Full description
Start your day with convenient hotel pickup. Meet your guide and begin your tour to experience Medellín like a local. First, you'll be introduced to the graffiti and their meanings on the Poblado neighborhood's walls, which you might have walked by and never noticed. From there, you'll be driven to the downtown area of the city to experience a vibrant part of town. There, see the street art that transforms the gray walls into colorful spaces with stories, and start to learn about some of Medellín's evolving history and troubled past. After downtown, head toward a parking lot close to the Comuna 13 district to park the car before your private group takes the famous cable car up the hills. Make sure to take in the fabulous panoramic views of the city on the way up as your guide tells you more about the surrounding area and its history. At Comuna 13, the real fun begins. Your enthusiastic guide will explain all the positive changes made to transform what was once one of the most dangerous communities in South America into a symbol of the new Medellín. Enjoy time to take in all the amazing street graffiti and ride the electric outdoor escalators to the top observation deck, which offers incredible views. Listen to insights about Medellín, interesting stories from the guides, meet the locals, and try a famous local popsicle before returning to your hotel.

Manny was amazing! He didn’t just show us Comuna 13, he took us all over the city. He was informative and enthusiastic. I was an abnormally rainy day but that didn’t stop us from having a great time! He had umbrellas for us and everything we needed. After taking a ton of amazing photos and exploring we finished with a nice lunch all together at Mondongo’s. You won’t regret booking a tour with him!!!

My group was so happy we booked this tour! Manuel (Manny) and driver Sebastian took great care of us as we traveled though Medellin and Comuna 13. They gave us the history of Medellin (with first hand accounts) and how it has led to the present - it is amazing how the city has transformed in general but especially over the past 10-15 years. Definitely worth the price for all this tour includes

Mani was a great tour guide. We were glad to book a private tour. He answered all our questions and he gave us lots of insights into the history of Medellin. His purpose was to create a enrich our views of the city with lots of Anekdotes and background stories. We really enjoyed the explanations to the murals and their backgrounds, the amazing view over the city (from the Cable Car). I would always book a tour again and I can recommend Mani for other travelers as well!
