Tour description

Welcome to Medellin!
My name is Sara and I invite you to live the best experience in Comuna 13 of Medellín, in the company of a local guide.

Our guides (Sara, Andrés, Eirene) will tell you about their experiences in that period of terror, for them and their families, who witnessed the cruelty of the clashes between the diferent armed groups, the wounded, the dead, and the forced disappearances. You will witness social transformation, through urban art.

You will find on the tour murals with historical significance, told by your guide, street shows, (dance and improvisation) you can make your own graffiti, you will go up to the viewpoint, through the Mechanics Escalators from where you can observe much of Comuna 13 and Medellín.

You will also find urban art galleries, souvenir sales, cafes, bars, restaurants, handicrafts, the traditional ice creams of Comuna 13 (mango biche and maracumango), typical gastronomy and much more.

Spend a pleasant time, alone or in the company of your family and friends.

You will enjoy a safe tour and want to stay or return to our Comuna.
