuna que son muy condescendientes con los turistas.

100% recomendado.
