About the Guru

We are a group of people living in Comuna 13 who dreamed of having a tourism company, but then we realized that our goal was beyond bringing tourists to know new places. We understood that we could use tourism as a way to bring social development to our community, which is why we are now an organization that is always willing to help those who need it the most.

Great tour and a brilliant guide. Sergio is really nice, very spiritual, speaks an excellent English and shares with you the background of the place from many perspectives which makes this experience genuinely complete and memorable!

tour was fantastic ! Sergio is from Communa 13 so it was very authentic and gave us a first hand perspective of the area. This tour was very informative and a great excerise exploring various areas in this community. Really humbling experience! After the tour we stayed in communa 13 for hours eating street food and supporting the local vendors. Felt very safe, welcomed and embraced would highly recommend

Hi Meme! We are pretty sure there was a mistake with your review because the things you say are really good but you gave us 2 stars! Anyway I hope people can see what happened. Enjoy Colombia this is an awesome country!
