The directions for the meeting spot was very clear. Once you leave the Clock tower, cross the street and stay to the right of the horse statutes. You also get a message via WhatsApp to confirm everything. I appreciated the bottle of water before the start of the walk. Our guide, Ronald was very informative and patient. He will offer to take pictures for you as well. It was a great history lesson full of art and culture. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the Colombian culture! Getsemani is traditional and home to some families that you may see sitting by their windows as you walk back. Pay attention to the landscape so you can see the difference from traditional to modern. The snacks and ice cream were a yummy treat to beat the heat and we ended the tour back in the wall city. Great tour! Exactly as advertised.

Overall the tour was worth the money. I believe our tour guide name was Duran. He did a great job explaining the history and showed us all the graffiti spots. He also was a photographer too if you needed a quick picture. I will say the following were not include: • Local snack with fruit juice • Ice cream • Live painting show However, the tour guide made the tour worthwhile. Would recommend!
