Really great exploring Comuna 13 and going up the cable car to get a great view of the valley of Medellin. We ended only going to a small indoor market for the exotic fruit portion of the tour, was hoping to see a bigger outdoor market but the fruit tasting was still great. Our guide David was excellent, we had a great day and would recommend this tour!
